She you know actually when I told her about that she's like I never got my nipple pierced in front of eighth grade boyfriend. That's right. You got your boob your whole boob tattoo in front of my 9th grade boyfriend trying to protect your identity. Trying to couch things. Hide people a little bit. I did still call her my mom. So that couldn't help. Hot mess but it's appropriate for your mom. It's fun. Really fun but at 16 she said you were 12 or something. I'm not cut out to be a mom right now. You have to go live with your dad. Yes. She did tell me you know I think so I don't know how to be a mom any more that might have been while she was hiding under the bed of my 13th birthday party while the ban was being arrested because we had a keg.

Will autopsy different mom? Will you be more conservative with him. Yes. I think I'll be a different type of mom but L what I did love about my mom was that she was so open and it allowed me to be the type of crazy person that can get away with writing the things that I write. What about your crazy husband. Now when I was, after I finished Reading your book I went back with my mind to some of the tweet that Jason sent like Malaysian airline couple hours after this they think shot down in the Ukraine he sends out time to cancel who wants my frequent flier miles from Malaysian and then he kind of was, I read the book I said maybe that was you. Did you pick up his phone and send that? I don't know if that was him. Were you chatting. Are you good influence on him or. Terrible influence. Terrible. Because you know he'll say something to me and I laugh because I'm sick and twisted then he's like that sounds good. You are his filter. Terrible I get him in a lot of trouble. Is he trying to keep up with you in that sense. Yes I'm funnier than him. He's trying to kind with you. Yes you can do this and get away witness. Yes I can get away. Women on 20th intergeneral can get away with far more than men can. I just think it sounds different coming from a many would. You are hysterical. But I'm stuck on this.

You have very tenacious tried again you tried again with another hooker. Because once my ego was bruised I'm like no I'll make this happen. Chelsea sent the regular person so were you like person so were you like okay no. No then I was hell bent on finding the perfect hooker so I went to Vegas. The city of hookers and find somebody.
