    I didn’t know the mouse was actually your roommate! I can’t believe you had me trying to kill it. Shame on your Miss Coco…

    Congrats on two years! You know Coco, if you move to SF, the amount of time you spend on public transportation will probably be about the same, but the Number of times seeing a bum s**t himself may increase by a bit ;) On the bright side, as long as you do not live in the haight-ashbury area, the Approximate number of months that hippies would take up residence in front of your flat would probably be 0. Love you!
