Commonwealth’s Top Plays of the 70s and 80s

    How about the Commonwealth’s top track jackets of the 70s and 80s? Fran Curci is definitely wearing one of them.

    Friday night, alone in mom’s basement so I wrote this ^^^^^ because I got no life and no date, ever. It was either post that or masturbate. I am done, grabbing my lotion …… I am wearing mom’s underwear.
