The Breakfast Club (Stumbling Blocks)

Welcome to The Breakfast Club! We’re a disorganized group of rebel lefties who hang out and chat if and when we’re not too hungover we’ve been bailed out we’re not too exhausted from last night’s (CENSORED) the caffeine kicks in.

If we are ever running late, it’s PhilJD’s fault.
