A Few Words from Maggie:
"I've known Haley since I became a member of the Hell's Kitchen Community Garden about fifteen years ago, but we weren't really that close until she broke up with What's-His-Face and moved back to Hell's Kitchen. Now she's my BFF—although she hates that expression. I guess we are a little old to use it.
I've been trying to encourage her to expand her wardrobe. She'd look a lot younger if she didn't wear black all the time, but she's pretty stuck in her ways.
