ABOUT THIS EPISODE

Col interviews Troy about being a father of girls who takes them on big adventures. Col and Troy also discuss having a boy after years of having only girls, and wrap it up with an intense game of Would You Rather. We teased Troy's encounter with the law in last week's episode, so keep listening to the very end to hear the whole story.

Welcome back to another episode ofaccidental parenting, Pod gast this week, if you've been listening, we'vebeen following a trend. Couple of weeks ago we had an open outoption, an opienopen, an open, open adumption. Yes, thank you story, followed by aninterview with an attorney, an adoption attorney and this week we have thatattorney's husband, this is troy, say hi, troy, hello. Everyone you've got agreat pod casting voice. I have no idea, I can hear it right now and I'm tellingyou you've got a great voice for this. Before the look you may bomb theinterview, but your voice is Great. Well, hopefully other people enjoy justlisten to my voice. Yet maybe you can put hem to sleep H, there's, probablyno, not a house that they coal do it's funny. This is maybe a little bitinformation that we haven't shared with people in the past, but usually when weinterview people for the Potgast, we send out a list of any view questions. We want them to pr to think about someof the things that they're going to say and- and I wouldn't call it scripted,but you know they have an idea of what's coming and when I told Troy thatI was going to send him the intervew questions he refused yeah. I have noidea what's going to be happening, he said no, I don't want any questions. Iwant this to be spur of the moment spontaneous. In fact he said I want. Iwant you remember saying this. You said I want to be able to look you in theeyes like we need to be sitting and just focusing on each other, lookingeach other in the eyes. Well, I took it so seriously. I haven't even listenedto any of the podcast as far so I am really thanktared thanks a lot. Youknow I D, I like a lot, though so I've got a great story of how I met Troy M,but before I do that we like to start these interviews with an awkwardpersonal question. You ready sure- and since you haven't listened to any previous podcast, I'mgoing to ask the same question that I asked previously in what order? Do youwash yourself in the shower and what or did I watch myself Rom the shower soand this is kid friendly by the way, O okay. So I interesting enough, I always start topdown. I start with my head waterfall affact, waterfall effact, I startd Ishamped n my hair and then I shave, I'm Shavein the Shaishep in the shower yeah,so Yo not shave in the SH. I have a beard, Soo, don't shape it all rightnow i Bush my teeth in the shower. I do that too. It's so just feeling in thewor I brush. I so that's true! I brush my teeth. Why the water's getting warmso I'm in there I I brush my to eat. Then I wash my hair, then I shave andthen I use a Lufa and I'm a big fan of the Lua and then I have at it. You knowsome people go washcloth, yeah, that's so much laundry! I know Yulike Casy,I'm not reusing washcloths. Tifuses, the WASHBA really and I fold them ondish 's a new one every day, everyday allright. So continuing with theawkward personal question that one really wasn't that awkward. UnlessYou'ere envisioting me not wearing clothes, then that could be thiar in. IT IRIN, I'm actually looking around the...

