One time my mom called me all freaked out about geotagging. Apparently my sister-in-law told her that people could find out where you were by looking at a picture you took if you weren’t careful. Not only did I already know that, I clearly don’t care if people care where I am. You can tell […]

Several Things

1. These are awesome.

Things That Occurred to Me While Mowing My Lawn
