Questions & Answers

    "Glad to be going, sad to go," "wish I could do this all over again, not really, just wish I could stay with you all," "you're going to miss me when I'm gone, lol, not true, I'm the one who will miss you all"

  • How does the saying go that uses the word, "almost"?

    Hi, thanks for the question. I'm not sure what you're referencing in that question, so I'll offer up thank you quotes with the word 'almost' in them. Hope this helps: "Almost forgot to thank you, how could I!", "You're almost the best, ok, that's a lie, you are the best, thank you", "Can you show me how to be as great as you, I'm almost there, not really! thank you for everything."
