There are many people in this world who actually use these hand held massage units for it's intended purpose, "Believe It , Or Not". Guess it's all in the mind of the not so innocent. Wand-5af0f...720c9f.jpg Wand-5af0f7d720c9f.jpg

I'm hesitant to ask how this happened in the first place and the fact that you had pubic hair at 11 is something else that comes to mind as well. I'd imagine that at that age you'd certainly be able to use a scissors. LOL ;-)

How is this a math teacher problem? I'd say it was more of an english word problem.

Wouldn't you think she'd have noticed all the socks that were missing? 100 socks don't just go missing without Mom thinking something is up. Years passing without these cum catchers being noticed only says that either Mom or you needed to do some cleaning!! ;-)

There are probably quite a few "Hobbit" children around the world who will one day forgive their parents for the names they were cursed with at birth.

Well, at least the kid who was getting put in the oven was hopefully able to get a visit from CPS and address the abuse from the shitty parents.
