Actually, I should correct this to read:

[QUOTE]they seem to believe that the optimal strategy when caught in the wrong is to be more angry with me than they think I should be with them.

I say this because in most cases, I'm not at all angry.

What is it about the women in my life [my wife and 11 year old daughter] that they seem to believe that the optimal strategy when caught in the wrong is to be more angry with me than [they think I should be with them]?

I always thought a simple "Damn, I'm sorry" or in the case of my daughter, "Oops, I'm sorry" would suffice.



Sounds like how white folks behave ... Razz
A homeless man stopped me on the street today and asked if i had some spare change, I told him i didn't b/c i really didn't have any. I was holding my baby cousin and the homeless man replies,
"oh thats okay i can see why you don't have any spare change, you have a lot of responsibilities with the little one and all." I smiled and said yeah you right and then he said,"thats okay b/c i'm just going to do something bad with it anyway." we both laughed but i felt sad for him after that and upset at myself that i was laughing at this man's pain.

While I believe we meet each person in our lives for a reason... sometimes I wonder why certain people bump into orbit out of nowhere - not talking romance, just a conversation or chance meeting with someone you sense is quite unique and special - and you know you're never going to see them again coz they're about to jump on a plane 'home' to another continent or whatever. Why is that?

It's uplifting, but it's also sort of a tease. sck sad

I don't mind at all, mspretty. Smile She's 10 years old [soon to be 11]. . . and the entire 6th grade class went on a camping trip.

Every year the school plans a special trip for each grade. Last year the 5th graders went on a cruise to Catalina for 2 days [west coast]. This is the longest period of time my daughter has been away. . .without a family member. She went to Paris with her father for 3 weeks, and of course I didn't worry because I knew he'd take excellent care of her.

It took much 'pleading' on her part [as well as her father's promise to visit the camp site midweek] ... to persuade me to let her go. LOL.
I'm on a telephone conference call right now and bored out of my mind thus, me being here. I wonder what the other eight people are doing on the call in their offices 19 I said i wouldn't get a boring, paper pushing, office job but here i am doing that very thing bang I just started this job three months ago and i already dislike it overall. there's so much bureaucratic bullshit envolved in working a state job that it almost makes the work not worth it. sck

I wanted a mini vegetable pizza today. I had such a serious craving for one, it felt like a love jones.

So I went to one of the fancy corporate buildings near my job, and ordered my mini vegetable pizza -- to go.

This place is a real cool spot and I usually ALWAYS enjoy the food.

The Chef asked what I wanted on my pizza and I couldn't tell him fast enough, I wanted that dang pizza. I could just TASTE IT!! It was gonna be soooooooo GOOD!

....so far so good, right?

The chef goes on to say [in a spanish accent], "well, pretty lady, I'm going to make your pizza real nice for you, K?"

Well, it would've been "K," exceptin' while he's saying all this I noticed a little spittle spray from his mouth...ONTO...yep, you guessed it...MY MINI VEGETABLE PIZZA.

Oh my freakin' gawd!!!!!!

Why??? why why why?????? bang

I paid for my pizza but I didn't eat it. I dropped the box in the trash [discreetly] on my way out the door.

It felt like almost reaching a climax ... You know what I mean? Oh baby...yes yes yes baby YESSSSSSSSS ....right there ... almost ... almost.....I'm almost there!!!!!!!!

Ahhhhhhhhhhhh....


and no tomatoes.

. . .in this case, pizza.

dammit!

I just called on all of our behalfs and left a message that we were thinking about her and hoped all was well.
Peace...

Three card molly...i remember about twenty years ago losing 100 dollars on the streets of Manhattan to some hustler...Despite the pain of being duped...I returned the next year to ,ose more money..I was convinced that I could catch the trick...But...I couldn't..

I fell for this con over and over again...same trick...same silly idea about beating the game...

Sometimes, you just gotta swallow your pride and admit that you were fooled...

A MAN CAME UP TO ME, AND KISSED ME ON THE CHEEK TODAY THINKING I WAS THIS WOMAN TERESSA, HE HASNT SEEN IN A FEW MONTHS. HE APOLOGIZED QUICKLY AFTER THE JEALOUS GLARE MY HUSBAND GAVE HIM. THE IRONIC THING ABOUT THIS SITUATION IS THAT WE WERE AT A SOFTBALL GAME, AND HE SAW THE WOMAN HE WAS TALKING ABOUT, AND LET ME TELL Y'ALL SOMETHING---SHE WAS MY TWIN, CHEEKS, SMILE, HEIGHT, COMPLEXION AND ALL. IT WAS LIKE LOOKING IN A MIRROR. TODAY WAS ONE OF THOSE DAYS I GUESS!!!

I WAS LISTENING TO A FM RADIO TALK SHOW 101.3 IN MY CAR TODAY, AND I WAS SHOCK BY THE CALLERS THAT WAS CALLING IN TO THE SHOW. THE ANNOUNCER WAS ASKING QUESTIONS ABOUT IF THEIR ARE WOMEN OUT THERE THAT HAVE BEEN THE OTHER WOMAN , CALL IN NOW. YOU SHOULD HAVE HEARD THE STUFF THESE WOMEN WERE SAYING JUST TO SAY THEY HAVE A PIECE OF MAN."TIFFANY" CAME ON SAYING THAT SHE BEEN THE OTHER WOMAN FOR 12 WHOLE YEARS, AND THE WIFE DOES NOT KNOW ABOUT IT. I COULD NOT BELIEVE MY EARS!!!!! I WAS THINKING AT THAT TIME, MAYBE THE WIFE KNOWS BUT SHE GOT A "MAINTENANCE MAN "ON THE SIDE TOO. Big Grin
My hair is driving me crazy. I'm bored with it.

I wish I was bold enough to cut it all off and wear it extremely short. The kind of short you don't have to comb, short. But my head is shaped funny & I couldn't get away with wearing it that short ... OK, so I have a little 'hook' in the back of my head that no one else knows about [shhh] unless I point it out. Eek

Hmmmm. . .wear it straight, wear it curled, wear it braided, in a french roll, a ponytail, one single braid in the back. Sheese

I swear I'm sick of this damn hair.

Ah well. Such is life.
Everyone I work with is going a half crazy Eek Mad because the instore music is on high rotation but limited in variety. stck

We have NO CONTROL and it's a happy half hour when the one and only jazz cd is played... music

I've been walking around singing (Cole Porter's??) "You're Dee-licious, you're Dee-lightful, you're Dee-lovely... it's like my mouth is working without the permission of my brain. Confused
Brain to mouth: "STOP IT!!!" Mad
Mouth to brain: "I can't help it!" Eek

The only soul cd they play has an uptempto but unmusical and cringeworthy anthem/ode to America which makes us all cringe in it's earnestness and soaring vocals. 17

I'm almost afraid to ask ... but ... any response? Frown
I'm not normally a "follower" BUT

I met a beautiful young brotha. Dark chocolate complexion, soft skin, dark brown locks, hazel brown eyes. Oh my lord.

I got so lost in him that the brotha almost convinced me to lock my hair. lol Picture the Spongebob episode where Spongebob and Patrick were supposed to be protecting the headquarters of Mermaid Man and his side kick (they were unsuccessful). Remember when the Evil Manray (sp) turned on the orb of confusion? I was Spongebob. LOL "Duh, so you think I would look good in that? Uh, ok. Sign me up" LOL Too much!

Those of you who truly know me, please mark this down in some sort of calendar as the day when Shema ALMOST LOST HER DAYUM MIND!

I guess you gotta have kids to follow Sponge Bob .... I once watched the Teletubbies with my niece .... and I swear I almost lost my dayum mind sck ... Dora the Explorer is more to my taste ...
I love spongebob i think it is a funny show. its funny enough for even adults to laugh at it which is a plus when you have children or in my case siblings that want to watch it endlessly. I'm looking at my spongebob folder now that my little sister bought me and i use at work everyday.
I recently watched "War of the Worlds" on cable the other day... Not much of a movie, no real plot or dialogue to speak of... But, I watched it in "surround sound" and what an experience that was!! The sounds that were bring generated around me were spectacular!! It completely transformed the movie for me... and that little girl Dakota Fanning... scariest little white child since "Carie" - she can act her butt off...
Its sad to me when i see our people destroying themselves with drugs. I was sitting outside the local gas station/24 hour fried chicken and catfish place and I watched several homeless men beg for money and several others making drugs deals(crack it seems was the drug of choice for the night and i would guess is the drug of choice most nights around those/these parts). Most people don't think twice when they see things like this going on but i do. I wonder what led them to it-both the dealers dealing and the ones buying, if they will ever break the cycle, what I can do to change things... Frown 14
this is way more selfish than the monumental random thought above... however... "DANG" that incredibly intelligent, warm hearted, interesting, African now residing in Rochester has stopped emailing me. Razz Oh well sck so what if he was 8+ years younger than me Cool

Why NOW is this a problem, huh?

The man didn't take care of the children he had before he MET you, WHY would you expect him to take care of any kids he has with you?

Personally, I wouldn't even DATE a man/father who didn't take care of his children, period. I tried to tell you and you wouldn't listen.

and while I'm venting. . . .

Don't call me because you think you might have an STD [I was married for a hundred years, I've never had an STD, so I damn sure don't know the symptoms]

... I'm talking about the women [OMG!] that I know, who STILL do not use condoms--WTF???. In this day & age how ignorant is that????

Listen up ladies, I'm about to drop you mentally draining sisters [blk & wht] to the curb. I can't have ignorant people stressing me out. I like y'all but not enough to sacrifice my own MENTAL PEACE. I'm not perfect, but y'all make too many FOOLISH/STUPID mistakes, and I just don't want to hear anymore about it. Y'all don't listen...you just want to bend somebody's ear, and I ain't the one.

Go in peace. Smile

I'm though!


Eek I am so shocked to hear you speak this way! Maybe you were destined to educate these sistas. And believe me, some of them will listen. Please tell me you are just upset and venting and not really serious about withholding your wisdom and guidance from a bunch who clearly need it?!! Eek
