Yesterday, I released the script for episode #110. When I told Paul, he called me cruel for doing so without putting out #111 as well.

I had every intention of taking a photo – honestly – but through some strange, unexpected happenstance, ended up devouring it before I got the chance. Anyway, this is more or less what it looked like:
