Well, darling you know lots about me, and one thing you know is that I am 16. Will never divulge too much on here, makes me a nervous pervous, but if I want someone to know about me, as I've done with you in PM and phone calls, they will. Good motto, better safe than sorry, better quiet than verbal, better to use your two ears and one mouth...
