I live in this here huge bungalow and all. The neighbourhood is all quiet now, but sometime back crazy gangs and gang-affiliated people used to run up all over the damn place. They was robbery, injuries, raping, and even death. So the neighbourhood got the cops driving around at night and everything. And the cops even adviced us to go buy guns, licensed ones, you know for self-defence and all. It was really that bad. So I call up my Dad, and he sends me here a package. Guess whats in it - a nice looking piece, with licenses and all. I've been keeping the piece for like 2 years now. And no gangs have come near my crib, except for this time, and I had to shoot the gun in the air, and they scampered off like rats. They were just kids, the cops confirmed to me in the morning. Not the dangerous ones. So I've got this crazy cousin who drops by every once in a while. He goes to the state college. And I'm sure he's in a gang. He's mad as crazy. So one day I'm coming out from the shower, and this here dude is searching my drawers, pulling out the gun and stuffing it in his damn back pocket and all, catridges and everything. I go berserk, naturally and ask him to hand over the weapon. The guy denied having anything on him. I asked him what's in his stupid back pocket, and he lied like a madman. You shoulda seen the look on his face, too. He looked like he was gonna blow my brains out right there. So we go back and forth like dis and finally I take the gun from him. The guy is kinda scared of me. He didnt used to be, though. He always thought I was the quiet sort. Till he talked rude at my Moms one time, when she visited and I had to bitch slap him a bit. I know he wont try any thing when I'm around. But I know he wants the gun. I'm keeping it elsewhere now. But I have a feeling he'll find it. Also I dont wanna walk around packing heat every damn place I go to. That'll be dumb. So where the hell do I hide the gun from my crazy cousin?
I'd hide it in the religion forum. Trust me, so much noise, backbiting and activity going on, no one's going to notice one little gun ... Slip it in somewhere between 'atheism is irrational' and 'ladies why are you going against the word of God'
Oh, I've told him. He pretends he's going thru my music cds or dvd collection or just fiddling with my game controllers or something. I know what he's really out for. I would throw him out easily. But his family. And where I come from, family values is everything.
