Gratuitous Pseudopun

via Daily Prompt: Sleeve From the farthest corners of the globe, I hear the chorus of groans already, but I can't help myself.  I beg y'all's indulgence.  My quirky self demands momentary release.  This is crass and completely unnecessary, but since I've already posted a more serious response to today's prompt, I feel liberated to … Continue reading Gratuitous Pseudopun

AWR Monthly Update #1