...room for something there's a prop thatI want to use in a later story, and I can't quite plase that the turtle- Itis not the turtle that Y and it's it's a fake turtle. That's not real iell Obe a UM. You do the laundry. How often do youwash your your bathe in your shower towl, so tif usually washes and I foldokay, O that's, usually how we work it out. Um, we wash our towels once a weekonce a week yeah that's about what we do. If, if I didn't have so much kidlaundry to do I', do it every couple of days Eah? But you know I mean I knowpeople that will only use it once and then they'll wash it. They don't use ittil twice, I'm out yore clean getting out of the shower. It lasts a couple YDath, I mean yeah once a after a week. You need to change it now. Speaking oflaundry, I I try to stay caught up on laundry. I work from home so makes itreally nice. If I have a fifteen thirty minute break in between calls, I can goswitcher. Do a load of laundry Al quick, it's kind of awesome, so it doesn'tleave all this laundry to the weekend, like a lot of parents have to do. Butthis morning I woke up and walked upstairs, and I saw there were some loads of la or some piles of laundry inmy kids room. So I picked him up and threw him in the Wash Gon unwashed gotem folded had them put them back in their drawers, and I helped with someof the littles but theirs in their jaws and, as I walked back downstairs, I sawone of their dirty clothes hamper was like artyfull of laundry. I I had just finished all of theirlaundry and Theyhad refilled it in like a matter of hours. So it sounds likeyou just needed to fold to clothe again, because there's no way they were dirtyo they were. Oh, this was a pil of clothes that was in the bathroom. Oh H,I didn't check the bathroom. That's unfortunate, rookie mistake, sorryabout that yeah all right! So Um, some things about troy and I know quite abit about you before I do. A full introduction want to talkabout one of the first times that we met. So I mentioned earlier that I waslooking for a prop in the room and I found it troy. Can you describe whatI'm holding in my hands right now? It looks like a little black book thatmaybe Col had before he was married of all of the girlfriend that I might haveand H. maybe he keeps it round. He ses needs a special, it's Orisiness, it's abusiness carkaso when ovry and I were first married. We'd start we'd getbusiness cards and I'm like what do you do bt with business cards? This is liketwo thousand and four and I decided to buy a little business card book. LittlePort Forli. Actually did have one of those h. The first one here is in athree three room. Pinder though this is, this is a little small yeah. I I don'thave many cards in here. The first one in here is a gay name Jodi. He was ournext door, neighbor a guy named Jodie, oh yeah, Jodi, Joe J, O e d y Jerslin,Yeah Nice Guy, our next door, neighbor in the first Conda that we an in he wasa retired guy he's his his position is quote: UNQUEretired had to be a veous card, yeah or...

...e Antet with spensers appliances,Spencer's appliances. I've got something for Arizona, state,university, Um, there's a mortgage company, camelback, volkwagon housecleaning, and here it is Troy Hill Land Project Manager. It actually has atitle on it: Pulty homes, Dell, Web Communitis, okay Y H, this business car there's alot of history behind this business card. So the first time that I'm ettroy, maybe it Wasn' the first time we met,but the first time we actually spoke and got to know each other was at mysister's wedding. Yes, in two thousand and five: Wasn't it cams ndeceptionCourtney's reception, it was a year after Auri and I had been married court.He was married a year laterand we catted. We had a good time. I rememberthinking. Oh He's pretty cool and tiffany was always a good, a goodfriend. You know growing up. She was. She was a good cousin, not quitefriends, yet we we grew into that as as w we'll tell him this story and as Troylaught, he slipped me his business card. Sokay call me sometime. Let's hang outin this business card, I kid you not sat in the like the side console of mydoor for my car for about two years and you and I don't think we spoke onceno. We did tanother se until we had kids and I'm sure it. If and I had thediscussion of like thosjerks like really gave Hem a business car, I guessapparently weren't that interesting 'cause I didn't want to uh to continue.Th O funny. Is that the Omerse two thousand and four its like? Oh Yeah,here's my Businesscard, call me d. Who would do that today, y yeah back then? I think I had ablackberry, so it wasn't. I mean you just no one texted like we tet to thatCRRC is oh here, I'll text you, my number, get to give you a call requet.This is very different yeah and then we just lived in different cities and just didn't happen, but now a couple ofyears later am on oe, born and now, a few yearsafter that lots of kids between us we've got eight kids. Toand canstoalhas a lot and we still have no idea. What we're doing is parents good andbetter every day here, a little bit better its hit and miss. I have mymoments. None of them are in prison. Yet so that's good! That's well,hopefully they're all too young Doi the prison. It's true all right, so I'mgoingto make some 'cause. I know you pretty! Well, I don't know everythingabout you, I'm going to make some assumptions about you, and I want youto tell me if I'm right or if I'm wrong and I might sprinkle in some truths. I think you grew up in Long Beach,California, that is incorrect. Where you grew up inCalifornia, I did it's a little town by Fresno called Hanford CaliforniaHandford Yeah. It is uh, it has the largest available male population,single male population in all California, because of how many prisonsthere are there, and so we heard it right here. Ladies There's, a lotthere's a lot of a lot of available men...

