gives her dangerous thoughts, dreams
pulse quickens, cheeks blush

      I had a rough day on WP yesterday when my site got all glitchy after I messed with my plug-ins, the culmination of which involved all the day’s comments disappearing. Thanks to the good (and patient) folks at WP, my site is functioning properly.

      Dad jokes always welcomed! 🐻🤗
