I had my windows opened all last night and it finally hit me: you forgot what the hood felt like. Here’s how you know you left.
5. Your Ankles are Safe
There’s no fear of the neighbor’s dog getting loose and biting through your Achilles heel. Unless you live wherever Dak Prescott’s dog does.
4. The Potential for Burglary Becomes Limitless
All you see are huge houses with beautiful driveways, luxury cars…and no curtains on the windows. I mean you can see all in the house! Is this why they have neighborhood watch?
3. It’s Noisy
Not with blaring music, people fighting, or gunshots…no it’s loud with something way worse: crickets. Have you ever just laid up and heard crickets chirp?? If I had to walk at night, I’d definitely wear a hoodie. Well….maybe not.
2. The Holidays are REAL Festive
Halloween in the front yard looks like a real graveyard, and don’t even get me started on Christmas! Nativity scene so lit up, it got Jesus looking at it like he don’t remember being born there! Their light bill is higher than my mama’s property taxes!
1. You Have Travel to a Liquor Store
You’re used to the Holy Trinity: the liquor store, pawn shop, and a McDonald’s within a 500 feet radius. But leave the hood and they have health stores, good schools, community centers…it’s almost like they don’t want the hood to have these things…
