Barrett Jones: I lost a Club Kid-Chat friend. And I can't figure out who un-friended me.

Wooton Bassett: Are you still doing Club Kid-Chat?
Barrett Jones: Yeah. I posted an update this morning saying that I felt kinda down.

Barrett Jones: Four. One suggesting a self-help book, one asking who I was, one telling me to meditate more and one saying that I could earn $80,000 a year working from home!

Barrett Jones: I get it, but I don't get why.
Wooton Bassett: Well, it's Mailman Spirit Week. Today is Dress Like Your Favorite Vegetable Day. I really struggled between mashed potatoes and stuffed tomatoes. But surprisingly a tomato is actually a fruit. Go figure. Wonder what it would be like in a pie.
Amber: Gravity is boring? That's like saying oxygen is a luxury item!
