  1. You’re such a smartass on #22.

    And I suppose I’m an atheist if we go by the dictionary definition, but if we’re going by the general ‘non spiritual, doesn’t believe in anything’ stereotype about atheists, I’m not and you aren’t either. ;)

    And you don’t wear skirts *very often*? Well, I suppose we’ll need to get you into one to see how cute you look, huh?


  2. Ok then. I dare you to buy one. And wear it every day for a week, everywhere you go. Work, cafes, shopping, around the house….

  3. I’ve got the #31 problem. I hate actually sitting there for a couple minutes trying to decide on which address to subscribe to a list to.
