um the story of
off the canal…
falling so deep -
got spiked by this nasty
spike at the bottom of the canal it’s disgusting –
she ended up getting stuck on it realizing
ohhh man there’s a hole straight through my shoe
oh that means it went through my foot –
well I got time for one more jump.
she did the jump -
rode all the way home on her bike
and mom just knew it was infected already
