Gymnasium Redux

by Andy Blackmore (author's profile)





I'm on a roll here... More blogging!

When der state changed the law in order to assist itself with overcrowding - they unfortunately passed the buck to counties. In the process though, they have been able to pull out the E-bunks and return our gym's to their intended purposes.

It's kind of weird going to the gym now and standing where I used to sleep. Instead of a cavernous black cesspool, the place is open, bright, cheery, and useful.

There are games to play, good ventilation, the showers and toilets are clean... It's just...WRONG!

My 'home' has been changed and it's weird. I doon't much care for 'cell-living'... I'm somewhat feral, so enclosed spaces bug me. I liked the gym, even with it's sickness, filth and degradation. It had a white-trash ambience, ghetto charm.

You could get a burritos -hot and toasty at 2am. You could get into a game 24-7. You could find any type of thing you'd need at any time of the day. It was surreal, it was loud, it was one-of-a-kind.

Now it's a badminton/volleyball/basketball court. Weird!

Happy Thoughts
