Captain FPP: Why Aren’t They Born with a Mastery of the English Language?!

I’d love to tell you that the face above is the face of our child 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, but if you believed that, I’d also have a bridge to sell you and let you know that the word “gullible” isn’t in the dictionary. The truth of the matter is, eventually […]
