Maybe categorize them, so 25 of them you could say "never been out of the Americas, and there you f'n have it".
Serious C coming out in this one... and my belly ACHES from the giggles and my nose BURNS from the tea I shot out of it, thinking somehow I was on a safe section to wet my wistle... always know better Sassy, NEVER read blogs and drink at the same time...
Thanks for the direction here, this afternoon was decidedly giggle free until this came along ;)
