Pants On Fire

And not in the good way.  Unfortunately.  I knew Mr. Worldwide sounded too good to be true. A friend of mine raises his eyebrows at me in situations like this and just says, “stop being surprised.” So I had been exchanging emails with this guy while he’s working and vacationing in Europe. Allegedly. He admitted to me that he “chooses to live” with his parents. Who live in Washington...
