2. You beat me by minutes!

I was going to post the same thought.

What's frightening is that this is how Mr. Dali perceived Ms. Welch. Scary.

4. He caught her essence I guess.

Actually that’s quite restrained for him.

6. I like Dali.

To me he was trying to say that her essence was being watched by a million people.
