So I didn’t have any so I asked Glacier, can I borrow some of his, so he said, ‘Yeah,’ so I put it in my hands and I’m talking to Glacier. I thought it rub it off. And it smelled I said ‘Ben it smells like strawberry, like fruit.’ He said ‘Yeah, it’s the fruit [scent].’ I said, ‘Man. Listen, we’re going into the ring with these guys who look like they eat fruit. They gonna eat us alive.’
