Just Who Is Double Wide?

Good question. For the last four years, the rental property across the street has been inhabited by a somewhat revolving cast of characters, but anchored by a trailer trash kid attending the local university. I call him Double Wide, because he seems to lack the requisite knowledge of how to live in a house, instead living his days as if he was in a trailer park. I have gone from irritation to resignation to, currently, intrigued pleasure at his daily antics. As long as he lives there—and, if he hasn't graduated or flunked out after four years, who knows how long he'll be able to stay a student—I will document his activities as they demonstrate his trailer trash lifestyle. Obviously, I have four years of stories to post, so these first few weeks should be rather rich in Double Widey-goodness.

Hey, Hookworm! When are we going to get to the Double-Widey Goodness?

Dear Sir,
I must express sadness at the lack of what you refer to as 'double-widey goodness'. Where are these promised stories, good sir? Some of us have already lost faith in mankind.

Sincerely,
Father Dick Gozinya
