North Hollywood Shootout
I learned from an Uber driver yesterday that I'm currently about three blocks from the scene of the crime. I remember it well and at the time I thought how oddly appropriate that it happened in Hollywood since to me it looked like a movie. But in this movie they were using real bullets--an estimated 2,000 of them, and real blood.
There was a movie made about it (of course there was) but it couldn't compare to the real-time news footage.
Anywayyyyy, I was close to having a smoke yesterday, paying for an Arizona iced tea and peering over the cashier's shoulder at the cigarettes on display....
I could almost hear them calling out to me, "Come on, one more won't kill you!"
Actually it might. Maybe that's the attitude I need to adopt. The next one just might be the final nail in the coughin'. Pun intended. Today is 16 days.
