I have told this story millions of times. I have written in approximately thirty times.
I condensed those thirty pages into one piece. And then I edited and revised the shit out of it, because that’s what it takes to be a real writer. (That’s what the professionals tell me, anyway. A lot of the time I think JRR Tolkien just sat down and spat out 1000 pages of LOTR and never had to change a word)
Then I submitted it to Untucked Magazine. They decided it was worthy of publication. Which means I am forever indebted to them for allowing me to swear terribly at a place that isn’t my blog.
Please take some time out of your very busy days and head over to Untucked (click the word, sillies!) to read how I became the foxy person I am today. Hint: It involves no foxes.
Though there is a lot of swearing, so if you have a delicate sensibility (why are you reading my blog, of all things?), you may want to have a Catholic priest standing by for a confession afterwards.
I’m just looking out for your souls. You know, like I do.

I enjoyed it and definitely felt the emotions behind it – nice work 🙂
Heading over now, Whit. I expect to need three holy shits at least. 🙂
Yup. Three, at least. Great revelation, Whitney. Wow.
Thanks, friend! Your comments again made my day. 🙂
I read the other blog, brilliant!
Why aren’t you writing a book, Whitney? You should.
I am writing a book! It’s a novelized version!
Fantastic stuff! And kudos for the Ryan Reynolds pic 🙂
Not entirely sure how I got here, but I dig it. And I, too, lost it to someone 15 years my senior, which in hind sight was the only way to do it. Happy to see a fellow “whitty” chick on here!
Hey, thanks, friend! Also, love the site name. I want a brownie now.
Hey Whit, I love the way you write! I thoroughly enjoy people who completely real, especially when it comes to blogging. I’m new to Word Press, but your blog was the first one I came across in the Humor section, thankfully. (The other blogs were a tad dry until I got to yours haha). Im not a bitch but.. you’re cool AF. It would mean a lot for you to check out my first post and see what you think!
Keep writing! Keeps me entertained in my college lectures.

Great story, I loved it. “meeting of the birthday suits” is a fantastic phrase! Thank you for the post.
Thank you for reading!
