I understand

Look Mr. Dean .. I'm sorry

I really am sorry

I spread the investments

as wide as I could

Just the unfortunate state

of the economy we all behind

I tried that already

I mean I said it myself

Right, because you can't

say the word date.

What did you call it again?

I asked her if she wants to

meet up for a gathering

- Gathering? What is she, a wizard?

- I don't know why I said that

Did she carry a wand

next to her purse?

- It just came out

- That's rough

with her forever

Life about choices man, one bad one

can ruin every good one you ever made

You had to read that somewhere

No, I don't read

A different person that I don't like

Where was I?

You were talking about having

pizza on new years eve

Right. So anyway 3 minutes passes

the ball drop facing new years

and behold 10 minutes later

there's a knock on the door

and it's the point of the

story finally showing up

Good one. Another good one from Jerry.

Just you got a word count today Jerry

So you got to get at a

certain level and so it is.

It's a pizza guy and I said you better

not be charging me for this man.

thing last year
