“Our relationship began in high school, we were inseparable in college... I couldn’t have made it through my twenties without you! My toughest financial times you stood by me and never judged me.

When I am in the office, people tend to speak to me with a British accent, because I like to speak with a British accent. I do it so often that I don’t even realize I’m doing it anymore.
