Can I Get That 3 Piece...

1st Piece Get Your Grown Man On...

Well, y’all I got the word and Ciara and Bow Wow are definitely dating each other. Yup. Now, you know Mr. Wow is in that stage of trying to be grown so, what better way to get grown than to get with the biggest chick in R&B (at the moment) – his own girl. The word is Bow Wow’s first single is going to be a duet with CiCi. Don’t quote me on that though. But, they are rumored to be pretty damn happy.

2nd Piece Love...It's Not Evol...It's A Working Progress...
Well last weekend I went home to see my folks...This is the 1st time I've been home since Christmas...And I live 2 hours away from them...Sad isn't it...Well anyway the story...There is something going on in the ring of my friends...Love is in the air...I have 4 friends that are getting married this summer...And 1 more that is talking about proposing...And the coolest thing about it was that 2 of them were around for verbal this weekend...It was like a little love conference or something...It was so good that it spilled over into the beginning of this week...And the main speakers were the Great Charlie B. & Fannie L. (my folks)...Well they have been married for 35 big ones...In these days in time that is amazing...Alot of people say that my parents aren't like everybody else...They don't disagree...They have never been through the wire...Well let me correct you on that...They have been through some stuff that would make our situations seem like a G Rated movie...In the last year I have dug up some stuff on my parents that I never knew...Soup Opera for real...But when my folks talk about relationships it seems like the world just stops for a few minutes...They both made it clear to drive home the fact that love is a working progress...You are not gonna feel the same about that person everyday...Moma said it like this, "I don't wake up everyday liking your father, but I see the bigger picture"...The bigger picture is that she is happier with him than she is without him...That is priceless...They said that is the true test...I totally understand what they were talking about...I love Steph with everything I have and I know she gives me 110% all the day...Sometimes she gives until she is red in the face (she's kinda light skinnedededed)...I'm on her mind just as much as she is on mine...But everyday doesn't feel like a 6 pack of fuzzies and a Roberta Flack & Donny Hathaway duet...Some days I question everything??? Love...Life...Future...Us...That's Human...But when I think about the bigger picture I wouldn't want anybody else in my corner...I know sometimes I can get on her nerves...She can surely drive me up a wall...Sometimes she doesn't think I notice her love that she displays...And I can see where it can drive her to question...But I notice...The days she call during her busy Tuesday & Thursday class schedule...The times she text me during her long emergency meetings to tell me "I love you"...The weekend getaways to the M, Knox, or Halfway...I know right now she's busy...Grad school can be a motha...But I understand...I just want her to keep on giving me what she can...Cause the end of the tunnel is coming soon...I would take those bad days with her than not to have no day at all...Life without her is enough to make me cry...A very wise man once told me this to kind put it all in a nutshell..."You have 1 earth-angel in your life time...DON'T MESS IT UP"..."And if you messed it up...Fix it"..."When the sh!t hits the fan and the fan breaks...Don't panick...JUST FIX THE DAMN FAN!"...Well I guess that is enough on that...

Bow Wow and Ciara? Alrighty then.

Yes, love is definitely a work in progress. Hell, it's just fuckin' work, but of a good kind.

And I got 23 right on the quiz. Not too shabby.

Me said...

I got a 23.

Yolanda said...

Your words warm at the heart. Love is something we must work at. It's up to us to keep the fires burning. I know the work ahead of me, and I'm ready to undertake mine. I'm so glad to see you and Steph share something wonderful. Much success to you.

P.S. Glad you're back on the scene.

NapKaboom said...

Man, you're the one who shouldve announced a hiatus. I left and came back and you still were gone. I think.

Anyway, aww@you and Steph. All these love stories Im reading almost make me wish...

I got a 13. Oh yes. Im a genius.

Lene said...

I'm glad you're back to keep me posted.

I hope you and Steph stay together forever....

I only got 13 right, but I'm Canadian. I'm using that as an excuse...

And on the Canadian dime, the Queen of England is on the back. The Bluenose is actually the front of the coin.

Toya said...

man, i didnt even bother to write the answers down...i coulnt have gotten no more than 15 right....awww@you and ya girl, *wants to be in love with someone too*....your parents are right, love is a work in pastor says that, if you're going to love someone, you're going to be out for the ultimate good of them, you have to make that decision to stay with them and to love them....cuz you're NOT gonna like them everyday, and you just can't up and leave when the butterflies are bow wow (i know he's just bob wow now) and ciara...why have i been hearing this rumor that she use to be a man or that she's a hermaphrodite? and no i'm not trying to start a rumor here on your blog, but my friend keep telling me that she heard that and that it was in this neighborhood paper in chicago...

SMW said...

Oh my gosh!

I was reading this post and I thought to myself, "Wow, I love the way he thinks about his girl..." Then I realized it was you G! I had no idea you were so sweet.

We need more men like you. I think I may send this post to a few of my friends. It kinda made me believe that there are men out there who just might have some sense. Kinda...

I'm glad you are back.
