“My dad bought this mask in the olden days before I was alive from a Chinese man with one eyeball who painted it. When I was little I would run past it at night because it looked alive in the dark. Now I like it so much, I even think it will scare bad guys away.”

“When I was younger I would spend hours playing with my collection of toy Breyer Horses, but when I grew up they all somehow got lost.
