WS: To Don, who always helped me grow.
DK: Wow! Thanks. But that's kind of lame. How about: To Don, cute, but prickly like a hedgehog.
DK: Um, don't use that….
WS: To Don, who will someday get his hedgehog. To Don, the hedgehog is just for you.
DK: To Don Kosak, King of hedgehogs.
WS: To Don, I will never look at hedgehogs the same way again? To Don, Champion of the hedgehogs! To Don, "What, no, it's not a hedgehog, it's his head!" To Don, it's hedgehogs the whole way down. To Don, who is forever seeing hedgehogs.
DK: To Don, How do you know that Don doesn't know that the hedgehogs are enjoying themselves in the spring.
WS: To zen Don, who may or may not be there.
DK: Hee hee. Okay.
