S01E21: Adventure Parenting

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 of accidental parenting podcast. This week, if you've been listening, we've been following a trend. A couple weeks ago we had an open adoption and option, open and open, open adoption. Yes, thank you. Story followed by an interview with an attorney, an adoption attorney, and this week we have that attorney's husband. This is troy. Say Hi, Trillo. Everyone, try. You've got a great podcasting voice. I have no idea. No, I can hear it right now and I'm telling you, you've got a great voice for this before the even look, you may bomb the interview, but your voice is Great. Well, hopefully other people enjoy the just listen to my voice. Yet maybe you can put him to sleep. There's probably no, no, no things they could do. It's funny. This is maybe a little bit information that we haven't shared with people in the past, but usually when we interview people for the PODCAST, we send out a list of interview questions. We want them to prep to think about some of the things that they're going to say, and I wouldn't call it scripted, but you know, they have an idea of what's coming. And when I told Troy that I was going to send him the interview questions. He refused. Yeah, I have no idea what's going to be happening. He said, no, I don't want any questions. I want this to be spur of the moment, spontaneous in fact. He said, I want I want you remember saying this. See You said I want to be able to look you in the eyes, like we need to be sitting in in just focusing on each other, looking each other in the eyes. Well, I took it so seriously. I haven't even listened to any of the podcast. That's far. So I am really thank prepared. Thanks so much. Yeah, you know, I know, I hit like a lot, though, so I've got a great story of how I met Troy. But before I do that, we like to start these interviews with an awkward personal question. You ready sure, and since you haven't listened to any previous podcast, I'm going to ask the same question that I asked previously. In what order do you wash yourself in the shower and what order I wash myself in the shower? So, and this is kid friendly, by the way. Okay, so I interesting enough. I always start top down. I start with my head. Waterfall effect, waterfall effect. I START I shampoo my hair and then I shave. I'm shave in the shower. Shave in the shower. Yeah, so I do not shave in the shy. I have a beard, so I don't. You can't shave it all right now, I brush my teeth in the shower. I do that too. It's so just feeling in the world. I brush it. So that's true. I brush my teeth. Why? The water is getting warm. So I'm in there. I I brush my teeth, then I washed my hair up, then I shave and then I use a Lufa, and I'm a big fan of the Lufa, and then I have at it. So you know, some people go washcloth. Yeah, that's so much laundry. I know you like because you I'm not re using washcloths. TIFF uses the Washcloth, really, and I fold the launch did she unders a new one every day, every day. All right. So, continuing with the awkward personal question, that one really was not awkward, unless you're envisioning me not wearing clothes, then that could be all this is. C are looking eye to...

...eye right now. I'm actually looking around the room for something. There's a prop that I want to use in a later story and I can't quite place it. The Turtle. It is not the turtle, that's you and it's a fake turtle. That's not real. I'll, what's take a picture of that. You do the laundry. How often do you wash your bathing your shower towel? So tiff usually washes and I fold. Okay, that's usually how we work it out. We wash our towels once a week. Once a week. Yeah, that's about what we do. If, if I didn't have so much kid laundry to do, I do it every couple of days. Yeah, but you know, I mean I know people that will only use it once and then the wash it. They don't use a toil twice. I'm like, you're clean getting out of the shower. It lasts a couple of it doesn't mean yeah, once it's after a week, you need to change it out. Speaking of laundry, I try to stay caught up on laundry. I work from home, so makes it really nice if I have a fifteen, third a minute breaking between calls, I can go switcher do a load of laundry real quick. It's kind of awesome. So it doesn't leave all this laundry to the weekend, like a lot of parents have to do. But this morning I woke up and walked upstairs and I saw there were some loads of lawn or some piles of laundry in my kids room. So I picked him up and threw them in the wash, got them washed, got them folded, had them put them back in their drawers and I helped