Yesterday I brave 5oclock traffic to get over there on east 7th. The lady in front of me orders a Scrimps basket. She's black and I just chuckle to myself. Not cuz she's black but because I myself say shromp (the coonass way) and other people I know say scrimps and she was just being herself.
The black lady at the counter was like, you want a what?
SCRIMPS basket. I want a SCRIMP BASKET.
I'm sorry but i dont....
and the other black lady fryin up the chicken hollers She wanna shrimp basket
the counter girl says a SHRIMP basket? and looks at the lady funny. And she says yeah. scrimps.
And I just chuckle and chuckle.
