finally met aud’s neighbor! she’s a really pretty middle-aged black lady from Chicago. we hung out while she tore down the morning glory infestation that was snuffing out her plot. she says she had a run-in with a creepy white dude in the building a few weeks ago and she casually mentioned that she has to be extra careful about people like that because if cops come they will go after her first. it’s always a trip becoming aware of the massive cracker-shaped gaps in my understanding of how modern American racism actually is.
she let me show her the Captain’s best tricks, then i went in because i was getting a sunburn. it’s fucking boiling out there.
