I’ve been swirling since first grade and a boy chasing harlot for about as long. Surely there’s something here for the respectable ladies of BB&W to learn from an enigma such as I.
Just a little reminder…;-)
A 21-year-old college student struggles with her attraction for older rainbeaus.
No; those aren’t maggots you see. Those are my pores…vomiting.
