She’s 18. She’s feisty. She’s the unfit-fitter.
So I'm not really a fan of writing things down. Because actually - when you think about it - you can sort of get away with stupid when you say stupid but when you write stupid it seems somehow more stupid. And things get misunderstood. All the time. Text messaging - bollocks. I mean, I once sent a text message to a boy which said - I'm not going to go into that - but it went all around and ended up everyone thinking I had that thing where you've got a dick and a vagina. Actually, I don't quite know how that happened.
But words are proof I guess. Of something.
And I fucking hate proof. I quite like it in other people but not in me. I'd rather that nothing was proofable - provable - yeah. That.
But anyway, Luton. My essay on Luton. My bit on Luton. My piece. Because I'm not going to go write much but they said I should write something and because they said it somehow I've ended up doing it.
Luton is cold, warm, and hot, it's greasy, clean and shitty, it's male, female, and both. It's black, asian and white.
Fuck you if you want to put us in a catergory.
End of bit. Suck my piece.
(which is what I said to that boy, and he said it meant I had a piece which was a fucking nightmare - yeah yeah yeah).”
