He comes at me and stares me down like I should be open to this.

As if I would.

He blows me a kiss.

Can you get to know me? What?
You’re kidding right?
And if I was to get to know you sir, what would it be like?

Forgive me for my judgment but you smell of alcohol, your fingernails are filthy, and your eyes are so red that it’s hard to believe they’ll ever turn white again.

I can speak to you about my life, I can speak to you about God.

But he said, “I don’t need to know all that, I know God, I want to know you in a special way, I wanna be your man.”

How would that work?
Could I take you home to my children? Count on you to earn a living and be responsible for yourself.
Would you be a positive asset to my life.
I mean think about it, is today the last day you take a drink.
Is today the day you clean your nails atleast.
And stop looking for your next great scheme.
Is today the day you seek forgiveness for whatever and try to live a better life. Is today the day you become productive.  
I can pray for you.
I even wish you well, but.. You don’t really want to know me.  
You’ve known plenty of me’s.
Unlike what you think, we aren’t that rare of a breed.
And I’m sure, throughout your times, you’ve ran across me a time or two..Maybe even three..

He stops, and stares as if he gets it now..

He looks at me and says, “yea I know you… Had one just like you. My crazy ex wife she wanted me to come home at night, stop drinking, stop gambling, quit my girlfriend, go to work, help pay the bills, and give her my all. Naw, I ain’t ever going back to that.. Excuse me Miss Lady, but I gotta get away from you.”

Gladly sir, and you have a blessed day.

I cracked up at the irony of him “getting away from me” like, he thought I was somehow open to this.
As if I would..

Are you extra?

I’m sure that by now, most of us have heard the phrase, “He or she is so extra”. I’m just wondering where did this little term come from. I have lately found myself referring to individuals as being “extra”. It’s just one of those things that you hear everyone saying, and before you know it, it has seeped into your vocabulary as well. But, just what classifies someone as being extra? And is everybody’s interpretation of extra the same? I’ve thought of a few examples of “extra” behavior for your review and maybe you’ll agree with my thoughts on the matter.

1. A woman walks to an elevator but before pressing the button to get on, she pulls out disinfectant wipes and spray and thoroughly cleans the panel. She is “extra”.

2. A member of the usher board is high-stepping down the aisle during church service. The other ushers are moving steadily in one calm motion, while Mr. High stepping usher has his head held high, his chest poked out, and his elbows bent, while making sharp turns at every corner. Brother high-stepping usher is being “extra”.

3. A woman goes to a school PTA meeting dressed rather provocatively. The parents look at her in disbelief. She rolls her eyes and turns to them and speaks in a voice loud enough for the entire room to hear her as she says, “I dress like this because everybody does it, besides I wanted people to stare at me today”, Ms. barely dressed is so “extra”.

4. My oldest daughter is a huge Kanye West fan. Last night she went to the Jay-Z/ Kanye West concert (she’s grown) and while there she texted me every five minutes overly excited about how close her seats where to the stage, seeing Beyonce seated across from her in the audience and things like that. Then she texted and said, “Ma, Kanye is right in front of me, oh boy, panic attack, freaking out, can’t breathe, so close, panic, done”.

I kindly texted her back and told her, you are so “extra”. Lol…

So you see, being extra is just another way of saying a person is behaving in a way that is unnecessary, over the top, dramatic, inappropriate, too much of, overreacting, just plain ole…….extra. Today, I’m multi-tasking, working my regular 9-5, while focusing on some personal stuff, in which case I haven’t had a lot of time to devote to writing, but I wanted to do a quick outfit post anyway, and show you guys that I kept it real basic today, blending my colors with the fall temps, making sure that I am certainly not looking “extra”. 🙂

God Bless, and have a great day!
