7. What is your favorite curse word?

Ass Cannon

8. What

I think people are their own mysteries, and I sometimes think about a girl I vaguely knew in elementary and part of high school. She was a little older. She always wore a friendly smile, and she seemed to always be alone. I wonder what happened to her. I'd like to turn her story into a book.(less)
