Don't read this because it actually works. You will be kissed on the nearest Friday. However if you don't post this you will be injured (but won't die) in two days you now started reading this so don't stop. Post this on at least five other songs in the next 143 minutes when you are done press f6 and your lovers name will appear on the screen with big letters this is scary because it actually works.!!!!!! � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � � �
