And we're back. May the fourth be with you. Was it may fourth? Well, it will be the day that we release this episode. It's gonna be may fourth. So many may jokes. I know it's so good, though I feel like a lot of people have forgotten about the May jokes this year, seeing him on facebook or because of coronavirus. I think people don't realize it's me yet. Probably everyone's like in this funk. That is two thousand and twenty and it's throwing everything off. Like birthday's good luck having a birthday party. Birthdays are kind of the worst right now, especially for kids. Her daughter just turned fourteen and she, like also wants to do hang out with her kids or kids her friends. Wait a second, wait a minute, wait minute. Are Their friends and she can't really because everyone's quarantining. So was the only option is to do a drive by. The good cat people do drive by, the good kind of drive by, like family or friends, drives by and honks and that's about it. Yeah, she didn't really want to do that, so we decided to she and I did like a mom and daughter trip up north where it's a little cooler and went hiking and it was actually really, really fun. We had a great time, but yeah, it's kind of a bummer. You're just really limited in what you can do. You know, speaking of things that you have to adapt to because of coronavirus, we got a comment on our, I think it was our instagram feed about the this idea of how to play games virtually. So what they're doing is they're taking Jack Box TV, which were big fans of and Love Jack Box. That's fun, and they're firing it up on a computer with a zoom. She have people log into the zoom all remotely. They can see the code. You can play. Everyone's on the zoom and you can play Jackbox. Oh, that's really fun. Yeah, I try that. Yeah, we can do quiddler and fibbidge. Yeah, and not quitler fibbidge and quip quip lash. Yeah, that's what I was finding it as only if only we had friends that we could play games with. Ye, all right, show we start the interview. Yeah, let's do it. Go ahead and explain who we've got on today. So I interviewed our good friend Taya Greaves. She started a nonprofit with her husband and her family and she tells us a little bit about it. Yeah, and something about Taya, and I hope this doesn't embarrass her too much. I doubted if. She's not the type to be embarrassed. Everyone's got that friend who is a little bit crazy, but the right kind of crazy, the right kind, the right kind of fun, kind of seriously, teya is a right. She's so much fun to be around and people flocked to her because she's just got such energy and enthusiasm to life. And her husband's not bad either. Yeah, now she's really yeah, he's fun too, but she's really he's gonna love that. And she the best is she just like doesn't care, like she's going to be her doesn't care. Anybody thinks she is the ultimate honey badger. She's she is a honey badger. Oh what is that? A MOUSE? Rose, honey bad you don't care. Ty is the honey badger. Yes, she is. It's good. So, yeah, let's hear the interview. All right, all right, tell Ya. Welcome to the PODCAST. Hello, hello, how's it going? I'm doing great. I'm just sitting in a van outside my neighbor's house. Right. Why are you in a van? Well, we could either be in the van or in the house, and that's too unpretty unpredictable. So, yeah, you never know when the kids are going to just be really loud. Yeah, I'M gonna hide in the van. It's a good place. It's a second home for me, so sleep there sometimes if I'm too noisy inside. Oh Yeah, yeah, you know, it's a pandemic. So it's like the van is the next choice, exactly. It's the escape the escape pod. Yeah, all right, I'm going to ask you an awkwardly personal question to start us off green. Here's what I want to know. If you could go back in time and Change One decision you've made,...

