Just a quick note to say that MixedSignalGirl isn't dead, and that I'm glad.
I called her this morning, sorta breaking our rule about things like that, but they had this big blizzard up where she lives, and I needed to know.
"Hi, Miss! Are you dead from the blizzard?" I asked.
"Nope, just driving to work in regular snow, not blizzard snow," she answered.
"Well, I'm glad you're not dead," I offered.
"Me, too," she replied. "I'll be sure and let you know if I die, though."
"Fair enough," I said, and then we chatted for a couple of minutes before we ended the call.
