    i couldn’t imagine a more pleasant bowl of orange circles. i think the red glow mixed nicely with the conversation. But even still, it was one of those times where you just knew Chase would approach with his usual pitiful entrance, and before long we’d all be listening as by a dying campfire, to a story going nowhere, and with an empty bowl.…[Read more]

    once again. a cleaner type of trash and a premonition to the fact that i was well on my way to becoming an environmentally sound drunk. “that’s okay by me,” i told bobby.
