Taking a look into the good and the bad.
|I am not a writer. I cannot even pretend that I like reading. However, I have this feeling, aching me, that will not go away and I believe that if I get my thoughts out, they will disappear.|
I was 21 working at Twin Peaks. If you do not know what that is, it is the equivalent to Hooters, or Tilted Quilt. I had the good looks and a great personality to match so I thought why not make money, using what my momma gave me.
