  1. Her dot is beautiful! How old was she when she removed the dead possum? Sounds like she was underpaid! :)

  2. Hi Mia. I worked as a gardener the summer I turned nineteen. One day when I showed up the family offered me an extra $10 if I'd deal with the carcass. I'm not very squeamish, and $10 bought a lot of pizza back then, so I went for it.