with some of the littles put there's in their drawers. And as I walk back downstairs I saw one of their dirty clothes hamper was like already full of laundry. I had just finished all of their laundry and they had refilled it in like a matter of hours. So it sounds like you just needed to fold to close again, because there's no way they were dirty though they were. Oh, this was a pile of clothes that was in the bathroom. I didn't check the bathroom. That's unfortunate rookie mistake. Sorry about that. Yeah, all right. So some things about troy, and I know quite a bit about you. Before I do a full introduction, want to talk about one of the first times that we met. So I mentioned earlier that I was looking for a prop in the room and I found it. Troy, can you describe what I'm holding in my hands right now? It looks like a little black book that maybe Cole had before he was married of all of the girlfriends that I might have and maybe he keeps it around. This is needs. It isn't special, it's business. It's a business card book. Okay, so when Aubrey and I were first married, we'd start we'd get business cards as I'm like, what do you do? But with business cards? This is like two thousand and four and I decided to buy a little business card book, a little portfolio. Actually did have one of those. Yeah, the first one here is a d three ring binder, though this is this is a little small. Yeah, I don't have many cards in here. The first one in here is a guy named jody. He was our next door neighbor, a guy named jody. Oh yeah, jody, Joe, Joe, Dy Joe thing. Yeah, Nice Guy, our next door neighbor in the first condo that we had, and he was a retired guy. He's hit is, his position is, quote unquote, retired, and he had to be a business card. Yeah, or like your second one. It was Spencer's appliances, Spencer's appliances. I've...

...got something for Arizona State University. There's a mortgage company, camel back, Volkswagen House cleaning, and here it is Troy Hill Land Project Manager. It actually has a title on it. Vaulty homes, the web communities. Okay, yeah, this business card. There's a lot of history behind this business card. So the first time that I met troy, maybe it was in the first time we met, but the first time we actually spoke and got to know each other, was that my sister's wedding. Yes, in two thousand and five. Wasn't it cams reception, Courtney's reception? It was a year after Aubrey and I had been married. Courtney was married a year later and we chatted. We had a good time. I remember thinking, Oh, he's pretty cool. And tiffany was always a good a good friend. You know growing up she was. She was good cousin, not quite friends yet we grew into that, as will tell in this story. And as troy left he slipped me his business card. It's like, Hey, call me sometime, let's hang out. In this business card, I kid you not, sat in the like the side console of my door for my car for about two years and you and I don't think we spoke once. No, we didn't see it until we had kids and I'm sure tiff and I had the discussion of like those jerks like really, give me a business card. I guess apparently we weren't that interesting because I didn't want to to continue these funny is that the conversing two thousand and four is like, Oh, yeah, here's my business cards, call me. Who would do that today? Yeah, back then I think I had a blackberry, so it wasn't. I mean you just no one texted like we text today. Correct. I Oh, here, I'll text you my number. I'll get to give you a call re quick. This is very different. Yeah, and then we just lived in different cities and just didn't happen. But now, a couple years later, are lots of were boards and now, a few years after that, lots of kids between us, we've got eight kids total. It kids total. That's a lot and we still have no idea what we're doing as parents. Good and better. Every day get a little bit better. It is hit and miss. I have my moments. None of them are in prison yet, so that's good. That's well, hopefully they're all too young. Dude in a prison. It's true. All right. So I'm going to make some because I know you pretty well. I don't know everything about you. I'm going to make some assumptions about you and I want you to 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 in California? I did. It's a little town by Fresno called Hanford, California. Hanford, yeah, it is. It has the largest available male population, single male population, in all California, because of how many prisons there are. there. No, and so you heard it right here, ladies. There's a lot. There's a lot of a lot of available men in the Central Valley. Okay,...

