Another time, me and a young fella went to see some girls, and they put us upstairs to stay all night. And they had a kind of an old shed of a thing over their porch where they cooked in the summertime. Next morning, we woke up and we could hear the dishes rattling down there, and they was fixin' for breakfast, and I told the other young fella that I'd crawl out of the window and out on the . . . and peep over and see if breakfast was about ready. When I went to peep over, the plank give away and I fell right down in the middle of the table, and I run away without my pants.
