Resources are the key to making a dent in the pop- ulation, but there is an even bigger force at work right here in Volusia County. Citizens, various city staff members and elect- ed officials who have a passion for animals are finding common ground and forging bonds to help them. None of the involved parties knew then it would be the last contact between the heartbroken grand- mother and her troubled grandson.

Safe Families for Children SFFC is a national move- ment of compassion, origi- nated to provide hope, through a network of host families, to parents who need a temporary refuge for their children because of unmanageable or critical circumstances, according to Bethany's website.
These services are not adoption and not foster care. Host families receive no compensation for caring for children, and parents voluntarily place their children with them," the website states. Ford followed up his comments by saying, "Clearly we need to make an investment in that building.
We need to send, as a city, a message to the people that use it that we care about it. That it's going to get better. As you stage a construction proj- ect, you're going to end up spending more money, especially if we stage this over too long a period of time. The other piece of this is that I hesitate to call the locker room part of this as renovations. It's really paint and cosmetics work. We started down this road about two years ago and we knew what the Y needed.
The Y needed more space. So paint and carpet does not give us more space. So having said that, there are things that we can do. Citizen support for the YMCA proposal was strong.

When the city of Port Orange wanted to partner, I approached the Y along with an archi- tect. It was an unusual concept for the Y for us to be partners, so we created a methodology.

Friday, December 13, www. H hometown NewsOL. When our kids were young, I always made a big deal out of trying to convince them I had gone to great lengths to get the perfect tree.
My story included dragging a sleigh up to the top of a snow covered mountain and chopping the tree down with an ax.
Of course, I always got the tree at Scotty's Hard- ware but it was a fun game to play and the fact the nearest mountain was eight hours away didn't seem to matter to the children. In those days there wasn't as much snobbery about Christmas trees.
If it was green, it worked. My own dad would just cut a pine tree, but we always loved it. We had neighbors who just took a leafy branch from their oak tree and decorat- ed it. That worked for them. No one cared about perfect symmetry and such. When you think about it, going outdoors to chop down a living tree and then dragging it indoors is a bit strange. First, we kill it and then try to make it appear alive and standing for a couple weeks. These days, lots of people resort to a fake tree.
Some of these look almost real, but most bear no resemblance to an actual tree. Have you seen the silver tinsel tree? Scrawny and metallic, I don't know what that thing is trying to represent, but I bet if you hooked it into your TV, you could get free HBO. Naturally the more real a fake tree looks the more it costs.
The price of a good fake tree is about equal to that of a real giant sequoia. The folks who put up fake trees usually insist they can't deal with all of the shedding done by the natural ones. There is no doubt that if you buy a natural Christmas tree, you will wind up with a carpet of brown needles on your floor.
To try and keep this to a minimum, the idea is to get the freshest tree available. The lot that has had a thousand trees for sale since Halloween is not a good choice. Some of the big home improvement stores get their trees very early, but have enough room to hide them until the market kicks in. There you have to start poking around the lot sometimes before Labor Day to insure they are not secreting away trees to be sold in December.
A while back I made the mistake of buying one of those and the salesman made a big deal out of cutting the end off the stump so the tree could suck up water to maintain freshness. This guy deserved an Oscar. The tree had been dead so long it had turned brown and then they had hit it with a can of green Rustoleum which they have plenty of. That thing couldn't have sucked up water unless it was wrapped in ShamWows. Each Christmas, it is always fun to string lights on the tree.
Some people buy the light strand so they can light the tree with one wire. That is a big mistake. These lights are made so that if one light does not work, the entire string stays dark. Trying to find one loose bulb out of a hundred usually takes till Easter. It is a better buy to get several strands with four lights on each.
At least on Christmas you will have something lighting up. Remember those Christmas lights are manufactured in a third world country that only achieved electricity last week and the kids making the lights have no idea what their purpose might be. Trying to keep the tree standing is always a challenge. Once I took the red metal stand with the three bolts and filled it with concrete to try and get some stability.
That didn't work though the tree holder did make a nice boat anchor. But look, I don't mean to be a downer. I love a nice Christmas tree. I hope you all manage a pretty one. As for me, perhaps this is the year when I do climb that snowy mountain. Tuesday, Dec. Linden and Jennie Woods.

