Mexican Men Are Incurable Romantics

Also, horny as fuck. I don’t know if it’s the light eyes, the guera status, the crazy color hair, the tattoos, the fact that I’m a girl who also works on engines and goes up masts and rescues boats, or simply the part where I’m a female in the near vicinity…but they are relentless in […]

So, Like, This One Time I Died?

So, Like, This One Time I Died?

Say that in a Valley Girl accent. It’s kind of funny if you have a defective but overactive sense of humor, like me. A Valley Girl preparing to tell a very serious story about a potentially global life-changing event but saying it in the form of a question. I crack myself up. But yeah, that […]
