Zimbini izizathu zalento; bendisenza ezinye izinto kulenyanga iphelileyo kwaye bekungekho lula ukuhlala phantsi ndifunde. Isizathu sesibini yinto yokuba le ncwadi ibhalwe ngendlela apho kungekho lula uvele ulahleke kuyo; kuthatha imizuzu emininzi ukuvela ikubambe. Iqale phezulu kwaye nasekugqibeleni imnandi ngeyona ndlela. Ingxaki, kodwa, yinto yokuba ubhali uthatha ixesha elininzi ekuthetheni nge-Little Rascals kunye nezinye izinto. Ndiyaqonda ukuba mhlawumbi abemi baseMelika kunye nabantu abayaziyo lanqubo abazobanagxaki. Nam, mhlawumbi bendizozithanda ezandawo ukuba bendingabo - kodwa ke zange ndayibukela lanqubo kwaye andiyazi nokuba injani i-Compton.
