Neat and Clean and Just Not Right

For a month now I’ve passed by My Dude’s bedroom and it is just as neat and tidy as the day after he and Dr. Kyle left for California to enjoy our summer home. And it’s just not right. His bed is perfectly made, mitered corners and all. All his pens and pencils are neatly […]