...in the Central Valley. Okay, veryinteresting, all right. Your first job in high school was a poolboy. Hecleaned bulls. I also did not do that. No, I worked at a cabinet shop. Okayand I built cabinets. Okay for commercial schools and stuff, like that,your top sports in high school were tennis and Waterpulo Waterpolo. I didnot play tennis in high school yeah. It was water Pol and swimming okay, whichis kind of the same. No, it's not the same thing. We otof those e endurancerequired for water bulow. I don't think that people realize how you can't evertouch the bottom. That is correct and the thing that's also different aboutwater polos. When there's a fowl. That's when all the action happens, soyou really never stop the only time you get to stop is when you score a goaland then n you celebrate Anelebr and Al Your in yeah, but it's nonstop. Do youwatch a lot of sports? I am pretty busy with the four childrenthat I have yeah and all the house stuff a going on, so I watch whet. Ican but ot a time I you know I have gotten more into NC DBE NC, a sportslaterly, and this I I'm sure this is really really interesting informationfor all of our lessoners right now we're just the nice thing about havinga podcast turns out. You can talk about pretty much whatever you want to talkabout. Ey Can always pass Forwa thirty seconds. They totally can't and I mightstill be talking about NC double a anyway I've gotten more into sports andC double a sports lately and it kills me 'cause. You know these playersthey're playing rough they're, tired right in the fourth quarter, but thenthere's always going to be a defensive lineman who gets a sack in the fourthquarter and thin. He gets up and he's like running around celebraten an like.You are burning all of your energy right there. The celebrations kill me,that's neither here nor there yea the this little random. So let's talk moreabout parenting. Okay, you and I both have four kids each and for a long timewe both only had girls. That is correct. How old were your girls when your firstson was born? Oh boy, so annerson's five, so udre would have been nine andLucy would have been five, so, okay, so befor a solid five year O so nine yearsyou had a girl for five years. You had two girls, corooked did peopever, askyou if you wanted a sun all the time and it was like Oh but you're, going togo for a son right, H, N, at as your response. The answer was no. My answerwas, I: have girls figured out, I'm good, being a dad to a girl and, if Iever want to do something that would be typically or stereotypically a guything. I'm like I take my girls yeah, so I mean it's not like it hampered meand not being able to do what I wanted to do. It actually gave me an excuse tosay, hey honey, I'm leaving this weekend with the girls yeah and shewould always yes go ahead. Go do it so wether any engineering or hiking orwhatever it was. The general perception is that guys need a son, R ht, I'm thesame way with I never felt like I had to have a so. In fact, I was morescared to have a son. I would have...

...preferred to have another girl, 'causeyeah figured out, I'm not a coach. I don't know how to play basketball. Idon't do football like there. I mean I can watch them, but that has been mybiggest concern with my boys, its like. I I'm not going to coach Youor Sumerteam, I'm not going to coach your basketball team. I mean I'll come toyour games, but that's not what I did, but you will take them to do some otherfun things you mentioned with your girls. You did cannineering hiking somegood high inventuried aigivities lot of outdoor stuff. What was the motivationbehind that? Was it just because you wanted to do that stuff and you wereinto it or yeah, it's it's something that I've always enjoyed and to to do it on my own or with somebodys.It was really hard, but when I told my wife that I was going to go and I wasgoing to take the girl, she was like yeah, that's great bonding time, so Iwas able to do more often yeah and and what effect do you think in time willtell tha what effect do you think these trips have had on your daughters? Iknow they really like it. We do go planning every year and and k o thehold planning with h with your family. Every hear family goes yeah, and so wewrite down all the things the same like better than I am I well. I you've knownthat for a long time, and so we sit down and they list allthe different things that they want to do and canioneering an and campingalways makes t e list, and so we try to make sure that we that we go on thosetrips, yeah, so skiing or whatever it is. Do you have plans to gocanioneering this year we don't have the date specifically set, but yeah. Wewe'll always go and we'll do Christopher Greek gorge, just behase itso easy and yeah it's a I it's it's one of the best canyons that we that I'vedone it's fun. So it's a lot O Fufun, yeah, very cool. So now that you havesons has, has it changed it all? Has it been harder for you just to t ke thegirls? Is there an expectation that you take Anderson too? What's what's thethought there? So we've had a lot of discussions about that on doing likedaynight nd. I think I saw that you guys have started doing da individualdatnights with your day with do day dates b. ut nights are just reservedfor the two of us, let's be on us, so I'm so sorry, so what we we still try to take the girls, R, R,our kids out and whether it's taking a minigulf or just to go, get yogetologyor to whatever little thing that they might want to do sure. Those are thethings that we'll go do, but I do take so last year. My role is that they getto go cany, nearing hen, they're five. So last year I took all three kids h tothe gorge to go. Do that and so all three kids irl Gon to do it again m? Dowe have a date set it's usually in July or August h, thes summer's going to bepretty busy, but I'm sure we'll figure it out. How did so anderson the fiveyear old? How did he do his first trip, so he so lucy by far was the the mostnatural. So Lucy is my my second daughter and she just we call her aspider monkey but Anderson. I had to switch it up to where I actuallystrapped him in and I blayd him down. Okay, he wasn't going to Blay himselfdone or hed'n'l grow into it. Aright. I...

