You know those days when you’ve got the mean reds…the blues are because you’re getting fat or maybe its been raining too long. You’re sad, that’s all. But the mean reds are horrible. You’re afraid and you sweat like hell, but you don’t know what you are afraid of. Except something bad is going to happen, only you don’t know what it is.
