Aswell, Taylor.jpg

Growing up, I never really had too many complicated punishments whenever I acted wrong or did something I shouldn’t have. Sure, there were the occasional times I would have to get out of the car — you know you have done something bad if you make the people responsible for you angry enough to punish you before the car has even stopped — and walk the side of Interstate-20 or Louisiana Highway 144 and pick the switch I was going to be spanked with.
