Between this, I try and fit in time to middle and bet AND still have a somewhat normal life. It seems the days of hitting the liquor store and getting some bum to buy us some 40's (only thing the stores in that area really carried) and sitting around talking shit with Tecmo on the tube. Happy with my life, but it seems shit was a lot simpler back than.....
