Sometimes she made me mad but then that is the point I loved her dad and her brother Cal they were both so good for her Her best friend Zoey was a bit hit and miss but again it proves how imperfect humans are and how we are all just muddling along as best we canThere we some parts I didn’t like – fat sham

He starts off talking about how you just start out crying and then it goes downhill from there as we imagine all the worst things possible to make us cry even harder I’m not advocating Dane Cook’s standup I’m m
