Friends.

At times I am reminded of just how strange some of my friends are.

For instance, one of my friends literally went to the North Pole for Christmas, she went to some obscure amusement park in northern Finland.

Then today she she arrived in the freakin’ Dominican Republic, to spend New Year’s there. 

And I am here, looking at her Facebook posts from all of these places, just thinking “wut”.
