Anonymous asked: Did your dad really do those things?
Yeah, that’s entirely true. He also often times brought home turtles he found in the road, which is a sweet idea because they won’t get run over, but sometimes they were snapping turtles and I thought they were cute and that’s the story of how I lost half a finger. Okay, not an entire half, but a good chunk. When I was fifteen my best friend bought me a terrapin turtle and I was all hellll, no, but I had to house the damn thing now. They’re also supposed to live for like 3 weeks but Sheldon lived for two years and I loved him to pieces and cried and had a funeral in a teeny tiny shoe box for him when he died.
