We are. You know, in one of the biggest reason he taught me is is to just be happy. You know, like his whole life was you know, a dog's whole life. They revolve around. You can have a worst day you get home in the dogs. Like, I don't know what happened with your day. I'm having to see you. That's right. You come home. You're happy the happiest man.

And you don't get dogs who heckle you like some in the audience, right? Oh, mark. Yes. Dog one time though. So really, I'm sorry to hear that tread lightly. How do you handle hecklers? I mean, it's it's gotta be hard because it's a late night and people might be a little toasted. What do you do a little toasted? Yeah. Well, my personality I'm like, no superlight happy on stage. But I just talk about. I just talked about nice where it had just have fun badge. As usually usually they're not super, meaning they're just super loud. And they say things like I'll be on stage.
