Mickey isn’t sure about avocados, but Gloria eats them all the time so she learns how to embrace the strange texture. “I can’t believe you’ve never had avocado before?!” Gloria screeches, slathering half on a piece of rye toast. “It was hard to get good produce in the town where I grew up…” was Mickey’s excuse. “Where did you grow up?” Gloria bit down and closed her eyes. “You wouldn’t know it… Small town. Up north past Thunder Bay.” Mickey watches Gloria a lot. Ever since she moved in to Gloria’s two bedroom first floor apartment, she tries to find reasons to look away but struggles. Gloria is curvy, with long black hair and big brown eyes and she’s gorgeous, the most gorgeous woman that Mickey has ever seen.
