We feel nostalgia for the same thing, we remember the same commercials. She makes me laugh and cheers me up. She is my best friend, my love, my companion, and really I don’t want to think about life without her. ” The singer StingW of one of the articles in the newspaper Gordon Sting admits that she is engaged in such energetic love with Trudy that her head flies to the side.
