My dad must be part canine because he will inhale anything in front of him, especially my brownies. My sister, the Drama ...

    Her hands are cold, moist; so slick that they cannot zip up the two sides of her black jacket. The zipper jams, revealing her paint-stained white tank top.

    Even when you're feeling down I'm there. At your lowest point, I am with you. I am by your side through thick and thin, but I can't watch you get pushed to the edge. I go to sleep worried about what you'll do. I'm afraid every time I say no. How much can you take bef...
