Don't worry, I didn't get shot.

Yeah, you heard me. Shot.

Let me give you a little 4-1-1, mmk? Sunday, around 12:30 (I really don't know the time, actually, I'm just guessing, but that's beside the point), The Dizzle called me and said,

"BOO! Did you hear? There's been a shooting on Chestnut!!"

(Again, I don't think those were his exact words, but I'm trying to make this story entertaining.)

Wait, what?! SHOOTING? On CHESTNUT?!

Here are three key facts you should know before I continue:

1. Chestnut is just 2 blocks from my house.
2. The Dizzle works ON CHESTNUT and was maybe only a crosswalk or two away from the shooting!
3. Our neighborhood, here in San Francisco, also known as "The Marina," is particularly known for how safe it is, so to have a SHOOTING is quite preposterous if you ask me!

But alas, a shooting.

Our neighborhood looked like this all day Sunday:


APPARENTLY, some guy had a gun and then pistol-whipped some other guy in the head, whilst trying to steal the guy's backpack? Then the cops came and the guy started running away and jumped in some bushes to hide? But then he turned the gun on the cops and then the cops shot the guy? And now the guy is supposedly in critical condition in the hospital? (Clearly I read the news thoroughly and know my facts to a tee.)

Anyway, no casualties were injured (I think), and my main man, V Dizzle, is safe and sound!

So then, of course, I had to bake chocolate chip cookies to calm our nerves and bring us some comfort on this violent-filled day of ours!


...and when I say "bake," I really mean I opened a box of Krusteaz, mixed the powder with an egg, then threw it in the oven for about 12 minutes.

But I'll tell you what.

BOMB. As in bomb dot com. As in I know no one ever says that anymore, but I think we should bring it back, because sometimes something is just really good and that's the only description I can think of.

So there's the first half of my week for ya.

Oh, and also?

Virgin America just released their newest safety video today, and well, my only question is:

HOW AND WHEN CAN I JOIN THEIR DANCE TEAM!?!



(Have I mentioned I love my job?)
