I would read off every single word of the name every time someone asked me about it like I’m out here reciting my bougie bitch Starbucks order because I want you to know it’s the [parsh]. I’d drink out of a [parsh] water bottle and wear nothing but one of seven [parsh] shirts I would also own. I would wake up Read more

It was a fine parade, but when does the race actually start?
