Oh jeez is RIGHT!! :o

My boyfriend says he looks deformed and like a beagle.

He is always saying, ''why do you think he's so hot?? Should I just go smash my face and disfigure myself so you'll think I'm hotter?''

He'll never understand, whatta weirdo. But I don't understand why he has so many Vida Guerra wallpapers.
