Good Morning Ysrayl…

When I was a small child my mom, my little brother and myself lived in the lower unit of a house on 39th and Burleigh… This was in the Mid Eighties, rite when it started to get kinda bad over there… … … And we lived next door to a family of four, my mom had become friends with the mom, and we would play outside with their kids while my mom and their mom would talk on the porch… A Husband and Wife, and their OLDER son and YOUNGER by a couple years DAUGHTER… The son and I were the same age… Really Nice Family… … … So one weekend out of one the summers we were over there the family that we had become pretty close to had taken a road trip somewhere, and while they were gone someone had broken into there home in the middle of the night… … … Now when you read that someone’s HOME was broken into, “MOST” would tend to think that the place was either RAN SACKED, or that people got off with some good VALUABLES… … … Now I’m not EXACTLY sure WHAT TYPES of DRUGS MAKES a PERSON BREAK into a HOME in the MIDDLE of the NIGHT a COUPLE BLOCKS away from the POLICE STATION, and “ONLY” STEAL the “MEAT” out the DEEP FREEZER… … … But ALL I’m sayin is, that NIGGA HAD a SERIOUSLY FUCKED UP case of the MUNCHIES… … … They STOLE “ALL” the MEAT out the FREEZER and LITERALLY LEFT EVERYTHING ELSE… … …

But ANYWAY, when they got back home they obviously realized that their home was broken into and the FATHER of Family went and bought a GUARD DOG… … … Now MOST people that invest into a NICE GUARD “USUALLY” go with a Puppy and they TRAIN them to RECEGONIZE EVERYONE, TRAIN them to FUCKIN “LISTEN”, you know GOOD shit like that… … … No, this MAN went and BOUGHT a FULLY GROWN GERMAN SHERPARD named “BEAR”… … … Now I didn’t “SEE” BEAR go into the HOUSE the DAY before when they bought him, I just heard from my GOOD FRIEND, “AFTER” some DECIPHERING that they had a NEW DOG that I needed to come see… … … Now what EXACTLY do I MEAN by “DECIPHERING”?… … … Well, my GOOD FRIEND whom I would go to WAR with was an EXTREMELY good FRIEND, good kid to play with and ALL that stuff, but he had a “SERIOUS” “STUTTERING” PROBLEM… … … Now when I say “SERIOUS”, I’m saying he was one of those “BRUH JUST WRITE IT DOWN” people… … … So you COULDN’T REALLY TRUST you COMPLETELY UNDERSTOOD what the FUCK was COMING out HIS MOUTH… … … And that SHIT got us ROASTED a FEW times after we don did something we KNOW we Wasn’t SUPPOSED to be DOIN, and this nigga fucked up the LIE before we even had chance to use it… … …

SO ANYWAY, they’re EXCITED to show me their NEW GUARD DOG “BEAR”… Now being a KID and you’re about to go meet your KID FRIEND’S DOG for the FIRST time, you NORMALLY just jump rite into those situations EXCITED, FULL LIFE and WONDER… So NATURALLY I was EXCITED… … … SO the moms are outside talking like usual and BEAR is in the HOUSE in the BASEMENT in a ROOM… So we ASK permission to go play with BEAR so I see him for the FIRST time… … … So we TAKE off into the HOUSE and start off into the BASEMENT… We get to the ROOM that BEAR was IN and they OPEN the DOOR… … … And my LIFE was CHANGED INSTANTLY y’all… … … I was like a “NEW MAN”, “as a kid”… … … The BIGGEST FUCKIN DOG in the WORLD RAN out that ROOM and was up on my ASS so FAST, that it was FASTER than MY “ACTUAL” BODY could MOVE, so I SAID FUCK IT and just LEFT MY BODY… … … Fuck that, family was gon have to catch up later… … … But SERIOUSLY y’all, this DOG was sooooo BIG and he was RITE NEXT to me soooo FAST, when I BLINKED he was RITE THERE… … … AND HE WAS BIGGER THAN ME… … … Now AT FIRST I was “ATTEMPTING” to NOT ACT SCARED BECAUSE they SEEMED to NOT RECOGNIZED that OUR LIVES were in REAL DANGER… But then BEAR “BARKED” at my “HEAD” soooo BIG and LOUD that it “HURT MY WHOLE BODY” y’all, and for SOME REASON I FELT EXTREMELY FRAGILE and VULNERABLE… … … SO BEAR BARKED at MY HEAD y’all, and I LOST CONSCIOUSNESS… … … When I WOKE UP I was FALLING down the STAIRS to the PORCH OUTSIDE… I DON’T KNOW HOW I GOT there, nor did I CARE, or about the WAY things LOOKED in that house AFTER I PASSED THROUGH it, BEAR JUST BARKED AT MY HEAD and TIME STOPPED… … …

