Bruce and I spent a lot of time together at one point in time of our teen years. We had girlfriends that were close friends. We both got into the Bruce Lee movies and were crazy about them! I never knew when Bruce was going to jump out from around a corner at me screaming like Bruce Lee and hands flying around! Lol!
