    Text - Saeed Jones @theferocity I met Little Richard at the Nashville Airport when I was a college student. He gave me his personal phone number and offered to make me his pool boy. I told him I had a full scholarship and was good. My friends and I would call the number when we were drunk then quickly hang up.

After breaking my arm, the doctor recommended taking marrow from my femur and transplanting it to my arm. @ecgeering 1d After the surgery, my parents noticed a circle shape of cuts in my back... 139 4 Em Gem + 2/2 Apparently, the doctor got lazy, and instead of tying my gown, he stapled my back to keep it in place. He apparently did this with all his patients. @ecgeering 1d We sued.
