My sister and niece came to visit me yesterday. It was the first time ever that I had seen my niece visibly anxious. (Albeit, I don’t see her that often… maybe once every few months)
What I saw yesterday alarmed me…. disturbed me even. Continue reading
I was never an active kid. My idea of exercising was riding my bike to the Pizzeria a few miles from my house so I could buy cigarettes from the vending machine.
