Children are heathens. Born and Bred, plain and simple. Yes even
your child(ren) reader. Leave them alone with something you told them
not to touch/eat/play with and see what happens when your back is turned
(while trying to provide a home and food to eat no less!). I am a
school bus driver[ I got fired from
this job a month later for "attendance policy violation" due to calling
in exhausted from working nights at the Jail]-- hey stop snickering, it pays tuition and it beats
stripping. Apparently 11 yr olds these days aren't just interested in
the latest Barbie doll or G.I. Joe "action figure*"(* Dolls for boys who
is Mattel trying to fool?) they're also interested in their school bus
driver's sex life. I will explain.
A pair of twins ride my bus, since they're minors I'll protect their
identity, I'll call them Heathen1 and Heathen2. Heathens 1&2 are
fraternal twins a boy and a girl somehow through the magic of
genetics/God's sense of humor Heathen1 (a boy) sounds a lot like LaToya
Jackson, and Heathen2 (a girl) sounds like late Jazz great Louie
Armstrong. Like most twins there's a special relationship they share
because unlike one being evil or one being smarter than the other.
Heathen1 is more sane than Heathen2 and thus is her handler; in other
words, he's her filter. She asks him questions first, and he decides
whether or not they're appropriate for asking. But alas, sometimes
Heathen2 cannot control her insanity for it swells like gasses in a
corpse and needs instant release and thus went the following sceneario:
Heathen2: Ms. Nia, can I ask you a personal question? (Heathen1
quickly turns in the direction of Heathen2 and raises an eyebrow as if
to say "You have to ask ME first!")
Me: *sigh* No.
Heathen2: Welllllllllllllllllllllllll. I'ma ask ya anyway. Have you
ever slept with a Man? How many? And....what did it feel like?
Me: Girl...WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?! Heathen1 I thought you had this under control dude! We had a deal!
Heathen1: Sorry! I gave her the look but she kept talking!
Heathen1: Yeah, but you don't ask about people's sex lives Heathen2!
Especially Ms. Nia! I mean, come on Ms. Nia having sex? (Heathen1 throws
his smaller than average head back in a fit of laughter, once it
subsides he lowers his smaller than average head) Sorry Ms. Nia, I
didn't mean that.
Me: It's cool. Just don't let it happen again.
note: I couldn't really get mad, I mean it's not like I am having sex. I was just more pissed off at the fact that a kid could pick up on that.

I work at a jail. Getting hit on by inmates is just an occupational
hazard, but a recent incident occured I just HAD to share. Apparently
there's a hot new trend amongst the unemployed with pending traffic
tickets: Go to jail and work them off as a Trusty (pronounced trust-ee.
hehe when you bring them up on the floors to work, you scream out
"Trustys!" But I like to say "Trusteez-nuts"!!! Oh, come on, that's
funny and you know it!). Long story short, I come in to work and there's
a Trusty sitting on the bench outside the clinic waiting for me to take
him up on the elevator. He smiled at me and his lips cracked. and
began. to. bleed. My night went downhill from there.
Trusty: I like yo dreads. They real nice, how long you had em like dat?
T: You look like you into soul music, like Angie Stone. You like
Angie Stone. (people this was not a question, it was a declarative
T: I said...
M: I heard what you said man, stop fucking talking to me and board the elevator...and face the back.
T: I know ya'll aint allowed to git wit the inmates but I git out
tonight. Maybe you and me could listen to a symphony ya know like dat
Jill Scott song.
I decided to do a lil research on my admirer and found out that he's:
Homeless, arrested for possesion of crack cocaine, and HIV positive.
About an hour ago, I swear I saw the same dude in the library, CHECKING HIS
MYSPACE PAGE!! Fucked up ain't it?

The following is an open letter to Ms. Alicia J. Aguello-Cook BKA;Alicia Keys
I am Nia De-Bose, a female American citizen who falls within J
Records/ Sony BMG Music Entertainment, Inc.'s target demo of 18-34 year
old Blacks and Hispanics. Firstly, I'd like to congratulate you on your
record breaking event of the longest running consecuative singles of 16
weeks. Bringing your total residence atop the Billboard 100 to 38
weeks. Good job. With that being said, are you aware that your song "No
One" has been played an average of 7,000 times per day? Are you aware
that your singles are played on multiple markets? For instance, in an
attempt to escape said single, I switched to an "Easy Listening" FM
station, and was greeted by sloppy, spitty mouth-kiss by "No One". Not
one to give up, again I switched to a market touting "Smooth Jazz" and
again, there you were. Taunting, teasing, mocking. 7000/day Alicia.
That means as you sit at a bay window overlooking Manhattan, filling
another notebook with self-reflective and introspective poems
replacing the one that you "accidentally" left at your manager's office
which will soon become your next album/monologue for your next feature
film audtion, someone, somewhere is subjected to your single every 4.85
minutes spanning up to five separate stations. This is the point where
I'm sure you're sitting back, crossing those toned and tanned arms,
scoffing while puffing on a Newport (menthol, perhaps?) calling me a
hater. No ma'am! Alls I'm saying is; Can you turn it down a little?
Please? That is all.
PS: Oh yeah, one more thing: INDIA. ARIE GOT ROBBED!

