How to Pass the Time While You're Waiting for the Train: Ginger Spotting

How to Pass the Time While You're Waiting for the Train: Ginger Spotting
Y’all know what mullet hunting is, and y’all know how much waiting for the train sucks.

She begs to differ, as someone recently told her they would want to be with her if they were biking at night because she is so pale.
