 A semi thundered by, breaking wind like a fat man. Shorty Winsome hunched his shoulders before he slid sideways between two enormous eucalyptus trunks, down into the bark-and-trash-filled gully, all kinds of crap getting into his shoes.

  15. AHHHHH! Instagram! I will definitely have to check in on Instagram from time to time with my 56 posts. That's just such a fun way to share!
