In Kristy’s Head at the Bowling Alley

Day/Time: Saturday night
Setting: Bowling Alley

Surroundings: In the alley to our right, a family of four with two small children. In the alley to our left, a couple in their early twenties.

Kristy out loud (upon getting a gutterball): Dammit, dammit, dammit!
Kristy to herself: Hmm, maybe I should watch my language when there are kids close by.

Guy to my left (upon getting a gutterball): F’in N-word! (Note: He actually said the words.)

Brief pause as Kristy digests his words.

Kristy to herself: Never mind.

Just another Saturday night in J-town.
