    I think I know that tidbit you're on about, but that was number was for whatever the registry that the Kelvin had, and it was his grandad's birthday, IIRC.

    A typo as a result of typing with one hand and fending off a very affectionate puppy with the other.

    And then they were given each other, which means they're all short one of the promised virgins.
