"I flipped the little wire to pop the bottle open and held it next to my nose. Then I cried. I let all my tears fill it up, back and forth between my eyes. One tear at a time, I was able to catch enough to come to the very top. I patted the rhinestone stopper into place and wrapped the pink glass in toilet paper. This is how I would keep the worst day of my life with me--in a tiny, secret bottle." - Delaney Robinson, "Don't Shoot Your Mule"
