I was a "Johnny" in my own mind, but in reality was an angel compared to the other kids who were def. Johnny's and Jessica's. Whoo-boy! In my mind, I didn't want to be an outsider in school, so I was pretty "worldly" is HS (I was the funny kid, I cursed, nobody knew until I knocked on their door. Hell I was in the JW closet!) and I always looked to these other kids as they were always looked upon so favorably.
"Why don't you go out in the field with Johnny?"
I was always paired with Johnny. Johnny was suppose to teach me to do right. Johny was suppose to make sure I became a good lil' witness.
Johny would get to the door and say, "We're Bible student would you like to read this?" No scripture (And a few years ago you were admonished to whip that bible out and read a scripture!), not even waiting for them to say yes or no, he was already turned around and moving on so he could move on to the next house and get the job over with. And between houses he would ask me who I thought has the best "a$$" in the KH.
He told me he thought my mom did. he would then take me to get lunch and blast the most hardcore rap songs of all time, where the n-word was blasted every other 3 word and the F-word every 6th. He drove fast, gave people the finger and told me that it had been a while and he needed to f*ck something soon or he was gonna die.
I wanted to kill Johnny as much as I wanted to be Johnny. Johnny got one of the other girls in the KH pregnant; he denied it and of course since she was a "Jessica", it's not like there weren't others who could have been on that line up for a Maury Povich episode. Johnny johnny johnny.
I do know kids who buy it all and I was torn from my somewhat Johnnyness and my desire to do good and be good and be accepted (hell, sometimes I still am).
Johnny, i hear is out and is with all sorts of folk. Don't know if he's happy or not (since I ultimately thnk thats what matters the most) but lord knows Johnny has had a wild ride. Lucky bastard.
