and i said, “yeah, but i tried not to.” and i yelled, “thanks a lot Business Man. i’m gonna kill you if this isn’t negative.” the guy gave all 8 of us little yellow cards that read “Safer Sex is Sexy.” and i kept showing them to Business Man, and to an entourage of strangers.
we were catching some air- walking with people on bikes outside, in the night, in the dark. some guy looked at us and offered us drugs. i don’t know if i’d said something about them- out-loud. but Business Man and i were game.
some kids, around 18 or 19 started following us, not sure if they were going to the same place. but Business Man told everyone where to go, and he gave them directions. we walked and held hands the whole way.
