June 29, 2011


Did you ever pick up a good book and start reading? I’m not a big reader and I even do that. So imagine sitting in your favorite place with a good book. Now imagine that being interupted by people rushing a young man over to where you’re sitting, all dirty in his soccer uniform. They […]
