There is no way on God’s green earth that you are getting those Nikes. You’ve begged your mom. You’ve thought about the possibility of stealing the Nikes, but then how do you explain that to your dad when he gets home from wherever he’s been your whole life?
If you can’t have them, what do you do?
Well, your mom takes you to Walmart and you get to choose between the grey, white, or black Velcros. They’re $9 bucks. They should be $3 at the most. So this is what its come to…
Good luck trying to get to sleep tonight thinking about how you’re going to go about hitting on the girl you are crushing on at school while wearing those dead grandpa shoes.
If this sounds familiar… you grew up poor in America.
