I should not be allowed to sing, but I do anyway. Saying I'm impressed by him, then, likely isn't saying too much because, really, what do I know? But impressed I am. [Oh, and the "M" and "D" stand for "Mom" and "Dad," in case you didn't figure that out. For once, he limited himself to one piece of paper.]
