This week’s question: How hard is life, man?

This week’s quote: “Where ever you are, just head the opposite direction you’re going, and you’ll be A-OK.”

My good buddy John Hastings and I sat in Melbourne’s premiere “colonnade” cafe and talked about many of life’s difficulties: over-caffeination, weird crowds, mourning, and poop. Bonus shout out to our cute waitress! (But not the fake-smiley one.)
