			IJMC - Magical Grapefruit of Love

I've got a quart of grapefruit juice in the fridge, does that count?   -dave

 This is the Magical Grapefruit of Love.  It has been bequeathed upon you
 by someone who thinks you are really fucking cool.  This person might be
 your boyfriend, girlfriend, lover, pal, homie, Hausfrau, neighbor or
 someone else you don't even know.  This person finds you rather
 interesting, possibly even attractive, and just generally thinks you're a
 pretty good excuse to be alive.  Whether this person actually IS attracted
 to you is another question.  This is merely a token of affection for you
 to wonder at and appreciate.  The proper response, upon reciept of the
 Magical Grapefruit of Love is a hug, or a message of thanks, if this
 person is too far away to hug within a week of reciept.  Basically, the
 Magical Grapefruit of Love is a way to say "Hey, you're really damn cool,
 and I want you to know that."  Sorry if you were disappointed that there
 is no actual citrus fruit contained in this letter.  Unfortunately, at the
 time of writing, that miracle of science that allows grapefruit to travel
 through telephone lines had not been perfected.  But be consoled by the
 fact that someone thinks you're really a rockin' guy/gal, and would most
 likely help you out if you had a flat tire somewhere in the same state (or
 within a one or two hour radius, depending on the size of your state).
    The sender of the Magical Grapefruit of Love only asks one thing of
 you-- (besides the aforementioned hug) that you bequeath this Grapefruit
 of Love on someone else.  The Magical Grapefruit of Love grows in power as
 it is shared, and someday you may recieve this Magical Citrus Entity
 again.  Send it on.  Remember the elation you felt the first time you
 recieved it?  If you send it on, you may feel this again.  This is not a
 chain letter.  Nothing bad will happen to you if you don't send it on, but
 think of the bright spot it might put in the day of someone you think is
 extra marvy.
