I’m not going to claim that any of these jokes are mine. I stole them from here, here, here and here. Thanks to those websites for putting these lists together.

For the first couple days we both laughed about how much we’re going to hate waiting, but it wasn’t […]Read more "I Don’t Know How Some Of You Do This?"