Highway 1 Oak Hill, Florida Vice Mayor Herzberg is delighted with the success- ful outcome, but a major concern remains. What about all of the ani- mals without owners to pur- chase a certificate and drive the animals to City Hall, then care for them after sur- gery?
Caring citizens all over Volusia feed large groups of feral cats at shopping cen- Mr. Baker said as of Oct. But those animals multi- ply at dizzying rates. On a recent Wednesday night, the vice mayor made her way to a site in Deltona where fellow volunteers trapped six feral cats for transport to Halifax the next morning. They were taken to another location to recuper- ate before being released.

It's working for us; that's all I can tell you. Vice Mayor Herzberg said the organization is the main liaison between most of the cities in Volusia for informa- tion and grants. Tuxedo Park is a cat colony where the cats are captured, spayed or neutered, and returned.
Pet Smart Charities representatives got wind of what the city was doing and suggested the city apply for the grant. It was awarded in a record amount of time, she said. Mihalic and CCFAW president and co-founder Cheryl Robel have spoken at commission and council meetings throughout the county, and have advised city staff and officials about what works.
Mihalic said. The test colony at Horizon Elementary School in Port Orange has given way to 14 others in the city, 13 of which are well under control. The 14th, at the 7- Eleven at the corner of Tay- lor Road and Williamson Boulevard was waylaid by construction and some well- meaning people who were inadvertently keeping the cats from being trapped.

I would also like to tell this person good luck. For more than 10 years, I have been begging the City of Edgewater to encourage some new restaurants and not just pizza places. All of the places this person asked for I would like to see here also.
Not only would that bring more to the community it would also open up some New Direction - Barbe-Q-Barbies - All Over You (CD situations for some of the locals. Sadly though, it seems that the City of Edgewater and those who make those decisions have no desire to improve this city. They only want to build more homes that sit vacant. It may take an election and getting rid of those who are making all these bad decisions.

It has happened not just once to me and I want to make sure everyone is aware. The meeting focused on the proposed use of seismic air- guns to look for oil and gas deposits deep below the ocean floor in an area twice the size of California, stretching all the way from Delaware to Florida.
You could go deaf or be forced to move. That's what it's like for sea life that is subjected to seismic testing," said Rebecca Marques, Florida campaign organizer for Oceana, "except unlike in people, a deaf whale is a dead whale. These dynamite-like blasts are so loud and constant that they can disturb the vital behaviors of fish, dolphins, whales and sea turtles, causing temporary and permanent hearing loss, driving animals from their homes, disrupting mating and causing animals to become stranded on beaches.
The government's own estimates show the use of seismic airguns in the Atlantic will injure and possibly killdolphins and whales, including nine critically endangered North Atlantic right whales, of which there are only approximately left in the world. In April, Oceana released a report outlining the threats of seismic airgun use to marine life and coastal economies along the East Coast, including the potential danger to commercial and recre- ational fisheries, as well as tourism and coastal recreation, which puts more thanjobs at risk in the blast zone.
Seismic airgun testing would be devastating to all marine life in the area, but particularly our endangered right whale population. We are committed to partnering with Oceana and Surfrider to take action towards a quieter ocean," Heather Murphy said. The petitions call on the U. Senate and House of Rep- resentatives, also have called on President Barack Obama to stop seismic airgun use. Overcoming obesity in early childhood Early childhood obesity is one of the major issues we are facing today.
I had the opportunity to attend this training in Atlanta. With these goals in mind, it gave me ideas to bring back to my own classroom, ideas to encourage children and families the importance of physical movement every day.
It was not only for children, it was for adults to enhance their quality of life through movements. It has been a nationwide obligation to encourage healthy eating and more physical activities in our daily lives.
I want to encourage families to be more proactive in breaking the trend of childhood obesity and to encourage more healthy eating and more physical exercise.
We as parents have got- ten away from physical activity since they have created electronics that keep our children in front of the television and not outside running, walking, throwing, hoping, jump- ing and being more active.
It has really been one of the rea- sons for our growing problem of childhood obesity. We have gotten away from sitting down to eat dinner, instead grabbing a quick meal from our fast food restaurants. Childhood obesity has brought everyone to the realiza- tion that we have to encourage healthier meals in our schools since most children spend the majority of their day in school and the best place to begin to encourage healthy eating would be in our school systems.
In Head Start, we encourage children to try new foods. We model healthy eating by trying the foods with them. We set the tables family style and each child places every com- ponent on his or her plate.
We encourage each child to take a "No Thank You Bite. I can say I have experienced many children throughout the years who have come to my classroom who would not try anything. Children learn what we expose them to and I can honestly say through positive modeling and the awesome training I received, New Direction - Barbe-Q-Barbies - All Over You (CD make it a priority to model and encourage healthy eating and 45 minutes of physical exer- cise with my students every day.
I want to encourage every family to be more proactive with your children. Just know that we all win when we exer- cise and eat healthier. Judging by some recent real estate deals, they believe Volusia is going to do just fine. Not just the Halifax area where com- mercial construction is booming and there's a ton of projects of the drawing board, but countywide.
Of course, the Halifax area still gets the biggest prices. That's just a small slice of what's going on in the area. For further proof, look at the sudden resur- gence of Consolidated- Tomoka Land Co. The Daytona Beach-based real estate company just completed the sale of about 3.

