ok, so unsung on tvone is one of my favorite shows. last night i re-watched the phyllis hyman episode. is it just me or was she one of the most stunning beauties ever? homegirl was gorgeous. she didn't think so, though. trippin.
then i recall one of my facebook friends' status update last week: I NEED TO GAIN ABOUT 10 LBS. AND QUICK. CAN SOMEONE TELL ME HOW TO GAIN WEIGHT? and she said it just like that. in all caps. i figured some dude, either directly or indirectly, had her thinking that she's too skinny and needs to get thick. grow a fat ass. brickhouse. etc. let me tell you. prior to my 30s, i wanted to gain weight too. i had been small most my life and wanted to be "thick but not too thick." a chick turned 30, got a boyfriend and i then started wishing for the naturally small frame again. i'm still on the smaller side but trust when i tell you, now when i eat that kristy kreme, it's gonna show. small or thick, mine as well enjoy what your momma gave you. trippin.
and oh yeh. so when i saw the knifed-up version of lil' kim on da lipstick bandit's blog, i had to smh. why the heck did she do that to herself? she was already cute. and any minor cosmetic changes (a beverly hills dentist, some good make-up, a stylist like ursula or lysa) would have sufficed. trippin.
we won't even mention that gorgeous girl friend or two that we all have that just won't leave that dude alone. "guess what he did?!" trippin.
and i have no final profound comment. you catch my drift. and i realize i've listed several very different situations; i'm just writing what quickly came to mind. oh and i'm not pms'ing. just a humpday observation that i thought i'd share. see what you started, lipstickbandit!
so do "we be trippin?" and if you say yes, then why? talk to me.
