That Time I Got Tricked Into Watching Peppa Pig

I recently took a trip down to Raleigh for a friend's daughter's high school graduation. It's funny... A few months ago, I remember talking with coworkers about how I don't understand why people voluntarily go to graduation ceremonies. There's nothing entertaining about them.

It was the people. But since people make up the church, well, that's a conversation for … Continue reading The Single Guy and the Release
