MyKiddo graduated last week. The family came up from Louisiana to witness the eldest grandchild cross the stage. Everything went off with out a hitch. My mom blessed us with gumbo, fried seafood and all the trimmings. Yummy! MyKiddo's graduation cook out was the bomb and all is well with the world.
She is off to Cancun on her senior trip - and I have the week to myself. Guess what? I miss her already. What am I going to do when she leaves for college in a few months? Hee-Hee, I'm sure I'll get over it. The upside is I can leave my sex toys out without her seeing them - and passing out. : )
Let's go back to the graduation for a moment. Her father showed up. He was late to the graduation. No surprise, he's always late. I don't have convo for him. I don't feel like I have to talk to him about anything. I'm good with hello....and hello. That's enough, and in an effort to circumvent an arrest for assault and battery I try to keep my distance. With that said - brother was all up in my grill at the graduation. Invading that personal space within inches at one point. What the hell? He did this thing where he was looking into my eyes - like he wanted to say something. Yes, directly into my eyes. Some type of hypnotize yo ass look.
He must not know bout me!
I know what that negro wanted to say. He wanted to say, "Thank you for raising our daughter so well. You did a good job - and I know I haven't been much help." However, he can not say that yet because he ain't that grown. But it's cool. I ain't mad. Well not anymore. I put a "Celie curse" on him many years ago. Those of you who are familiar with my favorite movie, The Color Purple, know what I'm talking about. "Until you do right by me everything you even think about is gonna fail." I never said it to him in person - but it seems to have worked long distance. Ha!!!!!
Anywhoo......it was great being with my family. My nephews are getting so big. My niece Velvet is turning into a beautiful young lady. She's getting so tall - I can't believe it. My sister is still beautiful and crazy. That girl looks younger every time I see her. And she's thin! Yes, I am hating on her. Mommy is the same, we had to pin her down to cook - she was too busy sneaking off to the malls here every time she got a chance. She loves to shop.
All in all a good time was had by all.
