    asylum escapees

    we used to paint a yard that was near an insane asylum. one night while we were painting an ssw hopper, this guy that we thught was a bum, came running down the tracks towards us. we ducked under the train and waited for him to run past, but he saw us. he dove under the train next to us and started asking us what we were hiding from. we told him - him! and he said "me to" then started telling us about the king size ants that were chasing him. he had blood all over his shirt and face. we asked what happened and he said the ants cornered him so he climed over a barbed wire fence and got all cut up. he hung out with us the whole night, and kept talking about the ants. a few times he ran into the bushes because he thought he saw more ants. we felt bad leaving him because we didn't want him to get hit by a train, but what could we do. he was crazy. it was a funny experience though.

    One time myself and a partner of mine went to this layup spot......
    I post so he paints first and this guy comes walking around the hillside/corner/bend we see him coming and he has a backpack on........... Writer??
    No probably not.......... he sits down about 15 feet from the tracks
    next to a wall of some sort. He's crouched like a major league baseball catcher..... huh?? My friend kept painting and I figured I'd approach the guy and diffuse the situation if he's some violent hero guy........so here goes!!! I tried talking to him and all I got was "You guys are going to get caught you know?" Like "how" I'm thinking........ turns out he'd been to our spot like a week before and he'd bumped into some other kids there painting that we had no clue about.........he asked me if I got high?!?!
    I figured a little mary jane ya know?? My reply: "Sorry partner just a drinker............." so much for the mary jane theory.......
    'cause this fool started smoking a rock with me sitting two feet from his basehead ass!!! I told my friend that this crackhead was tripping me out with all this "snitch" talk so he finished and we left and I did not paint because of a good 'ol NW crackhead!!!!!!!!!

    Not the best story but oh well........... :confused:

    NW crackheads are the best! One asked me for a quarter once, I asked him to dance for it...I spent the next 5 min running from his out of breath ass.
