The next day he drank a bunch of coffee and sh-- into his mom's colander and had to get the bags out of his sh--, rinse it out and put the colander back in the drawer -- stuff like that. We also talk about the time my lady put saline solution in my tits, 250 CC's in each one, in Jamaica, and gave me breasts. I had big tits, I was walking down the beach.
