The Life He Almost Lived
This is a true story about my Uncle Cokey that I wrote in his memory. This happened in the 1920s and his parents were peasants from Eastern Europe. I knew another young man, when upon telling his mother what he wanted to do with his life heard her say, "A Pip? You wanna' be a Pip? No, you stick with the job you got. I don't care what Gladys Knight says. No son of mine is going to be a Pip!Pays one point and 2 member cents.
