Read full description of the books:
I must confess I've read precious little Angelou in my time, but I'll never forget the day she tipped me $20.
It was some random gray day in Marquette, Michigan, must've been the winter of '00, and I was washing dishes as usual at the downtown Landmark Inn. Someone tapped me on the shoulder and said, "hey, there's a VIP coming in, put on your bellboy hat and head out front." I didn't put on my bellboy hat because I didn't have one — just the same dirty, drenched apron I wore every day in that year or two between high school and college, at least whenever I wasn't sitting in my shitty little apartment, or wasting time and brain cells someplace else.
Stepping out into the sub-zero winds, I saw before me the fanciest tour bus I'd ever seen in my whole entire life. Even to this day, I've never seen a better one. In fact, the only thing fancier than the bus itself was the mink coat on the elderly black woman exiting it, and I'll never forget the words she mumbled to my wet, skinny ass, there on the frozen sidewalk of my youth:
"Boy, you'll catch yo' death out here..."
If I'd remained outdoors another half hour or so, I suppose I may've proven her right, but instead I hauled her six or seven massive bags inside, into the elevator, and up to her room on the fifth (?) floor.
Maya Angelou gave me $20, and I never even read her fucking book.
What an asshole I am...
