Bazooka. (Part One)

A boy with a rather unusual nickname shares his story.

My name is Tydon Demetrius Graves, but 'most everyone I know calls me "Bazooka".

I am 15 years old and live with my family in Oak Grove, Illinois.  

I live with my parents and two younger brothers.  My brothers are named Jaime Diego and Donatello Marquis; they are 11 and 7.  I'm the oldest kid, as you can see.  It's a pain in my ass, especially when I have to watch over Jaime.  You see, he is disabled.  He cannot walk and is in a wheelchair.  Jaime was born with brain damage.  

I love Jaime, don't get me wrong; but he isn't much fun because he can't do anything but just sit there in his wheelchair and drool all over the place.  It's really gross!

When I am not at school (or watching my brothers), I like to hang out with my friends, play b-ball (both basketball and baseball), play futbol (soccer), go online on my computer (Facebook, YouTube, and MySpace are my three hangout sites I visit most often), play video games, and write stories.  In addition, I like to sing and go to Mass.  (We're Catholic.)

I don't like country music (give me rock or rap ANY day of the week!), reading, doing homework (what kid DOES like doing homework? I know I don't!!), having to watch my brothers (especially Jaime!), or cold weather and snow.  (Give me hot sunny weather!!)

I don't know how I really ended up with the nickname of "Bazooka", but I think it's 'cause I love Bazooka bubble gum; always have, ever since I was a real little kid barely out of kindergarten.  

Well, I guess I'll go.  School tomorrow.  Just got back from Mass, and I'm tired.  It's been a long day.  Raked leaves today and brother-sat (Jaime was okay, but I wish he could do more for himself!) and then went to Mass two times (once this morning, and again this evening).  Mama likes us to go to Mass; she says that it might keep us out of trouble if we think 'bout what we do or if we think about God.  I guess that's a good thing, really! :)

Until later, so long!  I will write in here again!

~Tydon ("Bazooka").  :)
