After being in American for a short period of time as a diplomat for their embassy, my African friend pulls up in the parking lot at a grocery store and has nowhere to park. He lets his wife out and pull up on the side to wait. As he is patiently waiting minding his own business, a Ukrainian man pulls in a spot that just became available. After getting out of his car, this conversation begins:
Ukrainian: Don’t you dare look at my car, it is expensive and you can’t afford it!
African: (puzzled look, thinking ‘is he talking to me’)
Ukrainian: (points in my African friends direction) YES, I am looking at you!
African:I do not care about your car sir, I hadn’t even noticed you.
Ukrainian: Well I have a gun and
I will s**** your black ass, if I can come back and there is a scratch on my car!
African: You want to shoot me? Well your gun means nothing, I have a machete which I will not use but just so you know, I know how to use it. Plus don’t you have better things to worry about in Ukraine than me stealing your car…?
African friend wife returns and he leaves as the Ukrainian man stares at them.
Now this story makes me laugh and also makes me think about all the things that are happening in the world. How people think and react and what they deem more important to them…
I just wonder… hmmm
This world which looks so whole
Shambled, disembodied with loop holes
Your perfect world it may seem
Inside out it feels
To them this world of theirs
dismantled and disengaged
Filled with anger, fear and all the rage
They know not why they face this race
The children of tomorrow
Can’t see their tomorrow
Ashes to ashes
Dust to dust
It falls around them
Doing something I don’t enjoy
But doing it because of something I do enjoy
Love working out
*pants heavily* yep that’s exactly me right this moment!
My view at the moment…
It might be hard to initially get out of bed but I realize if I put my mind on taking a quick (relatively) run then I can get my day started & it definitely clears my mind!
A fresh start to a new day!
After the break up
I was relieved
Happy that I didn’t have to feel guilty for trying to show him love
Happy that I didn’t need to pretend
Happy that I didn’t need to think twice about out conversation
He wanted to have other girls and then have me at the end of the day
I’m not sorry that I’m not that type of girl
I’m glad that you found what you want
BUT the real reason for this post
Even though I am relieved
The dating game has changed in the past 3 years and I am rusty
YES I AM RUSTY
I don’t understand flirting like once upon a time
I don’t get it
So slowly I’m trying g to get the hang of it
