Sure the beach didn't have a parking space and the zombies where driving in my bike Lane. Cucking Zombies.
Maybe It's the next three to four days of rain. So Cal the sunshine state. No N95 just go to www.Trump. com and buy a (make America great again) bandana and you are good to go. Plus trump says it's washable so you can share it.
