We met May 1st of 2014; it wasn't her first relationship. She’d been living with a guy who totally neglected her. I mean he seemed to really like her, but just didn’t have time for her.
I’d heard about her online, and when I saw a picture of her, I immediately fell in love. I mean, she's ugly, and her DNA makes her a bit lazy & slow, but it just felt right & I could see us having a great life together.

They are just as likely to end up with the same dog pissing on their tombstone.
