Time Will Reveal
This year I celebrate my 20 year high school reunion. I’m shocked – slightly appalled – and numb at the fact that that much time has passed since I walked down the aisle with my fellow classmates. We had so many dreams then and had no idea at what life would hold. Seven years ago we ushered in the millennium, almost four years ago I returned to New York City and close to two years ago my beautiful nephew was born. Time flies. In just three short years I’ll be 40. All to say, before we know it we’ll be looking back on our lives and wondering what we’ve done with it. I can honestly say that I’ve been blessed. A wonderful family, incredible friends and jobs that I really didn’t (don’t) deserve. I have no complaints. The Lord was good enough to give me sufficient good looks to get by, an intellect that I swear comes and goes and an overall healthy existence. So, it’s that time… time to work on resolution #1…taking risks. Keep me in your prayers as I explore what direction my life will take in the next few months. There are already a few things on the burner and I’ve taken that step out onto the ledge of life…I’ll keep you posted.
Sex… Who’s Having It?
Okay, so I’m not a virgin – mom, if you’re reading this, I am, but I can’t have my friends make fun of me. Of late, I’m feeling more and more compelled to hold on to the goodies. Yes, I’m single and don’t have any commitments to anyone – so I can always do the nondescript guy thing and have some hot one-nighters, but instead, I’m hanging out, having a great time and then bringing it home – alone. I’m even dating a great guy who is beautiful, smart – slightly gay (LOL), but we’re spinning our wheels. It’s like we’re junior high school kids, home before our parents get home. We have romantic dinners, watch movies, even strip down and neck until my lips are numb, but then I then dress, say my goodnight and go home. So, what’s this new disconnect? I’m physically willing, but mentally not connecting with anyone where I feel drawn to third base. Well, I have a date with a new gentleman this week. He’s different… dark, handsome and with that nerdy edge that sends me into naughty mode. With any luck, this brotha can get it.
Happy Belated Birthday V
Twelve years ago I began working for the ABA in Washington, DC. While there, I met this wonderful young woman and we became fast friends. We were tight and although our lives took different directions, she still holds a special place in my heart. A few days ago, Nesie celebrated a birthday. She now has a husband and family and is expecting a new baby this year. Happy birthday Cola… do your thing.
What is the most romantic date you’ve ever been on? What made it extra special?
Keep passin’ the open windows…