Now fast forward a Year or two and NEITHER us or our FREINDS lived on 39th STREET anymore… They moved to a SAFER area off of SEVENTY SOMETHING and Mill RD… … … We ARE STILL friends with them and go by their home to visit and play every so often… … … Now myself and their SON were OLDER and BIGGER so the THINGS we WANTED to do we COULDN’T ALWAYS do because we HAD his LITTLE SISTER with us… A LOT of the things we wanted to do my Brother would not be able to do long because he had ASTHMA real bad… … … SO when we PLAYED we HAD to HAVE HER with us… If we road our BIKES, she had to be WITH us and WE HAD to PROTECT her and KEEP her SAFE… … … MOST of the TIME I didn’t really care, she just wanted to have some fun too. But her BROTHER HATED that SHIT, so when we would ride bikes and we would get off far from her, he would just keep riding and would stay behind so she wouldn’t be by herself… Plus we was gon get in trouble ANYWAY… … … The problem with that was, THAT LITTLE GIRL THOUGHT I LIKED HER BECAUSE I WAS DOIN ALL that and SHE had a REAL CRUSH on me before that shit was cool… … … So she made the shit weird… … … But this little GIRL was “EXTREMELY” SMART, A LOT SMARTER than MOST would have THOUGHT looking at her age…

But anyway, one day we are at their HOME playin in the backyard and me and the son was tryna do some super stupid little boy shit that THREATENED our LIVES of course… You know it really Wasn’t FUN UNLESS you “ALMOST” DIED… … … So we DOIN SOMETHING that the SISTER can’t do and she wanted us to PLAY HOUSE with her… “NAW MAN DON’T NOBODY WANNA PLAY HOUSE”, shit it was TREES NEEDED to be CLIMBED, GARAGES, NIGGA it was CLUB HOUSES NEEDED to be BUILT, all that GOOD STUFF… Don’t nobody wanna play HOUSE… … … And I WAS the ONE that VOICED that to HER… Not RUDE, but we GOTTA CLIMB this TREE and JUMP onto the GARAGE before it MAKE us LOOK weak… … … And that PISSED her OFF… … … Not just because I just SAID “I” didn’t wanna play with her and I didn’t have no rites to because in her mind we went together, but I said it and JUST RAN OFF and STARTED climbing the TREE… … … So she ran and told that we been PLAYIN “ALL” this time and we wouldn’t play with her… So we got FUSSED at and they made us play one of her games… And NATURALLY what did she wanna PLAY?… HOUSE… … … And who did she elect to be the Husband?… … … But I wasn’t having that shit, HELL NAW, I’ll be the son… … … So she’s the Mother, I’m the Son, my Brother was the Father that was the YOUNGEST out of everybody and DIDN’T really know what the Hell he was supposed to be doin, so she made him walk the DOG… Now HER BROTHER ELECTED to be the DOG because we COULDN’T USE BEAR… And you GOTTA have a DOG if you REALLY playin HOUSE… … …

