Floor Sample

My friend's daughter asks me
to take her hostage, to hold her
so she can't be free. I've played
this game before, I think. Do you
make boys sleep near the window
so you can push them out if you
don't like them?, she asks me when
she plays dress up in my clothes.
When I get older, I'm going to be
mean because I can and not love
anyone. Or at least let them know.
Then they'll be my hostages. She's
small for her age, but wears my clothes
well, as if they were made for her.

I pushed a guy out through the window in the Sopranos. More like threw him through the window. Paulie Walnuts really got mad at me for it, too. It was his nephew I threw out.--Christopher Moltisanti