...what would it be? Okay, so I think about this quite a bit. I made a big mistake majoring in someone convinced me that I should major in sociology, which I don't quite know. I mean, I don't think I knew about that major when I decided I was got a major in it. So if I could go back, I think I would change my major. Basically, I would would want to do something that was a marketable skill and I think I would have like to work in like a like a crime scene, like some sort of like a like a detective. I think I'd like to be that? Yeah, you'd be an excellent detective. Or Yeah, I thought about crime, about that, or even maybe working in a morgue would be really cool, just certain related to death and murder. Yeah, I feel like I. Yeah, I feel like that's my goto skill. I have the same regret. Actually, I my major was European studies. Don't talk about this. The reason of the reason I chose it as you were required to study abroad. You're required to like pick a part of the world and go and study there, and I that sounded great. So that's what you're like, that's my out. Oh, that's kind of a weird idea exactly, but it ended up being not really marketable. No, mine, I think. I think I chose mine because it was like the least amount of credits. Yes, to graduate, which is like so sad. Why didn't I like life? Why didn't I have accouncil? That was like that's a bad idea. I think about this all the time. No one ever said, like what are you gonna do with that? Like I have never even thought about it. Like what was wrong with me back then? I don't we're just going to college because that's what you should do, and not because we were yeah, we did. We weren't really. We didn't have a lot of foresight. There no name. We have that in common. Yeah, that was a bad, bad one. Okay, so I'm going to make some assumptions about you, things that I don't are already know. I'm going to guess that your first job was school bust driver. I know you were a school bus driver. Was that your first job? Maybe that was not my first job, but it was my favorite job that I've had, because you would need to be a little older. How old you have to be to be a schoolbust driver? Oh, you have to be twenty one. Okay. Do you probably had had several jobs already by then? Oh Yes, God dude. I grew up poor, so I worked at the grocery store, bagging groceries at Lucky's grocery store and palm desert. So I work that job. How old were you when you started that job? I was sixteen, okay. And then I also worked on the weekends at a car dealership. So my day good friend Mike Hook me up with his dad owned this car dealership and I would I ran the switchboard, so I would transfer all the call so I did those two jobs, good jobs for kids, are weird. My weird jobs, I mean I sing at a ranch. I was like in wranglers, singing at a dinner show when I was in college. Like I've had weird jobs. Nice. Yeah, I'm weird, weird person. Weird ones too, but you know, I didn't realize kids can actually work at fourteen. ADDIE is about to turn fourteen and she she wants to work right away. So she's looking up like some fast food restaurants and grocery stores kit bagging. They go, yeah, fourteen, that's so young. I feel like, like, give it a couple of years. You have your whole life to be working. Have Fun. I Know Maya just said she you know, she's like I just need...

...to get a job on like how are you going to like if you're working at I'm like, just work at school, like that will benefit use him. I mean, I get it. It's a good skill to be able to work, but I just feel like these kids are so like they're so busy already. I'm like how that? I mean, I don't know, to each their own, but I know I get they're excited to earn money, but I don't think they realize that they're going to be working their whole life. Enjoy this time when you don't have to do like, Oh yeah, okay, high school. Celebrity crush. Oh, let me think here. I'm going to say your celebrity crush was Charles on Charles and charge who close? Yeah, kind of clothes. I had a huge crush on Luke Perry. Oh, okay, and I know too, Wheolo Perry. Yes, and actually I was such an like a Weirdo about I was very strange as a child, if you can imagine that. But Anyway, I put together this like thousand piece puzzle of Luke Perry's face and then I glued it, like, I put the puzzle glue on it and I took the puzzle and hung it up on my wall and my room. Amazing that. Not even a poster, a puzzle, and I think I even like recently, was like wonder if they have any of these like like celebrity like just random giant puzzles of like random people's faces that you can put I mean it was huge and I glued that, you know, down, let it dry and then hung that crap up on my wall. Like I don't love it. Anyway, Luke Pere, I was a huge n I know, to a o Fan, huge. I mean who was right? Okay, I want to know the last TV show you watched, like last night or this morning. I was Oh, yeah, I was gonna guess and I would have gotten that right. I was gonna say, Oh, our have a little insight info, as James Texted as a picture. That's a great show. It's very dark. I'm not sure who I would recommend it to, but we recommend it to you guys for sure. Anyone that I would want to like be friends with, I'd recommend it to. We're also watching Shit's creek, which is a really good like. So we have a funny show and a dark show at all times. That's what we did. Like you're watching those two at the same time and depending on the mood, we'd watch one or the other. Yeah, exactly. Yeah, I'm excited for the final season. I haven't seen it yet. It's going to be good. Is that when you're watching or you cut up, you're watching the final season if Shit's creek? No, no, no, no, I started late, so I'm only on season three. Okay, it's a good one. You have a lot to look forward to. So, okay, last one. Your favorite vacation? I'm gonna Guess Jamaica. Maybe. I know you went there. Love Jamaica, but that was not my favorite. I think my favorite vacation I've ever taken. Wait, kind of my Arta with us. I mean we'll talk about that later. It's going to be awkward now. And that's not your favorite, like I'm no, actually, that was a close second. Getting probably Egypt. Oh, it's hard to top Egypt. Part of my Arta does not top Egypt, no matter who you're. Well, because it was so it was just so surreal that I was there and see everything and it was honestly like it was probably the cheapest vacation I've ever taken and also like the coolest. I mean denial, the Pyramids, like...

