You are not worth losing my job.”
when you hop into a nice car and think it’s the greatest thing since sliced bread. You inspect everything, observe the driver operating the pedals, shifter, and steering wheel, just appreciate the feeling of sinking in your seat every time they punch it, smell the aromas of…
I was actually feeling something like this the other night. I need to take a moment one of these days and really take Lola in. I haven’t done that in a while.
