T’was the night before 40…And as much as I tried, I just couldn’t remember the rest of the poem. Truth, my closet is currently undergoing a dose of gentrification. Yeah, it happens to the best of us. I’m in the process of improving it so that it conforms to middle-class taste. I’m getting rid of the deteriorated urban clothing by means of more affluent clothing…I’m making my closet more refined. So here goes…Continue reading “T’was the Night Before 40”
Hi, I’m sure most black girls and even some black boys have a similar hair story to this one from their childhood. If you’re anything like me, you probably even have more than one. I grew up around kids with different nationalities from my own. As a tween, I started to realize that my hair was different from most of the other kid’s hair.
When there’s something you have to do but you just don’t want to do it, what do you do? I used to procrastinate my way through it but, then I realized that it’s much better to get it over with.

Any flicker of worry would surely seep through their eyes and I would be able to tell…yup this is it! PANIC NOW! Continue reading “Covid-19”
Thursday that just passed was October the 17th. For those who don’t know it was National Mulligan Day. Or, ”Do-Over Day” as some call it.
A few days came to mind that I would’ve liked to re-do. But, this one day in particular, kept running through my mind after I was reminded of Mulligan day.

My last post was all about signs you are an adult. I’m going to point out that it’s a very faint line between being a child and being an adult. The reason I’m pointing this out is that sometimes it happens so suddenly you may not even realize. I remember the day that line wasn’t faint anymore.
I was once approached by a friend for a paint job referral. Mind you, the paint job she had was still fantastic. She had told me her cousin had done it by himself. The person I referred to do the job was our previous superintendent. He had done some work around our place for purely aesthetic reasons. Everything looked great! We were pleased with the amount of time the jobs took, the cost and with the outcome.
