Well the other day my house was on fire and I had to retrieve 5 items that I would take. In the process of thinking about what I would have taken with me there was nothing that I would have gotten. Therefore there is nothing that I chose. But being that this is a different prompt I may as well choose some of my valuable items that I would get if it were really up to god to keep me alive in the process of doing so.
Things that I wish that I could have taken from the house fire would be all of my drawings. I have an ample amount of drawings that I have stored in a drawer. A lot of those drawings have meaning to them and were drawn for a reason so each one of them are very special to me and would be devastating if they were lost in a house fire.
Something else that I would grab from the fire is a pipe that my dad and his friend found when they were younger. It really doesn’t have meaning to me but its kind of like a gift from the past and it has a story behind it of how they acquired the pipe. Its a really nice pipe made of metal and wood. They was smoking weed from it. haha!
My last and very LAST thing that I wish I would have wanted to save is this plastic yellow bird that I got when I was in elementary school. I’m not too sure on how I got it but I do remember that I was in Head Start when it was given to me by a teacher? You might ask your self whats so special about the bird, well it was made to balance in its beak. So you can put the bird in the edged of a table or on top of a short people that is flat on top and it will balance. Its really cool and have it balancing on the corner of my computer tower right now.
Those are all the things I would have wished I saved in the house fire. But like I said the other day that If there is a fire than it was just meant to be because everything in life happens for a reason.
As I look out the window and survey my street I see the memories I made growing up as a child in Newburg. The block, Aral Drive, holds hundreds, if not thousands of memories that I created with friends that come and go. Its like a movie going on that only I can see. My friends and I throwing paper airplanes, playing hide and go seek, the police arresting a bunch of thugs and, the most vivid one I can remember, the scene where a girl was ran over and killed on the corner of Aral and Lagoona. I remember it all…
When I look out the window my memories come to life. To the ordinary eye you will see the small brick houses and the cracked roads and along with everything the little kids who roam the streets causing trouble. Through my eyes I can see the my gang causing havoc to the neighbors by hopping fences and ringing doorbells, running before someone opens the door.
Unlike any other ghetto neighborhood its not run down and looks fairly nice with the blooming flowers and big trees that look very beautiful during the summer time. Right now during winter my neighborhood looks cold and gloomy, but brings back good memories that I made during the winter with good friends I had as a kid. As life is, things come and go and nothing last forever and now here I am on the Inside Looking Out.
Whoa! Here we are once again. The month that gets cold in certain states and snow falls. Plus the fat guy in the red suit comes down your chimney and supposedly leaves you some presents. We all know its our parents. I’m not gonna lie to my kids about Santa, whats the point? I’d hate to be the parent who has to tell there kid at the age of 10 that there isn’t no Santa Claus like for real. I know there are some people out there who are with me. Telling yo kids a lie, this ain’t no little lie…this a BIG lie. Yo kid be sitting there crying for 3 hours about how there isn’t no Santa Claus, plus we in the age of “Technology is The Future” meaning yo kid who is 10 years old got a facebook. He/She all over facebook telling his/her friends there ain’t no Santa Claus. Guess who all the parents gonna look at for ruining there children’s happiness on Christmas Eve, yeah they gonna be looking at yo stupid ass for telling. “But we gotta tell our kids sooner or later”. Maybe if you didn’t tell them in the first place that there isn’t no Santa Claus and that we get the presents that make you piss your pants in the morning because of extreme amounts of joy! When I get some kids I’m gonna keep it real with them all the way. “Look thats a bear, when their little there all nice cute and cuddly, when they get older there vicious and deadly. They will maul you to death if they catch you in the forest by yo self”. I’m just gonna keep it real with them. “Boy you better not touch that spider, you touch it its gonna bite you and kill you”. Simple as that, he gets scared and stays away. see how easy that was? Y’all wanna be all oh I’m not gonna tell my baby that. WELL I AM! I know this is sort but this was just on my mind. You people have a nice day, I’m finna go sip on my egg nogg and go watch my skate videos. Comment!
OK so here is where my story begins. Theres this little annoying fat kid who lives around the block from me. Nobody likes him. I already know what your thinking, we should be nice to this boy. How about you live by him and see what its like to have a kid walk up to you who smells like he hasn’t bathed in days and ask you silly questions. Yeah, I thought so.
But any ways I was out side helping my dad when the kid walks down the street yelling at someone asking if he could hop the fence. He was coming home from school so he had a big coat on and his back pack dragging behind him. I continue what I was doing until I hear the fence violently shaking like a dog was trying to get out or something. I look over to see the fat kid on top of the fence slowly making his way over. I yell out “Don’t fall!” and what does he do… fall, at least he fell over the fence, lol. He gets up and picks up all of his crap and throws it into his yard then prepares to hop the fence into his yard. Here is when the funny part starts. I was in my dads garage looking at him struggling to hop the fence. I started to chuckle a bit. I then started knocking on the window which must have startled him because he was hanging on the side of the fence trying desperately to get his leg over the bar. He then got of the side of the fence and turned around with a look of confusion on his face. He was looking all around to see who had knocked on the window, meaning he must have noticed me. He turns back around forgetting it all and once a gain tries to climb over the fence. After 2 more failures he gets a running start to hop the fence. I was in my dads garage laughing the whole time, it was just so funny!
After he gets him self over I start to knock on the window again which caught his attention again. He turned around and yelled out “PEEKABOO!” LMAO!!! I tried to hold my laugh it but it was hard. He was still turned around looking and yelling out “PEEKABOO!” when I slowly opened my the window and yelled out “I SEE YOU!” I wasn’t too sure what the expression on his face was because I was trying to conceal my face against the garage wall. I heard some movement so I looked to see him walking up his back yard and close the gate. That 10 minutes made my day. It was HILARIOUS!!!
Its getting close to that one day in October when people dress up and make a fool out of them selves. Yeah I’m talking about halloween. Why do I say making a fool out of them selves? Because they are! If walking down the street dress up as a possessed clown isn’t stupid then I don’t know what is. Halloween is fun tho, the best part about it is that you get FREE CANDY! Who’s idea was this anyway? Like really, lets go dress up like ghost and knock on doors requesting for candy. It sounds dumb but when your 6 years old its the coolest thing ever!
Do you remember in Elementary School when the day after Halloween kids would come to school with all there candy and talk about how much they got? They still do that crap in high school. I walk in and see a bunch of squares with bags of candy. Arn’t you like 17? I don;t plan on trick or treating this year being that I am to old. This year my plan is to go to Family Dollar or Walmart and buy me a bag of candy that cost $8.00. Its has just as much candy that I would have collected any year so might as well.
You know you can’t be trusting people these days. People putting needles in apples and crap and poising the foods. When you go and trick or treat your basically putting your life in the hands of the people who are giving you the candy because you don’t know what they did to it. Thats why when you go trick or treating you got to go to those highly respected neighborhoods where you know they ain’t sticking the candy down there pants an re-wrapping it…yeah.
So this is my post for Halloween, I might come back on here and make a post on Halloween Day about something but I’m not sure. Just be watching.
