Did It Feel Like Thanksgiving For You Today, Foxhole?

so i hope the foxhole is having a great thanksgiving today.
i know some of you are waiting to eat right now.
others have eaten so much they are waiting for their second wind.

but i noticed something tho…

Left, Right, The Side, Down The Middle, or The Back Door

the path either goes:

whatever you choose will either get you to your destination:

faster
slower
back to where you started

not at all

it just takes one decision to change your life forever.
it’s valentine’s day and i have a lot of shit on my mind.
not on some “i need love” shit.
i’m good.
something else…
