At a conference shortly after the OJ verdict, I was sushed by my friend for making anti-OJ comments in line: I was the only white there. Conchran refused to make eye contact with me.

Taught a computer science class that was entirely focused on “Miiiiiiiiiiiiiiiicrosoft EXL”. It was an 8 o’clock class after my overnight security shift, and that phrase always woke me right up. For a couple minutes.

The glue of our family, the one that made us all be respectful. Laughed until the tears ran silently down his face. “I’m standing strong now, cause I once sat on your knee.”

Spent most of my childhood with her; she loved me more than my mother was capable of. All she wanted from me was to get married and have babies. She saw the first.
