Rap 9

Women loved Jimmy because he was big and stupid. I loved Jimmy because he attracted women. Veronica hadn’t called in a month. I thought about giving up drinking. I wanted to give my relationship with Veronica a chance. It would take time. Meanwhile, I would have to be constructive with my sobriety. I had an aunt in Ohio who collected rubber stamps.

Jimmy was on the couch between two groupies, watching a match on television. I told him about my idea of collecting rubber stamps.

I got two beers from the fridge …

“Fuck…off,” he said, without looking away from the match.

I got two beers from the fridge, one for him and one for me.
