Fried Bologna Sandwich

There are some things you just have to do when presented with the opportunity: Stand up and scream when your team scored the winning goal in overtime. Blow on a cut that stings. Kick your way through piles of leaves on the ground. Foot race your dog in a field. Put your bare toes in [Read On]
