G30 Phlegm: Sharing is Caring

G30 Phlegm: Sharing is Caring

January 31, 2017

The Geek:30 group is sick.

Now, I'm not going to point any fingers, Alex...

But I'm pretty sure it wasn't Finn like you keep suggesting.

Anyways:

Slight hiatus (One week) It's all Alex's fault for being the carrier. (We know it was you) Please send beer!

...

What do you mean "Alcohol negates the antibiotics"!?

We're gonna die.

Thanks, Alex.
