Cancellations related to That Jerk Joaquin®

He is always showing up when he is least wanted. And now we have to postpone and cancel a bunch of things. UGH.

Oh great, just great. Joaquin’s here. Who invited that guy to my party? Was it you, Lindsey? You’re always inviting him everywhere, ugh! What? You think Joaquin’s harmless? Well, I guess it’s a matter of opinion, but if a tree comes crashing through my roof, like it did that time at Heather and Mike’s, I’m blaming you.
