Re: New MoM playground?

How about an exercise room to work off some of that shrimp and other delicious food?! A few treadmills, a couple exercise bikes. No "spin classes" here. That has always annoyed me. You are not...

Re: What is Happening, part II

Seems very confusing. You live with your mother? Who are all these other people? How old is the bossy one? Anything over about 18 is not what I'd call a "girl!" I'm glad you do mostly like it.
