Thank you Alex for visiting and commenting on, "I Don't Want to Go to the Bronx" In response to your statement, perhaps there is a meaning underlying that may say, "sometimes getting your own way backfires?" OR "Be careful for what you wish for?"...OR?
That was a generous thing to say about my piece, Alex. Thank you.
