so i wanted to get to the sto’ early today.
i know if i went later,
i’d have to deal with the baby mamas and mamas babies.
so i put my headphones on,
got my grocery cart,
and headed down the block.
while i was in the sto’,
i was trying not to spend an arm and leg on food.
lately my food bills have been out of my budget.
last time was 175.
i had to pay some bills and couldn’t afford it.
while i was getting eggs,
listening to “v.s.o.p” on repeat,
i saw this hand out the corner of my eye waving.
when i looked…
it was the older vixen i know from the laundromat two blocks over.
every time i go to wash clothes,
she is always working and was always friendly.
i thought about her because i got a mountain of dirty clothes to wash soon.
i took my headphones off and we started to talk.
she was telling me how she was laid off and i won’t be seeing her there anymore.
this must be a season of everyone getting “laid off” from their jobs.
what surprised me is she wasn’t stressed about it at all.
i admire those kinds of attitudes.
from the looks of it,
unemployment has been doing her well,
but she was still looking for a job in the area.
she told me she lives across the street from the laundry.
she wanted to be close to her crib again.
“i gotta get a job because my lazy ass son. he in here somewhere…”
suddenly this wolf walked up and damn near stopped in his tracks.
he looked like he saw a ghost,
as did i.
i knew him.
he wasn’t as good looking in person.
he was also thicker than in his pictures.
i could tell he looked good a few years ago.
see when i was on jack’d that last time,
i met this light skinned wolf that wanted me to come over to smash.
he was acting super thirsty that it turned me off,
but he was kinda “hood wolf swag deluxe” and i liked the appeal.
i noticed he would only hit me up certain times because according to him:
“my moms ain’t gonna be home until later.”
that was sort of a turn off sentence beyond the thirst…
we exchanged numbers and showed each other our faces.
what made him stand out in front of me tho?
all them damn tats on his arms.
i pretended i didn’t know him and gave him dap as we were introduced.
i told her i had to bounce,
but i wished her luck on finding work.
i couldn’t be off that fast enough.
“thank you. we should really get up soon man.”
it was from an unknown number,
but i knew it was from the wolf in the sto’.
too bad for him i’m not interested.
i also erased his number couple days ago.
what really bugged me out walking home tho…
this wolf from the back looked JUST like star fox.
even his side profile.
he was definite a lot more hood,
but he looked just like my friend.
this isn’t the first time ive seen people who look like my parents and star fox.
shit i wish it was him so i could tell him that story.
he would’ve been on the floor.
