something I want to say for transparency - regarding my relationship with a popular fedi user and a service i provided for that user

honestly goofy as heck that this vape pen has a timer to show how long you've held down the fire button

but it clears immediately when you let go

making it useless to see exactly how big of a hit you just did lol
