So A new crew came on shift today. the Head driller's name is Tony. He's been to Prison 4 times: in Rhode Island, Colorado, Utah, and Maine. For no less than 11 years.
How do I know all this? because he keeps a prison notebook. he showed it to me. He's actually a great artist, or at least he can draw really well. He has a whole notebook of the prison guards at the various places he's stayed (see above). The last page of his notebook had a picture of calendar months all laid out in this grid pattern, with at least 11 years worth of months. I was really impressed. it was almost cliche, you know? this guy, who's been in and out of prison for years, works manual labor as a driller, is also a really gifted artist. Had there been some other stimulus in his life, he may have been a very financially and socially successful person.
right after he showed me, he stood over and strattled the space heater in the doghouse and said really loud "hey, I'm warming my ballsac!"
As an aside, he also told my coworker Dave that the biggest dick he ever saw was on a 5'2" mexican in the rhode island showers. "and it wasn't all the warm water either!"