Consolidated-Tomoka also announced it also expects to soon complete the sale of 6. How much this contin- ues into will depend on several factors, espe- cially how the national economy reacts as the Federal Reserve Bank lightens up on its stimulus action.
But, for now, it does provide a ray of hope. After huge growth for several months, the auto sector in Volusia finally stumbled in September, keeping the growth in taxable retail sales to just 2.
Hopefully the drop in September from last year was just a one month cooling off. The auto sector had been red hot since last year.
All other Album) sectors were up, so it's too soon to worry.

Mariah said it's the track she worked on with Stargate and Johntha Austen and that it's an emotional ballad that people cry when they hear it but it's also a current song.
From previous reports about the album, it appears to be that Bye Bye is the second single. Mariah said they are working on a remix for it now. Mariah joked about not wanting the album to be released on April 15th because it's the day taxes are due in the US.

I feel better Yesterday I needed fresh air. I went outside in the freezing weather and ran like crazy, I ran like I didn't run since I was a kid, before my muscular problems, I ran untill my legs and my lungs were hurting. If it wasn't there are still respectful fans, I would have taken a few weeks break, but the moment is badly chosen as it's now Mariah needs our support and our love.
After all I read on messageboards yesterday towards the artist we are supposed to support through all, I needed to vent, I'm not a couch fan for proof I even ran yesterdayI stand up for her, anytime, everywhere, I don't say Mariah is perfect, I'm not that dumb, nobody's perfect, but for what I can judge after being a fan for more than15 years, she's getting close to perfection as much as an artist and as a person for what I know.
I don't pretend to make garbage fans change their mind, if you don't like Mariah like she's today anymore, go away and spit your trash on someone else.
If you want the young Tommy days Mariah back, forget it, it was not her, if you want to hear the style of songs she performed 15, 10 years ago, forget it, play your old cds, if you want to criticize her, stay positive, don't insult her, her performances, her way to dress, her body, beware there's something called karma For the others the trashers who sent me insults regarding my post yesterdayI only have one thing to say, or no, here's an extract of a spit from Bishop Lamont Dr.

