What brought -- over there yeah that was Shelby do we differ voice I was not prepared for that I had not as first thought I heard that. I thought southern accent Shelby. Might have been the best out of the zone. But close secular been stuck up mail shall we got that right there passion mispronouncing words in there which I do all the time which I appreciate kept it real -- wasn't. This wasn't soup -- and a -- like that. Organizations like you're -- Out. I helped you only get cancer -- Was editor at living is that it's really that was unreal look at that email.
