  • 09/04 Tue → "the reason why babies smell so good is so we don't kill them" thanks, Eric, for your coworker's insight • purposefully provoking Brosk, as in, "is this *really* a good PoGO event for stardust?" and he loses it in the most delightful, satisfactory way • showed off pictures of my sunflowers to other volunteers • Ma's grilled cheese, and taking a photo of it would do no justice • Bro got pulled over because he didn't have his lights on, welp, but got by with just a warning
