    Can't Take Me Shopping

    Especially The Fuzzy Soft Things

    Haha, as I'm going through my list of experiences, I come across this one and realize I'm stroking a fluffy pillow. Sorry to upset all you animal activists, but the pillow is made of alpaca fur. It is the softest thing I think I've ever felt and I am in LOVE with it! Cozy.

    Look But Don't Touch Is No Fun..

    Yes I do. When I go to the store I touch and feel a lot of things. But I have never touched any woman in the store even tho I wanted to.. But I resisted.
