the thing about walter payton is that he was great at everything

even playing quarterback.

but anyone can be great at anything.

what made walter


was he was able to be great at things while floating on air.

he did not let gravity get him down.

walter payton glided in the pocket to pass, he skated down the sidelines

even when he threw an interception it was the most graceful pick youd ever seen.

im not having any children, but if theres a happy accident im naming him


after the most beautiful man who ever wore a bears jersey.

i never know when this pretty girls comin over

so when i snack i dont dare dip into the doritos

or sun chips

because that would just destroy my breath.

which as anyone knows is oh so minty fresh.

so i eat fritos. little fun sized bags.

tiny little things that they make for kids to put in their lunch boxes.

but i just looked up at the clock and its 1:31am and she hasnt come over.

she txted that she wasnt coming over, but who trusts modern technology?

but here it is super late, so i put on my slippers and make my way downstairs to the pantry and eye some sun chips.

and as i down em i realize that these arent that bad for ones breath.

the day had started so well. there was apple juice and sunlight.

a request for soul food breakfast, but alas it was packed.

and heres one thing i truly adore about my truest, shes really up for anything

drove past roscoes: too crowded. drove past lucy’s: too not nitetime

drove past this little soul food place – 1130am – and figured why not

which is my name backwards, but everyone forgets.

and the rest of the day just went down hill.

some days you peak at the apple juice.
