It’s Friday night. I’m in a cold sweat and a murder class is going on right now. With Butters by my side, of course.

The mailman’s on his way, but I really should have done this instead.

I promise you – it’s not as hard as it looks. It’s quite the opposite, actually.

Look at this pool of butter and this crispy bread. If that’s not a salesman, then I don’t know what is.

I don’t care what it is. I’m cancelling the mailmen. It’s shrimp scampi night for sure.
