    I used to think that

    when you adopt a kid you'd walk through this walmart-type store... With kids on the shelves... And when you found one you wanted youd put it in the cart and go to cashier and you'd buy a kid.... 0__o

    Don't Ever Touch the Golden Tassels of the American Flag

    Things Haven't Really Changed That Much...
