Hyperbole


When the shit hit the fan and everything blew up in her face, Laura took it like a man.
She drank the bars dry, fucked everything that moved, then went home to Mother.

  So we're giving Trifextra some hyperbole this weekend.

    1. Rife - that does seem to be what hyperbole needs. And I admit, I like face smacking (on paper, on paper). Thank you so much, Suzanne!
