“The ramblings and grumblings of author Ad Hudler”

"Hello? Mayflower?"
Saturday, October 2, 2010

Signs that your neighborhood is going to seed:

1. The third "botanica" store opens within a mile from your house. These are what I call "voodoo stores," which sell powders and potions and candles and such for the native Caribbean crowd.

2. Lap dances are now cheaper than a pitcher of beer at the strip club down the street.

3. You have so many prostitutes in your neighborhood that you start giving them names (in your mind) ... and when one disappears you wonder, "Gosh, I hope she's okay. I mean, I hope she's not dead."

4. The plasma donation center is doing so well they remodel the front entrance.

5. More pawn shops than fast-food outlets.
