  • I know you

    I know you. I’ve been in the deep, dark with you, I remember because you stayed at the entrance of the cave even though it was your idea to come explore in the first place. I know you. I’ve heard you brag. I’ve seen you get offended and be wrong and get offended again. I […]

  • S.O.P.
