Meet Reggie and his best friend Steven. These two guys could both be considered mans best friend. Steven is the kind of guy that you can just chill with and talk for hours about the most random things, but above all, he will always tell it to you straight. It’s always an entertaining time and I’m happy to call him my friend. Thanks Steven! – Cyndal L
