    dude. you’re amazing. and I don’t just mean that thing you do with your feet over your head. i mean the way you live your life with balls (you have serious presence for someone who is only like four feet tall) and the way you can look at someone with a deadpan face, and say something that is both true and hysterical at the same time. you’re quite the mighty force of peace.
