Or I could be curled up in an armchair with about ten magazines and newspapers to keep me company...Or playing with Max, my elderly, overweight, Color Point Siamese cat.
Every day is different.
And if it's hearty belly laughter.... well, words fail me....
Alternatively, you should message me if you think we might enjoy talking to each other. Any laughter that might result would be greatly appreciated.