...it you cannot get. How do you talk that? Now? You don't. You can't. Like. It's just like it's Egypt and it's kind of like scary. So it's dangerous and you're so it's right up your alley. You're like, yes, gonna be a little dangerous. My life needs to be at risk at least four times for it to be a really good trip. Yeah, actually, when we were flying in. It was Christmas and when we had landed they came out with the warning like you should not travel to Egypt, and I was like too late, like Oh, this is gonna be fun. Well, yeah, already here, so that's probably it. Yeah, that's my favorite. Okay, so tell us a little bit about yourself for anyone listening who doesn't know you. Where do you live? How many kids do you have? All right, so we live in Scottsdale. We've been there. My Gosh, how long now, abbreally, like Lo since you guys were there, like we met you guys when you were first married, which that was like fifteen years ago, twenty years ago, something like fifteen years ago. And we move we just like decided to move here. We didn't have any family here or anything, but we just picked here because it was warm and literally just moved here. And James, you know, is works in real estate, so he was doing that and yeah, he's you know, we're we've been here for a while and we have three daughters. Our daughters are twelve, fourteen and Maya just turned seventeen. So driving right, how's that going? She's driving. Well, at first, yeah, very scary, but we put her better and better. We put her in the, you know, the very intense driving school. The you know, checks all the boxes and that was probably really good idea. But so it's good now because she drives and she drives everyone else around. So that's been a game changer in our lives. My driving. I was talking to a friend about the intense driving courses because part of me is like I can do that, I can just be in a car and help, but I don't. I don't know that I could force them to like moved on to the freeway at high speeds and all this, like I would be. It's like it's like teaching your kids how to play the piano, like it's not going to happen. It's like not a job. I can know. I tried that also about it. Yeah, like you're going to end up yelling and screaming, like it's just not it's going to ruin your relationship. Let someone else do it, let somebody else tell what they're doing wrong. Yep, totally. But so we're here and we gosh, we just live busy lives. You know, I'm always running around. I am I am a sub institute teacher. Sometimes I just kind of work at my own schedule. And James runs two businesses, maybe three, I don't know. He could have secret businesses that I don't know about. Not put that past him. Multiple secret businesses, lots of secret endeavors. And we yeah, we want to talk about the nonprofit that you started. We should get James on here as well to talk about his multiple secret businesses. would be a whole other hour, you know right, we'll have that be separate episode. So, yeah, you're nonprofit. Tell US briefly, like what if it called? You know what it what do you do? Okay, so the name is called junior hero and the basic, you know, premise of the the nonprofit is kids. It's basically a service recognition program for elementary school kids. So kids do service, they complete their you know, the targeted hours for their grade and once they complete it they get recognized from the principle and from the school and they are in a Tshirt and a prize. And you know, the program like every year it starts over again and there's a new...

