  1. One time when I was six years old, I was eating my sandwich, and then, I shat myself, thinking it was only a fart. When I got up, there was a massive brown stain all over my pants and bed. I really wish my uncle didn’t put laxatives in my sandwich. Luckily, my bed sheets were brown, so the stain blended in, and no one noticed that it was me. They smelled my poop and blamed the dog. This happened a week later, only this time, I shat myself in the kitchen after eating a whole bottle of vitamin C gummies. My bowels exploded and excretion left my butt like a waterfall. I pushed the dog in the kitchen, ran upstairs, and told my parents that the dog did it, and that’s the story of how my golden retriever Benji was put down

      1. No worries grandma. Love you so much. I’ll pop round to visit next Thursday, and when I get there, you better spread em for me. Im ready to explode inside you. That tight pussy is mine xxxxxx


        P.S. If you could, please get your feet nice and dirty and sweaty – perhaps walk around the house barefoot so your soles get nice and dusty, then put on some socks and don’t take them off for a week. I love the musty smell of your feet and I will clean off all the dust with my tongue. OMG gran I am so hard just thinking about you, I might just bust a nut right now.

        1. Dearest Jay,

          I am literally squirting everywhere thinking about it. FaceTime me so I can see your nice creamy load!! xxxx

          Love, your horny sexy gran


          PS – I might crush some chocolate with my feet and feed you with it if you are lucky!! With dirty soles aswell!!! xxxxxxxxxxx
