trouble on pier plaza

trouble on pier plaza by Janice Nigro It was pretty clear when I moved to Norway how I was going to make friends outside of work: Norwegian class.

controversy over a carrot

Controversy over a carrot by Janice Nigro If only I had made the surfboard a strawberry…my last thoughts as I was falling asleep one night recently.
