Everyone Has A Story

Truth be told, I’d have initially preferred to sink my husky frame into the warm beige leather of the Lincoln Town Car that came to fetch me from a disturbingly populated Terminal D baggage claim carrousel at 12:21 A.M. Truth be told, I’d have fancied a snooze, a half chance […]