...t shirt and new prize. So the basic the basis of it is just to teach kids how to serve in their community and at school and and you know, because there's there are a lot of academic, you know, award programs, but no programs really that recognize kids for being good humans. So and I like in general it's leader. It's like junior high high school where they start being pushed a little more to do that. Elementary, sure not as much as that's. Well, how many schools are you in? So I'm in twenty schools right now and, you know, looking to expand. I I'm mainly trying to get schools in my district. All the schools in my district was my goal. It's been really hard, like just to get in to talk about the program just to meet the Prince, because you know, when you have a program that's free and you're trying to say hey, this is free, people don't understand that, like there's like some noficious yeah, yeah, sure it is. What's what's really free? What's the catch? Only free. But one awesome thing is I've all the schools that I've been to, I've never had us, you know, once I get that initial meeting with the principle, I've never had them turn me down, so I can't imagine they would. It's a fantastic idea everyone. Yeah, and I've never had a school quit. So Um, you know, it is awesome. It's just the whole process of getting anything into an elementary school. It's really hard. Yes, definitely. How long have you been doing this? When did you start? So actually, how it started as interesting. I was in so I was at my kids elementary school in North Ranch and I heard them in, you know, I was kind of easstropping, eavesdropping over the counter, and they were talking about, you know, my one of my friends, Karen Brown, was saying she wanted to do a service program at the school but shouldn't have anybody to run it. So I kind of butted in and I was like hey, that's something that I could do. So I believe you did that. That seems so unlike your personality. So I was like, I can do that, I can get behind this. Like just don't put me on the Dance Committee, you know, like but so that's what it started and actually I took that from that moment. I took the program and I morphed it into you know, because it's a long history. I I I ran the program at the school for a year, but there was a lot wrong with it and so I took the program, I completely tweaked it. I realized that, you know, the program could be. You so useful and so positive at these other schools that I was substitute teaching at, where they did not have, you know, these title one schools, where they didn't have much of anything, and I thought, CAS, I wish I could bring the program over to this school that I was subbing at, and that's kind of how it started, this idea of, you know, we need to do something more and not just have this run at my, you know, our kids school, but it was everywhere. So at what point did you actually organize the it's a one, c three, right, yeah, it's a five one c three, and I love the program because, first of all, it's free, like we don't pay ourselves or anyone that helps with it, no employees at all. Well, our family is on the board, which, okay, also one of the coolest things I think we've done with it is, you know, from the beginning we said, you know, we set our family down and we just said look, you know, we talked, we had a conversation...

...with our family about, you know, what we wanted to do, like what it you know, we were talking with their kids about. What do you want to be known for, you know, or what do you want to you know? We just had, you know, we have these weird conversations on the white board talking about, you know, who wants to own a tiger? Okay, and right here. So so we decided we want to be known for like, we want to give without like we don't want fancy things. We don't want that's not doesn't really do much for us. But mainly most of our joys come from like helping other people. So, you know, we decided as a family and our whole families on the board, which is actually been fantastic because when I go and pitch our program at the school, my kids come most of the time and and a few times they've actually hitched it on their own, which is, I think, been amazing, because they're involved with it. Yes, well, such a great experience for them and to really take ownership like that. That's awesome really. So, you know, I on the you know, for it being a Bible ones, you know, see three. It's like our whole program is based on serving without, you know, in an altruistic way. So it's like how would I why would I pay myself or pay anybody out. It should be. It would violate my bound the foundation of what my Brokera the you know, the guts of my program well, so how how are you able to get funding? You have donors? No. So right now it's just we've just donated all the money to the program and the program can run. You know, it's it could run for that another five to ten years without any more donations. You know, hopefully I'll get more school so that's another question that I'm kind of struggling with this. Do I want to go huge with it, or do I want to keep it too? That's what I'm, you know, going through right now. But well, and that's probably the thing, if you do scale it, then at some point you would need to have paid employees to manage it. At some point you wouldn't be able to do it all yourself. Yeah, and I've tried, you know, this year I since I met twenty schools. Now I actually have a location now where I keep on my t shirt. So that's the other part of it is every year there's a new t shirt and a new prize, which is awesome because we run a promotional products company, so we're able to get those shirts and prizes for a great price. So brand makers makes all of the t shirts and okay, and they're able to give you a good price because that's James this company. That's right, totally. So it was also a great you know, it's really interesting how puzzle piece is kind of things just fit together, you know, where that would be a huge expense for a lot of people. That's not for us, because that's our business and we can make you know. So we kind of tied service into we have this promotional products business. It just worked for us, you know. Yeah, definitely. So, anyway, so I'm curious. Do you feel like you were always interested in entrepreneurship, like you were sort of destined to start a business? James clearly is, and we'll talk to him. No, okay, yeah, so this is what really destinating I have. I don't have those type of skills, like I'm not the one who wrote the business plan. You know, I don't. I don't. My brain doesn't work in a systematic sort of way. I'm like organized chaos with the passion, like I'll go and serve all day long, help all day long, but you want me to write a business plan. I mean that is just I'm out. I don't do numbers, I don't do spreadsheets. It's...

