Here’s something I don’t understand. We recently purchased this 12-pack of toilet paper because, well, everybody poops, right? Right (nodding my head). Now that that’s out of the way, I was examining the package and I can’t for the life of me figure [...]

Subterranean Snowsick Blues

You know what I hate most about winter? Not the snow. Not the ice. Not the cold temperatures. Not the treacherous driving. Not even shoveling, although that comes in a very close second.
