If you’re trying to win back an ex, you might send flowers, a heartfelt tape (0) ____or____
even try the classic stand-outside-the-house-and-shout-to-the-window move – but this

For 100 years, a hill near Reno, Nevada, has (21)   a large ‘N’ etched in white rocks
as a symbol for the University of Nevada. Innovative Brent thought he would add some more
letters to spell out Tina’s name across the hillside (22)   a declaration of his love.
Unfortunately, (23)   spending five hours writing the letter ‘A’ in chalk next to the
‘N’, he got tired and left. Local residents were curious about the mysterious capital letter
which (24)   suddenly appeared and traced the lazy love attempt back to Brent
through his LinkedIn profile, (25)   showed an image of the hillside message.
Tina, who Brent dated only for nine months four years ago, clearly left a mark on him as he
said he had (26)   regrets over the message – even if there may be legal
consequences. ‘I owe her a great (27)   apologies for the way I treated her,’ he
added.
(28)   for Brent, local authorities have since said the letter does not violate any state
codes and the University of Nevada believe nature will wash away the ‘A’ in its own time.
