I should have eaten that sandwich before I left, too late now. “Emergency calls only”, my stupid supposedly “smart phone” flashed at me just as I examined the… Continue reading Palm Trees and Beaches
You were told a couple of times by Facebook photos and blog posts to date a girl who reads. A girl who indulges in every piece of literature she can get her hands on. A girl who forgets her coffee because she’s trapped in the world of dragons and deception in Westeros. A girl who… Continue reading Truth Unseen
