Bookj ournal - Ham on rye - P. 5- 35
Henry Jrs father has two brothers, Ben and John, both alcoholics.
Ben is the younger brother, only twenty-four years old and dying.
But Henry doesn't like Ben because he borrowed a lot of money from Emily, Henry Jrs grandma, and wasted it on gambling, women and booze.
Henry doesnt like Leonard either; actually, he doesnt like people at all, especially not children.
Henry's other brother, John, has a family with his wife Anna. Together they have two daughters.
Their family is suffering economically because John is wasting their money on booze and bikes, a dangerous combination.
Henry Jr. has now started school. Hes lonely, but that's the way he wants it to be.
But one day a new boy started in his class, David was his name, and no one really liked him.
Henry Jr. didn't want to become his friend either, but he really liked the potato chips David brought to school everyday, so he thought it was okay anyway.
David was a nerd and a mamas boy who took violin lessons and always got into trouble.
Now when Henry. Jr was his friend... sort of; he also became a victim for bullying.
One day Henry Jr. got knocked down by an American football.
Everybody circled around him, they pointed and laughed and said the meanest things.
Henry Jr. understood that the ball was meant for him, somebody had kicked the ball with purpose on the back of his head.
He had enough and asked who did it. Somebody said it was Billy. Billy was a fat boy, nicer then the most, but still a part of their gang.
He decided to beat that boy up, and so he did, and how he did it. He hit him behind the left ear and in the stomach, he fell to the ground. When he stood up once again Henry Jr. punched him on his mouth, and Billy was finished.
