It was about 10 am when my phone rang, and I jumped up in shock as the noise broke the cold morning silence. It's always a bad sign when the phone rings so early in the morning, and I knew it had to be bad. In a groggy biker style grumble, I said..."This better be good because if it ain't, someone is gonna get well and truly head stomped!" One thing with me is that I never get up early like all the squares with regular jobs because I spend all night working on my hog and hanging with my bro's. The voice on the other end let out a sigh and said..."If I have told you once I have told you a million times Dean..." This got me mad instantly, and I interrupted with..."My name is not Dean anymore! It's Hogbro69 now, and that's what everyone will call me unless they want to get their face smashed in!" There was a moments silence until it was broken again with "Well I just wanted to tell you that..." There was no use in trying to backtrack, I was angry, "No! You are not going to tell me anything! Nobody tells me how to live! I live by my rules and my rules only, and if you don't like it I will come over there and karate chop the shit out of your neck and face and body slam your legs into a workbench and then start wailing on your upper torso with a genuine Harley 8 fin cam cover that only fits certain engines like Panheads, Knuckleheads, and early Shovelheads, you got that bozo?!!!" The voice didn't wait to respond this time..." But it's street sweeping today, so you have to move your Prius otherwise you will get a ticket." I suddenly remembered...."Oh, it is? Wow, that week went so fast! Ok, thanks, Mum I'll move it right now!"
