Lost in translation

So, allow me to explain the use for this 'chapter'. First off, it's not really a chapter. I've gotten a few replies in which some readers complained how the text for Mas y Menos in Spanish was kind of obnoxious. Fair enough, when I wrote the story I didn't realize you couldn't copy-and-paste the text from the website. That does make it a bit annoying. That being said, I wasn't all for the idea of adding the text in the chapters themselves. My reason for this is that in the original show, this wasn't done either. At least not in the clips I saw; I never understood what Mas y Menos said. But the text I'd written was on more than one occasion meant to be an in-joke to anyone who would go through the trouble of translating it using google-translator. That's why I've decided to add all the Spanish text, in the order that it appeared in the story, in this place. If you open two webpages at once, you'll be able to consult the Spanish text without much problems.

Hope this is acceptable,

My sincerest apologies for any inconvenience and annoyance this entire ordeal has caused.

P.S. I would have gotten around to this sooner, but didn't find the time.

P.P.S. Likewise I've written only a litte over the first chapter of the continuation. For now, don't hold your breath.

P.P.S. If I've forgotten any lines; feel free to let me know.
