    1. I find it ridiculous too , having to mention self explanatory things but on the other hand i am amazed by how many people dont do that as a default mindset. Btw i will read the article just for the kicks of it

  1. I get no kick from champagne…
    Mere alcohol doesn’t thrill me at all
    So tell me, why should it be true…
    That I get a kick out of you…

    aahhh…. what a fantastic song!!!!

    But I get a kick out of you’r kicks!
