Been following the story of Mr Asbo and son of Mr Asbo as this local to me.

Yes the strawberry does have the giggle factor.
Creepy guy story is funny. Poor bloke prob thought he was being romantic and then lay awake all night thinking it over.

The fellow who didn't realize the value of the comics sure had a good attitude about the whole thing. Guess that's good since it was too late by that point.

Oh wow, that is a giant Mr. Darcy. I do wonder what Colin Firth thinks. :)

Love the Creepy Guy story. I mean, poor guy...but it's sweet he's trying to apologize for the mishap.

I love all animals but I am terrified of swans. They hate me. I was attacked by several when I was little and even now they chase me through parks lol
