Kenny’s Top Five Everyday Essentials

  1. Phone. I use it every day.
  2. Comb. Just a comb because I’ve got hair everywhere. So, I need that. I can’t be looking all rough.
  3. Petroleum jelly. I have to keep some petroleum jelly, some Vaseline somewhere for either my lips or my hands. I can’t be ashy
  4. Mask. With the way the times are these days, I need a mask. I have this bandanna, so I can either use it to cover my face or I can wear it around my head.
  5. Water. No matter what’s going on, I have to stay hydrated.
