Hey tiny babies,

As I'm sure you are aware because your mom has texted you to drive safely, it's raining outside. As such, I suspect my show tonight will be extra cozy. So BYOHCBAF (bring your own hot chocolate, blanket, and fireplace). Also I think I have an intern so I'm going to blame them for anything that goes wrong.
