i like to spend my free saturdays being productive because i don’t get a whole lot of them. there is always something or someone vying for my attention. this particular saturday was pretty eventful with volunteering for national day of service and then hittig the gym to work on my cheerleading body. ya’ll have no idea how much i miss that body! now i’m sitting in starbucks on 23rd and jackson in the central district of seattle and i feel like i’ve been transported into another world. a different world!
let’s see. there are brown folks everywhere! and they are just hanging out like they don’t have a care in the world. then there is the matte of the music to consider. they are pumping my girl india arie like she’s on payroll! i love it. she’s my absolute favorite and i can’t get enough of her. she doesn’t know this but i’m convinced india arie and i could be best friends. she’s my kind of people. okay now that i’ve gotten my secret stalker behavior off my chest, it’s time to talk about the fact i just saw rick ross in this starbucks. yep, his twin was in here like whoa.
in fact, the whole squad was in here because it was wall to wall thugnificent for a minute there. as a city girl from the heartland of the country (i rep Kansas City all day every day) i felt oddly at home. i can’t explain how seeing my people — especially brown men — just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside! i love me some black men. and they love me back. i’m truly appreciating the winks, hellos, hey beautifuls and general show of love that’s flowing my way. it feels good. perhaps i should find myself over here more often. my friend, and partner in crime, has told me it’s ike a club in here around 5:30. we shall test this out soon. i love a good people watching experience!
