Personal Quotes (1)

One of my most favourite shows was "Wild About Hammer" and I was tied to a chair and gagged and had to try and fight being tied to a chair and you know it was just fun. Its fun to do silly things. Its fun to roll around on the floor and get dirty. In everyday life you never get to do that. You wake up and you make coffee and you go to the bank and you do all that stuff and you don't get to be tied to a chair and try to kick somebody while your still tied to it. Its fun. It makes me happy.
