More Adventures of "Bit Mo' and the Man in the Moon"

A while back I told you about Mr. Papa Dellgirl and a project he contemplated finishing. Remember I explained how he verbalized his plans and how convoluted I found his process, how most of the time it seems "He don't bit-mo...know what he's doing...than a man in the moon?

It hit me again, "He don't bit-mo ... pay attention to stuff ... than a man in the moon!
