I Don’t Like…

I have come to the conclusion that I REALLY don’t like nicknames.

I don’t know why all of a sudden it occurred to me, but nicknames bother me. Others may find them cute or harmless or whatever, but for some reason I wish people would call others by their birth/given name.

It’s just me, maybe I’m growing up.

Paying attention to children can bring a lot of laughs. After hearing this, I was crying b/c I was laughing sooo hard. This is a conversation between two brothers, just having their moment:

Unloading food from the vehicle at church

12-year old: I’ll help take those things in

9-year old: me, too

12-year old: here, you get this one

9-year old: I can’t take that, it’s too heavy

12-year old: it’s not too heavy, you can take it. You’re a man, ain’t you

It seems like I’ve been away foreva, but I’m here, once again. And while I’ve been away, I’ve been resting and getting my dreams on. I have no clue what these dreams mean and why I’m having them. Just know that they are extremely weird, but not frightening.  For example, this one dream goes a little like this:

My oldest sister was driving what appeared to be a van (why is she always in my dreams) down a busy city 3 lane street. Everything seemed to be normal, when apparently my sister missed her turn. Upon realizing she had missed her turn, she decided, instead of turning around and traveling in the opposite direction, she would put the vehicle in reverse and drive backwards down the highway.A cop who had been on the road, but on the oncoming traffic side didn’t appreciate this particular maneuver and put on sirens to alert her to pull over. Well, she decided NOT to oblige and continued to drive in reverse down the highway.

During this ordeal I’m in the back of the vehicle, along with Key, telling her the police wants her to stop. After a couple of minutes of this manic driving, she pulls into a gas station parking lot and locks the doors. The police order her to unlock the doors and when she doesn’t they ask me and I unlock them. They open the doors and see that I am feeding Key nuts. I have no idea the relevance of the nuts. They get my sister’s license and registration and check them out. After determining that she is no criminal, they simply tell her that it’s illegal to drive down the highway in reverse, duh, and allow her to leave.

After she pulled off, I was awakened.

As I write this post I realize this dream may have come from me watching Wanted so late at night.

Hot Chocolate

One of my favorite things to drink is hot chocolate. I can drink hot chocolate in the winter or the summer. I love it in the morning as well as at night. I just love hot chocolate. But, with this love of hot chocolate, comes a problem. I’m picky with the type of hot chocolate that satisfies me and I have been on a quest to find it close to home.

While attending graduate school, I frequently visited this coffee shop en route to class and would always order hot chocolate. Now I’m not a coffee drinker, but this hot chocolate was very familiar to the taste of coffee. Well, after graduating I was no longer able to visit this particular shop and get my cup of hot chocolate. So, to satisfy my craving I found a coffee shop near home and ordered, what else, a hot chocolate. I smelled its aroma and thought I had hit the jackpot. To my disappointment, this cup of hot chocolate tasted like a melted Hershey’s chocolate bar, extremely too sweet. This is not what I was expecting, not at all.

I have tried McDonald’s hot chocolate, instant packets of hot chocolate, and sooo many other kinds that I’m totally frustrated. I just want to find a decent cup of hot chocolate; not too sweet, not instant-tasting, a coffee aroma and taste, and close to my home, preferably one I can make at home. Please help a sista out. Help me find that perfect cup of hot chocolate. I’ll be forever grateful.

It was Spring Break last week and for some unknown reason, I thought it would be great to close my eyes and hand over my bank card. No, really I wouldn’t just hand over my card blindly, but I did spend quite a good amount of money taking care of vehicle maintenance and hair maintenance. And when it’s all said and done, the vehicle’s safe and my hair looks FANTABULOUS.
