McFlurry

Little known fact: I am scared of drive-thrus. This is a quirk that stems from my irrational fear of car washes, I think. Or it's born from some other bizarre facet of my psyche. I don't really know, but I have actively avoided drive-thrus since I got my driver's license ten years ago. My new... Continue Reading →
