Now that it’s done and over with, I am glad that my bunky forewarned me about our trip to the gym after all. When they unlocked all of our cells for lunch today they said that everyone had to leave so that they could spray chemicals for bugs. They do this every three months. I’m thankful every day that God has blessed me with a good bunky that knows about my life situation and cares about my safety and well-being. On our way to Chow my first time going back to the cafeteria in over three months Dwayne my bunky reassured me that I had nothing to worry about in the Chow Hall, or even in the gym for that matter. He said that he will always have my back. I thanked him for the encouragement and told him that I would never ask him to resort to violence for me, and that if something like that was going to happen I knew that God would see me through it. Nonetheless, it felt very good to have the one man in here that I trust to take away some of the anxiety of being in a room the size of a regular high school gymnasium with hundreds of inmates, shoulder to shoulder, Dwayne remained at my side for the 2 1/2 hours we were stuck in there, and now we’re both back in our cell, safe and sound. Arriving back in my nest without a scratch feels like I just completed a 10K run, whew!
