Some of you knew already. Some of you didn't. But now all of you will know. I found a new residence near Brooklyn College. I will begin paying rent there February first, exactly 13 months after moving into my current residence in the Heights.
Why are you moving out?
I want to get out of the ghetto.
But aren't you moving into another ghetto?
Yeah, but it's a ghetto where not everyone knows my name, history, and which city my grandfather urinated in. (It was Nevel.)
Why'd you choose this location?
It was cheap.
How much less than your current abode?
Negative 100 dollars a month.
Listen, if you don't understand negative numbers, I'd be thrilled to tutor you for a nominal fee.
Are you transferring to Brooklyn College?
I dunno. It'll be painful to pass the Brooklyn College campus every day while walking to the subway station for an hour-long ride. But I like City College. I dunno.
We'll miss you in Crown Heights!
The feelings are mutual. I shall come by to visit.
