    Got 23 first time, but it was only halfway because I stopped it (I thought it would pause :P) Second try, 55, but I guess I cheated a little :lol:

    Darn…I only got 40. But I totally think it should give me 41 because I typed “one” and it didn’t accept it. Yet there it was in the final showcase. For real. I was cheated.

    I can’t believe I missed “you”! Show’s how self-centered I truly am.
