We live in a world where things come first and people come second. Every once in a while we get things right and put back in order, and do things the right way.

Kid Shit

Miss Rataaaaajczak, somebody peed on the carpet! Miss Ratajczak, how do you spell a... A what? A... like a dog, or a cat. A? ...you spell it... 'a'. That's it. That's it? That's it, I swear.
