Sob/Nip/Tuck

There’s a woman at my gym who I’ve seen for about a year and a half. She’s approximately five feet tall, in her mid-forties, with what I would call a body-shaped body and a human face. I know she’s Filipino because she often wears a shirt with her country’s flag on it. Either that, or […]

The Sneer

The sneer was my breaking point. This all happened a couple of weeks ago, so before you continue reading, just know I’m perfectly fine now.
