Families can be strange. What might be normal to one troop could be an off the scale cringe fest to others. Some are open minded, some are not. Some share, some do not. Some over share to a point were the words ‘What the actual Fuck?’ occasionally tumble from their mouths as they proceed toContinue reading “How Weird is your Family?”
