It's odd that there's somebody that stat accomplished at sixteen. That's crazy. I was when I was sixteen. I was where I don't know what it was. I was like a young Cornelius Vanderbilt's good. I was hustling. I would go out. And I would I grew up in New York. So in the fall, I would rake leaves, and they I would have people pay me by the bag, and I'm really fifty cents a bag, but then I would take the bags, and I would put like couple of handfuls leaves that I blow it up with air.

I mean that was hustling like you or I had a I had a job cleaning the church on Saturday nights. For instance. Collection money joke just to set up the chairs and everything like that for Sunday school and everything the next morning. You know what? Bop, and all the all the floor. I mean, that's the catch.

Here's what I get like every other day. I'll be walking down the street, and then somebody will walk towards me. And they'll look at me, and they'll squint and then they'll just look away and shake their head. That's it. So do they recognize you from something, but can't place it or do? They know who you are.
