When he did that, the sparring got live. And when it got live, we went at it to try to take each other's head off. But, I got the best in the end of him and I hit him with a shot to the nose. As he covered up, I hit him to the body that dropped him. A technical knockout if you want to call it. He got humbled that day, d read news >>

Let's posit a very common scenario. My kitchen sink is broken. I don't know how to fix it, so I call a plumber. On the phone, he or she collects information about the nature of the problem, my address and other essential items to determine if and how they can help me. They decide they can and I formally request their services. When they arrive, they do so in their own car wearing their own clothes. I do not tell them how to perform the job, only what I need done. They give me a rough estimate of read news >>
