A 'loyal' wedding

How many loyalty cards do you have in your wallet right now? While you fiddle around and have a rummage in your wallet/purse, let me tell you how many I have: Zero. A teenage incarnation of myself did carry around a GAME card. I would have been better off getting a t-shirt that said 'I [...]
