As Regular as a Day in Jail Could Be


SL (undated): It’s about time commissary came.  They two days late, niggas so hungry they around this bitch stealing.  I spent all my money on hooch this week. Candy, ketchup, jelly, and kool-aid so I can get drunk.  Plus, bro birthday 9-11 so we gotta be extra T’d. He across the hall from me so we see and talk every day to each other.  I sent all the merch over to him so they can make it. They will pass it back through the patio door using a chip bag to slide through the door so it can pour into my cup.

Other than niggas jagging off in the middle of the dayroom right beside each other in hopes of the commissary girl glancing, today been regular. As regular as a day in jail could be.

HW: I was just telling people about your recipe for they thought I was crazy for making it.  A lot like what you said, if I can go buy wine why am I wasting my time making hooch? It’s fun for me I guess, a little way I can “taste” a bit of jail life.  Pouring hooch from a chip bag. My goodness, I had no idea how blessed I was to drink PBR from a can.

And ew. Ew ew ew. The guys in the they have no shame?!  Does jail kill your self-esteem. I’m sorry, I don’t mean to be judgmental, but that’s nasty. I just...I want to go tell those guys to find something better to do, you know?

 SL: Yeah it’s nasty.  I don’t know if jail kill your self-esteem but I know cook county jail can kill yo self-esteem when you been here for years and years.  (There’s a ton of text scratched out here).  Fuck this post cuz IDK.  I’m not tryna say I’m with it but I’m not against it cuz its not what you do but how you do it.  Them dudes was just fronting they shit but it be like that sometimes.  I went through my phase of clappin so who am I to talk about the next person doin it