...really so it's interesting because I feel like I'm one part of the business and he's another. Now I have had to, you know, get skills and those areas and I've learned, you know, you have to be organized, we have to keep track of your things, but that whole business side of it I had. He really does a lot of that. That is not much. That my strength, but it's been interesting because I realized that just because I haven't had those skills doesn't mean, you know, I think a lot of times women feel like, you know, I can't do that because you don't have the skill. Well, you can do it. You know, a lot of these learn those skills. Yeah, there's a lot of things that like I had a lot of self doubt and I still do work through that every day because I part of me feels like, you know, you I can't do this, like this is too much, you know, or it's too difficult, or how how am I going to sound like I'm going to pitch this? And it's interesting because I've made those weaker parts of me stronger and I've realized I can't you really can do these things that you want to do. You know, that's actually an interesting thing to think about, because clearly you had the aptitude and the skill, but there was something about either our culture or the way we're raised that I kind of felt the same way. I'm like, Oh, I'm just not good at that'd be really difficult. I'm not going to and you know some people do feel that way, some don't, whether the skills are actually there or not, or at least the potential for having those skills right. Yes, and what I realized is if you have a like a like a real passion for something, you can always make it work like that, like if you didn't have the passion, like if I didn't have this passion about helping other people and doing never would have happened. It would have happened. But the business part of it, you know, I just kind of really rallied with James and we kind of work together and he helped me with the plan, and so it's you know, it's been a process and there have been a lot of like, you know, nerves, but I've gotten over it and I feel confident in what I'm pitching now, like this program. I know that it's changed ranged schools and the dynamic of like kindness and bullying, and so I feel like, Oh, you know, this is the real deal, like this is making a difference. So do you provide any framework for the service that the students do, or are they totally open to choose for themselves what they do? They can choose what they want. A lot of schools of actually so. I set up the program in the school. I do everything. I donate everything, including all of the log sheets that the kids grabbed at the right their hours on everything, t shirts, prizes, I said it. I go into the school, I set up the program a bulletin board in their school where the kids can you know, if they lose their log sheet, they can get it and there. Their service should just be anything that's not something that like. It can't be like a chore Or, You know, it's got a thing, anything that it will boton that is other centered, and a lot of schools have been. The teacher has been working with the kids in the classroom on this because because sometimes at home they don't have the support for that, and so they've adopted it. Teachers have loved getting their junior hero award all together as a class. That's been me or even in like special needs schools and, you know, alternative school so it's been. It kind of I give it to the school and say you make it work for your kids and I will support you and every way that I...

