TITLE: Roses in Pencil
GENRE: Literary Humor
Some people say I ain’t smart enough to have did what I done. But some of the guys who say that ain’t exactly Einstein Bagels themselves and probably ain’t as smart as stuff they done either. Sometimes smart and lucky is the same thing, which a guy should not get credit for even if they want to.
OK, so getting in a fight with the meanest gang guy in Denver wasn’t smart or lucky, I’ll give you that one. I shouldn’t of done that and I ain’t got excuses. And any time you see a murder, you got to figure you done some dumb stuff to put you in the wrong spot at the right time. So it would be fair to take off some of my brain points for being a murder witness, on top of the points for the unfortunate gang incident. But then you got to add some luck points for not getting killed myself, and some on account of the turtle. Since smart and lucky is a lot alike, as I already explained, I think my luck points raises my brain points back to a level playing field.
