  • I have never been that happy in my adult life.

  • That’s Ted Thorne. He was the principal at our local K-8 school for many years and he loved the kids’ light up shoes and often commented on them. He wore his new shoes to the Christmas concert last December and demonstrated them for us.

  • Looks like he at first was afraid then he acted like he was just excited.. 😊

  • This is grandpa’s reward for living in to the future. Gj gramps. 🙂

  • My roommate who is 30 was super depressed for a few months. I told her to get some wheelies and get over it (depression was over dating related shit). She did and she screwed around on those things for weeks. She’s married now. Unfortunately now I have 2 roommates. Maybe if I kept my mouth shot I’ve have a house to myself.
