He knows how to handle ~the ball(s)~.
And we don’t know how to handle those abs.
He’s into personal hygiene and that kind of stuff.
Which means he probably never has morning breath.
He’s really good at multi-tasking.
And is a modern-day philosopher in the making.
I’d get lost with you, AR.
He’s into sending secret messages.
With his big, strong hands.
He’s definitely a family guy.
Like the good Italian boy he is.
And a gentleman.
Chivalry is not dead.
