What Is Prison Life Like?

From Dances With Thugs by Joseph Dickey (author's profile)


What Is Prison Life Like?

I get asked this question alot by friends and family. The best way to paint you
a picture is by imagining and/or trying the following:

Room mates

Go down to the local bus station and randomly choose someone getting off the bus.
Take that person home with you and live in your bathroom. :)


Turn your t.v. to your favorite program. Also turn 3 different radios to 3 different
stations (I suggest country, Hip Hop and Spanish). Try to hear your program then 10
minutes before it is over, have someone change the channel. Perhaps have two people
fight in your living room over the changing of the channel.


Spinkle your shower floor with various hair types obtain from a local hair salon,
place a few band-aids on the floor which may be from someone with hepatitis or HIV
then enjoy a cold or luke-warm shower while trying to avoid stepping on the items
mentioned above.


Try to speak with a friend while you have at least 10 other people using every foul
word known to man in various forms to describe everyday events. Or... Talk to your
87 year old mother on the phone while words she most likely has never heard in person
is screamed in the background.

That my friends... is what prison life is like. :)

well ole Flo looks like you described that pretty well . don't forget about the shower being practically open to everyone. and after the big bus ride oh my so true . there are some weird people there . and even weirder roommates.

stay strong in there. i know it's tough.
