“Well, you know I was originally thinking hazmat suits,” Cailin said to me as she adjusted her Christmas themed face mask. “But with everything going on, they’re actually pretty hard to come by. So we decided to go ultra-Christmas,” she shrugged with a glint in her eye. ‘Ultra-Christmas’ is an underestimation for the amount of […]

“We met at a club down the street. Now it’s a CVS.” Dean points down the block and adjusts his gold framed glasses with a mischievous glint in his eye. “But, I did buy Listerine there the other day. So I guess that’s how it goes.” Matt looks from Dean to me and just sighs […]
