I SQUEEZED to get passed the niggaz in the hall; and half naked women with hutchie mama shorts on as we used to call ‘em.
“Oh my bad shaty” said an unidentified male.
“Shaty?” I wonder if he knew he was talking to a woman at least sixteen years his senior, I shook my head. Why couldn’t my people do right? The project buildings were gone but the green apartments became a quick replacement. Krazy’s apartment (a nick name she got a while back cause lil mama don’t take no mess!) was on the first floor. We grew up together, been tight since 6th grade. We always talked about being grown-ups and getting married. I was supposed to have eight kids by now! While she successfully had her four, sometimes I wish she had none. We were supposed to be gazillionaires with huge families who took road trips to nowhere only because we could afford it! Like the song says, “back in the day when I was young…I’m not a kid anymore it’s some days I sit and wish I was a kid again.”Maybe then, if we were still kids, she would’ve never got hooked on that stuff. For some reason or another, fate led us into two separate directions. I bypassed her door to head to the steps for Big Sam’s apartment.
I slammed my knuckles against the door.
“Ey T, get tha doe!” shouted Big Sam
Yep, that was Big Sam alright, loud, fat, and lazy as all get out.
