I’m All About That Face….

Just because you can doesn’t mean you should.  I mean…I can jump off a building; but, I shouldn’t.  I can smoke a cigarette while a tank of oxygen is free-flowing in my nose; but, I shouldn’t.  I can drive 110 mph in my car; but I shouldn’t.   I can eat a whole carton of ice…… Continue reading I’m All About That Face….
