    Font - Strokedoutbear · 3d YTA. Hey, take 2 kids to a huge crowded theme park in Florida in August alone while I relax and recreate with my friends in the comfort of home. Ijust don't understand why he isn't just chomping at the bit to go. (Sarcasm) BTW if you are both employed you are not the "breadwinner" G Reply 4 12 3 ...
