Why did I move here? I guess it was the weather.
Or the... Ah I don't know, that thing. That magic.
You see it in the movies.
I wanted to retire. From what I was doing, you know?
From that, that... line of work. Be a good guy for once, a family man.
So, I bought a big house. Came here, put my feet up, and thought I be a dad like all the other dads.
My kids, would be like the kids on TV.
We could play ball and sit in the sun.
But well, you know how it is.
