the midwestern way
but when we went on a late night walk last night it was amazing how many places she thought were dangerous
when i suggested we cross the busy street over to the other neighborhood she was all
oh no no no no, not even in the daytime.
i asked why
she said once your niece went there to scout out some garage sales. one said everything a dollar each.
the niece, 10 yrs old, said nothing was even worth a dollar.
those people dont even tie up their dogs, i was told.
so we walked over by an elementary school. i said look at all these swings for babies.
my mom said, the regular swings are over there. so i said lets walk there.
she said, oh no, they sell drugs over there.
i was all, omg i could use some drugs right now!
but mom ignored me.
people ignore me a lot, ive started to notice.
and they pay attention to the lamest boringist yawners.
maybe that happens to you too.
