My Favorite Girls Are Working
I called up Alex on May 31 to see how she is doing. She was with Caren and Twirl (another former working student but not one of my own) in a fast food center.

Her Boyfriend's "Mom" is a She-Male
M. J. asked me the question because she thinks I may know the answer: "Father, I love my boyfriend and I think that he loves me, too. My problem is with his mom. She doesn't like me." The problem looked simple enough. I said: "But why should that be your problem? You are not the one marrying her... Sign in to see full entry.
