Quandary Resolution 1682
thimblerig, best boy, bona fides, degage
So Tony says to me, listen, Mario's tossin' a shell game down the park - three card or thimblerig or some such - an' he got the shills and the roper but ain't got no muscle to, you know, discourage the pissed off punters, so he was wonderin' would I wanna come and be his best boy, and I said OK cuz I do got the bona fides on account of lookin' out for Mr. Gotti all them years who said I had a degage manner, meanin' I ain't pertickly shy when it comes to smackin' around guys I only just met.
