So I’m about two years behind the trend, but nothing makes me giggle like a good Friends GIF. Or that GIF where the penguin gets shoved into the ice. Gets me every time. Anyway, last night’s post got me started and I couldn’t stop. My apologies in advance. And also? This is just for grins, people. Don’t take me seriously here. At all.

Mwah. *blows kiss*
