Super funny and quick to read. It’s nice to be a champion. I want to know where he works, where he sleeps, his favorite swearwords used to coat around his soft nature. This scumbag gets a job in gov’t service, complains that the bosses make him, like, actually work geez, don’t they know he’s hung over, they’re harshing his mellow!
