I live with my family — brother, my sister, my mom and my dad. They’re dirty, they’re messy, and they yell a lot.

My roommate’s actually really cool. He poops with the door open, though...that’s the only thing. He does everything on the toilet. He’s got an issue with it...I don’t know. He’ll be doing something and then he’ll just go sit down on the toilet. He’ll start reading or talking on the phone or whatever. I walk by the door every morning, and he says good morning to me, and I just know he’s on the toilet.

Well, my dad is quite the Okie. He’s always going around saying all the Okie sayings, like, “You can put lipstick on a pig, but it’s still a pig.” And my stepmom, she’s a total clean-freak. If anyone but her is doing the chores, then she goes crazy.

They never let me sleep. They’re always picking me up and holding me. I can’t get my rest! And they’re always feeding me. It drives me crazy. They’re always making these silly faces at me, and they make funny noises with their voices.... I don’t understand what they’re saying!
