198 305.1078So I wouldn't say it was hurting, you know.307.0858 
200DCA_se1_ag1_m_07307.6822[Like] you cut your- you don't fall down or nothing. I just knew it was a bullet in my stomach that could kill me, you know.313.1609
202DCA_se1_ag1_m_07313.5503And that was the only thing, you know, I was thinking about.315.6585
