Wow!! I don’t know the last time I did this. I don’t even have anything on my mind to truly vent about!!! But anyway, I’m back!! I probably would’ve taken today off from posting but I was home yesterday, still in recuperation mode and I get this text. This text came from my childhood friend Arnette Bitsy Edwards and she pretty much told me that since I was home resting, I shouldn’t have any problem with posting a vent today!!! LOL, So, Bits, this is for you!!
So, here I am at my keyboard on what is supposed to be a record setting 70 degree day here in NY. Can’t wait to go outside for my daily walk (Doctor’s orders)
So, we’ve once again had to endure the news of another school shooting. Will this never end?? In a word, no. Not as long as these guns remain as easy to purchase as a Big Mac!!! How in the hell is a teenager “with known issues” allowed to be in possession of such weapons??? And tell me once again, why do people need guns that can unleash that many rounds in a matter of seconds??? There ain’t that much hunting going on!!!!
But anyway, I really don’t have much on my mind to vent about today. I guess I’m just so very thankful to still be here.
You know what?? I know what I’ll vent about. I’ll vent about all the men out here, especially black men (yeah I said it) that have a problem with going to their doctor for a checkup!! I’m not off the hook either but I have been getting regular check ups, the last few years but I kept putting off my first colonoscopy.
I had heard that the liquid concoction you had to drink was the worst experience in the world. Then I drink the stuff for myself and find out that it ain’t that bad. But then I find out that my procrastination had led me to the point where I had developed colon cancer!!! This was the one time procrastination truly betrayed me. But by the grace of God, it looks like it was caught in time and hopefully I’ll be here for a little while longer!!
Anyway, I just wanted to put it out there to any and all friends of mine, that when you see me going forward and I ask you how you’re doing, I’m really gonna want to know HOW YOU’RE DOING!!!!!
I learned a valuable lesson and hopefully some of you have learned a lesson as well. I have too many friends in this world and every time I lose one it hurts…A LOT!!! From all the well wishes I received in the last few days, it’s been made clear to me how much I mean to people. Well, I just want you all to know that you all mean as much to me.
I’m gonna get off my soapbox now and go take a shower and enjoy this 70 degree day. You know why I’m gonna do that??? Because I CAN!!!!!
Lastly, I’d like to wish one of my longest VW supporters and good friend Regina Inno Cent a very Happy Birthday!!! Enjoy!!
And that’s all I got folks. Enjoy your day wherever you are and EMBRACE LIFE!!
Love you all,
