    All Alone In My Home Where The Buffalo Roam

    One of the things about living alone is that nobody bothers you, and yes it does get lonely sometimes but that's just the way I like it. I don't have to leave the toilet seat down or have to put the cap back on the toothpaste or even put on clothes because I just like to walk...
