  • My parents got a call from the principal. The principal told them that I had punched a kid in the face today. When a got home, my parents were furious.

  • But I didn’t punch anybody!” I protested. “The principal just hates me!” My parents were not convinced and sent me to my room. I stuck headphones in and cranked my music loud. It wasn’t fair. Why didn’t they believe me? Of course, I DID punch someone, but it was super justified.

  • If you were in my shoes, you would have done the exact same thing. The guy kept saying, "Damn Daniel with the white Vans" and although I do like white sneakers, my name is NOT Daniel. So yeah. I hit him alright. I don't even feel bad. It's not like I kicked him or whatever.

  • Besides, he had it coming. I wasn’t even wearing Vans, I was wearing Converse. I admit, it’s a personal pet peeve when people mix them up. You might say “well, that doesn’t seem like a good reason to hit someone,” but you have to understand...

  • you can’t spell “Converse” without “Con”. That’s what I am, an ex-con, and reformed con man. I’m trying to keep my nose clean, but it’s hard when people insult my kicks.

  • And with a brief jazz-hand gesture, he performed a 540­° pirouette on his right heel, allowed a slim gloss cane to slide down from his sleeve into his grip and chicken-walked away, his gum rubber soles silent on the tired sidewalk, accompanied only by the jarred click of his cane
