I do not like Jared. Sometimes I think I would like to take him and make him eat big foot long subs with everything on them until he balooned up to about 400 pounds, and then make him walk around wearing a shirt that says "I'm a Big Fat Fattie." I know this is not a good thing to feel, but those commercials REALLY get on my nerves.
Glad you're doing better. Sounds like a scary situation, and kidney stone pain can only make it about a million times worse. But yea, take that alcohol advice and post it in the "worst advice I've ever gotten" thread.
