4:14 am and Inspired. (Not really)


We’re in a mood:

“Give Me a Smile.
I don’t feel like it.”

No sharing of inspiring posts of the week. It’s Hump Day and we’re going to pile-drive smiles into the head with a Meta Picture blitz:

  1. Super Hero = Watermelon Boy!
  2. The best feeling…
  3. When the pizza takes an hour to arrive…
  4. Ding…ding…ding…
  5. How I feel when Trying on bathing suits…
