Pawn Shop Blues

with 3 comments

This used to be Brucie’s Famous Diner across the street from the Sky Tower and Casino – a classic greasy spoon where you could get fed at 4 in the morning. Brucie decided to sell – I don’t know why – maybe he wasn’t quite making a living – or maybe he got tired of being famous. I’ll never know.

The pawn shop opened up in its place. I hate it, loathe the sight of it. House of misery and bad choices, shattered dreams and stupid chances…

I’d love to tarnish it with graffiti, toilet paper and rotten eggs… and spray paint… Yes, I would. But of course I won’t because I’m not that kind of person…

  2. Pawn shots are a blight. Hate them. Hate them. Diners are so much more colorful.
