Die Young

This past winter homie and his (then) fiance took a little trip to India/(and Southeast Asia?). I believe they went there to pick me up a bag of Lays India's Magic Masala chips, but they also did other non chip related activities. Since they don't live near me it took a minute to get the bag into my possession..but finally last month I got em in my grubby little hands.
