I was on a flight and the black flight attendant was making rounds and said "You need to put your seatbelt on, girlfriend" that irked me. I wondered if she used the girlfriend on other non black women.
I really gotta work on this self confidence thing.
A guy friend on mine called me a hybrid. He said I was half girl, half one of the guys so sometimes they forget I am a girl. Can we say screwed? Aight.
I associate the word explosive with diarrhea. Like, everytime I hear it, I think diarrhea.
I keep saying that we have functioning sociopaths walking among us in our society.
I don't think I have ever met a Naija guy who didn't consider himself a freak. Have you?
My brother says that I have too many friends that are younger than me. I don't know why he thinks that. I mean I do but I also think I have friends that are my age or older. I do remember there was a point when I was usually the youngest. It reminded me of some quiz or list thing I was reading that asked "Do you find that most of your friends are married and have kids?" "Do you find that your friends are now getting younger?"
That being said, it is a blow to the ego when you are out with 3 other females and you are the only one who doesn't get carded.
Speaking of aging, that moment when you suddenly realize your parents have aged and are old and you are so aware of their mortality, is a somber one. It's also a strange feeling realizing that one day you will be a dead person.
You meet a guy, you fall in love and you get married. 6 months later you find out he is into 419 activities. Is that enough reason to leave? or would you stay?
Watching Louie, I see these pre pubescent kids acting a scene about smoking weed. How do you let your kids act that and have them separate reality from tv?
There's this women's clinic by my church. I pass by it every day on my way to work and unfailingly these group of old people are there protesting abortion, saying their rosaries and holding up these gory pictures of fetuses. One day, I was driving by and say a young lady who had just driven up and got out of her car in her cutoff. I wondered if she was getting an abortion and wondered what happened as one of the people walked up to her. I wonder if they've been able to change anyone's mind.
Someone tweeted about her upon the many #gymflows people be tweeting they still look the same. I've never understood the grand hoopla and announcements - or maybe I do, our generation needs the approval of strangers online. Although, I was told once that it is not about that its about encouragement and being accountable. I still feel it can be done offline but maybe I am overthinking. ANyways, abeg I am not brave enough to be announcing to the world and body saying otherwise. I say just do what you do without the hoopla and your body will speak for itself.
That's all I got for you guys. Hope you have a wonderful weekend! Stay safe and stay blessed!
