    10 Years And Counting

    A while back, while working for Wal-mart (thank God I don't work for them anymore), I met a girl who I'll refer to as Ann (her middle name). At first, other people were a bit weary about her, because she was a dead ringer for an ex-girlfriend I had recently broken up with. I must...

    His Name...

    Is Barnaby. What an awesome name right? Well, he has seizures every night before bed. I feel bad for him, but he said he got used to it. So at night, he would sit and wait for them to come on. I watched once and it was pretty scary for me. I dont know how he manages to...
