I’m still here. 

Just wanted to write quick post to anyone who still follows this blog that I’m still here.  This site is still my homepage on my laptop and bookmarked on my phone. I haven’t did anything creative since January (YouTube video). Mainly because of my weight and my struggle to get back in shape. My body has a big affect on my mind. But besides that, losing two key relationships on here discouraged me from posting consistently. Namely Chanita. I still think about her. But no use in trying to reach out again. I have always posted st least once a month since I started but last month was the first time I didn’t. This month is without a post as well (this is temporary). I plan on still making a birthday post and backdating it. Hope I can get my creativity back. I feel worthless. 

Moving Mannequins

Semi-biographical

FADE IN

EXT. AVENUE – NIGHT

A man steps off the bus, wearing glasses, hoodie over his head, backpack on his chest. As he is getting closer to his destination, he sees 3 white men wearing yellow shirts with ‘Event Staff’ on the back. A couple of feet away from them, he sees a black guy trying to get their attention. The man steps off the sidewalk when he crosses paths with the Event Staffers, as they were obstructing his path.

EVENT STAFFER 1

How you doing, sir?

THE MAN

EVENT STAFFER 2

(whispering)

His hand.

EVENT STAFFER 3

(whispering)

See.

He steps back on the sidewalk and crosses the black guy.

BLACK GUY

You got your glasses on, don’t it?

THE MAN

BLACK GUY

Aye, one of them white boys called you a Ni**er! You heard it? I know you heard it, bruh.

THE MAN

The man stops walking and looks up at the high-rise building to his left and sees someone peeking out their blinds. They exchange glares for 5 seconds then the man continues walking.

DISSOLVE 

The black guy wanders aimlessly in a nearby park. He hears leaves crunching behind him. He turns around and sees 3 people jogging along the track. He notices they are wearing bright yellow shirts. He thinks they chose that color to help them be seen, as the park doesn’t have light poles. As they get closer, the black guy steps to the side to clear the trail. But when they cross his path, they stop and beat him within an inch of his life. Before they vanish, they place a cellphone in his palm.When the man regains consciousness a few minutes later, he calls 911. 

An aerial camera view shows 3 police cars pull up to the house where the 3 white men were doing event staffing. As the 3 white guys are getting arrested, an ambulance speeds by, presumably on their way to the park or rushing the black guy to the hospital. 

The aerial camera view turns out to be the POV from a balcony of a high-rise apartment building nearby. A man is sitting on a bench with a mannequin on his left and right side. All 3 are wearing yellow shirts. He holds a pair of binoculars to each mannequins eyes so they can see the events going on below. He pretends one of the mannequins says something to him.

THE MAN

I don’t need binoculars. I got glasses, don’t it? Bob, hand me that wet towel so I can get this shit off my face, will you? Gimme that! And Tom, why do you still have your hands on my hips? Get off!

He disconnects something that conjoined them. The man grabs the towel from the mannequin’s hands and takes a swipe at his forehead, revealing darker skin. He was wearing white make-up. He then throws the towel on the camera lens.

FADE IN

INT. TAX OFFICE – NIGHT

Flatulence. Tax Man quietly reads the ingredients on the back of a Babe Ruth. As he unwraps the candy, it falls between his thighs, in the toilet. He jumps up. 

TAX MAN

Oh shit! Which one is which? 5 second rule, 5 second rule, 5 second rule. 4, 3, 2, THIS ONE! Yup, yup, roasted pea-

Tax Man hears knocking on the store’s door. He investigates.

CUSTOMER

Y’all closed? 

TAX MAN

No sir! We open. Just had the door locked while I was in the back.

CUSTOMER

[pulls handle] You gonnnneee … open it?

TAX MAN

[looks at watch. It’s 8PM. He notices the customer doesn’t have papers in his hand. He looks back at the customer’s car and sees a woman in the driver seat. She smiles. He smiles back.] Yeah, I’m gone open it. What is wrong with me? So how can I help you today?

CUSTOMER

I was wondering could y’all print off my 2013 W2.

TAX MAN

I’m new, and not sure. Let me make a call to my supervisor. Hold on!

SUPERVISOR

Hello.

TAX MAN

Yeah, I got a customer who wants to print off his 2013 W2. Is that in my abilities?

SUPERVISOR

I could walk you through it over the phone, but it’s gone take over 20 minutes. It’s best he goes to another location. Ask him does he live in the area.

TAX MAN

Sir, do you stay around the neighborhood?

CUSTOMER

Yeah.

TAX MAN

Yeah.

The SUPERVISOR gives the TAX MAN directions to a nearby store. Like something whispered into the thousandth ear, the TAX MAN says the directions wrong, which prompts the SUPERVISOR to say … 

SUPERVISOR

May I talk to him?

TAX MAN

Uhhh … yeah.

When TAX MAN hands CUSTOMER his phone, he turns around and walks towards the door, as if leaving. 

TAX MAN

*thinking* The hell?!?!

TAX MAN walks ahead CUSTOMER and stands to the side of the entrance in an inconspicuous fighting stance. CUSTOMER stops and talks to the SUPERVISOR. As he is getting the directions, he constantly smiles and says, “Yes mam.”  Anticipating the end of their conversation, the TAX MAN continuously raises his hand to get his phone back. 

CUSTOMER

Okay, thank you.

CUSTOMER hands TAX MAN his phone and walks out. TAX MAN immediately locks door. After the TAX MAN watches the car pull out the parking lot, he presses and holds the home button on his phone. 

TAX MAN

Siri, why didn’t you tell me to put it on speakerphone? I almost had to punch that guy!

SIRI

Okay! Here’s what I found on the web for ‘What did big girl put in Snickers home how old is Tupac dead guy.’
