  1. Whoa! Stop the world, I want to get off.
    When you actually stop and read it all, then think about, its probably very true for many women in this world. Being a man, one cannot multitask of course, so my wordswhirl is nowhere near as hectic as this one is. So you get a comment and thats it, trying to do a like as well is just beyond the realms of possibility for me, maybe next time 😉
