@hirika do you need help with that? let’s figure it out over chat or something later. Am out.

@kennethgyu Maybe there can be some screening or exam, like a driver’s license. An “I have a clue” license.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to kennethgyu

@hirika I see. Here’s to hoping he gets well soon. :) give my regards to your family!

It didn’t come in a box, and can’t be bought in a store, but the most fantastic and awesome Christmas gift managed to find its way to me.
