Looks great! Ever go skinny dipping up
No, although I did bring a date up here

Remember when I
was over and you sent him
out to wash his windshield with the

of ADD. His mind is constantly racing,
he just doesn't think of the obvious.
He said he hasn't

See what I mean.
Jacque sits down.
His Mother admitted to sending him to a
doctor as a child because
he used to slam
his head down on the floor.
They didn't know what to do.
How did they get him to stop?
The doctor said he was looking for
attention, so just throw a pillow on the
floor and let him bang away.
That gives new meaning
to head banging.
It worked. Anyways, how did the

He's taking mine in.
It's been acting up
lately and the last time I went, they

Remember the other day
when I wasn't
Yeah...didn't you give up a job that day?
I went to the doctor, the same
one I go to all the time. I check in,
and the nurse proceeds to inform me, they
will no longer treat me unless I have an
injury below the waste.
A what? That's weird.
Yeah so I say the pain reaches all the
way down, so I get a room, see my doctor
and he prescribes horse back riding to
cure my illness.
Horse back riding to cure what illness?
It could have been stress related. So
instead of a horse I'm

sitting at a table, drinking.
Are you really gonna ride this thing?
I have to.

with Joleen. Some restaurant. I know,
I'll be there to pick her up. I still
have thirty minutes before I need to
leave. Okay, love you too. Bye.
Joleen walks back up.
I'm telling you, life would be so much
more simpler if girls could just
out and pee.
much more simpler, ha? Time for you
to ride the bull girl.
They get up and
walk over to the mechanical bull with drinks
in their hands.
Are you sure you want to do this? There
