dent ina book
you can indent the cocksucker
not sure, precisingly, but the
previous owner of this book wouldn’t say boo to a goose
did you take something?
              [this is called a dent in the book]
are you just typing for one person?
kind of
i get the whole niche art thingbut i’m afraid that you’re like only writing for yourself and you keep out-bidding people on guns.com the whole house is full of them and that new laugh you have, jesus christ it is scaring everyone your mom mentioned it to me too i don’t think we’re at the point of an intervention but there is no way i’m moving to florida with you where we have no family if you’re slowly going insane i’m just being honest it’s not like i want it this way but i have to be real, so anyway do you still want to watch love is blind later on netflix and can you pick up wine on your way home?
