Inspire Challenge: Clean Something!

by

Ugh… cleaning.  Something that never ends for me.  I pick up the living room only to turn around and have Cheerios all over the carpet.  Or I get my office straightened up and then after a crazy brainstorming session I have stuff everywhere (including salsa… how does that always happen?!) But despite my constant cleaning […] Read more…

A lot of the time the delivery of a joke is what makes it funny.  And most of the time I get the timing off and end up laughing before the punch line.  But since there was a lot of texting jokes going around this week, I thought I’d share some of them I saw. […] Read more…
