    walls and dogs

    seriously though, braking has kinda come with time in my chair, and its amazing how fast you can stop yourself when you're about to take a ride down a flight of stairs.
    hand sanitizer and individual hand wipes, if not those, i'll make a mess w/ soap and water

    i love that standalone player
