    I did not get to this till 9am Wednesday, but let's put it this way. I was having a shit day dealing with ahole users fighting with me and then the coffee shop mixed up my order so I am caffeine less as well. (All first world problems I know.) But this immediately brought me out of my funk and made me smile and cry… but I'm at work. So I sent it to my wife, now she can cry too.
