Who’s Sleeping With You?

Life is all about choices.  I hear this record play in my father’s voice about 10 times a day, as I ask myself:  Wendy’s or Bojangles? Bills or this new makeup palette?  Studying or Netflix?   But sometimes, you have to make even bigger, more pressing decisions.  Decisions that will put your relationships on the chopping block….
