Life Throws You a Willy

I was out for a shuffle and realized that sometimes, you just don’t see it coming. It was early Monday morning when I headed out the door dressed in my shuffle shorts, shoes, and shirt.  That’s a lot of S’s at a time when the only ‘S’ I really wanted was sleep. Shortly into my…
