"Mama always said, you can tell a lot about a eprson by their shoes..."


ONCE I...worked at  head shop. , before it was legal anywhere.
ONCE I...gave everyone in my life a 30 day notice, packed up my truck with my dog & moved to the Rocky Mountains. Grand Lake, anyone?
ONCE I...possibly, it was rumored, was at a senior party & my best friend talked me into leaving without my parents persmission to go to Ozz Fest in St. Louis. Yeah, it was two a days for my softball team. That I was the captain of. I will leave the rest of that story to your imagination. 
ONCE I...watched my families home burn the ground. My very first memory to be exact. We made it out alive but it took me years to value things. If it could be burnt down, I had a hard time respecting it. Probably the root of my whole anti authority & conformig to the norm thing. 
ONCE I...gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, via emerbgncy c-section, 4 weeks early. The very best day & scariest day of my life.
ONCE I...established an alter ego. Her name is Towanda. I share this alter ego with my granmother. The character comes from Fried Green Tomatoes. 
ONCE I...had a crush on a boy. I had that crush all through high shcool, he wouldn't even glance at me. He's now the father of our amazing child.
