Me and Barry were bunkmates at McCrossen’s Ranch For Troubled Teens. He always bragged about all the tail he’s chased. I had no interest until Barry described the new girl, Candy.
“Cherry lips,” he said.
“Bubble gum tongue.”
I wanted to meet her.
So one night I asked Barry to arrange for Candy to meet me behind the horse barn after ‘lights out’.
We met, but things turned real bad, real fast. I leaned in for a taste and next thing I know, Candy’s screaming and gargling blood.
Bubble gum tongue? Barry’s such a liar. Tasted like copper and raw meat to me.
