"I know my eyes aren't as good as they used to be, but I know they aren't so bad that they would lie to me about seeing a brown-skinned boy in Owosso at 2:30 in the morning!"
"I happen to have a mustard sandwich and a apple in my car."
The deal is I feed you and you show me your face."
It is late at night and Bud is walking to Grand Rapids to see his father, Herman E. Calloway. Bud is out of Flint and realizes all the sounds in the country are quieter, and more peaceful. But, that is starting to make Bud very sleepy. He starts to forget to duck under the bushes when a car comes. Most of them stop for a second and go and others do not notice him. But one car slows down and a man gets out of the car.
Bud jumps behind a bush and ducks, hoping that the man will not see him. He starts walking towards Bud and then stops. The man then whistles so loud that every animals near them stopped making noises. He shouts"Say Hey!" And he then says, "I know my eyes aren't as good as they used to be, but I know they aren't so bad that they'd lie to me about seeing a young brown-skinned boy walking out at night! But I know neither of us should be out here at Owosso at 2:30 in the morning!"
The man then asks Bud if he is still there. Bud raises his head a little higher to get a better look at the man. He then says"Are you hungry because I just so happen to have a mustard sandwich and an apple in my car. I might even have some red pop". Bud then screams out" I don't like mustard, sir!" The man replies saying he could take it off. Bud then asks him if he could leave it on the side of the road. The man laughs and says, "The deal is I feed you and you show me your face".
