School Story:

Other than forgetting my third point in my student body election campaign speech in front of the student body, I would say it was the “C-Wing fight” with Ronny Stanger. As best as I can remember, I was being stupid to him and he didn’t like it much. Unknown to me he was an award winning Golden Glove boxer and decided he had had enough. Within seconds I was in unfamiliar physical condition. However, as strong and macho as I was, I embraced him and contained his artful shredding of my face. I then picked him up high enough to stuff him into the red donut lid garage can butt first upon which he ceased his fury. As Ronny was trying to get out of the garbage can the next class bell rang. Fortunately, he was accustomed to going to his corner with the sound of the bell. To this day I have not messed with Ronny Stanger, and recommend you don't either!

Give me another five or ten years and I’ll open up with the real good ones.
