Combining Roswell-isms ... My tabasco-free friend went Michael on me during our 285 South last weekend. I don't know why he did a Max to the Max but I think he wanted to have a Maria talk. (Translated: My 'non-Roswell fan' friend was so unpredictable during our road trip. I don't know why he was alternately nice and nasty but I think he was to have a serious talk about our relationship.)
