Today I was feeling emotional. . . for whatever reason. I told Charlie that I really needed to go and cry somewhere for a couple of days. . This was his tender response:
"Can you wait until I'm done with my finals?!"
Boy oh boy, this has been a fun week. A random day. . . Here's how our Thursday went. . I'll give you the run-down:
