The Ville

Yesterday i went to Davis Square in Somerville with an FTM (female to male) friend. We met up at the Diesel Cafe, but i asked him if he minded going someplace else to eat. We decided to go to Redbones. It is a Texas type BBQ place that is supposed to be the best BBQ restaurant in all of Massachusetts. i've heard people talk about it before. A nurse i really liked when i was in the hospital said that the artwork downstairs at the restaurant reminded her of my art, so we sat downstairs. However, i did not really see the resemblance to my art, other than that it was colorful. They served us cornbread and butter and our drinks came in big jar's. I had chicken with mashed potatoes, broccoli and mac and cheese. It was good. i tried one of my friend's ribs. It was a little undercooked for my liking, but it was quite tasty.

Afterwards, we were standing on the corner talking, and this gangster kid/guy came up to me and asked me for a cigarette. I gave him one and he said "thank you. i'm actually a woman you know". and i said "cool". i don't think he was an FTM, but it seemed interesting that he would say that to 2 FTMs... like he could tell something about us, but he didn't say it in a rude way at all. Then my friend and i got a soda at the Diesel Cafe, and on my way to my car i ran into the kid again. He came up to me and said "Do you have a square?" (which means cigarette on the streets of Boston) i said "no, i don't have any left" and he said "okay. cuz i'm actually a gargoyle. if you look up at a building some day you will see me" i said "cool" and he walked away. The gargoyle statement didn't make as much sense as him saying to us that he was a woman. Oh well. he seemed like a cool shit. a little crazy obviously, but cool.

So you are a Bostonian I take it. I used to live in Conn. Visit R.I. and Mass all the time. I spent time in Brockton,Mass with a bunch of metal kids and went to Boston for shows when this old band called The MArch would play up there. I also experienced the stinkiest urinal in the known universe in a pub restroom under a lattice work of freeway overpasses somewhere in some old Irish neighborhood.

If someone asked for a square in this neck of the woods I don't think they'd be referring to a ciggerette. I quit. Man. All yesterday I just wanted one SO bad even though it's been months. 0.o

i would like to quit but i just don't know if i can do it. i hope someday i can.
and yeah, most people around here don't even know what a square is. it's very much street lingo

Never heard of the 'square'...funny.. you do meet some strange guys... or whatever! makes life interesting, and the restaurant too, it makes our little hick town Hotels seem tame... although if I wrote about the characters there I suppose they might be funny too... Great, enjoy every day, as every day is precious.

as i was saying to mcpia (also from australia) in this thread, most people, even in the boston area don't know what a square is. it's mostly used by street kids and gangsters. and i think just in the boston area, but i dunno.
but yeah, i had a nice time and i do meet some strange people (:
