A Day In The Life of a Thin Girl

4 a.m..sit-ups in the dark, a few leg raises…10 push-ups before peeing like an arthritic racehorse. 4:25…head under the sink, hair standing straight up like a troll doll…gargle…make bed. 4:55…out the door to Starbucks.  Stop at all-night fruit stand for … Continue reading

Tits On The Bar
