First up, thanks for all the congrats and love shown on the last blog. Y'all made a brother feel all warm and fuzzy lol. And the misses says thank you too. She seems surprised that people actually like me but I explained that you guys probably don't know me well so she understands now lol.
'Hey guy, make sure they give you hazard pay'
That was the conversation between my bus driver and his colleague driving the 116 this evening as we pulled out of Kennedy on my way home. It was a way of lightening the moment somewhat after a serious incident which occurred this weekend when a driver was shot in the eye by a stray bullet on that same route.
Its pretty sad actually. Here is a guy doing an honest day's work, providing a public service, and not troubling anyone and he gets caught up in someone else's drama. The result; the lost of an eye. The innocent paying for the sins of the guilty.
Its getting cold here, I thought the gun violence would subside a bit after summer ended but it seems like it may be here to stay. We could be looking at the new norm. How soon before shootings in the T-dot become as prevalent as those in some big cities south of the border and we become desensitized to them?
Quite a shame.
On another note. Yo, my domino bredren was on Jeopardy tonight and won. Knocked off the three day champ even though he clearly had buzzer issues. I know some folk who used to look down on us like we was riff raff when we was always licking sixes! Guh way! Dem never really know the man have superior intelligence and domino is just a stress relief ting. Let me see if those punks have enough sense to even reach Jeopardy let alone win. Big up Dominic! Respect! He'll be back on again tomorrow to defend.