How many times have you met or worked with someone who took their job
way too seriously? Here's a few tips for the overly enthusiastic
Waistaff and Assistant Managers/Middle Men & Women of the world.
1. Accept the fact that your job is disposable. Bennigan's Grill and
Tavern closed all of its corporate-owned locations nationwide after
filing for bankruptcy (which isn't surprising, since their food tasted
like char broiled foreskin). That amounts to 160 locations, and about
10,000 employees are out of work. And they didn't find out until they
showed up for work and the doors were locked.
2. If you haven't been promoted by now...- The old-fashioned way used
to be kind of clear cut; show you were a hard worker as soon as you
started and you could climb that ladder, resulting in your very own
private office with a secretary to bang on your lunch break. If you've
been a Customer Service rep for 6 YEARS just let that pipe dream go, and
either start over with another company, accept your fate... or sleep
with your boss, but that one holds no guaruntee.
3. You're not getting paid enough to put up with your bullshit-ass
job anyway. Nope, I don't want to hear it. You know you agree with me.
4. Don't be a back stabber- NO ONE LIKES A SNITCH!!! It won't get you
promoted. The following conversation has never taken place; "Hey, let's
promote Debbie. She tells on EVERYBODY surely she would keep such
great tabs on her subordinates she'd NEVER tell on us." If you tell on
fellow co-workers 10 times out of 10 you're gonna keep singing like
canary. So knock that shit off.
5. If you get fired, you can always start over.- You can go back to school, or you can switch careers entirely. So go ahead, tell your boss to suck it from the back!

(The following passage is written from the point of view of Salvatore
Milano, an Italian tailor in Florence, Italy. FYI: Before you google
that name, I MADE IT UP! This is a work of fiction...because it's a
Salvatore Milano sits near the window of his shop, Su Misura Vestiti
adjusting a completed suit on a manequin. Though the straight pins in
his mouth cause his proper Italian words to sound muffled, his
loud voice is clear and precise. His nephew, Rodolpho, translates;
My uncle says, some want this man, McCain, to be the next leader of
America. Hmph, I spit! Ptwf! His sense of style is a disgrace to the
people of America. He wears, how do you say? Sweater Vests!
And, coats made of...Denim! I would not bury my worst enemy that I
murdered with my bare hands in a Denim jacket. I'm sorry, who? Repeat
his name? Obama? Sounds Muslim...but he dresses impeccably. For him,
ehhhh I would vote. -fin
John McCain has been the perferred candidate in the Boots vs. Suits
debate. Meaning what kind of president do Americans want? A rough and
tumble cowboy (Boot) or a slick, well-dressed "fast talker" (Suit)?
Well, how about Old&Cantakerous vs Young&...um Not Canakerous
*sniff*, uh oh! what's that smell? *sniff* *sniff* I SMELL A BUDDY
COMEDY!! C'mon America, get on board! Trend hopping and profit
capitalizing is what we do best! I give you:
THE ODD COUPLE 2008: PAJAMACAIN AND THE BARACK-STAR!
[deep movie announcer voice] In a world, where public funding,
fashion, and foriegn policy collide. Two men will become
candidates...for Friendship! Will this "Young Wippersnapper" teach this
"Old Codger" a thing or two about foriegn oil dependency?
Obama: John McCain? More like PAJAMcCain! Up top Michelle! (slaps hi-five with wife)
Can John McCain put up with the vivacious engergy of this young Democrat...AND the sassy retorts of his potential running mate Hillary Clinton?!
Clinton: I bet you don't even know how many houses you own...WIT YO OLD RICH ASS!
McCain (flustered): Oh, yes I do, umm. 4, no 19? CINNNNNNNDDDDYYY!!
Coming to a polling place near you!
PS: John McCain's new nickname is PajaMcCain, pass it on.

I have been without electricity for a week now, courtesy of
Hurricaine Ike (insert "What's Love Got to do With It?" quote here) So I
go to my buddy-buds John Gard and gl-friend extrodinare Shoshanah's
apt, where my life was forever changed for the better. The following
shall be in the format of a short story.
She placed her hand over her stomach in the same fashion as an
expectant mother. The rumbling had been going on for over an hour now
and it seemed there was no relief in sight. The city wide curfew would
take effect in two hours, but the few resturaunts that were open had
closed hours earlier due to restricted menus and limited deliveries of
fresh meats and produce.
"Hey Nia, you hungry?" John asked, tossing his flawlessly tossled
salt-and-peppered blond locks out of his eyes. He had a way of making
you feel safe, even in the eye of peril. He and his life partner
Shoshanah took me and a few other friends in for the night, offering us
libations with lime and Sierra Mist. This was not unsual, for the pair
were great friends and even better hosts, but tonight they would do more
than offer me shelter with running water and electricity (& HD
cable with South Park episodes saved to DVR). Tonight John
Gard prepared for me, a sammich.
"Yeah, you wanna order a pizza?" I said, with a hint of naivete "I'll put 8 bucks on it." John answered with a scoff.
"Pizza? Hmph, I'm gonna make something that's gonna change your life."
"For the better?" I asked.
"For the better." He responded. I watched as he collected his
ingrediants; Chicken Strips, Avocado, Pepper Jack Cheese...I shant
reveal the rest. Fifteen minutes later, he removed the chicken strips
from the toaster oven, gingerly placing them atop the botton portion of a
whole wheat bun, topping the Skrips with the aforementioned toppings.
Here me now MySpace.com, John Gard opened my eyes to the glorious
wonders that are Chicken Skrips (available at all local low-cost
grocers). Paired with whole wheat buns and various ingrediants, the
ending result: A CHICKEN SKRIP SAMMICH!! Educate yourselves MySpace.
