Field Notes: This Was Supposed To Be Short But Now It’s Not Edition
Written by Thomas Saenz
Though Bwog Staff had a wonderful weekend and did lots of things, this young Bwogger here has an important test to study for tomorrow. In lieu of this, this Field Notes will be shorter than usual, but oh so good. Sit back, relax, and enjoy these stories. UPDATE: this is much longer than I was expecting, so relish in these extra stories carefully curated just for you. If you want to join in on this fun, email us your stories to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will include it!