E he'll probably do better each yearthat you go. Presumably th T, that's that's the hope. So do you think youthink your your girls are more adventurous than they would be becauseyou've taken them to do them to do these things. I think so. I think it's given themconfidence that they normally wouldn't have h. Some people might ask Oll. Doesyour wife go with you? My wife is pretty afraid of heights. It's it'spretty extreme, and so she has told me your wife's, a whimp, I'm just kiddingshe's, probably listening to this just to humor, yeah you're amazing. Definitely not awent, but there's certain things that she doesn't well. Never do. She'll,never go sky hvingsh. She doesn't like to nothing with sheer cliffs. Even tallbuildings are tough, but she'll do it if she needs to Um but thit's, just notsomething that she's interested in she'll go camping with us or whatever,but cant you near. How often? How often do you take your your girls, rockclimbing indoor? Oh Rock, climbing, it's been a long time. I have not allof the people that I had that I would go with moved away, O Sitrena used tobe rock climbing buddies. A few years back, it's probably been like he years.It's been a long time like a decade, yeah Um we did take. We did take our girls onceto the gym that we would climb at. Do you remember this En Atti Casati?Has She struggles with IES? We we did that rope 's course at the indoormainyevent se, you guys git was really hard for me to get outofhe to clip inand go out. She's she's got this thing with heights. There is a little briberythat you tried yeah. I think yeah Te Cofor, like twenty bucks. I did I LDOIpait her yeah. She ended up going ohgir yeah, but we we went rock climbing. Iremember we weldn't rock climing with you and your girls. It's probably beenfive or six years and addy. She was up. You know that beginner wall in the gymand she was about halfway up and I'm like addy. You got to go up or comedown like it's up to you, but like I really want you to go to the top andshe was nervous and scared and I was maybe pushing too hard and she turnedaround and said with tears in her eyes. U T you're,ruining rock climbing for me and my response was no I'm not because whatyou're doing right now isn't even rock climbing. I don't remember the A ail. I don'tremember that, but so a struggle with Anderson, 'cause he'll get up and he'llonly go up like ten feet and I'll be like I'm done. I'm like no you're, notyou have a long way to go. Oly, I'm just like you're, not done soe you getto the top. I know you gotta hit the Bar Yeah, but so let's talk for a moment, gender stereotypes, because I think youguys are really good with this and not to say that, like your kids are one wayor the other right, I'm not I'm not assuming or presuming anything therewill a few weeks ago. He came up to us and he's like he canI've pint my nails, we're like no we're not going to paint your neils he's likewell. Anderson gets t Anderson, Pantis Nail, all yeah, which I think isawesome well so like. If you were to Askgandirson anersince my five year old.If you're T ask Anderson, what's your...