...very interesting. All right. Your first job in high school was a pool boy. You cleaned pools. I also did not do that. No, I worked at a cabinet shop, okay, and I built cabinets, okay, for commercial schools and stuff like that. Your top sports in high school were tennis and Water Polo. Water Polo. I DID NOT PLAY TENNIS IN L Ding High School. Yeah, it was water pool and swimming. Okay, which is the kind of the same that? No, it's not the same thing. Well, water post to be endurance required for water polo. I don't think that people realize how you can't ever touch the bottom. That is correct. And the thing that's also different about water polos when there's a foul, that's when all the action happens. So you really never stop. The only time you get to stop is when you score goal and then you can you celebrate and celebrating all you're in a yeah, but it's nonstop. Do you watch a lot of sports? I am pretty busy with the four children that I have. Yeah, and all the house stuff I'm going on. So I watch when I can, but not a ton. I've you know, I have gotten more into NCUBLE NCAA sports lately and this is I'm sure this is really, really interesting information for all of our listeners. Right now we're just chet. The Nice thing about having a podcast turns out you can talk about pretty much whatever you want to talk about and they can always pass for it. Thirty seconds they totally can't, and I might still be talking about NC double a sports anyway, I've gotten more into sports, NCAA sports, lately and it kills me because you know, these players are playing rough, they're tired right in the fourth quarter, but then there's always going to be a defensive lineman who gets a sack in the fourth quarter and then he gets up and he's like running around celebrating. Men like you are burning all of your energy right there. The celebrations kill me. That's neither here nor there. Yeah, that's that's a little random. So let's talk more about parenting. Okay, you and I both have four kids each and for a long time we both only had girls. That is correct. How old were your girls when your first son was born? Oh boy, so Anderson's five. So Audrey would have been nine and Lucy would have been five. So, but okay, so for a solid five years. So, so nine years. You had a girl. For five years you had two girls. Correct. Did people ever ask you if you wanted a son all the time and it was like, oh, but you're going to go for a son right, yeah, and what was your response? The answer was now, my answer was I have girls figured out. I'm good being a dad to a girl and if I ever want to do something that would be typically or stereotypically a guy thing, I'm like, I take my girls. Yeah, so, I mean it's not like it hampered me and not being able to do what I wanted to do. It actually gave me an excuse to say, Hey, honey, I'm leaving this weekend with a girl's yeah, and she would always yeah, go ahead, go do it. So, whatever was the engineering or hiking or whatever was, the general perception is that guys need a son, right, and I'm the same way with I never felt like I had to have a sun effect. I was more scared...

...to have a son. I would have preferred to have another girl, because Ye have that figured out. I'm not a coach. I don't know how to play basketball, I don't do football like there. I mean I can watch them, but that has been my biggest concern with my boys, is like, I'm not going to coach your soccer team, I'm not going to coach your basketball team. I mean, I'll come to your games, but that's not what I did. But you will take them to do some other fun things you mentioned with your girls. You Did Canyon nearing hiking, some good high venture EXEC activities. A lot of outdoor stuff. What was the motivation behind that? Was it just because you wanted to do that stuff and you were into it, or yeah, it's something that I've always enjoyed and to to do it on my own or with some buddies, it was really hard. But when I told my wife that I was going to go and I was going to take the girl, she's like yeah, that's great bonding time. So I was able to do more often. Yeah, and what effect do you think? And time will tell, but what affect do you think these trips have had on your daughters? I know they really like it. We do goal planning every year and and those goal planning with the with your family every year, family goals. Yeah, and so we write down all the things, so much that other than I am. Well, I you've known that for a long time. Yeah, and so we sit down and they list all the different things that they want to do and Canyon nearing and camping always makes the list and so we try to make sure that we that we go on those trips. Yeah, so skiing or whatever it is. Do you have plans to go canyoneering this year? We don't have the date specifically set. But yeah, we will always go and we'll do Christopher Creek gorge just because it's so easy and yeah, it's a I'm it's it's one of the best canyons that we that I've done. It's fun. So it's a lot of fun fun. Yeah, very cool. So now that you have sons, has has it changed it all? Has it been harder for you just to take the girls are is there an expectation that you take Anderson to what's the thought there? So we've had a lot of discussions about that. On doing like date night, and I think I saw that you guys have started doing day individual date nights with your day day. We do day dates because it's nights are just reserved for the two of us. Let's be honest. Oh well, I'm so sorry. So what we we still try to take the girls or our kids out and whether it's taking a mini golf or just to go get yogurtology or to whatever little thing that they might want to do, sure those are the things that will go do. But I do take so last year my role is that they get to go canyoneering when they're five. So last year I took all three kids to the gorge to go do that, and so all three kids will going to do it again. Do we have a date set? It's usually enjoly or August. The summer is going to be pretty busy, but I'm sure we'll figure it out. How did so Anderson, the five year old, how did he do his first trip? So he so lucy by far was the the most natural. So Lucy is my my second into daughter and she just we call her a spider monkey. But Anderson I had to switch it up to where I actually strapped him in and I belayed him down. Okay, he wasn't going to blame himself down. or he'll grow into it right like. He'll...

