Daily Count Challenge to... SlashLuv18!

I almost didn't see this in time, but something told me to check in on this comm this morning. I'm glad I did! Probably no words for today, but since the baton was actually passed two days ago, I'm glad to claim my 1,800 from yesterday (especially with all the problems going on at the moment) and call forth . . . agdhani! Grab your pencil/pen/computer/favorite writing instrument, and come on down!!
