Tell us the Good Stuff!
Happy Mother's Day from Tupac and a Coney Island story to go with it!
I was leaving Coney Island last Sunday and one of the game vendors encouraged me to come over, with the old come on. "You will win no matter what."
So I figured being a sport and I liked the guy right away I'll play along with the game.
I used to play basketball way back in high school, but no more, and he said, "No, problem, if you get three baskets in you win a prize. Of course, he let me stand right in front of the net. I asked him if I have to get all the balls in a row to win. And he said, "No, problem, you are going to win anyway."
I went for it, and getting all the balls in the net in a row, I said, "So, now do I get a little bird under the counter because I knew it was a set up and I wasn't going to get a big prize on display.
But boy was I fooled when he said, "Are you a mother?" And I said "No, but my ireporter friends are. And he pulled out something very special that warmed my heart, the pillow shown that said I love you. Then he told me, "Well this is for all of you.. Happy Mother's day!" And I felt like I won the biggest prize, and this is what it must feel like to be a mother!
Of course, Tupac made the pillow his own right away when I got it home, but then I knew what to do, Post it for Mother's day..
I want to see this vender again and if possible show him this post. In the meantime you can find him on one of the side streets in front of the Wonder wheel.