...favorite, color he'll say rainbow,that's beautiful like it. It really is Rainbow Um. So like his backpack has abig rainbow on it he's he just loves every color and he paints his nails andhe does all that thing. But just recently he actually said mom. I I Idon't want to paint my nails anymore, because the kids at school are makingfun. Oh, that makes my heart I's. Really Sad. I mean he's in kindergarten,but but he still totally sports the rainbow he' s, just a very loving,loving child and- and we just love Hem for it. Yes, Itisa beautiful thing right and if a kit wants to paint his nails, let him if hewants to love rainbows incurrat like just be a kid and love it, and so at actually breaks my heay. He stillpaints his tone. Alls IE, F her own shoes, but he just he just likes. Heloves to paint he's very artistic and yeah. He just enjoys. He just enjoysrainbows yeah. That's awesome! Yes, really, FOL! All right any questionsfor me. I don't have any other questions written for you, but I feel,like you might have a gi aim like accidel parnting, a paning fail. Thatwas the whole thing. That's Ari haven't even asked me the point of this hihediscussion. That's funny! Okay! So honestly, these questions that I'mreading here Aubrey had written most of 'em, I'm going to take over the interviewyet okay, so I have two moments that are total dadfail. Okay. So, let'spretend let's pretend like so try tell me Um. When is a time that you had a parentingfail, so everything went wrong on the Flipsit, I'm going to follow upparenting, win, probably more parening fails, but II'lltry to think. I don't think through what a win would be. This is one thingthat Col an I did talk about in Acciel parening because of the name of thepodcast. I'm like Oh yeah. I E got a couple of those, so the first one iswith audry and what happened with her is when she was like three. You knowshe's going to listen to this yeah probably- and I I actually may havegotten permission, but I mean she was three, so it's Alteryeah, so Um tiffand I hadn't been married. Like a super long time not like we are now but H, II still thought it was kind of funny to you know Fart in front of my daughter,oand, like by the way we don't say that word in our House D, you say FlashHuligte no, to I just say: I'm Gassi, Oh Youre, Gu m, just gassie. Okay,you're just gathy M, so yeah, I don't know what we sayin, but not gassie. So I was I was I I went and like Iwould just far whenever need o Fart, I'm like it's, it's a botily function.You know it's natural, it's natural Um! Well, it wasn't natural, as whenever Idid it, I would laugh and then she would laugh- and I still remember, therS, my wife 's, just like hey. This is going to have consequencee, I'm like.Oh, that's, fine, not a big deal well fast forward. We were saying prayers Um at in her room, and my wife was sittingat the foot of the bed, and I was kneeling next to audry's. Bed andAudrei is kneeling on her bed km. I she's three sure Ky. So I'm saying theprayer and I'm like in the very middle...

...of the Paer and she leans over and shesticks her butt white. In my face and just lights me up like right, a MILLPA like I start laughing,she starts laughing and my wife is just I look at my wife and she just has. Shejust. Has this look and she's just like you made this bed, you need to figureit out, so that was one of mysells, becausethen I did have to have it a talk with my three year old, saying, Hey, yeah,probably not Oky, and then I've had to change my habits to where you know. Itry not to be free with my gassiness. Look, it's so hard. You Know My kidswill like Dad. I'm Li e guys, I'm really gassy. I just I'm sorry Gy thingand the older I get the worse. It gets. I'm sorry! That's that's! That must befun for everyone in your family ceas because we're getting old m. So thenthe other one was with Lucy. So going back to the stereotypes Um, you knowthe stereotype is for for boys, guys man, whatever it's very easy to go tothe bathroom. Wherever whenever you get a tree, there's a Bush, in fact, mykids, they drive down the street well ell, be on a road trip, a d someone obe like. Oh, I need to use the restroom and I'm like sorry, there's not a gasstation nearby and wills like there's a toilet. There's another Toi like everytree. They pass he's like there's a toilet, there's another one, there's atrailet, tines o toilets. What are you talking about anyway? Yeah a littledifferent for a girl but um so like I had I had actually I read a book on howto help girls go to the bathroom in the woods. Okay and I actually learnd quitea bit and what happened is when we were outswimming like often times the girls would be all wet and they'd be like t a,I have to go to the bethroom Om Mike Kay, not a problem. You know just goaround the corner and just go to the bathroom and then when they come backI'd, sposh Hem with water. You know, Lorin, you know little pe or whatever.Well, that's why they use chlorine. I know I know so there was this one timewhere she's like Dad. I really an to o o the bathroom. I'm, like okay, go to the bathroom, and so she goesothere and she does her thing and she comes back a she's like Tdat, I e Toythe paper I was like: Oh Wow. We took it to the next level, yeah and Um, so Ihad to go over there and I had to um take care of that yeah I had it andthen we had to have that talk. She was also very young at the time. Let meknow where there were yeah when that happened. It's funny I'v Got Twostories that relate to that. So when we lived in New York, in fact, Troy andTiffany were the only friends that visited us and it was amazing by the way and weall Yall, missed out on going to New York 'cause. We had the best time wehad the best time, and so when we lived in New York, we'd be at the park and ifmy kids needed to go to the bathroom- and there wasn't one nearby, I wouldtake hem into the bushes, and I figured out this thing where, if they put theirtheir backs on my chest and I kind o held up in the mottom of their legs andice squatted, and they S, it was like nd the got to aim it out Y, exactly butyeah. It's always a tricky thing with girls. I think you're also the one thattaught me that for girls, it's much easier to have them set on the side ofthe toilet than in the middle. Oh Yeah- and you taught me that, and that wasn'texcuse me that was invaluable. I was like Oh my gosh. This I makes so muchmore sense. Yeah 'cause they can hold...

