You know, there’s a time and place for everything. There’s a time to be polite, tactful and considerate of the feelings of others. And then there’s other times. Times when you just need to say it like it is. Sometimes that might be a simple “You Crack Me Up”, or “Your Ex is a Fool”. Other times it might be more like “You Suck”, “What the F” or “You’re on
There was that time in my life, not too long ago really, where it seemed like everyone I knew was getting married. Our lives were consumed by Martha’s Weddings magazine and putting together the perfect color palette. Come to think of it, my wedding might be one of the first real parties I put together.
