Coming to terms with girlie magnets on my refrigerator door

Abbie the Labrador is not merely a pet — she’s ‘family’

It only took me 31 years, but I’ve finally found the girl I’ve been looking for. She’s got dark hair and big brown eyes. She’s very affectionate, though she does tend to drool. She’s got a cold...

Yep, I admit. I’m a grown man who loves to read comic books
