So, I was talking to sherlynn and she was like when’s Marilee leaving and I was like, opposite climate time (BC I remember you mentioning this- not exactly sure when that would be.) then SL mentioned you selling off all your things and I was like – the air mattress’ mine and shared your wedding dress story. Then I told her last time we talked you were getting estimates and she was like you mean like what nwafor can do. And I was dumbstruck.
