I Don’t Know How She Does It

Surfing the Internet is a bit like picking up a hitchhiker blindfolded, you never know who you might pick up, an old man, a young girl, a murderer, a celebrity crash victim or your mother.  You do however learn about the new acquaintance after you have a conversation with them and learn more about them. This is a risky business but it makes life more interesting. Maybe I should get out more?

I have decided to go to the movies more often but…there really aren’t that many good ones out there.

He was a grocery shopkeeper who specialized in wet fish. I think I am an artist (?)