So this Little GIRL is running the HOUSE and we just basically doin what she says until we can play our GAMES… … … But the WHOLE time this little girl is STILL kinda salty that I “DIDN’T” WANNA PLAY house to BEGIN with and I WAS HER MAN, “ANNND” when we was “FORCED” to play house, I still CHOSE to be the SON… So she telling me to do something as the Mother that I didn’t wanna do and she said, “GO GET ME A SWITCH”… … … Now my MOM didn’t whoop us with SWITCHES, we got our ass whooped with a BELT, and I was young so I didn’t KNOW what a SWITCH WAS the TIME… … … Now CHECK it out y’all, when I tell you HAVING HIND SIGHT that when I told that LITTLE GIRL I didn’t KNOW what a SWITCH was, that HER EYES LIT UP LIKE the FOURTH, I’m SAYING that LITTLE GIRL WAS “HAPPY”… … … So I asked what a SWITCH was and she POINTED out and TOLD ME to “BREAK OFF that LITTLE BRANCH”… And I LITTERALLY broke of this LITTLE ASS PIECE of TWIG… She said, “YOU GOTTA TAKE the LEAVES off of IT”… … … SO I LITERALLY TOOK the LEAVES off this LITTLE ASS TWIG for her so she can HURRY UP and WHOOP my ASS for NOT LISTENING so we can BE DONE with this SHIT… … …

Now… … … ALONG with NOT being PROPERLY PREPARED for this LITTLE GIRL’S PSYCHOLOGY, and just THINKING because this was a LITTLE GIRL that I didn’t REALLY HAVE to be SCARED… … … I’m a BIGGER, STRONGER BOY, I CAN JUST LET this LITTLE GIRL “PLAY” WHOOP my ASS for not LISTENING to HER and just be DONE with it… … … SO I need to inform about “TWO” major issues with this “PLAY” ASS WHOOPIN that I LITERALLY JUST PICKED out and PERFECTLY TRIMMED the SWITCH for… … … First one is, NO ONE EVER TOLD me what the HELL a SWITCH was up until that POINT, and the SECOND ISSUE HAVING “HIND SIGHT”, is the ATTIRE that I was WEARING, “WHILE” I was SETTIN MY OWN ASS WHOOPIN up for this LITTLE GIRL… … … Personally, I FEEL like the SHORTS I was WEARING at the time was MORE of a PARENTING ISSUE… But you KNOW you can’t go there… … … Imma JUST TELL you STRAIGHT FORWARD, we GROWN, my SHORTS was WAAAY TOO LITTLE Y’all… … … And as a FULLY GROWN MAN I’m STILL a LITTLE BOTHERED that there were NO ISSUES with those SHORTS… … …

But Anyway, I gave her the SWITCH and “TOOK OFF ON MY ASS”… … … Now, the “ONLY” thing I CAN RELATE that SENSATION to was “HOT”… … … So for a BRIEF SECOND, I was “CONFUSED” about what was the HAPPENING with my LEGS that WAS AKIN to “FIRE” WRAPPING AROUND them… It COULDN’T be coming from that LITTLE ASS PIECE of TWIG that I JUST PERFECTLY TRIMMED NEAT and POLISHED, and this LITTLE ASS GIRL that WEIGHED about AS MUCH as the TWIG… This was “REAL FIRE” on my ASS, but ALL I SEE is this LITTLE GIRL… … … SO after MY BRAIN connected with the LOSS of LIFE to my OWN BEING, I GRABBED that TWIG y’all… … … And you KNOW WHAT?… … … That LITTLE GIRL LAUGHED AT MY ASS and TOOK OFF RUNNIN… … … I DIDN’T know what to do with what that LITTLE just DID to me, I gave HER THE SWITCH, TRIMMED it PERFECT and EVERYTHING… … … I was BIGGER and STRONGER, no NEED to WORRY about that LITTLE GIRL… … … We grew up and went our ways like people do, but I ALWAYS think about that LITTLE girl… … … She NEEDED to be HEARD and I WAS the ONE that WASN’T LISTENING, and it COST me… … …
