Don’t Stand So Close To Me… The Remix

Happy Sunday my Lovelies!

* Steps up to the mic, clears throat*

Excuse me everyone.  Can I have your attention please?

As is the norm on my weekends, I have had yet another encounter with John Q. Public that I have found disturbing and a bit irritating.  So at breakfast yesterday at Frank’s (anyone who has lived in Houston for any amount of time knows about Frank’s!), the new one on Westheimer between Kirkwood and Dairy Ashford, I ordered my usual; sausage and cheese omelet, half grits, half hash browns and biscuits.

Yes, I ordered it!  I was hungry and it was 10:30 am and over 14 hours since I had eaten last, so there!  So when our order came the waitress unceremoniously announced that they ran out of biscuits and asked did I want anything else… Read the rest of this entry »

A Moment of Reflection

Good morning my Lovelies!

Happy Sunday my dears, it is yet another gloriously beautiful day in Houston, TX!  I am on what seems to be a never ending quest to evaluate my inner most self and can normally be found in a pensive and reflective state.  Today is no different than any other day as I am deep in thought yet again.  It has taken me years to figure out who I really am outside of being a daughter, a sister, a wife, and a friend.  It is hard to realize who we are outside of all the labels that we have and believe define us.

It is my hope and sincere wish for you all that you take time out to truly figure out who you are and what you want, outside the moinkers and titles we attach to ourselves and let other attach to us.  I think you will surprised at the outcome.  Let me know how it turns out for you,  I would be happy to hear it!

Blessing and Happiness

“The Alphabet Game”

     Today has been a rough day for me, to say the very least.  This week in general has been one that has tested my patience to the inth degree. Something happened to me today that caused me to take a step back, a moment of self-reflection and compiling a persona inventory of sorts.  This “thing”, action, occurrence, for the lack of a better term, shook me to my foundation and made me question my self-worth, my ability to function in a professional capacity even.  And I know that it shouldn’t have affected me the way it did, I am stronger and better than that.  As a matter of fact I have a sign posted in my cubicle to remind me on those days when it all seems to be too much that I can do and be better.

     I have done several spiritual inventories before but this time I think it is time for a personal one. Read the rest of this entry »

Don’t Start None, Won’t Be None!

I am vocal, jovial and animated around those whom I am comfortable with. For everyone else I am quite reserved as I am observing and calculating whether or not it is a good idea to be the me that everyone else is accustomed to. Don’t get me wrong, I am always me, day in, day out, I will remain true to who I am. I just have a filter, some people get 20%, some get 50%, very few can handle much more than that!

That being said, tonight was sister time with my lovely lil’ sis/bestie. Of course being the fashionista that she is, Erica showed up looking casually fab! ( I was underwhelmed by my own work attire of khaki and denim, but I digress.) While enjoying drinks, each others company and conversation with a random oil rig worker from Canada, I eyed an old a#$ man, old enough to damn near be her grandfather eyeballing her, all while his wife was looking at her phone!! I looked at him looking at her and went into protective sister mode. His wife looked up and tried to cover up his creepy lurking by commenting on my sissy’s tattoo and attire. This set his wife off and this broad had the unmitigated gaul to start talking trash about MY sister!! Oh hell naw!!

This is where my filter went from 50% to 100% and she got the full brunt of who I can be! I unceremoniously told her to shut up talking about my family. I kindly informed her that she needed to check her husband, who was eye-banging my sis while she was busy looking at her phone, rather than making unfounded, ignorant and slanderous comments about my sister. (Alcohol had nothing to do with me confronting her, I protect mine sober or not)

The moral of the story my lovelies is this: Don’t think just because we are pretty and genial and laugh with people we meet at random that we will simply let anyone talk unmerited smack about us. We are ladies first so we won’t fight you physically, nor will we make a scene in public; but be prepared for a verbal assault if you are in the wrong. If you don’t start none, there won’t be none!

Blessings and Happiness
