15. I think ours is a way of coping...
Edited on Wed Aug-13-08 05:06 PM by pookieblue
what they are doing is something I would never do. For Instance, they refer to this one "It".

I guess they remind of the girls in "heathers". they aren't using humo. they are just being down right mean and think that they are above anyone else.

I don't associate with them..I only see them around town since it's a small town. And most people hang around down town at the local bars and pubs on the weekends.
