Nobody can beat me. I am always the last one. Coming to terms that I won´t have many views, let alone comments if I don´t have more discipline, but I guess, I can´t squeeze my brain anymore. At least bots like my slices hahaha. https://elintervencionista.wordpress.com/2020/03/20/day-20-bird-talk-sol2020-challenge-solsc/
