    My pops is coming to town from New Mexico, and we’re looking for something besides the fucking zoo to do with the kids. We have the mother of all wiener dog races down in Buddha, Texas, but thank ghod we’re not there anymore. I would love to take pop and the girls to see this, and at the Gypsy!? What a blast!
