On the way home from picking up my daughters from work, I noticed that three of the guys involved in the brawl I wrote about yesterday were in the alley. So I sent the girls upstairs and told them I was going to talk to them. "what are you going to say?" they asked, and I told them I was just going to say sorry. My youngest was scared that it might not go so well, and to be honest, I was a bit worried myself.
I approached the three and said, "Hey, I just wanted to say sorry for the other night. I just really wanted you to stop fighting, but I shouldn't have threatened you guys"
One of them said, "no problem"
Another said, "it was a family thing, it was stupid, we should be apologizing to you. You don't want that shit near your home"
Then the tall skinny one said, "My name is Joshua, I live here, I am your neighbor"
And I introduced myself. I made a few friends I think, and God in his grace didn't make me suffer much for my stupidity.
