Re: Complete Randomness

So I need a second to slightly nerd out, and pat myself on the back haha. Backstory: I now live in Nashville (and love it!) I work in an upscale Wine/Beer/Liquor store, and also a bar on the weekends. The liquor laws haven't really changed since prohibition and were crazy! We weren't allowed to sell...

Quick Wednesday poem! Hump Day Some say it’s crass, some say it’s lewd, But I don’t see hump day as rude. Like all the rest, it’s just a day, Hump day is just a phrase we say. It adds some spice to this mid-week day, And lets us know Friday’s on its way. So join me now for a Wednesday cheer, Hooray!...