...down the're, not yeah. Just so there'sa little tip from two dads too. Her wel go out there. The other story that Iwas going to tell that had to do with that. I completely forgot. So it mustnot have been that great. After all, I kindof miss it. I kinda want to knowthat R, what w wh it was something about toilets bathroom. Oh you weretalking about New York. We were the only eer and an visited Ou New Yorkwasn't the time that we walked into the kids in the Battub and there was afloating Brown log. Did that happen? Yes, I don't remember that. No, Iremember I remember this e. We tell a story that we've told previously in ourpockcastbo about corn in the bathtub ooh and one of our kids as like. Where did all this food come? Probably I'm like nobody touch anythingeverybody had of the TUB. It was awful all right. So, let's wrap this up. OAT,you know a be loves to play games and she, you know, brought me into the foldof your enjoyer, so we're going to play a little game of wood. You rather yeah.You mentioned this. I didn't know how so h, cold did taxts me. Did youlastnigt and I'm like. I don't know how dark he's going to go on this or, ifit's ver so like, I went pretty dark and I was like I jus kit friendly. Iknow I know so I, if you're going to ask me to give you one, I'm going tohave to come up with it on a fly. Let me okay, let me ask I've got some foryou and then you can think about it. For a few minutes, we can pause if weneed to an AREN COR onokay. So would you rather eat gum off the bottom of ofa school desk? Is it my school desk, no okay or eat a meal gs? This is mad or eat ameal that was prepared by someone that you know had been up all night with thestomach flu and is not known to be a big handwasher. If that was the case, I'd go with thegum. I Wud ID definitely go think IFI SAcances. At least I wouldn't know, and I would just hope for the best. Ithink I'm with you all right, you ready for this next one. Yes, would you rather jump into a pool ofice, cold pickle juice once or have to bathe in warm pickle juicefor an entire week? It's quite random. I would go with coldpickled juice once get it over W ad it over rip off a banded. Okay, all right!Yeah! I'm learning a lot about you here, okay, allright last one for me. Would you rather never speak again forthe rest of your life other than the word tenderloin or, and you see that's the only wordsyou can sender, Enterlan, that's it's tenderone or wellwould. You get a large face tattoo designed byMarilyn Manson, that's spelled incorrectlyisthere a third offon tenderlon for the rest of my livethaterface at to les a Toas the rest of...

...your life too yeah I mean I guess I could get a face:Transplant Er try to get it removed or something holewe smoke, Um that that isI'm. I've got tears in my this last Onei guess, and it's not a vulgar thing.Thais tattooed on my face now, just so designed by Mariland, masion ANNSPELLED AIR ATS already bad, Oh man. So it's not even like I'd, be artistic oranything like that. It would be pretty rough Um, but I'd still have to go withthat. Only take the risk like yeah, because at least I could still canhersa story behind. I could wear a hood on my face or something better thantenderly for the rest of my life or the Renearr Life Nen Yeah. No, all right!So we're going to have you think of a couple of of. Would you rathers for me?So would you rather have to forget everything that happens every day so,like you ma stay first day like fifty first dates: okay, like every day orwould you rather have to relive Granian day over that's a good one? Would Irather fifty first dates or groundhog day fifty fir states fifty first stadium 'cause, then I l just progress. I justhope that I find out of Thesan hemakes it just a beautiful little video for me.That'll help me remember, or at least that would be a little understand. Okay,good Questio, so I've got another one for you. Would you rather have your favorite sports team loseevery time, so whatever you just said that you were into Izana state, hey NCA,I guess you're used to this. This is a pointcoma. Dit beat organ. Are Yoyu N UH YEA? I don't. I don't dosports that much and they're just always they're Kinda, like ass. Youalways just on't know about that Oo.

