    We go to restaurants.

    .. If it's one where they don't know me they give me the kiddie menu with crayons. I'll color the menu but I'll donut like a lunatic ... Blue bananas and such. Then I'll order from the regular menu.

    Oh But From the Mouths of Babes

    I am treated like a child for the horrible atrocity of daring to see the world as it should be, as it could be, not just as it is. I am treated like a child because i still believe in fairness and that it should be found in our lives given to the lives of others or at least...

    A times I still feel as if I need to ask my mom if I can do something and I'm 22 years old. She raised me right in ways, but bad in others.
