Welcome to New Hampshire, Slow Children


My professor keeps talking. About the importance of punctuation?
I think spelling. And grammar are more important?
She? Puts way too much. Emphasis on…punctuation
I should have went? When the class ended,
but the nearest restroom was designated only to be used by pregnant elderly children and the disabled.
I ran into some friends I made. At my freshman orientation, they asked me how I liked university life
I excitedly replied I love fucking college guys!!!!
After, school I went to a nearby.
Restaurant and was told I’d start my meal with breadsticks and my table. Was ready in seconds?
But I changed my mind about eating. At the restaurant, I thought, of an excuse…to leave.
I told the waiter, “Sorry my stomach is not feeling well. I cannot eat diarrhea.”
I don’t often..Go to restaurants: alone.
I usually eat out my friend Francine. And I we, prefer the diner in our neighborhood.
They cook these delicious burgers and pretty waitresses! Refill your water glasses when you are low.
Next, I had plans. To go visit my grandma across town, she loves surprise visits.
On the way I grabbed a chicken, taco soda and hot dog from a street vendor.
Then, I stopped at my grandma’s, house where she offered — me? — a piece of cake.
“No thank, you I said
I already ate Grandma.
On the way…home. I got a call from this chick. I just started seeing!
You might say:things are. Getting hot — and heavy– between — us.
She had three hours to kill her friend. Had just dropped, her off downtown.
I, told her I was horny. And asked, if she wanted to have sex tonight,
to which she replied “I wanna baby.”
