The Raven #2: Bronx Stories

179th and Boston Rd.

Little Kid with a Big Head

We were all playing in the basketball court. The court is gated off on all sides. There was a little boy who was trying to squeeze through the gate. We all figured he would get through, he was slim. But there was a minor problem: He had a big head! Once he got his head through, he couldn’t squeeze the rest of his body through. After to failing to get through many times, he tried to pull his head out of the gate. He couldn’t, his face was turning red, he was hysterical. He was only about five. To make a long story short, the fire department was called. The gate was cut and smaller gates were installed. That’s what he gets for trying to climb through the small gate.
