RPP would like to add -
"You forgot to mention the extremely large knife he was holding in one hand less than a foot from my face and a shot of tequila in the other when declaring his need to get drunker before lighting them off. You also forgot to mention the $5,ooo in the file cabinet. shhhhhh...."
Why a guy tells complete strangers (ok we were friends of a friend, but still), that he's got five grand in his file cabinet, is beyond me. But funnier was the REASON it was there, to stand as bail money if he got arrested later! Presumably he thought he might be nabbed for the fireworks. The guy was mad as a hatter. The knife she's referring to was only a kitchen implement, and he was cooking (those ground steak empañadas were truly one of the best items of food I have ever tasted - the dough was like 600 thread count pillows), but the wild manner in which he wielded, well...
Anyway, the mad cash gave rise to fantastical plots of scheming. I mean, who gets that bargain basement bail price, anyway? But we are good girls.
