My 2010 Started with a BANG!

Well it is the end of the first day of the 2010 new year for me. I must be honest and say that I am blessed that I made it this far. 2010. That is so cool to even say it. What is even a bigger trip is how it started out for me. Drama in the hood!

Every year my big teddy bear and I bring in the New Year together by having a glass of champagne. Well, this year we planned the same thing. About 11 minutes before the countdown I set my cell's alarm to go of at 11:57 so we can watch the stupid Moon Pie drop downtown and toast to some champagne. Just as we were about to get prepared you could hear the sound of sirens in the distance. At first we thought it on the other side of the field by our house, but it got closer and closer until I say lights through the blinds. I thought it was just an ambulance for someone is the next section of our building. That is until we heard this huge band. Both of us stood up and ran to the bedroom window to see what was going on. Let's just say it was a sight.



The bang we heard was a Cadi that ran into my upstairs neighbors truck, who was out of town at the time. About 6 cops with their guns drawn on a guy getting out the passenger side. I didn't see a driver, but the passenger kneeled in the middle of our parking lot yelling a bunch of crap. Unfortunately, my 4 year old was still up and trying to figure out what was going on. To make it even crazier our niece who lives in the next building called me asking if I saw what was going on and telling me she was on her way down.  Before she could knock on the door we saw them bringing the driver out of the field next to us with nothing on but boxers , wet, and bloody.

Now I hate to laugh at a persons misfortunate but these guys were a fuckin trip. You got a ton of cops around you all with guns out ready to blast your ass. You on your knees dayum near naked and bloody, but your ass wanna talk shit to the biggest cop out there. Gotta be fuckin crazy. It was funny as hell watching these two guys yellin' they are going to complain about getting beatin and telling this cop they will kick his ass. Why? Because when he was in their faces they didn't say shit, but the minute he walked away they started talkin crazy. At one point the cop was like "I don't need this badge to kick your ass. Want me to take it off. I will be just a straight up Prichard nigga then." To make the situation worse a car full of family members came pulling up and decided to be ghetto and talk shit too. They were so lucky the cops didn't hall their ass off too.

One of the guys went to the hospital and the other was taken to Metro I suppose. By the time it was all over it was almost time for Mountain Standard time people to start yellin "Happy New Year". Hubby and I didn't even get to really enjoy our champagne and my 4 y/o was wondering if the cops were going to take mommy and daddy away. Actually, we were just happy that dayum car didn't hit ours. Just so happens that hubby was going to park right next to the truck when he got home. You don't know how glad I was he didn't. Especially since it's the new car and we're making payments. Insurance or not we need that transportation.

Anyhow, that is how our New Year's was brought it.

Welcome to 2010 everybody!!!
Let's make a change for the better this year!!
