Peace & Love From the ‘Hood

I want to give a shout out to all my homies that get crunk over on the west side and for always keepin’ it real and thug-like yo. Yah hearrrd meh!

I’ve always wanted to say that. There. Got it out of my system. Thank you for letting me channel the inner gangsta in me.


For the real thanks. Because I hear Thanksgiving is like, tomorrow and stuff. So, I should probably join in on the soppy “I’m thankful for…” love fest. But, don’t worry. I’ll be succinct.

Family. Friends. Food. Shelter. Happiness.

That’s it. In a nutshell. I told you I’d be quick.

But, I can’t leave you without first showing you some old pictures. Laugh if you must.

I’m Thankful For Being Allowed to Eat Ice Cream in the Car.

Chocolate. Ice Cream.

I’m Thankful for Being Given a Large Wooden Spoon to Eat my Dinner With

But Most of All…I’m Thankful For You.

Thanks for reading all my weird words.
