Spell it out, x it y, the something under cover/foot's as fat as its comfy cousin was ere she declined. She meant well, or well enough, and mean game though this new kid plays, she's still the means of support. Mean to mean is one thought. Mean time the apparent sun sheds light on things. Apparent things: seeing meaning seeming things. Marrying means to mean. I mean it. I do.
