HE AND HIS WIFE DROP GEMS


he and his wife love each other,

but they’re not in love any more, you know?

Always think he drops gems.

It was a blessing but now it’s giving busted head.

I want the cashiers to have jobs so I use them.

thank you oestrogen

every time a woman breathes

I become so much more confident!

Oh, what university did to me

that’s crazy man. unreal

Well, now I have a wife.
