“This loan was a little odd. It’s the first time I’ve brought furniture up and such. Normally, I just stay here and don’t go back home.

“I recall Kenny Jackett at Orient telling me to avoid driving as much as possible in order to save my hamstrings. He has so much experience. You learn things from your loans, and that is one that I have taken on.”
