Dreaming of the Other Side

Nice Camera! I Bet it Takes Nice Pictures!

I get a bit irritated occasionally at how uninformed people can be.

I try to tell myself that they just don’t understand and it’s not their fault that they don’t know better, but at times it can be difficult to remove the person from the ridiculous thing they just said.
