I stole that fro the New York Times and admit it.
Not only that, I use heroin. As tooth paste.
I am reuig. I cannot even spell “ruined”. I have sex indiscriminately with almost any young woman between ages of 20 and 40 that asks. (Although it is also true that I am true to my girl, my TAD, Terry, for the last five years — this is a memoir, it took place mostly in the past, a whiles ago. I don’t know. let me get back to you. I have never strayed.)
I thought my hero David Shields would hate Cheryl Strayed a priori, but no he loves her. In the literal sense only. I mean he loves his word. He lies. Not with her about her. Or not. Speaking of truth.

It took a week and four hours. meaning, Now that I am all truth-like it took them a week and it took me four hours because I had a 1984 Chevy Blazer.

I had no idea that the song would become as popular as it did.
Mark “Stew” Stewart my former client and I ma not Mother Dear, making this up he asks “what does Robert Hilburn know about rock and roll?? fair enough. go see my film
as referenced by mitt fibula matt cibula fucking spell check in pop matters 2003:
he quotes this couplet, from Post Mintstrel Syndrome
