*important side note: Gesso ate Evan's Thesis. As in, he ate the leather bound book representing 2 years of Evan's life. I told Evan to just write a new one...but he wasn't in the mood. That is all.*
Peanut butter and chocolate? Yes please!
I grew up being a big fan of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. They were my favorite. I always hoped they'd contact me for some sort of sponsorship. Long story short, they never did.
Anyway, now that I'm an adult, my taste buds want a little more than Reese's can offer.
And I am very (very, very) pleased with how things turned out. Plus, as an added bonus, I'll now be able to sponsor myself. Reese's can eat my shorts.
