If you live in Boyle Heights and you hear a really loud noise downstairs in your apartment, please don’t worry your friend and tell her it sounds like a “loud pop.” Don’t make her think that there are gangbangers running around your backyard shooting their guns. Don’t tell her that you hear sirens and helicopters and more gunshots. Don’t get her all worried to the point where she’s not sure if you are still alive since your instant messages are several minutes apart..
Last, don’t tell her at the end of this mini-emergency and supposed shootout that you just remembered that earlier you had removed a frozen two liter soda bottle from the freezer and put it in the fridge. The bottle had exploded like a bomb. There were no gangbangers, just a messy fridge.
