Wow! I didn't know anyone read my cards very often!

Ok, I won't count the voice cards.

Have you ever noticed how a new voice card starts with 182 words? Is this some subtle hint from the master controller to get 182 or greater words on each voice card?

It reminds me of some carnival scale. "Come one, come all. Demonstrate your literary prowers. Hit the 182 mark!"

How many of us actually reach 182?! Do you know how difficult it is to find something of interest to write about in 182 words or greater? More than half of my voice cards are no more than telling someone I read their voice card. You can't hit 182 with that.

Is John keeping some record of the average voice card word count? Where did the number 182 come from anyway? John's average? I bet the winning voice cards are all over 182. You probably aren't even in the running if the card is less than 182. Maybe the only voice cards worth reading are at least 182 words long.

How many more words do I need?
