Miss Goody Two Shoes and Party Boy-30 years later

  I never should have been in the bar that night. It was like going into the grocery store when you haven’t eaten all day. Everything looks way better than it really is, and you gravitate towards the stuff that isn’t very good for you. And so it was the night I met my husband. […]
