The Boss says that that's the trubble with lotz of fellers - tryin' to fli B4 they reely kno' how to walk.
I ast the Boss wuzzent it a good thing for growin' yuths like me 2 B ambittious an' 2 aspire 2 grate things sutch as avvygators or Knapoleons ov finantz an' he sed that I had better Bgin aspirin' 2 walk faster if I wanted 2 hole my job.
