I have a question:

How do YOU see me?

Why I ran?

The short answer is… I didn’t want to go to jail! DUH!!!

The long answer is…

The summer I came back to new orleans, my family was in the middle of a block war with the family that lived across the street. I don’t know why they were beefing, but we came up in a “if 1 fight we all fight” type family. So one night we were all outside on opposing sides of the street. 6 or 7 of them and maybe 5 of us. Well between bathroom breaks and parents calling folks in…. it ended up being 3 of them and me and my lil cousin. Well they seized the opportunity and jumped me. And I was stabbed in the head and over the eye.

This only escalated the fights. We had police patrolling our block every hour on the hour b/c they knew my family would retaliate. I couldn’t fight b/c of my stitches. So I was pretty much home bound. But if anyone knows me, they know I can be vindictive. So every time I saw one of them I’d tell them I was gonna fuck them up SOON as my stitches were out.

Stitches came out…school started… and I finally started to see them on their own. (After the stabbing they were always together mob deep). I saw the one that stabbed me go into a bathroom alone. I went in behind her, grabbed her head and pushed her into the brick wall. Knocked her out and 1 of her front teeth.

One weekend I’m walking to the corner store w/ my cousin and we saw one of the sisters and a cousin. So we started fighting and the sister pulls the knife out but loses her footing. She fell and when she hit the ground the knife fell free. I started stomping her in the face and chest. Then we heard sirens….

My cousin grabbed me and we ran.

I ran b/c I didn’t want to go to jail. Lol

  1. Stabbed in the head? Knocking people out and giving their grills the Jack O’Lantern treatment? You violent as hell and I’m from Detroit so that’s saying something.

    If I ever want a chick stomped retarded because she wouldn’t give me any can I call you? What? It’s a perfectly good reason to me. Sharing is caring and chicks that don’t share are mean. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.

    Let me stop playing. I don’t want to run afoul of the Blog Enforcer, Patrice Capone. LOL.

  2. You never found out what started all that? I’m down for if 1 fight we all fight, but imma really need to know the reason!

    I see you as a real woman who is not ashamed of where she’s from or who she is, but won’t be defined by it either. I firmly believe that “hood sense” is just as useful as “common sense” (maybe more).

  3. LAWD you so damn violent! LOL

    How do “I” see you? OWIUEROIUEHDFHDSJKFHLKDSJHFLUHDFIUWEYROEIYRIOUWEYRKJDFHSKDJHF

    That’s cuz I don’t want everyone else to know! LMAO!!!

  4. Oh, I didn’t answer how did I see you. I see you as Patrice. You do you, just like everyone else do them. The difference is you tell it like it is and some may not.

  19. I’m having visuals of you yelling out the living room window at the neighbors…..”Bitch, I bet’not catch yo ass slippin”….LOL! The more I read your blog, the more you remind me of my cousin. I used to tell people that if they went out with her to keep their head on a swivel cuz you never know when something’s gonna pop off.

    I see you as straight up, no chaser. You are someone that will tell it like it is….good, bad or indifferent. That is a good quality to have even when those on the receiving end don’t *want* to hear it. We need more people like you.

  20. LMAO @ you threatening to kick @ss as soon as you healed up.

    Damn @ them jumping you while you were with lil’ cuz and resorting to stabbing you *GASP*.

    That’s a straight up bitch move right there.

    Besides, it’s not like they were outnumbered so I don’t understand why it had to go beyond throwin’ the hands.

    I see you as being mad cool…
    Funny as hell [LOL]
    I know you got a soft side [hell we all do]
    but you definitely come across as not to be f**ked with!
