    My favorite parts are “did not vomit” and “I can afford exactly none a month”. You’re doing great! Man, you bought a house and put furniture in it. That’s enough for one year isn’t it?

    I was going to see if you wanted to exchange #26’s, because I did your #26 a couple of weeks ago, but I actually like my #26 and have been looking forward to it, so you’re on your own, kid.
