One of us sings and one of us drinks and one of us say nothing at all

I am all three at the same time.

Every once in a while, I will get this insane craving for cup noodles. I am usually quite good at not succumbing and letting it go away, but after a long day of trial and long evening of prepping cross ex, I am not about to torture myself some more.

Hello, Completely unhealthy and insanely late dinner. I am so sure I will regret you 2 hours from now.
