A Manly Mexican Breakfast

Ok, today’s plan involves a fair amount of manliness. Doing some DIY, shopping for paint, and probably punching a lion or something... Manly! Waking up hungry means I need a proper breakfast to set me up for the day ahead, or else I’ll become a proper grumpalump by...

Ferns

The ferns tickled her nose. It always did this when she fell over in the forest, But she liked it. It reminded her a bit of her pet dog from when she was a child in the 80s. His nose used to touch things as well, And it was a conservative government back then too. The...
