"I swear, I was just coming to meet this underaged girl on the beach to tell her about the dangers of the internet. Kind of like a mentor."

I just had the Bartles and James with me so I could let her get drunk and sick, and realize she didn't ever want to drink like that again...

Well, I'm thinking I'm going to get some kind of award. That guy just asked me to have a seat over there and wait while they prepared for me.

You should hang around the house for a few minutes and enjoy your glass of lemonade before you head home. Looks like there is some type of skirmish going on the in front yard anyways. No need to go out and get messed up with that.

The real problem is your self-esteem, PVee. There is hope for you though, because I know plenty of annoying, belligerent, ugly, stupid, untalented, trollish people with no style who have plenty of friends. Go get 'em, cowboy. lol

You forgot the adjectives lazy, alcoholic, short tempered, employed, heterosexual, bored, careless, nerf herder.

This crazy number crunching cowboy likes the number one today, as in one pretty lady for a lost cause. Damn, I just can't stop giving.
