dogwood / bev cooks

FRRRRRRRRRRoodyoodyoody! I’ve come to know something about myself lately. And I can’t decide if it’s attitude or age or the general handout of life drama. You tell me.

FRRRRRRRRRRRoobydooby. Day? Day. What are those little things that expand in your mouth and cut through your gums at the dentist when you’re getting x-rays?

rug and plant and shoes / bev cooks

FFFFFFFerder. Want to know what I love most about a court trial? THE SKETCHES. Who made that up, you think? It’s not because cameras aren’t allowed because we’ve all binged true crime documentaries like unhinged nutcases. Listen, you can’t have a legit trial without a solid courtroom sketch artist.
