Andy ran his car across the basement floor and crashed, despite my warnings. He fell and split his lip open and it bled pretty heavily.

After the screaming and bleeding subsided, he came back to the basement and began to run his car again, at full speed.

I mumbled, "Guess you didn't learn your lesson, did you?"

He asked, "What lesson?"

echoes of me

Andy got into a verbal scuffle with an older kid today.

He told me he said, "I don't think you should have your words all up in my grill!"
