    …to her surprise she recognized a face from the past. It was her ninth grade teacher handing her the wallet that had fallen from her purse. She didn’t talk much about her high school days because…

    she knew that there were things best left unsaid because

  65. May 9, 2008 11:54 am

    The monkey gave her the choice..where shall I wax?

    Barry was completely bummed out that he forgot to eat his chow mein and started singing in a note that only far away dogs could hear.
