chemicals whether it's because of just work done as the human race whenever a suit of clothes we ve been fucking given ourselves sincere in the womb and were feeding it to ourselves then we're paying it out into the sewer systems and then its being processed into the water processing systems anna maria drinking at a later date you don't know if they can filter out those drugs separatists is just drink your own p c i hide out a middle ground as i told you this time and again that those conspiracy theories answers gear in georgia cobble living solutions dep hacks onshore apocalypse acts when the reins zombies are coming but i really feel like and this is not a political thing i feel it people on every side of every possible pull or doing especially rage the heights of rage people are now and i mean i think you should have heard me when

followed eighty one i lived in massachusetts i hung out and went to school with a couple of girls in the mitchell family bonnie and surely we are from the same neighborhood in all in our early teens thirteen for fifteen body being the fifteen august of us i would say on occasions sneak around with bodies boyfriend chris who was seventy or the time he was a drop out in what skip school to hang out his house sometimes and we would sometimes full around we even had our last sexual account or a late one night and saint joseph cemetery two weeks before the murmur ok so bad news infatuated chris and had a very deep feelings for him so of course i never told her of our special dates fanny did however find out about another girl who was catching crosses attention i believe remain was christine and christine may bonnie extremely jealous and binding would try to meet up with this girl alone to beat her up and tell her to leave chris i cannot remember there being a pregnancy involved not one of mine but one of the two girls i don't recall this was correct
anyhow i never develop feelings for chris and our act escapades or just that really which as access foolishness than boredom andy's ice school skip school been there ok and it was maybe northern five times plus that one night in the cemetery yes we did have sexual intercourse at a seminar at at night in a cemetery and actually it was the last time we hooked up because he was getting suspicious so silly rachel for awhile ok so chris stems bonnie she's inconsolable and one day crew ass money to skip school and she did under the promised to work things out with her led her into the pine grove cemetery on the other side of town they could be alone they walked into some sort of small building there where he pulled out a rope from it a close lime had hidden in his pocket and strangled her until she died might lead
that day chris brag about killing bonnie to a girl too steam the new girl and some other people and even brought them out to see the body which in turn which later that night without him knowing christina when told the police he was can arrested and convicted and sentences seventeen to twenty years for when i lost touch with everyone when he asked where he did it he stated he was tired of money being jealous all the time constantly hanging around i thought he was a player but in the end he was just a murderer one that i had sex with woe and vonny was laid to rest and saint joseph cemetery yes the sand cemetery chris and i had last sexual encounter and begin a third time she's mentioned having sex in the sector and while she knew it wholly shaded his stone wow that's
so frightening at first i thought it was the murder it sounded like a murder that normal movie rivers edge of course yes we all love because i'm in love with crispin lower it sounded like the internet that was based on an actual murder so i thought it was that puts up yeah may think of double jeopardy stirring ashley judd also get em we're in framing no tommy redounds we're doing our morgan freeman and then she was in several movies freemen this is the one that makes her husband set her up and makes it a glance murdered him and then at one point he locks or into a mausoleum cemetery in new orleans seem no he looked shucks or into one of those things and then she's just like the names are created the movie ends yet just do it efficiently moving in
third lie that's horrifying shit like that that's like yeah we did some really fucked up things like when i was thirteen and fourteen and on drugs and i really like you know this grubbing up back rock issues hanging out her boyfriend and that message that nets i perhaps somewhat if someone had killed one of them right crazy usually more likely when you're under the airline everyone's kind of ratcheted hormones and jealousy and you don't understand what murdered death means ok ok this next one is from christian it says how you guys i'm a new listener been bench listening for the past week you rock and i cry laughing than i gasped then i cry then i laugh i'm addicted that's what in relation to start that's how you start a fucking just getting an hour you make up a gmail address just didn't tell us bucking secret that you ve kept for
