Do you know? I gotta go one daughter, a definite one. Normal baby moments were either citizens light, but then you like your marriage material. So basically I'm here Let me say to my walk out: the Berlin might be a woman there and we start talking and they start off I have to say right now. I guess I'm just in the motor light, like man, I'm a joint basis, Allow me now like go out, I'm going out with Ladys, and indeed many of you know as days evolve as happy as it happens, but but as far as you know, I definitely made a decision after watch out only I'm only having a baby. If I'm married that at that point, as you know, the baby Maoist situation, I believe you slip down
NL slip. Ups, man, you got a grown man, I think you know. Even if there are no one, I have rhinos liver digit. Had your mom ever met, one of young women that you a dating and wanted you to get married and am definitely my mother has been nose like there's your mercy, she want the best. For me, a sweeping marriage is the best which you know, and I was good for me. Do you know I do was right grander, I'm a person's. They are rather beyond assembly line at that point. Yet then, a believes body on and its saint talking. I got this do get married because that's what use pose a dual become my mother say I want to give maize thy now manner you gotta be son, is real sacred for real out. Its iraqi Erika is renewed. Mom. Really land carried my guest of inquiry. I guess
you carry for my mother, love, a mother, loved garage and sheep and funny enough cigar coups arena like even more after we broke up with another made it out, and I now we ve got everything I was so it would not. You know at the end of the day, at the while I was kind of like menace alike, a guy losses to her? You know in the light of day I got love for Serena, so I want to see how successful so she talking to somebody older and getting some advice, or they just kicking it's all good, but it was funny that they Who, after they won my enemies, number forwarding echo laughter enemies, arena really loves. You may want to keep it at some ways: amounts needed a connection.
Your words back labour and go back you'll go about nothing about already. Why? Why would you go back? I mean it's light once experience their person not feel I may as well. I sometimes live moves on I can't I never work go back, but most of the tacit like Serena and Erika was though the most serious relationships ahead as adults and after it is one of those days. While I may, I scattered I got to move forward and to worry with it. I was real love involving women out about it. I will marry, you know they're. So, at the end of the day it is like. Well, you know how I got the explosive beat it s. What I feel is supposed to be there we dispose.
Be friends, so I just keep him move by. How did you on developed a degree relational, my annual, when we was on Arusha peace? To do that as alarm? You know what I did is does benefit were her actually before I did a benefit amateur, which our houses, meet with a cut at the scene or maybe Shane? Knowing me that well and then she just wanted to get to know me before I did the benefit.

You ain't got to act, a fool with them and, like I think, the community, we don't have to act, the fool, the police could be acting a fool and it will honestly if it will be some That is where we may lose some people to police violence, but
I believe we losing you, know more people, but are all has, and I, like ignorance in a way we do know acted towards each other but is this latter love brought. We feel that we hate.
