    Woohoo! I’ll have to think of some good stuff, but I will also be stealing some of your answers (I want long legs).

  • Reply Susan March 10, 2019 at 7:29 pm

    Glad I’m not the only one who would love a pair of long, long legs…

  • Reply HangryPants March 10, 2019 at 7:29 pm

    I covet long legs too! It would make jean wearing a whole lot easier.

    Also, I find it interesting that you like Gray’s Anatomy. I would think it would totally annoy you because it’s ridiculous.
