Saturdeeeeee Saturdeeeeee the best deeeee of the weeeeek. E’erbody sing along!
^Too much? I’ll back off.
This week flew right by like a batch of rabid bats. The older I get, the quicker time zooms past my mind’s eye…you feel the same way? Remember when you were 7 on the playground, and you thought to yourself, “man, I can’t wait until I’m 12?” Yeah, I literally never have those thoughts anymore on the playground. These days, my playground thoughts are more like, “I wish I could put the space-time continuum in an Olympic-sized swimming pool of molten clay to slow it the f/stop down.” But then I remember the space-time continuum probably wouldn’t fit inside of an Olympic-sized swimming pool, because I’m no scientist, but I think it’s safe to assume the STC is uuuge. We’d need at least 7 OSSPs, and who knows where we could get those? Anyone? Anyone? Bueller?
You guys, I saw that movie Deepwater Horizon this week. With Marky Mark. I cried like a super upset squirrel creature. If you’re looking for an action movie that makes your heart-soul feel things, I recommend. Plus: Marky Mark. <- I always recommend.
