Nothing To Fear
I'm not gonna pretend like I'm no angel or anything. I mean, I've been in
trouble before. But nothing bad. Just small-time stuff, like stealing apples
from the carts down around 105th or sneaking into the Bijou over on
Lexington without paying my dime. Like I said, small-time stuff. Of course
there was that time that Maggie Riley and I dressed a rag doll up in her
baby sister's clothes and threw it off the roof. Whew! I can still feel the
shallackin' I got for that one. But we were just kids then and we didn't
mean any harm. I mean, we never would've done it if we knew her Ma
was sitting on the fire escape. I felt really bad afterwards. Maggie said
she'd never seen her Ma faint before, and with nine kids I guess she
must've had a scare or two in her time.
