The quickest of the quick takes

--- 1 --- It's taken me years and years but, I finally convinced someone to come with me to a circus class. Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, I present: your boyyyyy! That's a really, really nice looking foot lock, Mr. Josh! (All day long he meant to say, "Cirque du Soleil" when we were... Continue Reading →

What about when you have to wait?