...probably do better each year that you go. Presumably that's the that's the hope. That's the hope. Yeah, so do you think? You think your girls are more adventurous than they would be because you've taken them to do them, to do these things? I think so. I think it's given him confidence that they normally wouldn't have. Some people might ask hold, does your wife go with you? My wife is pretty afraid of heights. Huh, it's pretty extreme, and so she has told me. Your wife's a whimp. Yeah, well, no, I'm just kidding. She's probably listening to this just to humor us. Yeah, she's not. We love you, tiff and yeah, you're amazing. Definitely not a whim. But the certain things that she doesn't, will never do. She'll never go skydiving, show she doesn't like to nothing with sheer cliffs. Even tall buildings are tough, but she'll do it if she needs to. But this just not something that she's interested in. She'll go camping with us or whatever. But canny nearing now. How often? How often do you take your your girl's rock climbing indoor? Oh, rock climbing? It's been a long time, has it? I have not. All of the people that I had that I would go with moved away. Cole so try and I used to be rock climbing buddies a few years back. It's probably been like an years. It's been a long time, like a decade. Yeah, was. We did take we did take our girls once to the gym that we would climb at. Yeah, do you remember this? When Addie, because Addie has she struggled with heights. We we did that. wrote scores at the indoor main event with you guys go up to go. It was really hard for me to get outdy to clip in and go up. She's she's got this thing with heights. There was a little bribery that you tried. Yeah, think, yeah, the go for like twenty bucks. I did. I told it. I paid her. Yeah, she ended up going okay, but yeah, but we went rock climbing. I remember we wouldn't rock climbing with you and your girls. It's probably been five or six years. And Addy, she was up, you know, that beginner wall in the gym, and she was about halfway up and I'm like, addy, you got to go up or come down, like it's up to you, but like I really want you to go to the top. And she was nervous and scared and I was maybe pushing too hard and she turned around and said, she with tears in her eyes, that you're ruining rock climbing for me and my response was no, I'm not, because what you're doing right now isn't even rock climbing. I don't remember that. Fail I don't remember that. But sorry. I struggle with Anderson because he'll get up and he'll only go up like ten feet and I'll be like I'm done. I'm like no, you're not. You're a long way to go. toally. I'm just like you're not done. See you get to the top. I know you gotta hit the bar. Yeah, but so let's talk for a moment gender stereotypes, because I think you guys are really good with this, and not to say that like your kids are one where the other. Right, I'm not. I'm not assuming or presuming anything. There will. A few weeks ago he came up to us. He's like, Hey, can I paint my nails? We're like no, we're not going to paint your nails. He's like, well, Anderson gets to and Orson Paints his nails all the time. Yeah, which I think is awesome. Well, so, like if you were to ask Anerson Ander, since my five year old, if you were to...

