Lover Boy

I’m online shopping. For wife Number Two. I’m not looking for a trade-in deal. That wouldn’t be wise. I am not seeking to upgrade. Saying so would be a grave error. A mistake you say? Yes, most certainly. My dear wife, wife Number One, is well within earshot. She is sitting not more than a […]
