Me and my cousin, Vanita, went to Underground Atlanta today so she could buy some really cute jeans. Well, on the way we stop at a jewelry store that was advertising grills for cheap and quick. While we are in there checking out the prices, a guy comes in the store talking very loudly about selling us some herb. Apparently since we both wear locs and I had on a camouflage jacket - we MUST be Rastas. The dealer said as much. He also assured us that that Asian owners smoked as well - so they didn't mind the sale. Vanita and I ignored him and he finally left, confused.
When we walked out the store a crackhead holds out two beautiful bracelet and necklace sets that will go great with the chains I wear. He is only charging $20 for each set. Although I usually refrain from buying hot items, this, I couldn't pass up. I am thinking $20? - what a great deal! But knowing that he was a crack head - I figured I could get him to lower the price. So I got both sets for $20! I was so hyped about the deal. I called my mom. She immediately informed me that it wasn't real. "But he put a lighter to it and tried to scrape it with a knife - it even SAYS 14-karat gold!", I insisted. Hoping my mother was wrong, I asked two jewelers about it. They told me that it wasn't real. It was plated.
I guess I will just wear them until they (or my neck) turn green. That's what I get for buying stolen goods from a crack-head.
