An Essay On Living In Florence, Oregon

1008 words - 5 pages

I was working at Taco Bell at the time, and these guys came in and ordered 100 tacos, 100 soft tacos, and 100 bean burritos. It was cool. We were really busy, and the guys gave everyone who was working 100 bucks. My mom was working at this really fancy hotel called Driftwood Shores, and that is where all the movie people stayed.
