I was shitfaced. A cop picked me up at 3:00 am, wandering around town.
Hey, you want a ride?
I’m not falling for that!
No really. Get in the car. You can sit in the front.
I got in and looked over my shoulder: there were two black guys in the back.
I thought of this ‘joke’ I’d heard before: if two black guys are in a car, who’s driving? The cop.
It wasn’t my finest hour – but it’s the kind of shit I got away with.
The only difference between me and the people I represent is that they were caught – and I wouldn’t be here today if I had been.
