Taking my money and bagging my groceries.

November 4, 2007

I just saw the smart little kid who skipped 2 grades to join me in biology in 8th grade at the local corner store. Taking my money and bagging my groceries. Yeah, he was ahead of the curve back then. Eleven years ago. I was the number one kid in math and science out of all the kids in any grade at those schools and recognized for it by reputation, but the money I gave him came from my unemployment check.

We’re both much too old for this shit. And too fucked up in some other way on top of that.
