"In my teens, I worked at a grocery store with a woman about 10 years older than me. She’d get my friend and I high after work and tell scandalous, delicious stories of sex and drugs, laced with revolutionary diatribes that blew my mind. She was super tiny and always stood when others sat or found that highest spot in the place so she was just a little bit above you. And, she deserved that spot. She wrote me a list of books to read. Makes Me Wanna Holler was one of them."
