To help offset the bitch-fest that was my last post, here's something less ranty.
On Friday afternoon I was genuinely grinning from ear to ear when I overheard a conversation between these two young dudes on the bus:
|Gangstas who read.|
They seemed like decent kids. When I say "gangstas" I don't mean murderous drug dealers - just young goofballs who are perhaps a little too caught up in pop culture.
But then I overheard them talking:
White gangsta: I, uh, started reading a book yesterday.
Black gangsta: Really?
White gangsta: Yeah. I was at my buddy's house and he had a lot of books. This one looked interesting, so I borrowed it. So far, it's really good.
Black gangsta: That's cool, man.
White gangsta: So I'm just gonna read, now, K?
Black gangsta: Yeah, ok.
And then I smiled ALL THE WAY HOME.
