Outside my window.


When people stand outside the door to my building and talk on the phone, I can hear every word they say. I live on the third floor, but with open windows I am privy to some of the most interesting conversations. Let's listen in on one such conversation...

"Naw, man, I don't want to be the reason she don't get no education."

...

"Yeah, she needs to do it and not because of me. I can't be the one to support us both. I need her though. You really only get once in a life for something like this."

...

"Well, in Missouri it's 17. Yeah, she turns 17 the day after my court date"