Below, the singer talks more about how she had to deal with the pains of her past to work her way back to the top.
I grew up with such dysfunction that I was just used to it. I knew that I needed to be singing and expressing myself, or I never would have gotten through that period. I do believe that I learned a lot from him, and that he really did believe in my talent and I am very grateful for that.
So how do you keep your artistic integrity while you become a corporation? No matter where I went, there was always this sense of not really falling into place or into one category. I moved around a lot when I was growing up, so nobody knew me and I was never one thing or the other. I promised myself when I was a little girl that I would never forget what it felt like to be a kid. I never wanted to grow up and be out of touch with what that feels like.
She was an opera singer and went to Juilliard. She still sings and was a classically trained musician. But she instilled the belief in me that I could become who I am today.
So my mother thought, 'Okay, she has an ear. And that year-old inside me is an eternal optimist. I know what it feels like not to have fame or money, and I do still feel like that same person in many ways. I have such faith in God that I really had to surrender everything and just know that I was going to be okay. More than anything, it was learning to grow up and take care of myself.
Not treat myself like the corporation wanted to treat me, but treat myself like a human being. Everything is always going to be all right as long as I hang on to the person inside of me.

As reported this morning Macy's to debut new spring lineup of celebrity ads Macy's Inc. A Spanish version of one ad will run on Hispanic-geared television. The new stars for the national TV ads will be joined by domestic entrepreneur Martha Stewart and tycoon Donald Trump, holdovers from Macy's original star-packed campaign last year. Analysts say the celebrity ads have helped get shoppers to look at Macy's and the celebrity brands it carries, but that the Cincinnati-based retailer must show budget-tightening shoppers the value they can get from the branded products.

