(For anyone that got this far in the description, why yes, I did say "Dei" instead of "Day" at the very beginning. I also show off why I'm such a goof by asking "Well did you at least own that closet?" Now I'm thinking of a THOUSAND better jokes, but you win some you lose some. If no one has told you this today, I love you and we'll make it through this.)
