Everybody needs encouragement sometimes. A friend used to bring me a soda when he bought one for himself. I miss the soda but kind words could replace it. It’s like when people tell ya your kid is charming, but you never see it. Just a pill and a crank. I’ve failed as a friend and a father; but I always shared a diet pepsi, liquid or spoken. Be kind to me Jack Emmett, yankee doodle, cakey, pooger, squigs, grits and newburgh, I once gave you my best.
