Thteed and Fob Families Meet to Discuss Possible Merger
This summer, the Thteed Family had a weeklong meeting with Fob Family Inc to feel out the possibility of a merger between Junior Member the Big O and Fob junior member S-Boogie in 23 years . A good time was had by all, though the Big O did not approve of the hugging that occurred.
An additional meeting was held in December to test the viability of this merger, where innocent kissing occurred. However, caution reigns as other suitors, unable to meet this year, remain eligible and available.

This scene is unique in that it was totally penned by Lady Steed. (This is not why it was cut.)
The ultimate reason this scene was cut is simple (and don't tell S-Boogie): the Big O has another long distance relationship with another girl named S-Boogie (what are the chances!) and although he has not seen her since December 2004, it seemed unkind to send her an LDotFMotNY letter with this scene included.
Lady Steed fought hard to keep it, since the event in question was included in the Fob's Christmas letter, but I prevailed.
Did we make the right decision?
You be the judge.
All I'll say is that the year-end kissing mentioned did not look so innocent to me....
