Forgive me if the title is confusing, I am wierd like that. I hope you are 'keeping safe' Covid came in and changed the game! May all the dearly departed rest in peace. My heart goes out to their survivors. Its truly devastating!
On black is back: Okay I am quite late, but we have a black female Vice President, as well as a black Duchess now. I will never forget the black POTUS and his family. These type of 'wins' is very necessary to change the narrative. I also appreciate the will of the Black Lives Matter movement. |All these things are important, because in like 50 years time, that young black girl and her black brother will get off the school bus, knowing that the sky is the limit.
oya enough about that
Of unexpected gifts: So I connected with an amazing woman on facebook. I dont have her permission to reveal her name just yet. But I do follow her and she is very beautiful and kind in and outside. One sweet day, I went to her page to play, we had a verbal banter that ended up with her gifting me an adult toy! This is the second time an anonymous got stuff for me. The first was a very very lovely anon man who sent me a Phil Collins CD. He has been quiet for a while, :( I am not used to receiving gifts without strings so I kept thanking them till they got shy/embarrassed :P May God bless them and everyone around them,
I dont know how 'men are scum' came about. Permit me to share one experience.
This was Pre-Covid though. I was invited to end of year dinner/ shindig. My little black dress was perfect for the occassion. Its similar to the photo on this blog.
It was late so I had to leave. My car decided to be dramatic and just went 'off' suddenly! Luckily there wasnt many cars on the road, But I managed to use the proper safety and precaution protocol..I tried all my tricks but car did not start, I put my head on the steering wheel to just rest, think about possible ways out of this situation and calculating the expenses verses my bank balance almost in the red.
Suddenly some random men walked towadrs me, one of them asked why I was crying ( I wasnt crying, just put my head on the steering wheel) so with my heart beating very fast, I explained the situation.
Then two cars full of men also stopped asking what the problem was?
By this time,I was terrified and scared. These men worked my car and it came alive, they further explained what was wrong with the car, that I should get a new battery, work on the kickstart and service it.
I thanked them profusely and thats how they left! There was no, 'what is your name', or exchange of cellphone numbers.'
I appreciate these kind of men. Unsung heroes who have to deal with the tag 'men are scums'
So this song, by Angie Stone, is dedicated to all those kind of men
Have a lovely, love filled day!
