What's happening? Come on at this point. I have a battle I must train for, I have a world title, what are you folks doing?

Like I was going around one time and I was like 'I will kill you!' and the children were shouting and they were going to call the police since they thought I planned to kill my children. To me it wasn't so much that insane, that is the way we mess about, however I didn't never say anything. At long last, I said hello, these folks or whoever's up there, I would rather not be discourteous however come on at this point. It seems like they're hauling something across the floor throughout the evening. In the event that you want assistance, let me know!
