I like doing good but she's such a pain in the a$$. Bad on the other 
hand is always there to be done as often as I like and she never expects 
anything in return. It takes time and understanding to do good. A 
quickie is more than suffecient for doing bad.

Anyway, I'll start doing good like you said..bad sure is going to miss me.
