Muchos hombre han demostrado su indignación al escuchar que hay un día internacional de la mujer. ¿Por qué no hay un día para los hombres?

Lets face it, by the time you turn the big 3-0 people expect you to have your house decorated like a Pottery Barn catalogue instead of showcasing proudly all of your Voltron action figures and memorabilia.

My Beef With “Pet Friendly” Hotels

7 Years Ago…

It has been seven years already since the day I walked into the outpatient clinic at my local hospital for my dilation and curettage, commonly refered to as a D&C.
