    I’d ban meat if I could; but with that said – I love eating meat. If y’all ever need a butcher or dishwasher I could work for food. I like being out of sight though since I have depression so it’s tough being friendly in appearance even though I smile enough on the inside. I prefer up to four hours as I get drained easily but I could pull a few full day shifts maybe. I reside in Dwntwn St. Paul and I take the train. Call/text option: 6513418444
