Neens and D.J. Les courtesy of @sixfive
Thursday night, I went to a function.
Boom bap deliciousness, but I hadn’t anticipated it.
I had a big work day, and knew I wanted to chill later,? so I had given
KB a heads up.
Got a text? around @ 6:00 pm saying, “not going to be able to make it tonight.”
I was like word? Okay, thank you for letting me know.
So I am out, decompressing, made a new lady friend, Connecticut Minnie.
I get a “Hey” text from KB around 7:30.
I respond. “Hey Love.”
“You get my Voice Mail?
I say, “Nah I don’t check vm’s, plus I am in a no service zone.”
He like, ” Oh two joints going on tonight, Black Milk and L.E.S spinning
I’m trying to go, would like for you to come.”
I’m like. Lawd I am not built for this.
First no, now, “Imma come meet you where you @?”
You know how you don’t wanna wait for somebody, but you
I couldn’t figure out where the LES jawn was, so I text J Boogie
and crew and they was like yeah girl, we here, come through.
He cool with J Boogie so I was like, ummp. How do I freak this?
Time goes by, I wait, Connecticut Minnie look at me,
and says boo, you want a ride? I am not going in but I will drop you.
I want to stay posted. She like YOU BEEN waiting, scoot, let him
swoop you. And I was kinda embarrassed because normally I be wanting time, places and plans LAID out, clean. I’m real particular about that.
But this, ummmp. New ‘ish.
And that is not how THIS works. BUT its awesome, because
I am outside of my comfort zone, learning to do my part
and give the rest to God. Ummmp.
Fearless and Vulnerable, I’m trying at least.
The spot is all boom bappy and good. Like 1992 boom bappy.
30 minutes later. I look up Connecticut Minnie is there, I’m like WHAT, I thought you went home. Yeah, you came.
KB shows up, walks past me, thought he was playing me. Instinct
was to feel tight, but I know better, sorta.
I asked,? he say “Nah, I? ain’t see you.” Well he is near sighted. Luls.
“Glad to you see you made it.”
“Girl I came out here to see you, you think I came to see J Boogie,” lols.
“Of course you did.”
I dance, he don’t dance, but grabbed me.
“Watch you get caught up in my MEAN two step.” Looked at him like he was gone out his skull.
Lying if I wasn’t lightweight caught up in the mean two step, what part of the game is this?
Later that evening @sixfive captured the above flick.
I was kinda shook by how warm the colors are.
@Beautynubian says that I look like pure joy.
In some ways I think she right.
I had no idea how that night would turn out. And it was
lovely. My face shows it. Ummm hmmm.
Here’s to being more human humans in #2010 and letting
go of thangs so you can let OTHER thang’s do what it do.
Here’s to it all not needing time to be planned out down the hour and it being LOVELY anyways.
Letting go of anything in 2010?
Letting anything in in 2010?
Take any awesome smiley pictures lately?
