I pointed to Dave. "You're my best friend. What's my name?"
"Wade. You're creeping me out, dude."
"You want to be creeped out? Listen up. My name isn't Wade. I'm Kip McFarland. I went to school on a mental ward for violent juvenile offenders. I was the youngest and guilty of the most violent crime the Anchorage unit ever had. I was there for almost five years."
"You're making this up," Brett said. "And it's not funny."
