FEEEEEEL THE TESTOSTERONE (Ladies, you have testosterone too, and I know you’re feeling it right now).

Let’s be honest with ourselves. All of us at one point of our lives have had the desire to kick down a door. Whether it was when our little brother locked himself inside our room and messed around with your stuff, or when we where saving a helpless cat from a fire…its a basic human instinct to want to kick down doors (but don’t qoute me on that).

Being frank, its been a long time since I’ve felt like as much of a man as I did last week.

Thanks for reading, and we’ll talk next week 🙂
