Nancy Drew Language (And Weekend Puzzle #257)

Attacks in the Office

That’s right. A few us were *attacked* by the presence of a bug. Not really, but it seemed like it was out to get us. A flying, long brown beetle the length of half a finger flew in and scarred three of us today. It happened so fast that I did not have a moment […]
