the recession, 3rd episode
bykguy2000

part of the curse is
 1
boris must always wear the same oversized black leather jacket
 2
unless its sunday
 3
its sunday
 4
boris is wearing a sky blue hawaiian shirt with orchids
 5
everyone has a right to let lose on the weekend
 6
the vietnamese boy appears again
 7
two older customers run away
 8
initially i thought there was a piece of burnt toast stuck to the boys face
 9
boris explains he was killed by napalm
 10
 
 
another part of the curse is
 11
ghost boy sets up his tv vcr on the blackjack table
 12
and makes us watch tasteless movies
 13
 
 
barn storm
 14
cyberbears
 15
gays on crutches
 16
s.s gigantic
 17
 
 
he likes to make us uncomfortable
 18
until boris feeds him cocaine
 19
its kind of the deus ex machina of the sitcom
 20
 
 
 
 
now comrade
 21
before we get started
 22
the thing about cocaine
 23
is there is never enough cocaine
 24
 
 
 
 
within seconds
 25
ghostie is flying over mars
 26
he puts both hands on the meteor
 27
 
 
back on earth we watch him roll around on the broken bottles surrounding our table
 28
screaming until he becomes a hologram and vanishes
 29
 
 
 
 
how could anyone bathe in water so cold, i ask
 30
 
 
 
 
well
 31
some of us have done some bad things