...ask Anderson what's your favorite color, he'll say rainbow. That's beautiful. Like it, and it really is rainbow. So, like his backpack has a big rainbow on it. He's he just loves every color and he paints his nails and he does all that thing. But just recently he actually said, mom, I don't want to paint my nails anymore because the kids at school or making fun. That breaks my heart. Is Really Sad. I mean he's in kindergarten, but but he still totally sports the Rainbow. He just a very loving, loving child and and we just love him for it. Yes, it's a beautiful thing, right. Yeah, and if a kid wants to paint it it his nails, let him. If he wants to love rainbows and current like just be a kid and love it. And so I think I we actually breaks my head. He still paints his tonnails. Good for her, and shoes, but he just he just likes it. He loves to paint. He's very artistic and yeah, he just enjoys. You just enjoys rainbows. Yeah, that's awesome. Yes, really cool. All right, any questions for me? I don't have any other questions written for you, but I feel like you might have a place ask me. Like accidental pairing, a pairenting failed. That was the whole thing. That's early is you haven't even asked me the point of this entire discussion. That's funny. Okay, so, honestly, these questions that I'm reading here, Aubrey had written most of them. It's going to take over the interview yet. Okay, so I have two moments that are total dad fails. Okay, so let's pretend. Let's pretend like as you so try tell me when is a time that you had a parenting fail, like so everything went wrong. And on the flip side, I'm going to follow up parenting win. Probably more parenting fails, but I'll try to think. I didn't think through what a win would be. This is one thing that Cole and I did talk about, an accidental parenting because of the name of the podcast. I'm like, Oh yeah, I got a couple of those. So the first one is with Audrey, and what happened with her is when she was like three. You know she's going to listen to this. Yeah, probably, and I actually may have gotten permission, but I mean she was three, so it's all terry. Yeah, so tiff and I hadn't been married like a super long time, not like we are now, but I still thought it was kind of funny to, you know, Fart and front of my daughter. Okay, and like, by the way, we don't say that word in our house. You say flashlight, no to I just say I'm lot, I'm gassy. Oh your guys, I'm just gassy. Okay, you're just gassy. Yeah, so, yeah, I don't know, we're say, but not gassy. So I was. I was. I went and like I would just fart whenever I need a Fart. I'm like, it's it's a bodily function, you know, it's natural. It's natural. Okay, what was it natural as whenever I did it, I would laugh and then she would laugh, and I still remember there's my wife was just like, Hey, this is going to have consequence. It's I'm like, oh, that's fine, not a big deal. Well, fast forward. We were saying prayers at in her room and my wife was sitting at the foot of the bed and I was kneeling next to Audrey's bed and audrey is kneeling on her bed. Okay, might, and she's three. Sure, okay. So I'm saying the prayer and I'm like in the very middle of...

...the prayer and she leans over and she sticks her butt right in my face and just lights me up, like right in the middle of prayer. Like I start laughing, she starts laughing and my wife is just I look at my wife and she just has she just has this look and she's just like you made this bed, you need to figure it out. So that was one of my bells, because then I did have to have a talk with my three year old saying hey, yeah, probably not okay. And then I've had to change my habits to where, you know, I try not to be free with my gassiness. Look and it's so hard. You know, my kids will like Dad, I'm like, guys, I'm really Ghassy. I just I'm sorry, it's a guy thing and the older I get the worst it gets. I'm sorry. That's that's that must be fun for everyone in your family, because it's because we're getting old. Yeah, so then the other one was with Lucy. So going back to the stereotypes, you know, the stereotype is for four boys, guys, men, whatever. It's very easy to go to the bathroom wherever. Whenever you got a tree, there's a Bush. In fact, my kids, they drive down the street, will be on a road trip and someone to the like Oh, I need to use the rest room, and I'm like, I sorry, there's not a gas station nearby, and wheel's like there's a toilet, there's another toilet like every tree that passed. He's like there's a toilet, there's another one. Hey, there's a toilet, the tons of toilets. What are you talking about? Anyway? Yeah, a little different for a girl. But so, like I had, if I had actually I read a book on how to help girls go