Until a friend of mine, it occurs to him to ask her a demonstration of karate. In the first attempts, Betsy fails in her demonstration my friend defended quite well. THAT face that indicated that everything was going to end badly. Try to stop the demonstration, no one will listen Fracture of the nose and aggravated jaw dislocation was the diagnosis the doctor gave me about the condition of my friend.
The birthday party was suspended. We all ended up in a hospital, again. It sounds like Betsy is a criminal. I used to do a lot of martial arts but that is not a license to go around acting like a violent thug! Haha no my friend, It's ALL fiction.
I always try to make humor with crazy situations. If I get a smile, I'm happy. I've done Karate for a while, and I know about the respect and discipline that those who practice it do. I know that most martial arts promote good behavior and not use these as a means of attack. Thanks for commenting and apologizing if my English is not very good.
But it's not my original language. You're English is brilliant lol. Agreed martial arts normally paradoxically teach avoiding violence and humility. Haha you know that many times some people ask me if it is real. I would like to know why they think like that. Anyway, I'm putting together a real story with personal photos. There you will see me drunk and happy. As young people we do so many crazy things!
My best friend Samuel, attentive to what happened to me, invites me to dinner at his house to introduce me to a friend of his wife Being curious, I asked Samuel about this young lady I was going to meet. And tells me that: Specifically, in the 4th date.
I invite her to dinner at my house. I froze, I did not understand what was happening. I try to reassure her and in a defense maneuver she grabs my arm, turns around and throws me to the ground. Here I thought, bye bye, tomorrow I appear in every newspaper as the man killed in a romantic evening. The night ended with a tense atmosphere. I took it as just an unfortunate fact and thought it was not going to happen again. On the fifth date, I invite her to have a Sunday lunch at my parents' house. Everything was normal, but I did not take into account a small detail, my uncle Alfred.
My uncle ended up in the hospital, Betsy had a fit of rage and ended up breaking his head with a knee. Every time I went out with her, I started to take preventive measures. Since I did not know how I could end each night In date number 9, I had no choice but to invite her to my best friend's birthday. Betsy jumped and propelled by a wall she applied a tremendous kick to my friend. I think that with my story, it has been demonstrated in the situation that I am. For this, I wanted to ask you. If you know anyone who can receive me in Yemen. I already take the ticket and in 2 days I'll travel to Ukraine.
