F*&^% That and Y0&^$ Too!

Encouraging Signs of a Proactive Youth

On the weekend, my daughter suggested that if she got over 10,000 likes, would I quit smoking. I was not sure that she could get this number as she did not mention where she was going to post it. So thanks to the power of social connectivity, I guess I have to at least give it a try. My daughter

“I don’t want to be engaged”
