->''"Therefore, since brevity is ->'''Luis:''' ''Okay. I was at a wine tasting with my cousin Ernesto. Which was mainly reds, and you know I don't like reds, man. But there was a rose that saved the soul day. It was delightful. And then he tells me about this girl, Emily, that we used to kick it with. It was actually the first pair of wit, boobs I ever touched. So, uh, he tells me that she's working as a housekeeper now, right? And she's dating this dude, Carlos, who's a shot caller from across the bay. And she tells him about the dude that she's cleaning for. Right? That he's like this big-shot CEO, that is all retired now, but he's loaded.

This guy's got a big-ass safe just sitting in the basement, just chilling." Of course Ernesto comes to me because he knows I will got mad thieving skills. Of course, I ask him... "Did Emily tell Carlos to tell you to get to me what kind of safe it was?" And he says, "Nah, dawg. All she said is that it's super-legit and whatever's in it it's gotta be brief.good."''
