And from what I understand that Clinton the board of education decision this was the school's decision. So just the principal's decision to say I'm sorry Amy you cannot come and escort your daughter. I wondered if it was about. And I'm not clear that unedited state ex father seeing year well our I am a father figure and and you know it and I know a lot of people are saying he can't be you're not in Maine and now you can. You you do now. Like I drew that in industry in your situation and I'll demeanor dot meet I got lucky day.

We didn't always get to go to the father daughter dances I turned out just fine. Well I mean I'm I'm glad she turned out there aren't. But I mean personally my experience and my daughter. Too cruel steps for their little girl. And she's always ask me it's didn't try to died several several lights turned it. She doesn't understand. Why are. So easy section to the roar like she did it has a debt. Can explain it to Cheryl what happened to lush like right now I'm really not ready to go that way with our. Certain things happened.
