The oldies station is playing Michael Jackson, “Rock with You”. I was just a little kid when he died, but I remember Nails crying and Rooster trying his best not to laugh at her, which is the most you might expect from him.
Man, the most talented people are the ones who are also the most messed up. The guy could sing like there was no tomorrow, but if Nails was to be believed, his personal life was an entirely different story. “He liked the little boys,” she said between sobs. “He was a freak.”
Freak, always one of Nails’ favorite words. There have been so many times I’ve wanted to ask her if she sees me as a freak, but I’m terrified of the answer.
