        I choose my username based on what I want to say. I don’t keep the same name all the time. I had no idea that name was already taken and to me it’s not even an issue. There are other things for you to be concerned about than a stupid name. GET A LIFE!!!!!!!

    Padna pass that nuh boy. That is a “Ceeweek”. These were and still are the natural foods that our for-parents ate which caused them to live long healthy lives.

    Down by the river, washing your clothes on a river stone, we would catch some of these and heat them up when we get home. Yeah those were the days.
