Dear North Wind, I thought he was different

North Wind Staff September 30, 2021
Just remember: take care of yourself. Buy a fish or a beetle, sneak in a pet chipmunk. Maybe watch a good movie, drink some apple juice, cry in the shower, listen to the “Phineas and Ferb” soundtrack... whatever floats your boat. Just don’t go back to this Tinder boy. You’re worth more than that.
