That's also SOME BARGAIN you got on that Chi. Nice deal!
Oooh, yeah, the other one has a long yellow wedge inside of it too so you're probably right. I have two females! Guess I'll need to find some males, hah! I was so happy I found a Chi on Craigslist though a bit wary of where the meet-up was (a Starbucks in the shady part of downtown LA). I sent my boyfriend instead !
