While working, I proceeded to hit myself and run into many things, which produced about three more bruises and one on my head. After leaving work, I ran errands and proceeded to fall on the way into one store. Now the definition of "fall" can be interpreted so many ways.

I am very proud of my brother. I only wish my brother the nest and hope he always remembers that God loves him and his family loves…
