Personal Ad Makeover Contest: Joshua (DURING)

Welcome back to Joshua's profile.  Tarzan's treehouse is pretty rickety.   There are boards that look loose, nails sticking out everywhere, and I'm pretty sure that's not the blood of an animal in that corner over there. I know, you're scared.  But we won't learn anything unless we go in and really examine the crime scene.   Hold my hand...

Tarzan scares Jane.  Jane runs away! (Want help making your personal ad less scary … [Read more...]
