So in the fear of not sounding politically incorrect I wrote “certain women love me” as the title. But in truth, I have had a number of incidents occur that support my observation that for some unexplainable reason Black middle aged women seem to have an affinity toward me. I used to joke about it with friends thinking it mere coincidence but now I am beginning to believe that it’s something more than biased observation. Like when you buy a red car and all of a sudden you start noticing tons of red cars that you hadn’t before noticed.
Ill let you be the judge. Here are a few incidences that happened recently:
2) I’m at the postal office applying for a passport. The black women at the counter is giving everyone hell and a lot of attitude. I am dreading having to speak with her. be yet front. The moment I walk up to the counter she is sassy but overly warm. And when she takes my photo she goes out of her way to show it to me and retakes it multiple times until she gets one that she says “looks nice.”
2) I am alone in the elevator at work when the elevator stops and a jovial Black women walks in. The doors have barely closed an she exclaims, “you have gorgeous teeth!” being that she did as well I returned the compliment and then we carry I. A short discussion a out being fortunate to have good teeth without having to use corrective technologies.
3) One the plain two kids were bickering. Their grandma turns to me chuckles and says “their siblings. Can you tell?” I laugh and respond, “I have four younger siblings. I know all about it.”
4) Today while browsing the shirts at an Austin thrift store a women turns the corner and goes, “Boy you have beautiful hair! Want to trade?” I laugh and say,”I don’t think I could pull yours off!” She laughs, “sure you could just braid it up into corn rows.”
I think I am averagely handsome, but def not modle quality. And no one else gives me random compliments…
The wedding was beautiful. It was followed by a nine course Chinese dinner. Unfortunately every course had meat in it. But I was able to ask our server for a vegetarian dish which I munched on for the evening. And of course the best part of the night was the dancing to all the corny wedding party music.
–S80 Airplane, Texas Bound–
Darren and I are about to land in Austin. We are spending memorial weekend in Texas for a wedding of one of his friends from college and so he can show me Texas.
–Rental Car back to Airport–
Had an amazing time last night dancing with all the girlfriends of Darren’s college buds. (Another amazing perk of being gay, and having my Mormon dance skills makes it all the better.)
So we got in the car this morning only to find throw up all over the back seat floor and ceiling. So we are in our way back to the airport and it’s my job to try to get us an upgrade as retribution for the ordeal. Let’s see how I do.
–New Rental Car back to city–
So I tried but they didn’t have anything but minivans available that fit seven. And we need one big enough to get our gang to the wedding this afternoon so minivan it is. But we did get one day comped.
