Lyrical Press | August 18, 2014
Waking up naked next to a good looking man is not a bad way to start the day.

My mother would put an announcement in the social page of the paper, the engagement section, not five minutes after gaining this knowledge.“I’m not so sure they’ll react like you think.” He’s a guy so he doesn’t understand the way a mother’s mind works, or his sister’s for that matter.“You tell no one.” I point to emphasize my words.“How do you figure you’re getting out of here if not through the front door? Dad and I are headed to the[…]”
