This One Time, I Fell In Love With an Illegal Immigrant. Yes, That Actually Happened.

In: Life,

By the end of the night, it was as if I had just had the best sex of my life, without so much as having shared a kiss.

I knew nothing about him, except that I needed more.

And more I got.

Candlelit dinners, walks through parks, sensual kisses on street corners, and giggly phone calls lasting well into the night came, and came some more.

    Of course, I have loved an illegal immigrant and been best friends with one for three years.
