When Taco Bell Calls, You Answer

A phone call at 1 a.m. isn’t something I’d normally pick up, even from a good friend or a semi-close relative. Once my head hits the pillow and I plug my phone into the wall charger that never quite stretches far enough, I’m done. Goodbye, world. See ya in six hours.
