After a 16 hour day (6:30 AM to 10:30 PM), the above somehow came out of me in a side conversation that I ashamedly wasn't paying too much attention to. Sorry to the person who wasn't getting the attention they deserved, and thanks to whatever depths of me that spewed from. It's amazing how the smallest things can turn your day around.
More to follow, if I get the will to share again. Give me a few and we'll see.
