Thanks IRVofNorth and VeganJoe! I'm working hard and will put my best foot forward out there
RC and Tasha; love you guys, best training buds EVER. Perhaps we can get that workout in late tonight RC? I may be getting out very late maybe not. I'll know in an hour or so.
Npx, i'll get a vid of some deep squats both parallel and below parallel, don't you worry. It's all good.
OK... So wherre do i BEGIN!?!?!?!!?
Scariest moment of my entire life as well as Dani's last night. We live in your typical and literal white picket fence block and a very long one at that with the Manson family next to us it seems. They've done sketchy things in the past but last night blew our minds.
We were both exhausted from a long week and lack of sleep and passed out at 11:00pm. Joey barks and wakes Dani up, Dani wakes me up and I hear SCREAMING and BANGING and it feels like its in the house. I open my eyes it's pitch black; I look at the alarm clock, it's 2:42am.... Something is seriously wrong.
I walk out of the bedroom wondering what I am going to walk into, nothing to protect me around me yet, and I hear it getting louder like someone is 2 feet away fropm me. I flick the light on in the kitchen and I hear the whole wall being bashed on. I stare out the window and see nothing; look a little close and there is a young 21yr old kid shirtless and COVERED
from head to toe with an eye completely shut and his face was bashed in and then some. He just kept banging on our window yelling PLEASE PLEASE JUST LET ME IN, HELP ME OUT BRO PLEASE and repeated that over and over again. I asked what was wrong, he wouldn't say anything but repeat that same sentence over and over again.
It looked like something straight out of the worst gooriest horror movie you've seen right in front of your face in real life. My voice screamed at him to wait there in panic and fear. There was no way I was letting this guy in even though I wanted to assist him. I didn't know what his story was and for all I knew opening the door could have put our lives in serious jeporday. I told him i was calling 911; called them and 5-10 min later the cops came out and an ambulance. As I was on the phone waiting, the kid looks at me and keeps falling on the floor and then getting back up looking like he is about to drop dead right then and there. Gets up and says ok, i'll be next door bro.......... WHAT?!?!?!?!?!!?!?
We see him walk around the house to the front and disappear in the house directly adjacent to us. Cop comes in our house and says he knows this family and they have many issues and he'll be back to explain and talk to us. 15 min later he knocks on the door and scares the crap out of us again as it's hard to see out our windows at night. The cop comes in and explains.
The kid was apparently sleeping with his cousin's girlfriend and the cousin got mad and used a gun to try and beat him to death. The father hit the cousin over the head with his shotgun and told him to get. Somehow both parent let the kid get out of the house while who knows where the attacker was and bother us in the middle of the night, scaring the ever loving bageeezus out of both of us. He explained that the assailant was a convicted felon and that means he wasn't allowed to touch a gun and that they were going to arrest him. The house next door throughout this whole ordeal never ever called 911 or the cops as it seems they have much problem with the law and didn't want further. He also told us to wash the blood away from the back of our house and not to touch it because he knows where that family has been and he wouldn't go anywhere near that blood. GREAT. So now we're petrified; it's 3:30am and we cannot even move; feeling like prisoners in our own house. No one to call, scariest moment in our lives. Dani thanks me for protecting her and he sit and discuss how it's going to be hard to sleep for a bit without fear or getting that image out of our head of that kid. Cop gave us his cell phone and promised to get in touch with us and let us know what's going on which is good....
I insisted that we leave and drive away and not come back until the sun rises which is what we did. Drive for 2 hours and then hang out at a local starbucks for the next 2 hours until daylight. WHAT A DISASTER!!!!!! Never in my life. Speechless on the whole thing quite fankly.
I spoke to my father over the phone about it. He asked if I wanted him to mail me a gun. LOL I said no thanks, that's not exactly legal and we're not the type to feel comfy having a gun in the house. He said well then get a golf club and a bat, preferably aluminum and aim straight for the head or the knees. Thanks dad, lol. Good ole brooklyn mentality. gotta love it. He's absolutely right though and I am going to get those things and they will be by my side every night while I sleep for awhile just in case. Especially with the neighbors that we have.
I really hope Dani is going to be okay, she is pretty shook up. I'm really shook up myself. We will probably be hanging out late tonight with Robert and Tasha and then head back home while he tails us so we feel a bit safer. And hopefully leanr how to fall asleep without having panic attacks going forward that something else life threatening and completely insane is going to happen right around our house...
Needless to say, no workout yet today and hopefuly later tonight. Been a little tryin the last couple of days to get training accomplished. Need to get back at it.
Thanks for listening............................
Where do you get your protein?
But as long as people stay away from our cooler bags with our meals and not ask silly questions, we're all pretty tame
