Chelsea Fairless’s 9th grade English notebook.

I wonder what the guy in front of me is thinking. He has a white baseball hat on backwards so I can see the front, which has a white bulldog with bloody teeth on it. My guess is that he likes to drink beer, watch football, and dream about fucking little bulimic Wet Seal bitches. But what do I know? He could secretly be dating a dude. Maybe he writes poetry and volunteers at an animal shelter or some shit. I should know that appearances can be deceiving. But I think my initial assumption is correct.
