J’ai pense de me coiffe dans la mode de 1940. Je suis en la quarantaine maintenant, et je deviens un peu déprimé quand je passe trop temps dans mon lit.
Donc, me coiffe dans une mode belle et délicat, et je ne peux pas coucher sur mon lit et jouer sur mon portable.
Avoir quelqu’un idées pour mea cheveux ou activités dans la quarataine?
