There was this guy a very long time ago who came down the stairs and called my name when he spotted me down there in the distance.
He yelled out 'Hey Gish' in a gruffy and tough guy way.
When I noticed that he held out his hand in welcome, I reacted full of hope by reaching out to give him the well-deserved and friendly handshake.
When my metacarpals began to creak, my tendons were ready to snap and the pain became almost unbearable, that's when I knew for sure that this first meeting would lead to a long-lasting and valuable friendship.
Thanks alot, Baum.
