    1. Um. Yeah. Even though I am from Tucson I am not a fan- ha. Apparently I do not know as many hip hop songs as I thought. Maybe I would have read and enjoyed more than 2 'chapters' had I recognized the songs or at least more than like 7/100. While I am randomly on a life lessons kick, I learned that I happily I favor reading life lessons from hospice patients versus rappers. :)
