One Day My Prince Will Come

One Day My Prince Will Come

The phrase 'you gotta kiss a lot of frogs' before you find the prince never much appealed to me in real life let alone in SL. In SL you're expected to go a lot further than kissing before your prince will reveal himself and that doesn't much appeal to me either.  I'm not judging. If [...]