...can. And however that looks at might be different for each school and they figure it out. Yeah, it's really smart to do it that way, for sure. Yes, yes, what's some something that you hate about it? Like, what's one thing that you wish you could have someone else do? There anything? Oh boy, Um, all those things you have James Do. Right, if there's anything you really don't want to do, you're like here you go. Well, I have kind so, as you can imagine, I have twenty schools, so I am constantly running things to the schools. I take so if the school needs more shirts, I go and do it, like I go to the headquarters, get the supplies and take it. So I have kind of tweaked that where next year, you know, I'll have hours when they can come and pick up the supplies. That'll help a lot make it a little easier the managing part of it, because I some days I'm going, you know, somewhere and dropping things off tons, but it's not a lot of work during the year. It's mainly a lot of work right at the beginning of the school year when I set it up and, you know, bring them all their starter packs of shirts and prizes. So that's I'm kind of tweaking that. Yeah, anything that involves like a spreadsheet, I pass hard pass. James was like, I think you should go take a class and I'm like no, I don't. I love that. We captured that. My favorite is when you do James Voice that it's like I think you should, you should go and take a computer skills glass. MMM, no, not happen to me. I'm Sam old that I'm not doing that. Okay, so, as you know, our podcast is called accidental parenting. Yeah, we love to get a story. So I'm hoping you have something to share, either a win or a fail, either related to your business or just in general with parenting. What's something that's happened lately? I have that I have wins and fails every day. Okay, so a huge win. Okay, was when? So this, this this is blows my mind. So when when I went on a trip to Portafiarda, I could create trip. There's a fantastic wild adventure filled with tigers and baby tigers. Just kidding, just kidding, but also not leave, but also not kidding, depending if you are all for baby tigers are not exactly. I can leave all to my kid kids at home by themselves, like they all three could could, like they were home alone for three days, no day old. This is seventeen, like definitely old enough to you know, Fourteen and twelve, and I'm telling you, like it, it works. I feel like. That is I mean, I I've arrived and so, like, I mean, it's a heat. That was a huge parenting win, because I have a lot of friends who they're like, I could never leave my seventeen year old home with my fourteen year old. But Oh yeah, because it depends on kids personalities, for sure, and how respect they are. My kids really, really, really get along with each other, which is also a random thing, because I would fight with my siblings, but actually very rare. I feel like most siblings fight. So that is a huge parente UN yeah, so that was like a parenting when I mean parenting fail, it's like I fell on the daily. My biggest, my main fail as a parent is I am not a discipliner, like, I don't I'm not good with follow through discipline. So all,...

...let all sorts of things go. Like I'll be like yeah, like, I'm very much all right. Old, so much more work to follow through and to actually I don't like it. No, it's so much easier, like that's fine, whatever. James is always like, well, why didn't you punish them first thing, and I'm like, I don't believe in punishment. KIP, he's like, but now their behaviors atrocious. You're like yeah, well, so that that actually is probably my you know, they always say your biggest strengths are your biggest weaknesses. That's probably in that category. Like true, you've created this independence in them. They're so responsive. Yeah, independent, but also try and punish them now it's not going to happen. Well, I just don't want to. You know. It's kind of like like, you know, like their phones are supposed to be out on the countertop at night. Every night they put him out in the kitchen, you know, and if I ever see like one not on them, like Oh, she's probably it's interesting where some people are very much into discipline. I'm just it's not my skill. It's not my strong skill. Okay, so I don't want anybody. I don't want anybody telling me what I'm doing wrong. Right. So why should I tell my kids that they're doing wrong? It's actually a miracle that your kids have turned out so well. Maybe that's the secret. Never discipline and never follow through on anything you ask them. Let them be, they'll be good. Let him be. My mom never really disciplined us, really, and look how you turned out. You're looking a wild tiger. Okay, we're going to play game and I thought it would be fun. Since you're nonprofits called junior hero, we're going to ask each other Trivia questions about heroes. I have a folard for you. Did you prepare a few? Well, yeah, I mean, might not really Privya. Min are just like questions that I want to know your answers to. Oh, interesting minor trivia. So this is gonna be interested all. Okay, bring it on. Okay, so the first one is because add he's always talking about this actor who is the newest person to play spider man in the avengers movies and the new spider man movies. Do you know the name of this actor? Hold on, your kids probably now I feel like he's really popular with the young girls. Is He a Jonas brother? No, but that'd be amazing if you heard first names Tom Tom and Tom Holland. I don't know who that is. Oh Man, if you saw him, you'd recognize him. Is He is he hot? I mean he looks like twelve. So the answer is no. But kids ADDI's age. Think yes, I'm sure he's older. He's probably like twenty five, but he really looks twelve. Okay, well, okay, let's hear one of your questions. Okay, who would you rather kiss? Batman or thor? Like it like, like Chrit, like Chris, I don't even have to think about obviously, thor like. I don't even care which Batman you're talking about. Of the thousand Batman's. It's clearly looks like it looks like Cole. Yeah, that's true. You're right, and I don't know he's gonna like that. That's a good compliment and it's true, but there you prefer long hair, thor, long hair thor, and not yeah and and like fit thor, but I I know not, not Fatty Thorpe. I actually though I would pick thor too, but that doesn't mean that I want to kiss cold just telling you that live. I do love it. Yet it's not a trivial question. You're like, would you rather it? My next question for you is which Avenger was turned into a frog? And this must have been in the comic books, because I don't remember this happening in the advenger movies. I do remember this. Was it. Was it the as?...

