do i look like i want to commit suicide by having tomatoes thrown at me?

haha!! this is fun, michi. especially that story about your grandma and the dentist.

got a particular kick at #14. made me wonder what you'd think of my dog -- she can go on all night biting her nails near your bed. two of your least favorite things rolled up into one. drives me crazy sometimes, too. **ronf**

what's a ho?


michi said...

dogs bite their nails?? i didn't know that. i thought they did the decent thing and filed them.

ho is a slang term for prostitute.