If you recall, when we played the newlywed game for Tiffany's podcast, we talked about when you got into a littlebit of trouble with the law. I do recall this and then I said I wasgoing to bring it up, but I I didn't bring it up at our interview. So let'slet's hear the story...

...alright. So I hope this is an a Antreximaking story, but it is. It is a story that I will never forget. Um when I was in college. I had a very good friend of mine, Blakeand, and I would go and we would go back country, skiing, clash, Ta Warden,he se and I snowboarded, and what we would do is we go to different resortsand we'd, give a lifty a candy bar to let us go up, one run and we had our snowshoes and we had allthe gear to go back country, and so we did that hell on. You were bribing them with acandy bar h with a candy bar wow o like a snaper meay. They let me take one litSAR or like CAS WE E to get one of thes stuf e UC. I go OAD, and so we went upand this was a util. We went up to onresorts and then we went off h. We so wer to down to where we knew we couldgo back country we' duck the ropes and we started blazing a trail to getup to one of the PIZAN. Then wewere planning on on snowboarding out abound,so we weren't even planning cuming back into the resort. So we had gotten togood point where we were at the very top of where we were going to startgoing down and the guys on the skis already hadtheir skis clipped in, and I was sitting down getting on my board and wesaw some skaper, so guy started yelling at us, and so there were three of usand one of the guys that was on skis. He was like forget tat and he ana justtook off, but I wasn't going to be able to get my board on in time to go, andso my other skebuddy stayed with me and the Ski Pantrol guys were sofurious. They were so mad and we're like whats the deal and what they said as because we had blazeda trail now. Other skiers were GOINGTO, follow wor path and they were going togo out of Bas too, and I'm like okay great well. They didn't think that wasa good response, so they took me down to their like little policeheadquarters thing at the resort and I ended up getting charged with theclaspy misdemeter Olou services. Theft of services, Doctor Service, wild, soUm, my buddy and I ended up having to go to. We went to court and we plaed on nocontest which basically meant we just wasted our time. 'CAUSE, then the judgeis like okay, if you don't do anything for six months, het'll be epoch fromyour record, but yeah. I was just painted Abou t because we uh it justtook a lot of time. 'cause we had to go back into ejuristiction where they wereand we were. We were down South Yeah, so thateiting Bu er, but I dofeel like the lesson learned. Is People need to figure out how to get their bord on faster right? If youcouldave got your snowboard Eah, the...

...other guy got away. Sorry, the other guy did get away. Sothe guy that took off he went down and then he ended up 'cause hepart in ThaParkin Lontof, the scezor he went down and then he ended up taking off his ee.Whatever ad e, all te cant o one of the guys trying to chase him or not, but Imean we're all weare all pretty good. If, if I had my Bord, I don't think itwould Av Noyou eve pretty big track, it's not like you could surrightsheended up getting up on the road and he kindof like hit, I think, and then hehit chacking back up to the resorting Anoverman out R you under the bus 'cause. If theyhadn't caught you, they probably would have gone after him and caught him Wy I mean possibly an Iraqoi Lik D.Neven know the guy's name so they're like who was that I'm, like EST, don'tknow H, O that's funny. I don't know what I abut. Um Irea a couple more times that we didn'tget caught, but it was Jus Tgat, one time and uh yeah and no regrets you. Don't we probably no R, no OTI, no ragrats, no REGRAT,all right! That's what that's! What your face tad to is going to be spelled.It's Coan be an incorrect spelling of no regrets designed by who was itMarilynd, Manson Yeah? I was Aanser? U enjoy that eeybody thinoh yeah thethingabout that is. I think if I got that Ad Ywo in ten years, I still wouldn't bein any trouble like what happened over the past after last night.
