Making Bread

unfortunately feeding birds is SO spot on rpl and steven like rpl just getting SO into it, meticulously tearing up bits of bread and making sure none of the ducks get elbowed out by more aggressive ducks…steven following him with a ziplock full of fresh bread like “hone–i mean holy father. please. these ducks are so fat they can barely walk you’ve fed them enough for today” and rpl like “you KNOW they don’t let rpl jr. eat unless im physically here steven, you know this” 

with all that said, let’s get a good night’s sleep tonight so we can wake up at real business hrs tomorrow and hustle, make that bread, be on that grind, roll nickles, etc.