The online gossip turned on Carey over the weekend calling "Migrate," her collaboration with rapper T-Pain, "disappointing".
Caustic Hilton upset Carey by claiming the song will be the singer's next single, and stating "it sucks. She added, "I'm definitely not even releasing "Migrate" as a second single.
Tip picked up on the first ring. I don't know if you remember me. But this is Beyonce. I met you earlier last week on the Set". So what's on your mind, 16? You called my hot line so I'm assuming you looking for something".
To the point, I heard that you could get me into the club Chubbys because you work there". I work the club, but I don't have a position with their organization, you feel me? I don't work there but my podna does. He'll get you in. No wristband too. You need anything else, 16? Get use to it because it ain't changing. Even when you turn 17 in September" he said. Even though she ain't 17" he chuckled in a high pitch voice. Ima call my nigga. He's the bouncer. Tell him your name is 16 and he'll get you in".
Thanks again, Tip" I said. I clicked my phone close. I felt dangerous, alive, and naughty. I had called a drug dealer and he was going to pull some strings so I could get into a club. This was too much fun. And it was only the first week. What more was in store from the characters of Tip and Mr. Carter and even Michelle. I went to the club, danced my ass off, and didn't think about Lyndell one time. I left Houston in Houston. This was my new life. Momma forgive me, but as much as I love her cooking, I could not get enough of the buffet style lunch and dinner in the dining hall.
BBQ chicken one day, meatloaf the next, and always with a strong helping of rice and cabbage and a few rolls to boot. Knowing at any time in the day I could go and get my grub on with my meal plan was about as mentally pleasing as a vibrator was physically pleasing. I used it to my advantage eating as often and as much as I could handle, with or without skinny Michelle at my side. College life was still new to me and the friends didn't come as easy as I thought they would.
All I kept remembering was when Michelle had told me the Greeks ran the school and if I really wanted to branch out and make friends quick, the easiest, or most effective way would be to look into pledging.
A few of the popular girls of the school had spoken to Michelle and I in the dining hall. You had to start IGing in order to go through the process of pledging for a sorority. I was cautiously interested in it, but Michelle quickly turned it down. The girls smiled, a truly stank smile, but left our table and moved on to the next one.
I knew i'd have to decide one way or the other if I was going to become IG. I held off on using my credit card for a a week, but when Michelle mentioning having to go to the mall, I was all on it. I bought a dollars worth of clothes, paid for lunch, and bought two new purses, and when I looked at all of my receipts, I was sure I looked just like my dad the last time I saw him peep a bill.
If I wasn't more careful, I'd max on this card in less than a month. I had to become more responsible or learn some self control, or something. Remember why you are here Bee, is what I kept telling myself.
It didn't take long for me to get use to college, as far as the school work went. I already had experience with intense course loads and lots of studying. I didn't have to go through lousy public schools and become shell-shocked by the transition to college, like so many other first year students.
As the weeks passed, I could tell which students would contribute to lowering the graduation rate and which we destined to become alumni. Most of the classes shrunk by 30 percent as kids either dropped the class or just stopped coming to class. While I knew I probably could skip class and still do well, I attended because I actually enjoyed the material. I learned a lot in Criminal Justice, had some interesting reading assignments Album) Lit, and even got a kick out of math, but the New Direction - Barbe-Q-Barbies - All Over You (CD of the week was definitely Mr.
Carters class. He always had some out of left field scenario for us to debate over, like abortion and water-boarding. The fact that he would never tell us if he actually was a former drug dealer only added to the allure of it all. While my other classes started getting smaller the more I went, Mr.
C's class remained full. The conversations were too lively and the teacher to engaging for us to skip or drop. And I soon learned, Mr. C wasn't the only reason to attend the class. Some of the students were hilarious characters themselves. Aside from Day-Day and other niggas with attitude, there were the overzealous nerds like Michelle and then the flirty girls always trying to slide in some innuendo.
Everyone seemed to have an opinion about this one, and unlike most of our debates it seemed to be cut right down the middle. Half of the class felt it was unethical while the other half felt it was ethically fine. While everyone chimed, I sat and observed.
I had a hard time picking a side because each argument was convincing to me. Them cats actually had names for the male teachers that were sleeping with the students. I forget the name, what were they? Jarvis smiled, "My point is, education included sex with teachers. It was their way of life. And no one blinked an eye to it, even the cats like Socrates and Plato, and the other dudes who were creating the principles of ethics.
If the creators of ethics had no issue with it, why should we? It's all relative and it works on a sliding scale. We only think a teacher messing with a student nowadays is wrong because of a broken moral compass". They didn't create ethics. You can't create ethics, only attempt to label the terms. Secondly, what makes you say the compass is broken? Maybe the Greek way of ethics was antiquated.
