Free to Be...and Free to Write...in Chicago!

stoneybrook and I kept facebooking with each other even when he was in New York. I kept telling him to see his old girlfriend because she always texted him while I was around. Last time we'd hung out we'd hooked up and I'd told him my dilemma. I told him that I wanted a roommate, and said that we could split the rent for 550 a month if he'd come live with me.
