Ssalefish GSO First Look #97 for 2.13.19
OK, enough of the day spent thinking about buying guitars that used to belong to members of Green Day or customizing guitars. I have a guitar-and-store related project in the works that should be ready to show off early next week anyway.
I should be talking about Jay, who turns 40 next Thursday, when I will be far too preoccupied making last minute preparations for Valentine’s Day and anticipating The Umbrella Academy debuting on Netflix the next day.
The time stamp on the picture says it was taken at 9:35 PM on June 19th, 2014, almost five years ago, but I definitely remember going to Jay’s 30th birthday party, obviously now 10 years ago, and it’s safe to say that we’ve been friends for almost 12 years. I often think about how when I’m 40, in 2024, Carly and I will have been together for over half of our lives, but this summer I’ll be 35, so Jay and I have been friends for over 1/3 of my life, and that ain’t too bad either. That picture sums us up well, too, cause we were away for the Charlotte Mini Con, so we were selling comics together, we got those toys at the now defunct Retro Reboot on our first trip there, so adventurous for us, and we’re enabling each other to have fun and indulge our ideas and childhoods.
Jay will be off work next Thursday for the big day, and he says he doesn’t like people making a big fuss over him, so if you wanna get your 40 licks in, you’d best stop in on Wednesday!
