This only happened two or three times, but he was dubbed the smuggler. My mom's theory was that he was just a drunk. I that a walked into summits, house thinking, was zone and lay down in bed only. We woke up with someone screaming and this year- maybe one time maybe, but but I kind of doubt that it was that innocent. We do too I think he did end up getting caught, but I couldn't find very much information about him, although, while I was looking him up, I found out was about another more recent case of a man and sterling whose snuck into women's houses to touch them in the middle of the night? Definitely creepy and he didn't get a hilarious nickname, but he was caught only a few months ago April. Twenty nineteen does It isn't, even though I laughed about it for a long time.

Traction workroom, Buffalo New York, simply not all at once. He seen it all yeah. He has more than enough hometown stories to go around, certainly wasn't healthy for us to hear all of them, starting as literal toddlers at least. We always learn to quote check our exits and to carry a pocket knife and then princes you never know when you're gonna have cheesecake now she's a dad jokes for life. Yes, dad. I will never forget the moment. I learned to look both ways when they cross the street. He showed me what happens when you don't using a horrific image from his anti training book. Oh no add dead, so are I was quite a party or back in his teenage years in a late seventies, hasn't totally eased up. Yet this is a story. Wearily think his check. Your exits catchphrase came from long before he became a fire fighter. Who is that, Us Party with some friends when to do they didn't know, showed up the guys harassing the girls, and so my dad and his buddies kicked the guys out. Little did they know the guy's hit out in the staircase at the apartment house,
the party ones down, and everyone goes to sleep at some point. My dad is in the bathroom when he smells and sees smoke coming under the front door and were hurt Sayer up, at least on the third floor of the house. He tries to get at the tiny window in the bathroom, but to no avail. He then it's out of the bathroom and rouses the rest of his friends they are in the living room, which has a large window him in his buddies, bust out the window and tell everyone the need to jump out the fire, the only staircase of the house so shit. There was no getting out the girls go first and I think one of the main broken her leg in the jump. All the people at the party jumped out safely, or so they fought My dad thought everyone else about the party, but one guy it actually fallen asleep in the stairwell, did not wake up in time and die in the fire. So sad turns out the guys who had been kicked out, we're so mad about it that they set the fire and retaliation. Then it says what the fuck And a new party, you fucking, evil losers. I agree
It's hard to imagine how this trauma piled on the many other traumas. My dad has experienced still working on that hey. Maybe you should talk with a therapist angle, but Luckily, I start by getting a subscription to psychology today, yeah, it's a good hint and they'll start to lend some shit say sexy in always carry a pocket knife or those unexpected cheesecake moments.

Please stop me if this was you and I talking to each other every I'm so scared right now one, but it was the thing of if something happens and you're in a space like say or even go to see a show and they are banned, is playing and something happens. Everyone will run toward the place. They came in front of us not not me when I'm fuckin learning some yeah going on this. I am repeating it sorry to whoever said this me, but basically in I feel was Cara Clank or someone like that, but basically that everyone will remember where they came in from and go that way. If you find the other exit and go the way, people aren't going so you don't get trampled or like caught in a the people right, yeah, good, to know who said that to me, I bet it was care clank achievement and gave her a full grown up, but I've been listening, so many projects like we added I'm having that thing like my friends, that's like nuts is higher for we do it too.
