PLACES I HAVE LIVED SINCE TURNING 18 AND HOW MUCH MY MOTHER APPROVED OR NOT
10 being she couldn't approve more if I was the Virgin Mary; 0 being I am going to hell for it.
- •South Bend, Indiana. Hard not to approve since she went to Notre Dame. 8.
- •St Andrews, Scotland. Year one: getting my master's degree in English and being fancy. 7.
- •St Andrews, Scotland. Year two: living in sin with socialist arch-liberal atheist intellectual German boyfriend and working retail with said master's degree. 2.
- •Berlin, Germany. May or may not be being indoctrinated by German boyfriend and socialist arch-liberal atheist intellectual parents; assumed sleeping in separate beds because 'adults' present. 3.
- •Schaumburg, Illinois. Back home after breakup. Oh, how the mighty have fallen! 9.
- •New York, NY. They don't even have alleys for their trash! 5.
