Eduardo Challenged Tommy to a Street Duel

    Newer Older

    I dunno what Tommy did to offend Eduardo... there wasn't time to ask... but when I turned around there was a face off and a camera phone came out of Eduardo's pocket in a flash!

    The streets can turn mean in a moment!

    It seemed that Eduardo had challenged Tommy to a photographic duel to the death while I was keeping lookout for the angry crackheads in the cab.

    Even the panhandler was drawn to the action on the street.

    Eduardo bravely stood his ground like a veteran matador... Tommy fearlessly stood his ground too.

    It was obvious that neither of these men would back down.

    You could cut the tension with a knife.

    Thankfully no one seemed to have one.

    Chi-Town on a Saturday night!

    Eduardo had much machismo... but he couldn't get off a shot as Tommy went guns blazin' and fired off frame after frame!

      I am in awe of your narrative skills, I can't stop laughing. That was soooooo well done

      Thank you Housework! I seem to live a very funny life and I feel it would be quite selfish for me to be stingy and just laugh at myself... or with myself... or at 'Eduardo'...

      But mostly I just do it to amuse myself.

      I'm glad you enjoyed it!

      And I'm glad you're enjoying that new camera!

      I will always admire 'Eduardo.'

      Thank you Brandy! I've always been pretty good at making smart ass comments (so I've been told... like a million times) but it's a lot of fun to add images to my smart ass comments.

      It's like a whole 'nother dimension of smart assedness I've never experienced before!

      I'm really happy that you enjoy it.

      I wanna use my gift of smart assedness to make the world a better place!

      Hey thanks Angel! It's pretty cool that with the miracle of modern technology you can hang out with ne'erdowells without the threat of injury or arrest.

      That dude 'Eduardo'... he was a madman!
