  • “So basically everything that I like I just throw on top of fries” can’t get and explain it more simpler than that. I miss being a cook at the movie theater, we had real chefs and I was a backup and man when I was high on break and was in that kitchen I made fries with anything on it thought I could open up a shop like him lol.
