“I’m not bad…” – Halloween on Delmar

Sometimes I should listen to Lance. Sometimes. He can be right every once in a while. I might be wrong occasionally. He may or may not know what’s best with certain things. Sigh. As much as I didn’t want to go out on Halloween (a common desire of a post-work Julia), Lance reminded me that … Continue reading
