I’m in the middle of an urban narrative which I will post very soon, but I had to get a little sidetracked, inevitably, by the goings-on all around me.
Firstly, congrats to my lil’ cousin, Lil’ G., who’s graduating this year from high school and who also recently got admitted to a [coveted?] Virginia university. I know this sounds bad but as slick and carefree as she is, I was almost doubtful she’d pull through, but pull through she did.
Funny, but Virginia has a somewhat infamous repertoire for lynching lots of people of color back in the day. Now, my lil’ cousin is – you guessed it - black and guess what city this university is in: Lynchburg. Go figure.
God really has a sense of humor.
Then, my other lil’ cousin, Lil >D., is becoming a jock of sorts, fortunately or unfortunately. Dude now plays basketball, football and soccer, and it so amuses me when he’s in one of his games and his little groupies come thru, tripping over each other trying to get his attention.
Is it just me or do girls these days not look like they used to back when I was in high school? I go to Dude’s games and his lil’ groupies, no more than 14 or 15 years old, swarm him and I’m like hot damn, are these high-schoolers?! These are kids trapped in grown women’s bodies! Then, those same little f*ckers try & flirt with me – ha ha! All I do is flash out my ID and they’re GONE!
Anyhow, now that this young dude is in the freshman basketball team, he has to dress up whenever he has an away game. I mean, this kid has to wear dress pants, shirt, socks and shoes whenever he’s playing at another school. He even has to wear a tie, can you believe that sh*t? Problem is tho, dude didn’t even know how to tie a tie. No one in his household knew how to, and I wasn’t around to help him out, so you know what he did?
He Googled it.
Do you know it worked? I’ll be damned! Which goes to show that this unofficial Google slogan is true:
When in doubt, Google it.
