    What is worst is people will generally use the unscientific method of seeing if you are a lying when, in fact, you are telling the truth.

      I am a pretty good liar since everybody see me as a serious person, so every once in a while i can always tell my friends there is homework and they fall for it every time 😂👌

          So having adhd and chronic pain/fatigue makes you impossible to read. Ill be such a good spy lol. All those things he talked about I do because of those three things, nothing at all with emotional stuff.

                              The different way of holding flower reminds me of the movie "Inglorious Bastards" where one agent gave away his cover by ordering 3 beers using 3 wrong fingers (index, middle, ring) while the correct way of ordering in Germany (as per the movie) was to use thumb, index and middle finger.

Or in the military, etc. But by all means no one would wear, what they have to wear, what is available. Or do without basic needs, dentures. Teeth, etc. Hair care. I literally cried, when I got my Paul mitchel again. After yrs of being forced to live with suave hair care. You cannot possibly imagine the abuses. Or buy a make model of a vehicle you would want to buy? That is laughable in this extremely abusive, state.
