88: “She’s like a hobbit”

The ceremony was beautiful. Priscilla had to hold her own bouquet and Bernie’s at the same time for most of it. Bernie’s bouquet was so large and so heavy that Priscilla’s arms started to shake part way through the vows.

Priscilla was merely minding her own business, having a lovely, fun time at Joey and Iggy’s joint birthday party when she had her good mood dashed to pieces by the sight of Jacklyn and Joey kissing in the bathroom. For one thing, Priscilla really needed to pee. For another, it was something she wasn’t supposed […]

39: “Youths”

The morning after Halloween, Priscilla woke up with an aggressive headache. She hadn’t been truly hungover in a long time, but she was definitely very hungover that morning. From her bed, she could see her blonde Olsen twin wig sitting on her dresser where she’d flung it the previous night. Her overalls were on the […]