to the bathroom in the woods, okay, and I actually learned quite a bit. And what happened is when we were out swimming, like oftentimes, the girls will be all wet and be liked, I have to go to the bathroom. I'm like Hey, and not a problem, you know, just go around the corner and just go to the bathroom and then when they come back, I'd splash with water, you know, chlorine. That's you know, gets little pee or whatever. Well, that's why they use chlorine. I know, I know. So there was this one time where she's like, Dad, I really need to go to the bathroom. I'm like, okay, go to the bathroom, and so she goes over there and she does her thing and she comes back she's like, Dad, I need toilet paper. I was like, Oh wow, we took it to the next level. Yeah, and so I had to go over there and I had to take care of that. I yeah, I had it and then we had to have that talk. She was also very young at the time. Let me know where there are. Yeah, when that happened. It's funny. I've got two stories that relate to that. So when we lived in New York, in fact, Troy and Tiffany were the only friends that visited us, and it was amazing, by the way, when we all y'all missed out on going to New York because we had the best time. We had the best time. And so when we lived in New York, we'd be at the park and if my kids needed to go to the bathroom and there wasn't one nearby, I would take them into the bushes and I figured out this thing where if they put their their backs on my chest and I kind of held up the bottom of their legs and I squatted and they school it was like, and then they got aim it out. Yeah, but, yeah, exactly. But yeah, it's always a tricky thing with girls. I think you're also the one that taught me that for girls, it's much easier to have them set on the side of the toilet than in the middle. Oh Yeah, and you taught me that and that wasn't excuse me, that was invaluable. I was like, oh my gosh, this a Max, so much more sense. Yeah, because I they can hold down. They're not. Yeah,...

...just so that's a little tip from two dad's to there. Were you out there? The other story that I was going to tell that had to do with that I completely forgot. So it must not have been that great after all. I kind of Miss It. I kind of want to know that story. What were we t what we did? What? It was something about toilets, bathrooms. Oh, you were talking about New York. We were the only ones that were in to visit you in New York. Was the time that we walked into the kids in the bathtub and there was a floating Brown log. Now, I did that happen? Yes, you know, remember that? No, I remember. I remember this. We we tell a story that we've told previously on our podcastry about corn in the bathtub. Oh, and one of our kids is like, where did all this food come from? I'm like, nobody touch anything. Everybody out of the TUB. It was awful. All right, so let's wrap this up. It's a great you know, abury loves to play Games and she's, you know, brought me into the fold of Game Gainer. So we're going to play a little game of would you rather? Yeah, you mentioned this. I didn't know how to so he cold it. Text me. I texted you last night and I'm like, I don't know how dark he's gonna go on this or if it's every them. Let me so, like, I went pretty dark and hopefully this is kid friendly. I know, I know. So I if you're going to ask me to give you one, I'm gonna have to come up with it on a fly. Let me okay, let me ask. I've got some for you. Okay, and then you can think about it for a few minutes. We can pause if we need to agree. Of course. Sounds okay. So would you rather eat gum off the bottom of a school desk? Is it my school desk? No, okay, or eat a meal? This is bad, or eat a meal that was prepared by someone that you know had been up all night with the stomach flu and is not known to be a big hand Washer? If that was the case, I'd go with the gum. I definitely go with to think of I think my chances. At least I would know and I would just hope for the best. I think I'm with you there. All right, you're ready for this next one? Yes, would you rather jump into a pool of ice cold pickle juice once or have to bathe in warm pickle juice for an entire week? It's quite random. I would go with cold pickle juice once. Just get it over with, get it over with, rip off that Bandaid. Okay, all right, yeah, I'm learning a lot about you here. Okay, all right, last one for me. Would you rather never speak again for the rest of your life other than the word tenderloin? Or and just see that's the only words you can sider? Tenderly, that's it. Tender on or when? Would you get a large face tattoo designed by Marilyn Manson that's spelled incorrectly? There a third option, Che tenderloin for the rest of my life, or the wor face tattoo,...

