                                               ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

                        And on the same day, the mafia-chick bulldozed

                        into our lives. I couldn’t know that that cheap-

                       looking bitch in the white chariot was going to

                       mean the end of my life. Diabolically paradoxical,

                       how one single set of 24 hours can contain both so

                       much love and beauty, and so much ugliness

                       and evil.
