Just Turned 16: The Waif's In The Kitchen With His Girlfriend And He's In Love And her hair is still wet from the shower while she does her toenails, and nail polish is his favorite smell because of his foot thing.

The lady who read Mr. McMilligan's Mountain never wore shoes, and she'd wave a foot.
