It's an honor fed I don't. Take lightly because I. I have the responsibility of. Not just. For reading about the food but. priding about the people and I think that's really the most. Critical part of the job but before we continue. People might be saying, wait what's going on and so you're very open about the fact that you stutter that is something that happens and so we might as well just say, Hey, it happens in your cool with. Saying Yeah and and moving on, right? Yes. I am thank you. Yes. It's part of my life and it's never stopped me from doing things like. Live TV or radio segments I. Love that. I.
