I received an important message from Brose Lachian in my spam trap.
Brose writes, in pertinent part:
When the cocker spaniel daydreams, a recliner toward a dust bunny self-flagellates. A satellite for a fruit cake ridiculously writes a love letter to a girl scout from the burglar.

For example, a spartan buzzard indicates that the spider behind a short order cook graduates from the makeshift movie theater.
