It Keeps Coming

Posted by Simbi Laveau , 17 September 2012 · 391 views

My big crush in grammar school....BB .My mom was appalled.
He was a cocky 11 year old ...his hair was below his ears. Oh ! Blasphemous .

Went all through grammar and HS with him .
My crush dissipated in JHS .

At one point,he ended up in an iconic NYC punk band .Then he was a diamond dealer .Later,he worked with the FDNY .

Within the nyc punk community ,he was pretty much out of the loop ,for decades ,but not forgotten .

He got married a few years ago .Has a baby girl now. 1 year old .

Diagnosed with pancreatic cancer .....just had surgery . Hard to get in touch with him....
Some old punk compadres are doing a benefit for him .

I got the call today . We do not forget our own .

While hearing all this,found out another old punk pal, is in remission from hodgkins lympoma....

:(

It all just boggles my mind . It's surreal to me. All I see is that little kid running up the auditorium aisle ....all cocky ,all those years ago .

Cocky little kid.......



My other best pals mom ,fell ,and broke her hip, Friday .Had surgery yesterday . He's pretty upset .
Not sure how this will turn out.

I'm not having a good week,is all I can say .
