I was working and I looked up at the clock and realized that within 30 minutes my love was going to be walking through that front door from his trip. I looked at myself in the mirror and thought, “What man would want to come home to this?” Ha! So I ran around and got myself together, fluffed out the fro, put on some real clothes, earrings and even a little bit of lip gloss. When he came in, I grabbed his bag, gave him a kiss on the cheek and he looked stunned. You might say, really? All of that? But what I realize for certain is that lazy love breeds lazy results and that won’t be me!
When I met my now fiancé, I was actually an aspiring songwriter and I remember him saying to me, you are going to write books someday. I laughed because I always felt that in my heart as a child too but here I was pursuing a slightly different path. When I was young, I remember trying to read “Fly Girl” and thinking, I could write better than this. (Sorry no offense to Omar Tyree, I was young and just felt if he could do it I could do it.) I never did finish that and hear it’s a hood classic. But I digress. I was an avid reader and knew that one day, I too wanted my words to be able to affect people, and I just didn’t quite know how it would manifest.
“I help women get out of their own way, so great guys like Albert Brennamen have a fighting chance. “ Yes that is a line from Hitch and yes I was watching it recently. It’s a darn good movie. But when I heard that line, I shouted all types of amens! I have found that the more I talk to various women, the more I realize that they are indeed in their own way.
