It was about 11:45pm.
Damn near midnight.
Dark as hell outside.
And her azz was going running alone.
I was listening to the news the other day and a woman was walking home from her bus stop after work and was sexually assaulted. I thought to myself...wow. I mean...that poor woman HAD to get off that bus and walk home ya know? In my mind...she had no other choice and was probably well aware of the dangers but had to do what she had to do.
I felt so sorry for her.
Back to this lil heffa from last night though...
Nobody HAS to go for a run. I'm sorry...no.
You hear about folks being assaulted and snatched all the time. Hell...they raping men these days so you think your lil narrow azz is safe going out for a run? REALLY????? Mayberry got you that confused?
She had to be from around here somewhere so I know good and well that had she come up missing...I'd hear about it and trust me when I say...I'd be that chick on the news giving her the business cuz seriously? That's not smart!
To quote onefromphilly, "You got to be vigilant out here in these streets!"
Don't do stoopit ish like this. Please. I know I have a lot of friends who run but I swear fo' goodness if I heard of one of them doing some ish like this I'd take a bat to their knee so their running days would be OVER.
Please tell me you've never done this? Hell...I wouldn't even jog WITH someone that time of night. They only gotta catch up with one of you ya know? What? You think your new sneakers are going to make you go "jet fuel fast" like you did in grade school?
Don't do this shit.
