  • I was 18 years old and living on the couch at my grandparents in Corona. I would take the bus to the mall in Rivercide for something to do, and I found there was this really cute blonde who took the bus back to Corona at this certain time. After a few bus rides I finally asked her out, but she had a boyfriend.

    A few days later I received a letter from Jodie in Kansas City, saying that she had bought a van and was going to drive it to California, and did I want to join her. I ended up losing my virginity, getting married, and knocking her up in the next few weeks. And my life began.

    If only that girl on the bus hadn’t had a boyfriend. I obviously needed to get laid.
