Adam Dunn and the Nats are "in conversations"

Of course, the Nats were probably still mad with Adam for making out with Duncan at Brian’s party last July, even though Adam totally knew the Nats had a crush on him. At least that’s what Veronica told me, though she’s mad too cause Luke dumped her to hook up with both of them- or so Clarissa says, but she’s upset too cause of that time wh…
