You probably failed the course due to your spelling, grammar, and punctuation. You might have to look all those up. And that's before we even try to work out just what you have been smoking.

That is what you took from this article Ginette Marie? Trust that she looked much younger and prettier out and about posting to facebook on Halloween the night before. Until she accidentally hit and killed her own friend. Im sure you wouldn't look so hot either at 5 am hung over and traumatized. Maybe have a sympathetic ear, something productive or informative to comment or don't even both posting.

HAHAHAHAHA!! Sympathy for two drunks being complete morons and one ending up dead? I'll tell you something informative...DON'T DRIVE WASTED AND YOU'LL AVOID KILLING YOUR FRIENDS! How's that, Kayla? Dear god, I can't even believe you went there. I suppose you're this dummy's friend. Have fun visiting her in prison and your other friend in the cemetery.
