Calm your narrow ass down.

I read about you

in the papers, girl.

What did it say?

That you love me.


And that you was fixin' to open a can of

whup-ass on the basketball court tonight.

So you can read.

Do you still love me?

Of course I do.

What's goin' on

with the freaks?

I kicked some big-headed n*gger

out of here a little while ago.


I didn't ask him

his name.


I don't know. I never saw him before.


You deaf too?

Hey, y'all

Mike hit me!

Goddamn it, what

the hell's going on?

Who touched my towel?

This red towel is my towel, and

Cammie, you've gotta go home.


Earl! Burl!

Bye, Cammie.
