In my neighborhood, you hear dogs barking,
see people standing on the corner of the street,
barbeque is in the air,
kids yelling and screaming at the top of their lungs,
somebody fighting,
somebody getting arrested (even teenagers) for whatever reason,
buying movies and entertainment off the streets,
so many people saying, “hi, how’s your day,” or even somebody getting somebody’s number, these are all the typical things that can happen in my neighborhood on a regular, normal day.
