Your mom told you to be careful, she saw an episode of “Cops in Albuquerque”, where someone was firing a shotgun in the air at the University.
I said, “that’s rare my dear, those guys stick to the Warzone. That’s close to 4 miles away!”
You weren’t buying it.
I said, “stick with me! I was born and raised in Albuquerque. I was in the 18th Street gang as a Tween. I’ve got connections… gang connections.”
You laughed and smiled, and I smiled, and it was funny.
You moved to Albuquerque.
