I have known Freds for over 5 years now. He's my pal.
I take you to be a better judge of character than that. Freds is one of the most closed-minded people I've ever seen. The guy literally, seriously said he knew everything he needed to know about an entire state because of what someone who drove through it once told him. Intelligent people don't say such things.
I'd have had to ask them if the breakfast would kill the HIV virus I was wallowing in while I slept (or tried to).
It was like the horse head scene in The Godfather, because we got in really late and just went to bed. The blood was in the folds of the sheets and we didn't see it. Then in the morning, we saw it and had been sleeping in it all night.
