Sandra is a writer, blogger, poet, artist, emotional disaster. She thinks far too much and sleeps far too little.

My favorite x-cuse. I’m pretty sure this is the worst letter for this challenge. Nope, I’m sure. It’s the worst. You can tell because I totally cheated. Obviously excuse does not start with x, but fuck it. It’s almost midnight … Continue reading
