The Fist Bump 👊

I was walking down the street near my home on an evening stroll, when a chiseled specimen came toward me from the opposite direction. He was out on an evening run and was making some really incredible time. I was out walking, trying to get a bit of exercise, and I think he could tell. […]

My 10-Year-Old Turned Down an iPhone
