Because I know the response I’d get and I don’t want the argument or already realize the flip side to what I’m thinking. So I won’t go there. At least, not anywhere but here:  It’s so cold.

NBF are surprised when someone they don’t know repins one of their pins on Pinterest. FWB want as many people as possible to repin their pins, especially when it’s something that is linked […]
