Oppo PSA:  Indian food is good for your soul

Especially on a cold winter’s night. And especially from a place that. Does. Not. Fuck. Around. When you ask for it spicy.

So that was a fun evening...

I’ve been inside for the last two days, hanging out with my son - the weather was crap, and my wife worked all weekend.