It's why a female having sex with her male teacher makes the man a monster but a dude having sex with the female teacher makes the dude the man.
You tell me what's outdated". The students clapped when Jarvis was finished. He was obviously a smart guy, but what we loved most about him was his humor and how he could have us crying from laughter. He was so arrogant and brash, but it was that heartless arrogance along with his quick wit and deep intelligence that we all loved.
I mean, who cares about the opinion of some rapper who wears pink and says no homo? Is it unethical for Camron to move his family instead of telling the police? It's the natural order of life.
Survival of the fittest. Two different choices, but is a lot more convenient than the other" he responded, chuckling. And that is the type of debater Jarvis was.
We'd end up going in circles because of his ability to keep pulling up analogies and forcing us to reword, rephrase, or reinterpret a situation. I believe Mr. Carter both loved and hated him for it. Everyone seemed to always find a way to hop in the debates, but I mostly remained silent. I wasn't use to participating in group discussions or debates. My class room sessions were one on one with my tutor. This class was a free for all, royal rumble.
I didn't even know the man knew my name until one day as I was leaving class he gave me a suggestion. I'd love to hear your thoughts on these subjects" he said. I was startled to hear him speak my name and tell me to participate more.
And surprisingly, my heart had dropped when I heard my name roll off his tongue. I didn't know how really to respond to him, so I nodded my head and walked out of the classroom. As with most classes, a few students stayed behind and chatted with him, Michelle being one of them.
I was hungry and was going to the dining hall to get something when I heard a voice from the side of me. Really funny and really true a lot of the times" I said as we walked. I try. Why come you don't be speaking up? I'd think you had a wealth of info to share" he said. If you could be in college at 16, you must be smart as hell". A lot of guys, well and the girls, are talking about you.
You got fans I will say that". You are a pretty girl, smart, and got a nice shape. The hos is jealous and the niggas wanna hit. It is what it is" he laughed. I turned around in shock at how bold and rude that was. I didn't even know how to respond to such a thing.
Just initiate convo and then diss me like that? What an asshole. I think you are gorgeous. It's just not physically possible for me to want you" he said. I didn't quite understand where he was going, so I didn't say anything, just grabbed a plate and kept walking down the line.
Still, he had my attention and I was waiting for him to clarify. I nearly dropped my plate when he said this. I did a double take to see if he was serious. Even though he was grinning, his words seemed to still be full of honesty, not jokes. Damn, I had never noticed or even thought about him being ghay. It's not a secret or anything. Just figured your ghaydar would have went off by now. But I will chalk that up to the home schooling" he laughed.
We got our food and made our way to an empty table, he seemed head-bent on us keeping up this conversation. But I didn't mind the company, especially after the realization that the dude was a homosexual. I didn't know any real life ones.
So I was kind of taken back by you saying that" I said. I want to hear your opinion. C did say for us to be strong in our convictions. So what you say? Are ghays the devil? I picked at my food and tried to find the right words for him, so he wouldn't be offended. He seemed like a cool guy, why would I alienate myself from him by talking against his sexuality? But I wasn't around my daddy anymore. I didn't have to regurgitate what I had been spoon fed as a church girl. I've just never really met someone that was like that".
I'm just messing with you. I know a lot of people feel some way about it. Hell, my dad is a pastor". He laughed, "well you see where I'm coming from then. Always hard for a church kid to come out of that shell and be something other than what their parents want". He took a sip of his Sprite and made the face that people make when the soda first hits them. I took a sip of soda as well. Worst than rape, murder, stealing and all that. Let a black dude boast about killing someone and he is immortalized, like tupac and them.
Let a black man talk about loving other black men and he is the devil himself. I'll be in hell with the other sinners" he said, more jokingly than his words would have suggested. I understand he was going for sarcasm, but I felt the piercing pain in what he was saying.
I decided that I wasn't going to be that person. Jarvis and I ate lunch and was joined shortly by Michelle. We all talked about how much we were feeling Carters class and then we talked about what we had wrote for our first essay. Michelle wrote that him being a former drug dealer wouldn't hurt his credibility, while Jarvis wrote that it did hurt his credibility. I was with Michelle on the subject, but I found myself waffling in my opinion after hearing Jarvis speak his mind.
One thing I loved about him on just my first time really talking to him was he was very passionate and blunt. He said what he had to say and made no apologies for it, regardless of how aggressive or politically incorrect it was.
But he did it with such flare that it usually would provoke laughter instead of any ill feelings. Even when he spoke out against Christianity, I found myself as a Christian laughing at what he had to say instead of being defensive. Jarvis was that guy. As we sat and talked, I realized that as much as I liked hanging with Michelle, Jarvis was on a different level. He would be someone I'd want to hang out with on the Set and just listen to him talk.
