Pardon the love interruption:


I am a sucker for love, especially black love.  With so many negative stereotypes, it is good to see something positive and heartfelt.  I have included below one of my favorite episodes of “Martin”.  I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

My friend called me to vent about the new guy in her life.  She said “I want him to call me because I am on his mind.  I want him to send me flowers.   I want him to want to be with me.  I just…I just want it.”  All I heard was Etta James soulful voice.  My friend then asked “Am I crazy?”  I wanted to say “Girl noooo! All you want is that Sunday kind of love.”  But before I could answer her question, she says what too many of us have said “BUT…he told me he isn’t ready for a relationship and that’s okay.”  Now I wanted to say, “Yup, you are crazy!”  Of course I didn’t say that.  I nodded because I understood.

It’s late evening and raining.  I am riding in the passenger seat, looking out the window at nothing in particular.  A SUV in front veers on the shoulder and splashes in a puddle of water.  A lady to the right waives to apologize after she almost changed lanes into my passenger side.  Yup, a storm is definitely brewing and people just cant handle themselves accordingly.  It’s the type of weather that makes you wish you were curled up on the couch, with a juicy medium-well T-bone on your lap, and a glass of wine within arm’s reach.

As I look at the overcast sky, the song of inspiration starts playing on the radio.  As Kelly Clarkson’s humming comes through the speakers, I think of a particular female celebrity who is under scrutiny for her relationship with a married man.  In fact, a few female celebrities come to mind.  Now this post is not dedicated to judging the celebrities or talking about the hurt their actions has caused or the multiple individuals adversely affected by their actions.  That’s another post, another song, and another day!
