My favorite story of all time is:
Once upon a time, a goose drank wine, a monkey chewed tobacco on a streetcar line. The line broke, the monkey got choked, and they all went to heaven in a little row boat.

In bed I like to read:
Celebrity trivia, Netflix reviews, and oh, great literature too

Besides SMITH, I read stories at:
