Hashtag Wednesday: #WTHwasIthinkin?


It's the return of Hashtag Wednesday. In fact, it's been so long I need to remind myself what it is. Oh. Yes. We pick a topic and hashtag the heck out of it. 

Today's hashtag #WTHwasIthinkin was brought on by running into a dude I thought was the hotness back in college. The first issue is that I don't know dude's real name. He was a Kappa and everybody called him Snake. Back in the day, he looked like a taller T.I. and I thought he was uberSexy. There was this one night after a step show... we had a moment. If I hadn't had to return my sister's car by midnight... ah well.

But now here we are in our grown and sexy years and the only name I have to call dude is Snake? Whatev. So there I am at the Target trying to decide if my hair should be the color of Moonlit Tortoise or Brazilian Bronze when dude strolls up with the "Hey, didn't you go to UT?" 

I turn and see GrandDad. No seriously. Dude skipped his thirties, forties and fifties and looks to be firmly into Paw-Paw territory. The onlyest (yes onlyest) reason I recognized him was because for some mysterious reason, he was in a red suit and had a cane with him. (Was there a Kappa convention at five in the afternoon near Target?!) Anyway, all I could say was "Hey Snake, how you been?"

"Shelley? Right?"

"Michele."

"Did we hook up?"

"No. Sorry."

"I think I wanted to but you were too bougie."

"Yep, that was me."

"So what are you doing right now?"

"Um... heading home to the hubby and kids. But you take care now."

"Hey, hubby don't have to know ev'thang!"

"Ha-ha! True dat. Great seeing you!" *flees Target in record time*

Today's top 5:
1. #WTHwasIthinkin when I thought he was a catch?
2. #WTHwasIthinkin with a dude only known as Snake? (I still don't know his real name)
3. #WTHwasIthinkin going into Target during dinner rush hour
4. #WTHwasIthinkin not having that glass of wine with lunch today. I needed it. Badly.
5. #WTHwasHEthinkin out in GrandDad Kappa Gear in the middle of a work week?

BougieLand, ever see an ex and wonder #WTHwasIthinkin? Got any other #WTHwasIthinkin to share today? The floor is yours...

no that cornball did NOT ask you "Did we hook up?" What a GREAT thing to ask a woman.  :/  

Why were y'all even in the same aisle?  I bet you a dollar he had his line jacket in the car, draped over the passenger seat. Reliving the "good ole days."

Leon X said...

The Sigma in me will refrain from making any NPHC-related comment.

#WTHwasIThinkin going back to school? And getting a degree in IT no less? I'm on my Sgt. Murtaugh. I'm too old for this...

blackprofessor said...

Thanks for the morning laugh, I almost choked on my bagel.  A Kappa named Snake, lol!! I bet he crossed 25 years ago and STILL acts like a neophyte.

I saw an ex a few months ago and was like #WTHwasIThinking!  I got mad at myself for even thinking that something could happen between us. 

CaliGirlED said...

Chele what is it with you and Target??? Something comes to mind about you having to dash out of the store after a diversion was caused by a Target employee....I digress.

Did you say a red suit?!!!!!! Red is my favorite color, but damn! Ok in your defense, back in the day Snake probably was a catch. Fast forward to today and Snake is still trying to be the Kool Kappa Katch, that's on him not you!

Had a WTHwasIthinkin moment just this morning! What in the hell took over my whole being when I decided to have a baby by that man???

taut_7 said...

a red suit though? *dies*

#WTHwasIThinking staying out till 4:30 in the morning drinking knowing i had to be up early for work. i'm not sick or anything but i'm dead tired so i'm having a "sick day"

GrownAzzMan said...

HIGH-LAR-IOUS!!!! "Did we hook up?" Dude you don't remember? Not WTH but WTF!

DCbywayofCali said...

CaliGirlED  Chele ALWAYS gets hemmed up in some store! The Target episode, the Whole Foods episode. Methinks it's time to order groceries online. lol

JohnKinPDX said...

First of all O__O to Monsieur Snake.

Next - Last weekend, I was back in Portland for a good friend's wedding. At the reception I ran into my ex, Tracey. She acted out in the most unattractive of ways. How quickly one goes from classy from trashy makes me wonder if she was ever that classy to begin with.

Not only was it a #WTHwasIthinkin moment, it was a #Allthatglittersisntgold moment and #therebutforthegraceofGod moment. Seriously, what the HELL was I thinking? Oh... I wasn't. Okay. Whew.

thinklikeRiley said...

"Did we hook up?"
#FAILson

Riley's plan iz to get to 80 years of age and not ask #WTHwasIthinkin?

thinklikeRiley said...

#BallerStatus

CaliGirlED said...

But that Whole Foods story was great! Left ol' girl wishing she had stayed home that day!

CaliGirlED said...

Right? And if you don't remember, you don't ask!

CaliGirlED said...

God's grace is awesome isn't it?

ShawnSoze said...

I feel you. I saw my girlfriend from college a few weeks back. #WTHwasIthinkin?!
She still looked good but the attitude was - well, Chele - what's the bougie word for stank?
Did I think that the hotness back in the day?

Leo the Yardie Chick said...

Wow. I hope one day you'll be able to shake her for good.

Natasha said...

*gives a dap for the "I'm too old for this..." Sgt. Murtaugh reference*

Trey Charles said...

Yes. You did.

Just_A_Thought1218 said...

#wthwasIthinkin when i stayed w/ my freshman yr BF after the day he ran out of my room in the dorm suite screaming "there's a ROACH in there!". This was the summer time, in FL, on an HBCU campus. SMH, that should have been the last day I ever spoke to dude. Can't even claim freshman year stupidity for that f#ck*ry

#wthwasIthinkin when I met up with a frociate (h/t to ThinkPrettySmart for the term) in Biloxi to spend a day before heading to the Essence festival. Clearly, the airforce had not been as kind to dude as the army had (he was in the army when I met him). He was scrawny, his eyes were sunken, and he looked every bit of 45 when he was only 32ish(never did know his exact age).

#wthwasIthinkin when I decided to leave IT work and go into education and community outreach? I was all "down for the people" until I had to work with them. Clearly, some people aren't trying to help themselves, and the program I chose was not the place to accomplish what I wanted to accomplish. And I have more student loans to pay back (for a piece of paper I may never use). Now I'm back in IT consulting. Waste of four years.

Tiffany said...

"Dude skipped his thirties, forties and fifties and looks to be firmly into Paw-Paw territory."

LMAO!!! And if you were "too bougie" for him back then, what made him think anything changed? Looking all elderly, in a red suit, WITH A CANE, talking about hubby don't have to know everything?!

Sir.

Bonita Applebum said...

*sigh* I confess. I repeatedly have #WTHwasIthinkin moments when dealing with my ex husband. Great father to our child, yes. But...chile...

CorettaJG said...

A red suit and a cane -- in Target -- oh my.

Interesting how they age.  Recently saw my ex-husband at a funeral and he had so much gray hair it was shocking.  Made him look old and me look young and tasty though.  Maybe  his newfound "African Spiritual Science" isn't as reliable as he makes it out to be, or his plans to move to Africa when he retires from the military aren't working out, or his mom is getting confused because she named him Gary and he's calling himself "Asar," but I digress... 

I don't have to ask what I was thinking, as I recall it had something to do with powerful chemistry between me and a 6'4", black fighter pilot with ambition and a home church... *LeSigh*

Trey Charles said...

This whole story is so Dallas. Everybody runs into to everybody at the grocery store here. It's surreal. Anyway, I'm back from my world tour - who missed me?

There have been a few Saturday mornings when I have rolled over and blinked #WTHwasIthinkin? #FridayNightHookUpsGoneWrong

But for the most part - no regrets.

Page Bartlett said...

Every time I walk into work I think #WTHwasIthinkin? Then I remember little things like rent, groceries, lights and sit my butt down.

My list of exes are an entire boulevard of #WTHwasIthinkin...

Phyllis Bourne said...

I thought Daniel Day Lewis was HOT in The Last of the Mohicans. Next thing I know he's sucking his big toe in My Left Foot. 

Sol_dier said...

#WTHwasiThinking when I worked for the fun of it and not for pay.  Never again. Value my work? Pay me for it. An org that generates a huge amount of money doesn't need any freebies from me.

erm re: 'redsuit snake' 
Who asks people if they hooked up in the past?. I mean if you don't remember you shut up about it. surely?

Pure Choco said...

LMAO - #WTHwasHEthinkin?

BlackButterfly said...

"Dude skipped his thirties, forties and fifties and looks to be firmly into Paw-Paw territory." 

This is why I hate to go out when I am at home because I am scared that I will not recognize folks who have not worn life well!

#WTHwasIthinkin when I thought someone named Thriller (line name) was the sexiest 6'2" adonis alive.  Him not making it to the party after his car broke down at Captain D's was the best blessing ever.

NY2VA said...

It's all good, Chele.  Back in my undergrad says I had a "thing" with a FINE brotha named Spike.  I actually did know his gov't name back then, but Lord knows I have no recollection of what it might be. 

*Hangs head in shame and prays that Spike does not read BnB*

CaliGirlED said...

I missed you cuz!!!

"There have been a few Saturday mornings when I have rolled over and blinked #WTHwasIthinkin? #FridayNightHookUpsGoneWrong"....He's baaack!

SingLikeSassy said...

I missed you sweetie. *pressed Trey's head into my ample bosom* LOL!

Did you bring me a souvenir?

SingLikeSassy said...

#WTHwasIthinkin when I gave my high school boyfriend my cell number cause he has been texting me everyday in text speak (which looks like gibberish to me, type in complete sentences so I know you are literate) and sent me a pic of himself and he has cornrows and is looking like he spent the last 20 years playing basketball in Pelican Bay. SHU program. Twenty-three hour lock down. 

*blink*

Marioned said...

Yeah Some folk don't age gracefully.  I had a few that I ran into and thought they  were my friends parents!  No lie. 

 Red cane???  WTH was he thinking!!!  Had a sweet Kappa back in the day.  He is on my list of top 3, but he would never be out and about in a red cane.  Oh my!!!

C Nelson said...

This one is more WTHwasHEthinking ... "hubby don't have to know ev'thang"? For real, though? And that "Did we hook up?" ... Boy, if we had? I guarantee you you'd have remembered it. I might have had selective amnesia though. *shudder.* The sad part is, for him to toss it off that casually, somewhere, sometime, with some poor tasteless child, that line must have worked. Once.

Jeannette said...

I actually dated a dude named Zor for a hot minute... i think he really thought he was the 18th member of the Soul Sonic Force... o_O AND to make things worse.. the cocoa wasn't even that good.. you'd think with a name like that ol' boy knew how to put it down #wthwasithinkin

Jeannette said...

LMAO! 

Jeannette said...

LOL... u cray :)

CaliGirlED said...

 Sassy you crack me up!

NY2VA said...

i think he really thought he was the 18th member of the Soul Sonic Force... 
Did he wear leather pants and spikes? 

Jeannette said...

**sigh** YES again y'all #wthwasithinkin 

Only1DivaC said...

I know right. I swear Chele can write a book on just her random grocery store interactions alone. She needs to go in disguise or something from now on.

Trey Charles said...

Now THAT's a welcome back. *closes eyes and rocks back and forth*

rozb said...

Sassy - you are gonna give me an asthma attack messing with you! LMAO!!!

CaliGirlED said...

DEAD!!!

rozb said...

In Target with a red suit and cane? Was he auditioning as the Target mascot?

I had a #WTHwasIthinkin when I thought he was a catch? moment when my school crush found me on Facebook recently. Umm...yeah. He had a pic up of him wearing a wife-beater standing in the bathroom taking one of those fish face pictures with his phone.  All I could think of was "Man! I must have pulled a Matrix move to dodge that bullet!" He started leaving messages like "remember you use to have dat crush on me? I thought u wuz cut but I wasnt into brainy girl. can i come to VA to visit, maybe stay witchu?" (Yes, spelled like this. :p)

I have since blocked him but I cannot wash my brain to get rid of the imagery. o_O

rozb said...

Maybe he's one of those old frats that burst out in old line dances they learned while pledging - only happens when two or more gather.

rozb said...

But your kid is awesome, though! Just sayin'... *Ducking the cup flung at my head*

rozb said...

You are so much better off, John. And life is good now. For her, probably not so much...

rozb said...

When you are younger, the stank attitude may come off as sassy and perhaps hard-to-get and that can be attractive. Makes you think "Wow! I must work hard to have her!" Then experience shows you - yeah, she was just stank.

Grace said...

LOL - not an entire boulevard?! My are just a cul-de-sac full then :}

rozb said...

Not a waste of your time. Just think that when the time comes and the world is ready for you, you can just forge ahead and use that education you already have. Just consider yourself diverse.

Grace said...

"Chele - what's the bougie word for stank?" <~~ DONE.

maureen said...

Dated a guy I work with ( I violated my own rule of engagement; do not date  people you work with),  6 months in and he decided he is not into the relationship. To make matters worse, they move him to my floor and  next to my office. I want to bury my head into a mountain of sand. Oh did I mention he so mean now , will not even reply to  a simple good morning. I need out of this place STAT. #WTHwasIthinkin

Grace said...

I remember you saying that you grew up and Dallas, left and came back - it might be time to roll out again. You run into way too many people.

"Did we hook up?" <~~ Something that should NEVER be said. If you remember, keep it to yourself. If you don't, pretend like you do and keep it to yourself. UGH

SingLikeSassy said...

Wait, he decided HE isn't into the relationship and now he's stank with you? Wow. I would kill him with kindness. All milk and honey all the time. He would *never* know I gave a hoot.

SingLikeSassy said...

This, right here, is what I'm talking about. WRITE IN COMPLETE SENTENCES. YOU ARE A GROWN MAN. I don't understand all that morse code braille text nonsense. That's why my replies are few and far between 'cause I have to run your ish through web translators to understand what it is you are saying.

SingLikeSassy said...

*snicker* You need to be on top of your game if you are going around calling yourself Zor. What in the comic book ripoff hell?!

SingLikeSassy said...

Oh lawd, he was one of those leather wearing in the summertime bamas. Sounds like he had musty underarms.

SingLikeSassy said...

And what's funny is she's mad she didn't get her way. No remorse or regret for what she did to you. How she hurt you. And she has nerve to not even be humble enough to apologize. I don't understand people with empty souls like that. *shakes head*

BklynBajan said...

*woo woo woo* we all have one in the closet of memories. Its ok!

OneChele said...

You need to kill him with kindness. Shame him into acting like a human being. Arrgh!

OneChele said...

Hells naw.

OneChele said...

Zor. Nuff said.

OneChele said...

There's nothing worse than inappropriate leather wearing. Well okay there are worst things but this is just ugh.

BklynBajan said...

Girl please! Pull out your best suits, sharpest heels, get your hair styled in a new look  and visit MAC to get your makeup updated and strut every day like the office is your runway and your cocoa is toped with shaved white gold.

Send yourself flowers and giggle like a schoolgirl when the receptionist calls to tell you that the conference room is available for the meeting you wanted to book.

Make him wonder who is putting that smile on your face. Fake it til you make it. Don't EVER let a man make you feel like you are not worthy. 

I've been there and if I could do it again would do it the way I just laid it out for you.

OneChele said...

If you're not on campus, at a reunion, a step show or a greek picnic... no red canes. 

OneChele said...

Cornrows... text speak... so much FAIL, so little time.

OneChele said...

Why do they do it? Spike, Snake, Gator.

BklynBajan said...

Found mine and he is still working on being a rapper with videos on you tube. That'll go over real well at our 25th reunion next year SMDH....#wthwasIthinkin

OneChele said...

Lawd... lawd.

OneChele said...

Wow!

Jeannette said...

Nah girl... he was one of those mysterious Matrix lookin types... shame on a nuh for thinking he could put it down.  LOL

OneChele said...

We call those "Teachable Life Detours" - now you don't have to wonder "what if?" You tried it, didn't like it and now you know.

Cyn said...

Maybe  his newfound "African Spiritual Science" religion isn't
as reliable as he makes it out to be, or his plans to move to Africa
when he retires from the military aren't working out, or his mom is
getting confused because she named him Gary and he's calling himself
"Asar," but I digress...

Is your ex, my ex?  LMAO.
My ex husband and marriage gets a big #WhatwasIthinking?

OneChele said...

Bougie word for stank? I don't know - LePeu? Eau du Trifling? Whiff of Slapworthiness?

OneChele said...

The fact that she's so at ease cuttin' a fool in public lets you know that she had ratchet tendencies from jump.  

CaliGirlED said...

 No you're right Roz she is. Definitely a blessing!

CaliGirlED said...

 Crackin up thinking about the scene in Waiting to Exhale when Lelah's character throws the orange at Troy!

CaliGirlED said...

*dies*

GuessImJay said...

Anyone else look back at their high school yearbook picture and wonder #WTHwasIthinkin?

CaliGirlED said...

 Yes indeed!!!

Ms. LTB said...

LOL if it makes you feel better you not the only one having that particular #WTHwasIThinking moment.  I started on a MBA 8 weeks ago.  My brain is still cussing me out but I'm surviving.

Ms. LTB said...

LOL I found a middle school yearbook and considered burning it but decided that there was no point.  Family photos manage(d) to catch stuff that random photographers miss.  I wonder how folks with kids explain some of the photos (and now tattoos) that exist of them at the same ages...

BklynBajan said...

Your brain will keep saying that up until you turn in your last paper/project but hang in there! Still looking fora job but it was worth it. *hands cup of coffee and hug*

I try not to open it too often.

"can i come to VA to visit, maybe stay witchu?"

wth?!

LMAO!!

Earthangel172 said...

SLS,

iCan't with you today. Bwahahahahahaha!

Earthangel172 said...

My ex husband and marriage gets a big #WhatwasIthinking?

Agreed. No more starter marriages for me. LOL

bashowell said...

I had a snatchback, Urkel glasses and Bert brows...I try not to think about it.

bashowell said...

Every ex ends up on the #WTHwasIthinkin list:
Purple contacts
Tiger draws
Pizza boy
Lust demon
...

rozb said...

Don't let a ratched-ass man chase you out of a job! That is messing with your money.

Treat him like a non-factor and keep it moving!

rozb said...

It was the most ratched thing I had seen on my Facebook. Ever. In. My. Life.

maureen said...

Thanks!

rozb said...

Hells yeah...it is as sad as it sounds.

rozb said...

You must just now be recovering from the stomach pain after laughing at those videos...

maureen said...

 I wish I could pull  all the above. Right now  I'm team avoid at all cost. Thanks.

maureen said...

Doing that, but it hurts as hell. Thanks.

rozb said...

Like old dude wearing the leather vest in Waiting to Exhale - the one that dated Lela Rochon's character.

maureen said...

Ma'am. His ugly contempt is killing me softly. People that are rude/disrespectful cut to the very core of my being.

rozb said...

It is a sad, funky situation. Especially when they show up where you are and know you - by your real name. Hard to ignore that.

rozb said...

"My #WTHwasIthinkin involved an old crush and a baggy Magnum"

You wanted to ask if he needed a rubber band to hold that on?

*DEAD* x_X

rozb said...

I had so much air in my hair...not a good look.

CaliGirlED said...

*hollers*

rozb said...

His rudeness to you shows he has issues HE has to deal with.

I kinda wish I could care more about rude and disrespectful people. Instead I just keep it moving and make a mental note to leave them in their misery.

Sounds like he needs therapy and Jesus...

Ms. LTB said...

Thanks. I will keep in mind that you have already survived the madness when I'm ready to throw in the towel.  The first few weeks I considered sending flowers and chocolates to everyone that I knew who worked with financial statements, balance sheets, etc. on a daily basis.

Ms. LTB said...

oops I was suppose to be replying to GuessImJay.  No idea how this ended up as a separate comment line.  SMH too much multi-tasking and not enough sleep.

CaliGirlED said...

No Maureen you can't let him to that to you! You're giving him power over you, your power! Take a deep breath in and remember some of things you have taken away from various convos in BougieLand. Let something resonate in you that will stir up a wall to block his antics. It doesn't mean you have to be nasty to him, just make him a non-issue, but without going out of your way to avoid him.

This is his loss!!!

rozb said...

Ran into an old boyfriend and when he grinned his mouth looked like a ten-day old jack-o-lantern. He kinda saw the look on my face and turned it down to a closed-mouth grin. I still spoke, but when I got away it was definitely a #WTHwasIthinkin moment.

Ms. LTB said...

*ducking and giggling behind CaliGirlED* Wow. 

OneChele said...

#NoCountryForMenWhoWearAnimalPrintDrawers No. Sir.

OneChele said...

Plaid shirt. Bermuda shorts. Matching Penny Loafers. Get into it.

NY2VA said...

DEAD!

Singlelif said...

Yep !!   #WTHWasIThinkin' wearing those HUGE, burgundy Laura Biagotti eyeglasses ?  They took up half  my face...

Singlelif said...

Never, ever let him see you sweat...

Singlelif said...

Back in the day I had a boyfriend named Duke.  He was always in jail.  REALLy conflicts with my current career path.  #WTHWasIThinkin' ?

JoycelynC said...

"he has cornrows and is looking like he spent the last 20 years playing basketball in Pelican Bay. SHU program."--THIS added a much needed laugh to my day.  Thank you.

JoycelynC said...

Whiff of Slapworthiness--this gets my vote

JoycelynC said...

Just be glad God got your attention BEFORE the wedding.  You now know peace and she knows that she will reap what she sows.

CaliGirlED said...

Please stop!!!

Singlelif said...

#WTHWasIThinkin' to invite "new dude" to a Friday night after work thingy with the co-workers ?  He proceeded to get falling down drunk, after letting all the other men in our group finance the outing. Didn't buy a single drink.  Not even mine...

#WTHWasIThinkin' to accept a date to a Teena Marie/Lyfe Jennings concert, where my "date" wore "all yellow everything".  Bright yellow - from his hat, to his cane, to his alligator shoes.  He said it was the Detroit in him. 

I could go on and on, but I'd be blogging on Chele's blog, and that's not Bougie.

Singlelif said...

Purple contacts ? Purple is my favorite color, but Ewwhhh...

michaeldavis said...

you know every girl had a pair of LBs back in the day!

michaeldavis said...

Yeah like why did I own a pair of gold Cazals with removable frames

michaeldavis said...

points for saying the King's English.  I can still remember growing up and my Pop would cringe as I spoke as he yelled at me to use the "King's English."

JoycelynC said...

Hey, I've gone to a play with a Jamaican dude who for some reason felt the need to represent the entire country flag in his outfit.  I actually asked if we were supposed to dress like that (it was a Jamaican play).  He was fond of his bright colors, even had some turquoise and lime green. 

SingLikeSassy said...

OOohhhh wheeeee to Mr. Yellow. LOL!

SingLikeSassy said...

I thought I was Appollonia AND Madonna. Nuf' said. O_O

SingLikeSassy said...

Control those things you can control. You can control your feelings and reactions to his actions. You have power in this situation. OK, he didn't want to continue the relationship. Sucks for him. I don't know you, but the fact that he is acting stank now tells me he is not a catch in any sense of the word. So I would exact the best revenge of all: Living well.

And if that don't work, I can always come to your office and talk loudly in the hall outside y'all's office about how fine and paid and generous and smart and whatever else your new man is and how much he loves him some Maureen. ;0)

CorettaJG said...

Mmm-kay! lol!

CorettaJG said...

Ugh!  And had the nerve to try to recruit me to the cause.  No Sir! 

I try to be kind since I did marry him and he's in the Hampton/Newport News area with other "believers," but I just keep shaking my head and wondering, what in the world??

Brenda Kay said...

#WTHwasIthinkin allowing a cousin in Chicago to hook me up on a date when I was visiting there recently, only to open the door to see "The Black Santa" complete with grey white beard, grey afro from the 1970's, ho-ho-ho Christmas red suit with matching hat and black shoes. Good home training is the ONLY reason why I didn't fall to the floor into an uncontrollable fit of hysterical laughter. 

OneChele said...

Not Black Santa!!!! Oooh. No.

BklynBajan said...

I know you think you can't but you can. I wasted two of my college pretty years and tears on a no good excuse of a Sigma (sorry LeonX). Broke me down emotionally and spiritually. Twenty years later all I can say is Thank you Lord for all you've done for me! Now he's the one crying talking about "the one that got away".  And I'm shaking my head wondering how naive and dumb I was at 18. What seemed life shattering then is merely a footnote now-God protects His foolish children.

I teared up reading your post because I remember how I felt when he did what he did and I thought my life was over. I want you to know that I could not envision being where I am today because I didn't want to live without him. But I'm here to tell you that you WILL get to a brighter day where this man is not even worthy of a credit in the movie version of YOUR happy ending (whatever that is). You can't drive forward sitting on the trunk facing backwards. Leave work  fool in your rear view mirror and keep yourself surrounded by love. Your bougiesisteren got ya back!

Earthangel172 said...

"He said it was the Detroit in him."

Did this kneegrow really go there?! I'm sorry but ALL YELLOW is country as hayle...LMAO

BklynBajan said...

Have to keep reminding my self there are reason, season and lifetime people. He was definitely a season that I can look back on with a smile and no regrets but SO happy I went away to college and moved on.

They tell me it'll be worth it after residency and maybe fellowship and I finally start making some decent money. I often wonder, but its too late to turn back now.

Too many WTHwasIthinkin moments to pick one.  But uh "did we hook up?"  I wish a ninja would approach me with that nonsense.  I understand you younguns have your own lingo and what not - for the most part I understand ya.  What I will never accept is that "date" has become synonymous with "slept with" in some circles and that "hooking up" with a person is given the same importance as an extra piece of chicken in your 2-piece by receiving the "hook up" from your girl behind the counter.

I think we all have those #WTF moments..sadly we just happen to realize them a little too late.

Now I may let you express yourself with your clothing but I draw a line in the sand at mouth jewelry.  No gold teeth at this party.

THanks for the kind words. I love this right  here: "You can't drive forward sitting on the trunk facing backwards. Leave work  fool in your rear view mirror and keep yourself surrounded by love. Your bougiesisteren got ya back!"

Put Beyonce's "Best Thing You Never had" on repeat in your office, and keep it moving.
