A party that occurs between the 1st and 15th
of each month, often in the summer. All the welfare recipients in the neighborhood
come together and groove
to car stereo tunes outside, while their children
are running around with nobody watching
them, shoeless, and fighting with sticks. For a real shindig all the food stamp
(EBT) cards are pulled together for porterhouse steaks, delicate shrimps, and the most elegant
cheese balls you will find. Of course followed up by "red" Kool-Aid, natural ice, and watermelon.
Keke: Daddy can we go over
