I live under I-565, sometimes at the Oakwood Avenue exit. What a wonderful place I have here. I eat your family’s going-out-to-eat leftovers from the fast-food dumpsters, hopefully before the rats get to it. If I'm hungry enough, the rat eaten stuff ain't that bad either... especially if it's still room temperature and not frozen solid and stuck together by what looks to be mayonnaise. That's the worst part of cold freezing weather - frozen dumpster munchies stuck together and un-chewable until it defrost in your mouth. That and my fingers & toes getting frost bitten. I spend all that super easy $25/hour $50,000/year (oh yea) bumming money on my daily fix $1/can of gold spray paint for huffing... because it makes me feel so much better - like I'm behind the wheel of a large automobile, or in a beautiful house with a beautiful wife... and then the buzz wears off and I ask myself, well, how did I get under this exit ramp? Thanks for your handouts - it's what helps buy the solvents I need to inhale and suppress the god awful memories of my little league coaches and scoutmasters abuse, and it gives me the will to keep on living. Thank you good people of Huntsville and God Bless you all!!
