  • Turner Collins

I wasn’t naive as to why I’d ended up where I was. I knew the lifestyle I had chosen could land me here. I was aware that my choices, my mistakes, they all had consequences. I knew all this and somehow I had still believed that the group of people I had chosen to dedicate my life to would protect me from this fate.

I was wrong. So very wrong.

The small 6 x 8 cell that had been my home for the last six months was my price to pay for those mistakes.

I discovered a word today that I’ve never heard before and I just wanted to share it with you guys. I got a laugh trying to pronounce it, The word is…

milquetoast

noun, a very timid, unassertive, spineless person, especially one who is easily dominated or intimidated.

I will have to work this into one of my pieces one day.

Have you heard of this word before?

-Collins
