I was just pulling out of driveway (a severe angle up to the road), and I burned the clutch a bit to keep from stalling out in reverse. Balthazar says, “Daddy, I smell chicken nuggets.” So a burning clutch smells like a chicken nugget, or perhaps it’s more apt to say that chicken nuggets smell… Continue reading Balthazar Comments on Commodity Foods
When first presented with the idea of a java log, one may summon visions of bad dietary intake resulting in compacted bowels and inevitably, the java log.
