i know it seems a little self-indulgent to post a picture if myself on forty ounce friday's, but you know what? today i ended a 8 year chapter with my employer and now am embarking on a new chapter in life. to say the least i am gonna drink one for myself to celebrate the effort i am putting forth to keep food in my kids belly's and that medical they be needin just in case. so to prove society wrong. a true scumbag still putting in work, to keep that economy afloat. i guess you can't judge a book by it's cover.
