good show

found a new use for duct tape
was in my old work clothes doing some painting
it was cool outside and there was a slight breeze
there was a hole in my old jeans in an sensitive area of
my jeans
was too busy to change so i reached into my tool bag
pulled out my grey duct tape
tore off a strip and covered up the hole
that felt better
however the duct tape sticky side was inside
didnt feel good so had to put another strip inside
to make things more comfortable

my son he saw the duct tape and said you have duct tape
on your  ---------- on your jeans
told him things got cold and had to cover up
wonder if it will wash off

ok things start back up tonight
celtics are you ready
shacks back but may be too late
lakers cant lose another
they are in disarray
rose is back in sync again
thunder need to continue on
