Filthy drawers

Bills Briefs-

An unpleasant topic today, but one not uncommon among men and women of a certain age. I’ll admit it; my drawers are filthy; and I mean beyond a place to hold my junk. To tell the truth, they are filled with crap. Surely I am not alone in promising time and again to clean it [...]
