Here’s my thing. Nobody is going to stay mad at the stupid things folks say and do when they are kids. At least I won’t. I do, however, have a problem when as adults we play the victim when we have caused offense.

Hey, Boo! My name is Lisa and you’ve stumbled upon my own little corner of the world. I’m a 30 something-year-old writer/mother/wife who happens to love lipstick, high heels, blackness, and the truth. You’ll find a mix of everything on this site, so I won’t bore you by trying to define this space. I hope you stay awhile!
