    I remember when caps on bottled soft drinks

    Played Outside

    We stayed outside from dusk to dawn never caring to come home or even eat. Someone's mom would toss us some snacks and we'd just keep going. Riding our bikes all over and playing in the street and getting dirty beyond recognition. I loved to play hide n seek and tag and cops n...

    I was in my last relationship.

    He was a great guy. Whenever I was sad, I'd sit in his lap, wrap my legs around him and kiss his neck softly while he rubbed my back for hours. I miss that, feeling of security, I guess.
