    Mildred got caught imitating as a cotton swab, and was sentenced to 8 years of Stapedectomy surgeries at B.A.M.C, Ft. Sam Houston, San Antonio, Tx. I suppose the lesson here is: _"one shouldn't cosplay as a cotton ball."_ 😏

    I want to see a game where you are ants vs wasps. Ants do more melee damage normally but the wasps can use their stinger for massive damage with cooldown. Then your kill streaks are predators like, spiders for 5 kills, ant eater for 7 kills, lawnmower for 30
