Milkshakes from the cosmos! Or something like that. That's what I wanted my small business to be like. But this putrid fucking recession! Quit smoking. 43 days. You're goddam right I'm proud--not just anyone, that's for sure! Yeah my kid's joining the army. Can't stop him. I bought him season's tickets to the Donut Holes his whole damn life. Sure they ain't no Kan-zass Cit-tee Roy-als, but they play some sure as shit baseball, that's all I know. He hit that girl last summer, and things ain't been working out for him ever since. Yeah, sure I told him to cool his temper, but I did buy him all those mixed martial arts classes when he was an ajolessent. Guess I am partly to blame there. But holy shit--I forgot to tell yeh! Got the Monte Carlo back--woo! That's right, impound called me this morning, cut the boot and all! 43 Days, shoot! No whiskey, neither.

Damn, I know it. He'll be alright over there in Iranistan. You ain't got to tell me. 43 days aint shit.

Reading this again, still has the same punch. I'd love to applaud it twice.

Definite feel for the type of person he/she is and their denial.
