Weekend Coffee Share: She-Hulk Edition

If we were having coffee, I’d have asked you beforehand, on the phone (or via WhatsApp, more likely) if you had any salve or ointment you could bring. Funny story — I offered to help my bro-in-law with fixing up what needed

If We Were Having Coffee… Summer’s Over

If we were having coffee… you’d notice I’m wearing layers. A long sleeved shirt under my beloved NASA tee, and a big sky-colored scarf wrapped around my neck as many times as it could possibly be. Yes, it’s early September

If We Were Having Coffee… The Big Move
