Post-Trump path to a whole new vision

But what happens when you feel a little too creeped out by someoneโ€™s Facebook creeping?

So, on Wednesday my dad and I went to Dairy Queen to get an ice cream cake for my momโ€™s birthday. The same Dairy Queen that my best friend worked at well over a year ago.
