How I punished Fenix

On the first day of the year I was watching as a good friend of mine was engaging in pretty ridiculous behaviour. She is a very intelligent person, with high profile job and she spent  15 minutes trying to use a lighter that didn’t work. But it didn’t simply not work, it would just give a little spark and go off. Just enough to keep … Continue reading How I punished Fenix