...because the face tattoos the rest of your life too. Yeah, I mean, I guess I could get a face transplanter try to get it removed or something. Holy smokes, that is I'm kind. I've got tears in my eyes. This last one, I guess, and it's not a vulgar thing. That's tattooed on my face? No, just something that's designed by Marilyn Manson and spelled as pretty bad man. It's it's not even like a be artistic or anything like that. Would be pretty rough, but I'd still have to go with that. But really take the risk. Like yeah, because at least I could still convers a story behind I could wear a hood on my face or something. It's better than tenderlin yet for the rest of my life, for the render of your life tenderly. Yeah. No, all right. So we're going to have you think of a couple of would you rather's for me. Okay. So, would you rather have to forget everything that happens every day? So like you specty first day, like fifty first states? Okay, like every day, or would you rather have to relive a ground the same day over? That's a good one. Would I rather fifty one dates or groundhog day? Fifty one states? Fifty one state? Yep, because the night at least progressing. Just hope that I find Adams and and he makes it just a beautiful little video for me. That'll help me remember, or at least that would be lovely understand. Okay, good question. So I've got another one for you. Okay, would you rather have your favorite sports team lose every time? So whatever. I you just said that you were intos in the state and see, I guess you're used to this. This is a point. Come on, did beat organ? We be why you fan? Yeah, I don't. I don't do sports that much and they're just always they're kind of like as you always just a laugh. I don't know about that. The Bowl Game, they the bowl game that were the even eligible for? Did they win six like yeah, they played Hawaii. Yeah, they it was. That's like. They always play the alohaball like that's that's at this point. It's not even a bowl game. Or they play in like Vegas, but whatever. That's what they used to be. It was fun when I was in college going in doing that. Okay, so back. Would you rather have your favorite team, whatever team you were rooting, for sure you always knew they were going to lose because of you, because of me, cuse of you, or would you rather never be able to play sports, any type of sports, for the rest of your life? Wood, and I know you and Aubrey are big sports people. So yeah, pickleball, no, volleyball, I couldn't do that. Every every Saturday morning we play volleyball and we try to play pickle ball once every couple of weeks. Sorry, team, you'RE gonna lose. So every team you ever route it for, you knew they were going to lose. I don't root for many teams. So, but you knew, if you ever had a desire, they were going to lose.

So thanks for coming on US podcast, thanks for having me call, who was a lot of fun. Thanks for listening everyone. See you next time. True, does have a really good voice on the Piley, I know right. If I had to compare his voice to a celebrity, I would say that Troy's voice is George Clooney. Oh, that's a good comprehend. Yeah, he could do like radio commercials, like voice over work. Hey, really could. In fact, you heard it here first. Troy, if you're looking for a new GIG, you could do voice over work. You could. You could work with Megan Marcole, because she's looking for voice over work too. Oh, yeah, she's come into the states. She's going to need some employment. Yeah, make sure her you could be a voice over. First thing as well be cartoons on the next animated film. So the reason for this follow up after Troy's interview. If you're following along in this series of events, we interview Troy's wife last week and we played the newly wed game where Troy talked about getting in trouble with the law. Yeah, I just say you mentioned you get arrested and then you wouldn't let us have I wouldn't let us have the details. I held it as a teaser and then I forgot to ask him during my interview with him. And we need to hear it and we're going to we're going to call him up right now and we're going to get the real story about how troy got in trouble with the law. This is troy. Oh, Hello Troy. Hello, Coleman, Aubrey is here in the room with me as well. Say Hi to Aubrey. Hello Aubery, Hey, and we we were discussing two things. One, how great of a voice you have for podcasting. I will take your work for it because I don't want care in my own voice. So you of that now. It's really good. It's fantastic and voice over work. All right, I'm in. All right, we'll sign you up with Megan Markle's agent. Sounds good. And to if you recall when we played the newly wed game for Tiffany's podcast, we talked about when you got into a little bit of trouble with the law. I do recall this, and then I said I was going to bring it up, but I didn't bring it up at our interview. So let's let's hear the...

