I woke up early and worked all day long, putting on a show for classroom after classroom. After lunch was when I really started to plan my afterschool. Buzzing in the background of the rest of the day was, “bike, gym, steam room, bike, leftover chili, T-flippin’-V.” And when the day was done, well, that’s what I did. I rode down Willow to avoid traffic and stopped to take a picture of this house on Willow and Gen. Taylor with a stern warning out front: “IF YOU GO IN AND I SEE YOU I WILL KILL.” That sign wasn’t always there, but the house looks like it’s been abandoned since before I started riding down Willow a couple years ago. When I was off the bike, taking the picture, I wondered if my taking this picture was anything akin to “going in,” and if maybe I should hustle out of there. I wonder what’s gone down in the neighborhood to engender this kind of hostility. I continued my ride and passed a woman sitting on her porch only a few houses down. She shouldn’t have to live on a block with this kind of reminder.
