Today, I’m feelin’ old and broken, like a Lincoln Log house that got kicked over by the snotty, next-door-neighbor kid, who I never really liked, but my parents made me be nice to him, and eventually, I got the last laugh when I read that he went to jail for breaking and entering, probably trying to steal some shit to pawn and pay for his drug habit. Yeah. I’m feeling THAT old today, and my knuckles and knees are aching, too. Better go take some ibuprofen.
