Another Reason Never To Leave Texas
Another excerpt -- thanks for reading! More soon, my dears ...
“Like I want to haul more worthless shit home. If they did a gambling theme, shouldn’t we be playing for money?” Hank has a Lone Star beer in his hand and I think of a Lone Star billboard -- Another reason never to leave Texas. The first Christmas ornament a friend sent me during my first year in Detroit was a ceramic replica of the Texas flags with the word Home on the back, and I thought not anymore.
“I don’t think it’s legal to give money,” I say.
“God, the humanity,” Hank says, either intentionally or unintentionally echoing the line from Heathers, a movie that had great popularity our senior year. Given the rash of school shootings during the last few years, it’s hard to believe I took a class called Outdoor Education, the focus of which included two months on learning to shoot a gun in lieu of gym.
