    Men Are a Mystery!

    I'm Missing Part of the Picture

    I guess, I just don't understand. I don't understand how one minute they can be smiles and laughter and the next a total b*stard. One of the ladies where I worked was seeing a fellow from the same company. They seem to hit it off rather well and seem to be destined for bigger...
