I used to be quite poor and street-smart when I was younger and then my Dad married a really middle class woman, so I've lived both worlds :O
i don't even have common sense
I'm from a sprawling, very streetsmart working-class family who know absolutely everyone round my way and run pubs and that sort of thing; when he was around my age my dad was some sort of handsome, woman-pulling, fight-winning, professional football playing God- I'm a bit of a nerd who was always really shy and into books and doing well at school and stuff, which my old man and the rest of the family were actually very proud of but always made me feel like a MASSIVE PONCE. If I wsn't also lucky enough to be good at football as a kid I'd have probably been enormously depressed, because I'd have felt completely (as opposed to partially) like I didn't fit in.
but thats only because I'm rarely on the streets
but deep down- I'm no mug
I know what goes down man, I've seen whole episodes of Skins and bits of Inbetweeners
but I've got a lot of booksmarts too.
All kinds of smart
But all my books are about the street.
I am here all night.
but i did grow up in a post thatcher expit village so i know my way around the streets
