Spring burstsSpring buds

From the ground, yawning

Picture this: A high school party, lots of alcohol, star football players, and a young, unconscious girl.  A recipe for disaster, some might say.

While I kind of doubt that anyone really noticed, I have had a long internal, guilty struggle over not writing this blog post.
