But wait!  Mrs. Thompson added a codicil (and that's a wonderful word) to her answer.  If money is a problem, the future husband can pay for the announcements.

Twenty points for each correctly filled in blank because it's...ummm...oh yeah...Double Points Friday![/size][/b]

  It is (unhealthy) to go along feeling as you do.  If you have not already consulted a (physician), do so at once. Some (mental) disturbance may be the (source) of your trouble.
  Very often (repetative) work is prescribed for a case like yours.  If you had a (job) you would keep more regular hours and would be too busy to (think) about your condition.  Your (attitude) would have a change and you would probably enjoy yourself.
  Of course, you realize that you will be more and more (depressed) if you permit yourself to think you are not going to live.  Surely you will live if you try.  You will be happy and interested in life if you direct your thoughts and (feelings) along more normal and wholesome (things).

It is AGONIZING to go along feeling
as you do.  If you have not already
consulted a DOCTOR, do so at once.
Some HORMONAL disturbance may be the
ROOT of your trouble.
  Very often OUTSIDE work is prescribed
for a case like yours.  If you had a
JOB you would keep more regular
hours and would be too busy to THINK
about your condition.  Your ROUTINE
would have a change and you would
probably enjoy yourself.
  Of course, you realize that you will
be more and more DEPRESSED if you
permit yourself to think you are not
going to live.  Surely you will live if
you try.  You will be happy and in-
terested in life if you direct your
thoughts and EFFORT along more
normal and wholesome MINDSET.

No way that cop ate 336 doughnuts in 2 weeks.  I think that baker is telling a fib.
