Every Friday Ma asks me to pick up a fresh bottle of milk and a fish for dinna, but brotha, not all Fridays are the same.
Anybody caught alone, lost, on the back streets a South Boston is frikkin asking fa’ah beatin. But this time, you shoulda seen this guy! He musta been 8 feet tall, minimum! Hikin boots, plum-smugglin super high khaki shorts, hat, and no shirt- are you frikkin kiddin me!? Last thing I need to see on my way home to ma is 20 yards of tangled chest haih.
When I first saw this guy, he was tapping on the front window of an old bakery, each rap a his fingah makin a small crack in the glass. I joined the group of people gatherin around and watched as a sandvich stuffed hoovy asked him to leave. The guy turned around, drew 100 liters of air into his lungs, and bellow out, “SAXTON HALE!”
Everyone cowahd! Nobody could move! We were deafened! Stunned by the scream. And brotha, in one swift kidney punch he took the hoovy down. Once we got our bearings back, we mobbed him.