Was it hulk? That's a good guess because he's Green, so you would think maybe he could be a frog. It was thor. No, in the comics. In the comics, I must be yeah, Oh, yeah, in one of low key's comical ways to get revenge, he turned thor into a frog at some point. I'm sure in comic books. That did not happen in the four movies. But the whole hulk is to me the most brightening. Really he I've had like legit nightmares really the hulk. Yes, I when I watched the movies. I get scared like that whole like giant. Okay, thing is yeah, it's I don't know, some of the older hulk movies he was terrifying. The new avengers he's just so lovable and huggable. He doesn't ever scare me, but in the older movies he was, he was much more frightening. Yeah, I'm not. I'm not a fan of that is he scares me. Yeah, okay, give me another question. Oh, I have one that you can guess. Okay, which actor who is also a superhero did I hang out with on my for my bridal shower when I was getting married? But who? I'm excited to know who this is. I had no idea. Why have we not talked about this? I don't know. I just thought of it. I didn't even prepare this one. Okay, let me think an actor that you might have known in Caliwaia. I hung out with him, hung out with this guy and he became a superhero. Oh, he's a he's okay, please be Christian Bale. Oh, I wish you know Robert Downey Jr. Oh my heck, are you serious? When did you hang out about your bridle shower? Yes, he asked me on phone because he he was in one limbo and I was in another and we met up at a Mexican restaurant. They're just randomly because the two limo drivers were brothers, and he was like yeah, he was out of his mind. Sure, and he, he, he actually asked if he could come to my wedding. Amazing, larious story. And that night he got you were living in California, right, busted. That night he got arrested. Yes, it was the night he got busted in Palm Springs with all the drugs.

Okay, yeah, my last question for you. Which member of the avengers used to be a ballerina? Gene Gray? Oh, that's a good question. Wasn't an avenger. She was like an Xmen, x man. Right, hold on, shoot, I'm stump. Super Girl. Oh, that's a good good guess. No, I think the superman super girl. Else are are they? Are they considered a vengers? I guess, because it was like no, because it's there. Batman. It's like Batman, Superman, which, wait, I'm not sure. Who is who it was also for? No, no, just kidding. That'd be amazing. If you had been a ballerina, I'd be like, Oh, black widow, she was a Russian Ballerina turned assassin. Oh, yes, I knew that. I actually didn't. Have you seen the black whatever movie yet?...

Yeah, which spider man movies? which is which is a better spider man? The Tom Holland the new ones? I think I don't really likely correct answer ISNA. Neither all spider man movies are lame, good point. The newer ones are better, though I would say haven't seen him. Yeah, so then, how can you say you're the ONLA is to judge? The only good thing about the original spider man with Toby McGuire was clousy Willem dafoe. He was good. He was amazing as the bad Guy Vanam. I don't even know what his name was yet an. He was the guy with the spider machine, spider legs, and his son was no idea. The Guy in twenty seven hours. What is that guy's name? James Franco? That's yea spider man previous episode.
