mrswinteriscoming, on December 5, 2021 at 6:45 PM

Covid testing at wedding
Tiffany, on January 13, 2022 at 8:18 PM

I was hoping this new Omicron strain would die out, and I know I have a lot of time, but at this rate I think covid might still be a thing (even if its very small and not a big deal anymore). Out of...
