So, during the summer of 2002, in collaboration with Jonathan Chisdes, he created the script. The show has been pre- viewed, Hanson said, for the Central FIoridaWriters' Guild.

What an incredibly thoughtful gesture! A care package can definitely bring a smile to your face. I bet she felt immediately energized. I better get this guy's phone number. I could use some TLC like that on a permanent ba- sis, but if I was sick, I'd settle for some hydrating liquids. Suffering from an affliction once in a while isn't the most pleasant experience, but it's life. In the dating scene, if you haven't heard from the other person for a few days, and warning bells start going off in your head. STOP! It doesn't necessarily mean the worst. Your date may have an illness of some kind or may even have had an accident. Not ev- eryone is comfortable letting others know when they are not feeling well.
