Was It A Dream is PL OK. Thank you. Strange story but an interesting concept! Some people do write their own epitaphs, but that is before they die, I believe, not after. :)

PL Notes for Angela

This is one of my favorite love stories. Thanks for contributing it here. I haven't PL'd you before, so let me just say that other than obvious standard PL'ing, I only point out things I think sound weird or change meaning significantly. You can ignore these if you disagree.

4:37 she threw up her hands in a pretty affectation of despair, you say affection
9:08 'my Angela has known you very long, you say blown
