To my bro whose schaudenfruede is hidden by his huge heart and rosy cheeked chuckle. To Watts and South Central for their Cheshire cat grins and homeboy loyalty(Watts is still dying to know what happened in Nashville this summer). To Beautiful for being fodder for gossip and for getting my cousin’s number the other night. To Babo and Q for being our glue. To my sister in law for standing in the rain with no coat. To Lisabet for the highfives and having my back. To Slim and his wife, Smiley, for leaving at halftime like we did so we don’t feel like suckas. To and for everyone in our crew.
