The Olympics have the unique power to make people care about things they would never think about at any other time.

Can I have an order of fries with … Continue reading The Olympics Are Odd
Sibling Horror Stories
(Cousin Craig is back...) Dear Cole’s Mom (AKA—Katybeth), I don't know how odd this is, or if it's even noteworthy.
