Campbell’s Chicken Noodle Soup. I’m afraid to finish eating it because of the pain it causes in my face. The 3 bites I’ve had are all I’ve eaten today. All 3 bites were tortuous. I’ve lost 5 or more pounds in the past month because of this. I love food. Hell I love the act of eating food, entirely too much to fear it. Fuck.
Letter 3 - My Parents
Dear Mama, You and I are two completely different people. We have two totally different views of the world, and this has caused us to butt heads my whole life. Nevertheless, you have gone over and above to look out for me. I couldn’t ask for a better mother. You always worked two jobs, as long as I can remember. Though you did make me never want to be a nurse or join the Army Reserve, you...
Sittin' on Top of the World
Tristan: How are you?
Me: Not well. Mystery illness is effin with me. Can't really walk today. How are you?
Tristan: Shit, I'm on top of the world compared to you! Lol.
What is it called when you’re so used to going through something horrible, that when it is at its worst point, all you can do is laugh and shrug it off?
She knows basic sports info?
My sister: So Lebron James is going to the Heat?
My sister: You didn't hear about that?
Me: No, I knew. I'm shocked that that came out of your mouth. I gotta call Daddy and tell him.
Just My Thoughts: This Verdict...
vandalyzm: If you are not familiar with the man above that is Oscar Grant. Killed by a police officer by the name of Johannes Mehserle on new years day of last year. Shot in his back, completely unarmed, and for no reason. To see the video of him being murdered go here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bmJukcFzEX4 Disturbing right? That same cop just went to trial and was found guilty of...
What you talkin' 'bout, Willis?: More On Oscar... →
The more I think about the Oscar Grant verdict, the more concerned I get. Oscar Grant was laying down on the ground, restrained by police. One of them had his knee on his neck. Laying face-down, how much of a threat could he be? There was no need for a taser; why taser someone that you have…

#StopThatShit: The Rick Ross Beard
If I see one more handsome, relatively cute… or hell, even downright ugly man wearing this ugly ass Rick Ross beard, I’m going to beat them and shave their faces while they’re down. And I’m not going to use some fancy electric shaving device. I won’t even use a Mach 5. They’re getting this cheap ass BIC razor and some Dial soap. I hope it burns, you jerk. I...
Mae Likes Books: And Then There Were None
I love literature. Books pick you up and drop you off somewhere new and you have to stumble through to find your way out. This book, I read in school (like middle school) that looking back, was within my honors English reading level, but delved far beyond my comprehension at the time. And Then There Were None by Agatha Christie, 1939. Just now, reading more on this book, I find that the original...

Letter 2 - My Crush
Hey crush, Though I would love to write this letter to a bowl full of mashed potatoes, I fear that the potatoes couldn’t read this… so you’re the next best thing. I have had a crush on you for 3 years. I see you, and my eyes light up. My knees get weak, I get butterflies in my stomach. It feels like a Disney Channel movie. You walk in, you smile, one tooth sparkles with the...
The picture above is of me and my bestie, February 11th, 2006, chillin’ in Baton Rouge after making a road trip there to celebrate our homeboy’s birthday. This is the last day that I remember my life being normal. The next day, February 12th, after we made it back to Houston, I began having a headache that wouldn’t go away, so I drove myself to the ER. It was the worst pain...
Letter 1 - My Bestie
Hey Crystal, Yeah you, you’re my best friend and you’re getting this letter. We’ve been through hell and high water together. Literally, high water because we always live in apartments in Houston where it floods. Lol. We were roommates, we’re besties and we’re business partners. I couldn’t ask for a better friend. You are my child’s godmother. You drive...
