I think part of a best friend’s job should be to immediately clear your computer history if you die. Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you’re wrong. I totally take back all those times I didn’t want to nap when I was younger. There […]

Oh My God… When I arrived at work this morning, I had a brief conversation with a coworker I will call Annie; I like her very much and we have a good relationship.
