Somebody, please

diagram this sentence below (or tell Goth to get over here). Thank you.


I just didn't feel like making the appointment, because I waited too long, and I knew his schedule would be full, but if I called he would suggest fifty million other options, none of which would have worked because our schedule was so tight, and I would have felt bad that he tried so hard to fit me in, and then he would be all sad, because we are friends, and graduated the same year (from different schools, but we know a lot of the same people) and then I'd feel like I had to move the schedule around so we could catch up, and I just couldn't take the stress of trying to rearrange everything, considering the Glennie would have had to be dealt with in the process.

Going to Britain?

You'll need to carry your tampons in your hand, and pack your keys, cell phone, ipod and laptop in your checked bags. When they lose your luggage, well...I guess you'll just have to take a cab home. Darn those key fobs.
