Thai pork salad

Thai pork salad

I opened one eye and closed it. I opened the other eye and closed that one as well. I then pretended to sleep but my brain had somehow woken up and was processing all the things I was supposed to get done. It was 5.40 AM and I didn’t really feel like getting out of … Continue reading
