    Resentment

    This is not right but I am resentful of this lady that I have been working with on a project. She has a beautiful house, 2.5 kids, she doesn't have an outside job and her husband is very good looking and provides well for his family. She has a tiny waist and no one would ever...

    A Crush

    I have this crush on a guy across the street. I have and never will do anything about it and never even told anyone except my freind. It just surprises me that I am old and can still have a crush.
