Because that is what you do on Saturday nights when you’re Moderately Successful At Life.
The bar was not that exciting, aside from the conversation/drunken yelling about the notion that Take On Me, despite its extreme overexposure, is arguably one of the best five songs to come out of the superb music that enveloped the 80’s.
The exciting part was before we even stepped onto the train.
This is a picture of the subway map displayed in the stop by my apartment.
You might not be able to read what someone has written on it, so allow me: “Bent Bros, Sistas. Money, Drugs, Booze, Sex, Music is our every day life! Join us. We nationwide.”
Of course my immediate reaction was, “Well, where can I sign up???”
Then my night got even better, because I noticed this.
I’m sure you don’t understand the Language Of The Street, but “H.Q” means headquarters – and this is right where I live!
I thought to myself, “Well, this is just to good to be true!”
How could I, a simple man with simple dreams, been blessed enough that the Bent Bros and Sistas headquarters – was so easily within my reach?
Money, Drugs, Booze, Sex, Music.
I love all of those things!
The Bent Bros and Sistas is a group I could really get into. Much more so than those other ones, like Big Brothers Big Sisters, where you have to – you know – be A Good Person and Make A Difference.
So I’m going first thing tomorrow morning to sign up.
I wonder what their colors are?
All I have to say is, green brings out my eyes!