...story. All right. So I hope this is an anti climactic story, but it is. It is a story that I will never forget. When I was in college, I had a very good friend of mine, Blake, and he and I would go and we we go back country, skiing, clashnowboard and he skied Nice snowboarded and what we would do is we go to different resorts and we give a lifty a candy bar to let us go up one run and we had our snow shoes and we had all the gear to go back country, and so we did that. Hold on, you were bribing them with a candy bar. Yeah, with the Candy Bar. Wow, like sneaker. You take one lift up, like get one left up. And so we went up, and this is in Utah. We went up to one resorts and then we went off. We still work it down to where we knew we could go back country. We ducked the ropes and we started blazing a trail to get up to one of the peaks and then we were planning arms on stillboarding out a bound so we weren't in planning and curry back into the resort. So we had gotten to the point where we were at the very top of where we were going to start going down and the guys on the skis already had their skis clipped in and I was sitting down getting on my board and we saw some ski patrol guys start yelling at us, and so there were three of us and one of the guys that was on skis he's like forget this and he actually just took off, but I wasn't going to be able to get my board on in time to go, and so my other ski buddies stayed with me, and the ski patrol guys were so furious, they were so mad. We're like what's the deal? And what they said is because we had blazed a trail no other skiers, we're going to follow our path and they were going to go out of battles too, and I'm like, okay, Great. Well, they didn't think that was a good response, so they took me down to their like little police headquarters thing at the resort and I ended up getting charged with the class be misdemeanor for wow services, theft of services, theft of services. That's why called it. So my buddy and I ended up having to go to we went to court and we played no contest, which basically meant we just wasted our time, because then the judge was like, okay, if you don't do anything for six months, will be expensed from your record. But it was yeah, who's just a painted the butt because we just took a lot of time because we had to go back into the juristics room where they were and we were we're dumb stuff that. Yeah, so that's super exciting, but yeah, that maxic though, but I do feel like the lesson learned is people need to figure out how to get their board on faster. Right, if you could have got your snowboard. Yeah, the...

...other guy got away. Yeah, okay, so sorry, the other guy did get away. So the guy that took off, he went down and then, because we parts in the parking lot of the steers are, he went down and then he ended up take it off, as he's ever made all the time. One of the guys try to chase him or not, but I mean we're all we are all pretty good. If I had my boy, I don't think it would have. Well, I know you need a pretty big track. It's not like you can hide, sure, back in your powder right. But he ended up getting up on the road and he kind of like hit, I think, and then he ended up hitchhiking back up to the resort. In every man, you under the bus, because if they hadn't caught you, they probably would have gone after him and caught him, I mean possibly. And irock, we like I didn't know the guy's name. So they're like who was that? I'm like, we don't know what that's funny. But all right, a couple more times and we didn't get caught, but it was just that one time. And Yeah, and no regrets. You know, we probably no regrets, no time, no ragrets, no regrets. All right, that's what that's what your face tattoo is going to be. Spells going to be an incorrect spelling of no regrets, designed by who wasn't Marilyn Manson? Yeah, yeah, I was Marilyn. Answer. Huh. Enjoy that, all right, buddy. Think. Oh yeah, I think I wouldn't be in trouble like what happened over the pest after last night. You know, I'm still a little worried about that. But lastly, for another podcast, will will tell the story of last night another time. By the way, I did change my AC filters today. You're guilty in it. Yeah, since I told you you needed to change yours. There's history there for our listeners. Troy is really good at pointing out one. I need to change my AC filters. Anyway. Thanks for the call and once again, thanks for thanks for all the recording stuff. So enjoy your evening, all right. Thank you very much. Starting to see you and they're you. Pretty good story.
