That's just how she is and he knows that she'll never change. Aunt Mimi expects John to do well in school but he'd much rather be drawing or doodling. Her call to responsibility doesn't regi ...

"John Lennon on vihainen ja nuori. Vuosia myöhemmin läski Jared Leto päätyi ampumaan hänet, mutta se onkin sitten jo toinen tarina."