That is eventually what happened in the coming weeks. He and I went to the movies, studied together, and I even came to his dorm a few times. The no guy rule was much stricter in my building, but it wasn't no thing for the boys to help sneak girls into their dorms.
What made me so comfortable was I knew Jarvis didn't want me in anyway, other than someone to joke and shoot the shit with. The only male I had ever been around consistently was my daddy, and he was a stark opposite of him, maybe that it why I was so drawn into him.
We became friends quick, him the loud mouth, opinionated, arrogant, conceited, male and me the shy, soft spoken, laid back, gal. Although opposites, we clicked. Lyndell had been pressing me about calling him more often and I was really getting to the point where I was going to break up with him. He was needy and starting to get really jealous and possessive, always accusing me of cheating on him with some college guy.
While I had been thinking of breaking things off with him officially, I wasn't cheating. I was spending too much time doing school work and hanging with Michelle and Jarvis to be cheating with any guys. Word got around quick that the fresh meat in Diamond Hall was only I still got the stares from the guys, but not nearly as many of them were stepping to me.
To celebrate the halfway point in the semester, Jarvis and I went out to Chubbs, where once again the bouncer let me in. That club was as hood as you could get, and that was probably why I liked it so much. The loud outfits, the loud booty shaking music, the loud smells and loud people. This was why I had come to this school. To be close to my people. And in the club, Jarvis was my bodyguard. He allowed me to dance with whomever I pleased, but his presence there made it to where no guys were going to take advantage of me.
They would look out for you like a lil sister. Female friends were cool and everything, but many times they were more concerned about getting theirs than making sure you weren't getting taken advantage of. When I first went to the club with Michelle, she pretty much did all the watching while I did all the dancing.
I had to make her come to the dance floor to dance with me because she was taking it all in like she was a reporter instead of a college girl having fun. It kind of became a burden making sure she was having fun. Not with Jarvis though. He'd booty dance and grind on me for one song, laughing and cutting up the entire time, and making fun of people in my ear on the next song, keeping me laughing the entire time. He was fun to be around. I appreciated how he could make things fun.
It was why after the club, when he invited me back to his dorm, I accepted. It was around 1, I had missed calls from Lyndell and my daddy, but I wasn't ready to turn in and call it a night. He wasn't either, as he pulled out some beers and sat on his bed when we came in. I'd never taken a drink before in my entire life.
But something in me told me that I was going to drink my first beer that night. Where the hell you learn how to shake your ass like that? Not in them pews" he grinned. We learned a lil something something from them Ciara videos. But I should be asking where did YOU learn how to shake yours". He cracked open one beer and handed it to me. I took it instinctively, before my mind even wrapped itself around the concept. Older sisters.
They taught me a thing or two" he said before cracking open his beer. He immediately took some down, making the same face he had made when taking down a Sprite. I looked down at the can in my hand. The smell was already coming out and it wasn't very pleasant. I hoped this shit didn't taste disgusting. Closest to alcohol I ever had was when my grandma would put some in her chicken" I said. He lifted up his hands, motioning for me to be his guest, and i looked back down at the can. I slowly brought the can to my mouth, slowly tilting it so the beer could touch my lips.
I tried to anticipate a taste. I tried to prepare for the worst as I started drinking down what filled my mouth, still not yet tasting anything. When I dropped the can, swallowed, and assessed, the taste hit me. So this was beer? I frowned my face and started laughing. I walked over to his bed and sat down. I frowned my face up when thinking about it. He laughed some more and finished off his beer, tossing the can in the trashcan on the side of his bed and then laying back on his bed.
I wasn't even halfway done with mine, only taking small sips, but I decided to take a big gulp so the damn thing could hurry up and empty out. He laughed at my attempt to finish it off. But I know your ass is a virgin to sex too. It's so obvious". I got ho radar. I got a good ghaydar too. Trust me, let me hang around anyone for five minutes and I'll tell you if they are ghay or a ho" he said.
I judge the shit out of people. And just know that I know you ain't no ho. You one of those prudes though" he shot back. He ignored my question, reached in his mini fridge and pulled out two more beers, smiling as he handed me one.
I took it, cracked it, and put it to my lips, still looking at him. No one ain't know for sure. She had the biggest crush on me for a few years so I let her ass take me to prom" he grinned before turning serious. I think that is when I really knew. I was ghay. Not straight. Not bi. But ghay. She was one of the finest girls in the school. But naked in front of me. And I had to think about 50 Cent for my dick to get hard". But that body is something serious. I was thinking bout them bullet wounds in his chest when I was rubbing on hers" he said.
I can't even imagine. How you know you would like sex with a guy though if you've never done it? Sexuality aint based on experience, you feel me? Sister stations. Call sign meaning.
