A Fresh Perspective

Monday, April 11, 2005

Good morning-
This weekend was interesting to say the least. I had a great time in Chicago and seemed to experience nearly every inch of the town. It was great! A mini vacation. One of the most interesting aspects of that trip was the ride. I rode shotgun with my cousin and a friend of his and the conversations ranged from politics to religion. We also talked about relationships and marriage. As a matter of fact, we talked about everything that men talk about when they are locked in a car for 10 hours. Right? The men that I talked to had a positive attitude towards life and the women that they loved (This included their mothers). They viewed the world with an opened mind and did not accept just one explanation. They gave their own theories about the plight of man and supported evidence of things not seen. I listened and also gave my view on things. It was both refreshing and thought provoking. It is a rare occasion that I get to engage in such discourse. It's great mental stimulation.......cerebral aerobics. It is great practice and it forces you to take a stand on something.
Anyway, besides that I ate, drank and laughed my way through a beautiful weekend in the mild and sunny city of Chicago.
Well, it's back to work and my daily routine. The great thing is that I enjoy that world too. In keeping the spirit of my excursion I'd like to make a toast......here's to great conversation, tolerance, and good friends! (esp. my dear friend on the South Shore of Chicago.....God bless you). Peace~

SB - sounds like that was an illuminating trip! This is just the type of inspirational story I was looking for! A lot of women I know would have loved to have been in that car to hear what's really on brothas' minds! Thanks for sharing. And I'm glad God guided you safely to and fro.

When I was a freshmen in college I traveled to another state to visit my friend and her sister at another university. We were at a big ten college. The Saturday of my visit she hosted a hot party with many of the popular football and basketball players as well as some now famous thespians. Some of the football and basketball players went on to play pro. But on that night my friend was trying to get a date with one of the players and since she felt that I was blocking her by my incessant talking, she decided to to spike my virgin drink with some jack daniels, to shut me up. This only made me talk more and even show the team my cheer leading ability. Since I was getting all the attention, she put more jack janiels in my drink to get me drunkier. This caused her and the guy of her dreams to have to take me back to her apartment. At the apartment, they put me to bed so that they could do their thing but everytime they would leave the room I was in I would get up and turn the stero on with Curtis Blow on singing "A hip hop a hippy hop", in which they would rush in and turn it off. I did this so often that they ended up snatching the plug out of the wall and taking the stero with them. This stopped nothing. I started singing at the top of my lungs the same song. My friend was furious. She and her date were horney and I was interrupting with this drunken singing. Then I would bang on her bedroom door. I kept this up until he became so frustrated he left. She was so angry at me for what she called 'cock blocking' that she rushed me to the bus station the next morning. To make matters worse she had to keep stopping so that I could throw up. We laugh about that now but I say if she had not spike my drinks that night she would have got it on with a now famous man. So I learned one thing that have stayed with me, I can not drink and I certainly can't drink and sing.

from Nick...

On a trip to Europe, the flight was really funny. Everyone had the shits lol from take off to landing. I was like, if I really had to go I wouldn't make it. The way they continued to run in and out of the bathroom created a funk that seeped out into the passenger area. And the line for the toilet at both ends of the plane was unreal. One guy even got out of his seat before our landing was complete because he had the runs, farting all the way down the aisle.

LOL, guess what? I got `em too. It must have been something in the air that circulated from nostril to nostril as I breathed in the germs and viruses from others ...ewwww! I wished I carried some Lysol for my own protection. I hate flying. Whatever one has the other is sure to get. I think we all got it. And to top it all off, I sat next to a woman who snored all the way to Europe -- 10 hrs flat. She ended up laying her head over on my seat, arm on my lap, and her head eventually found its way to my shoulder. What an uncomfortable ride.

Her husband who was sitting in front of us tried to wake her. Smart man for sitting at a distance. I asked if he wanted to switch seats, and he had the nerve to say, "no thank you, enjoy your ride and company" and then he laughed...

"Thank you Sir" is all I said in return. I swear she could have caught a lot of flies with her mouth wide open... better yet, maybe she breathed in all the funk from the bathroom and swallowed it into her system. I wonder if she got the runs too? Hahaha it would serve her right, if so.
