Kinda failed on blog challenge (if the headliner isn’t enough of a hint) but what the hell, I’m gonna finish this to the end.
So, today’s prompt: what do people thank me for.
You know, this should be pretty cut-and-dry, I feel like I should be ready to bounce off a detailed piece from this…but it’s really hard, y’all.

I won’t say much about the whole thing since it was kind of a private matter, but he was having a rough night and hadn’t been feeling any uplifting vibes from anyone lately.
