    If she ever leaves her boyfriend, I would love to share dirt and everything else we have in Arizona. I love the smell of dirt and have been dying to have some real dirt to eat. I do not have Pica, I am just drawn to the minerals, smells and everything else Mother Earth has to offer! I also eat Sushi, Mussels, Crab, Lobster and anything else that I crave. She has a very nice smile and what she loves is real. Everyone else is fake, go with the flow retards! This girl is great!
