First of all, I am moved. I got so many emails, Facebook messages, and comments, and you all were saying the same thing. It’s okay, I’m okay, and I am loved. I love you guys so much. I can’t tell you how much it means to me when one of you threatens to kill my parents on my behalf, or wishes you could have scooped the 8 year old me up and taken me home with you.
For the record, I have to remind you that it is illegal for you to kill anyone, even if you have a good reason. Also, no, I will not tell you where my mother currently lives. She lives with one of my brothers, and it wouldn’t be fair for him to have to deal with all the paperwork involved with a dead body being in the house. Trust me, I know exactly how big a pain in the ass that is.
Also, if you had kidnapped the 8 year old me, I probably would have kicked you in the nuts. Because I was 8 and strangers are fucking scary. But thanks for the thought, it’s very sweet!
