"When the keg has been kicked, when the liquor has run dry, when we've fallen outta love with that 'perfect' guy. When the party is over. When we're passed out on the floor. When we can't keep kickin ass in Beer Pong anymore. When the ciggys are gone. When there's no weed in the place. When our mascara is running all over our face. When we've fallen down. When the world has turned cold and we're sitting in our rockers gettin' old. We'll still be friends cause we'll all know the deal. We're each other's girls and we'll always keep it real."

By the way, thank you so much to all of you who have donated in response to my post yesterday. I'd like to particuarly thank the folks who used Amazon honors, because while I can email individual thank-yous to the people who used paypal, Amazon honors is anonymous unless you opt to send me your email address. So, thank you for all your generosity, it is greatly appreciated, but really, thank you all for liking In Passing enough to want to support it.

Ok, done now, really.
