- It was my first rodeo. So when I'm looking back at everything, I'm thinking, I just can't believe that they've done it before and my experience was robbed. But then I just think to myself, they're wonderful people. They [INAUDIBLE] don't want to go back to lockdown and isolation where their worlds were turned upside down also.
