and now may very well be in the situation of this poor girl below, waiting for whoever would have her.
Around us, things are not all that rosy either, as it is either this:
We may have reasons to complain about many things, but being bored, lately at least, isn’t one of them.
The best things in life may indeed be free, but these days, the most thrilling ones have come from prime-time TV.
