Are you a master colorful-goop-slinger? I’m… certainly not. I’ve not painted anything in quite a long time, and I wasn’t very good to start out with, so I’m sure right now if I did paint something, it’ll look like I did it with a paintball gun at 25 yards. But, if ...

So, if I could have any pet I wanted, I’d want a whole herd of polar bears. However, I’m sure something like that would require very specific zoning laws and whatnot. So, in the meantime, I’d want a whole pack of dogs. Granted, my apartment’s a bit small, so I should probably ...
