The double nickel birthday is like no other – 5 repeated. Nickel has the atomic number of 28, fitting to follow Viking’s 27th birthday Q Tuesday. We had a run of 4 birthday Qs in a row at the Gladiator – Moonshine last Thursday and Viking’s BBD sandwich – Saturday and Tuesday (his birthday was Monday).
Viking had also tweeted out an article about us finding our identity in Christ – we need to know who we are. We are loved, we love each other and show that by coming out in the gloom and doing hard things together.
Quick warm up SSHs, Hill Billys and Squats.
The double nickel:
