There’s a pretty good amount of fun events coming up this week, so I decided to include two for every day because we like options don’t we? Like, today I had the option to not purchase a $5.00 box of “NY style strip steaks” from Family Dollar, but I did it anyways because it contained three whole steaks! Anyway, now stomach hurts a little bit and I’m hoping that I won’t die. I’ll have all of the weekend events up soon, take it easy.
