I remember when I took this photo. It was 2006 and I was a server at the Golden Corral - just a jaunty little kid who went up behind a friend of his, reached his arm around her with a phone sticking out from his bony little hand and a couple awkward button presses later, here was this photo.

That kid, he had so much promise, so many opportunities. And now he’s a tired little man hunched over a keyboard, pounding out his many regrets. And soon he’ll be asleep, the lid closed on his tiny little world. And no one will care.

I miss those times. I would give anything to do it over again.
