Can I call you Ruffio?

And just like that, munchkins they weren’t. These are my boyfriends Gop and Nex fighting over me at school. If it were December of 2014, Gop would be writing me love notes and Nex would sneak up to kiss me on the cheek then run away giggling. This year they’re both still trying to getContinue reading “Can I call you Ruffio?”
