Soul food. 4. Favorite author?
Stephen King. He’s a little twisted and I like it.5. What do you think of open relationships?

Ah thank you so much for mentioning my tag! I LOVED reading yours 😊 it was so fun to learn more about you. Two things… you don’t like mac n cheese? Say what! Hahaha, I’m heartbroken on behalf of Mac N Cheese Lovers Everywhere. Also, what’s the tattoo?!
I’ve only met one other person in my life who doesn’t like mac n’ cheese! I think I’m an anomaly. The tattoo is my name, which now that I am older seems very vain but I don’t regret it. Thanks for reading and commenting!
