'Tis but a comedy at this point. How did they let Not Rachel continue to live on in the newest of years, 2020?

A musical barrage of eclecticism created by anything but the tastes equivalent to 20/20 (vision). 

Not Rachel, will you return? Well. Who can say?

Oh Lord, they let him back!

*Please note at point of being Oscar, Not Rachel was not yet an artist

Is it still breakfast in the eve? 

What makes breakfast? 

Oscar makes some form of attempt to take the helm of the mighty breakfast vessel, as Tess and Rachel take a well deserved break. Doing his best to wave both the joy and threat of Christmas and its music, he produces some form of show akin to the hand formed gift of a child given upon the day of Christmas itself. 

If you would like to hear said show, well, luckily for you, you are in the right place. Go ahead give that play button a hit.
