I GET IT I GET IT!

Ok. So first and foremost, I have absolutely NO idea why i am posting this. It is absolutely mortifying and by showing it to the public i am taking the risk of permanently and publicly humiliating myself. So here it goes. Goodbye self-esteem, goodbye repuatation. I give you Lisa the not-so-genious.

This is a very ...intelligent...conversation that commenced between my little brother and myself at approximately 12:10 this morning.



Lisabelle says:
