(not so) #SexySnippets where Maisie has to decide her future

Hello again. It's the day for those seven sentences. #SexySnippets. As mine aren't usually very sexy, I tend to put (not so) 😉 After all, I don't want annoy to feel short changed.

So here's this week's sentences (unedited word vomit from Maisie's Story)
