The other day I wrote to you about Skylar's proclivity to misplace things and how he wanted praise for going five months without losing his wedding ring. That night:
Eli: Did you read my post about your wedding ring?
Skylar: YOU FOUND IT?!
Eli: Found what?
Skylar: . . . [hiding his bare left hand] NEVER MIND!
At least he's exceptionally hot.
And now, your Pictures & Distractions:
