secret hiding spot...

Early this morning, I stopped at the extremely ghetto gas station near my house to fill my desperately empty gas tank. This gas station possesses a dilapidated, dusty and disgusting convenience store, packed with a collection of hot dogs from the Nixon Administration and locals admiring them.
As someone had inserted chewing gum into the pay station at the actual pump, I was forced to go inside the dreaded convenience store, wading through a sea of people simply standing there, chatting away or reading Mexican porn. As I waited in the appallingly long line, avoiding eye contact and trying not to touch anything, the man in line directly in front of me crouched down on the ground and began rolling up his pant leg.
From within his left sock, he pulled a roll of one dollar bills, carefully counted out three of them, and returned the remaining cash to its secure spot deep inside his “wallet.” Unable to stop myself, I was caught staring.
“I see you found my secret hiding spot.”
Nervous laughter.
“Don’t you tell nobody, now.”
With my friend now at the register, I watched him spend those three dollars on a taquito and a Big Gulp of hot chocolate. The time was 8:07am.

The next time you’re given change at a ghetto gas station, know that the bills you are holding could very well have come from someone’s “secret hiding spot”…

just read the blip and I don't see why you view
your ghetto fabulous life as a negative. between the
taco window, crack whores, bums sleeping on rhonda
the honda, and occasional vandalism, your hood
ain't that bad. keep on keepin' it real.

That is soooo good Beth. Had to respond because I've been chuckling for the last five minutes and can't stop. Tried drinking water but it just comes out my nose. Hotdogs from the Nixon Administration! Always wondered where those weenies went.

Love your stuff..... t.p.
