    Upgrade? Suffocation. I’d rather ride a Filippino bus next to chickens and children. That’s my kind of premium.

    Step in front of the projector.
    Look at the dazzling light.

    New gloves! How every flick of her slender wrist, or curl of one dainty finger, looked just so much more ELEGANT.
