WARNING: I Throw Shade T-shirt


WARNING: I Throw Shade T-shirt
WARNING: I Throw Shade T-shirt by BougieGirl1

 I am not ashamed to admit that I throw shade. Sometimes, I toss out a small sliver of shade just for something to do. On other occasions, I throw massive amounts of shade and wait quietly for it to disrupt someone's emotional ecosystem.

A huge thanks to technology for enabling me to snap this photo from the relative comfort and safety of my window.

Don't Worry. I Am Not Stepping Up For Anyone...

Don't Worry. I Am Not Stepping Up For Anyone... by Bougie Girl Apparel


Dear Ladies In My Harem,

It has been brought to my attention that some of you think that I am playing favorites.

 I can assure that I am not. I show you all the same amount of disrespect and disregard. 

Just because I may post a photo of us together on social media does not magically remove the dysfunction from our relationship. 

Hell, I might even marry one of you. But, rest assured I am not ever going to be a faithful husband. 

And why should I have to be?  
I have a full-time harem around waiting to take their turn with me. 

Do you understand the kind of boost that fact alone gives my ego?
It is like no kind of high which I have ever experienced.

Seriously, please do not cry or fret over what I am giving to the other harem members.

I am not stepping up for any of them either.

i have no real friends


i have no real friends
i have no real friends by Bougie Girl Apparel


It's true. I have no real friends. Instead, I have people in my life whom function in a friend-like capacity. There are times when I long to be in the throes of an authentic friendship but, then I recall how messy those types of associations can be.

All in all, they require to much soul-searching and well, authenticity. There is no room for any of that in my life.

Soul Conversations: Confronting "The One Who Got Away" On The Astral Plane



 




Soul Mediator:
Some cases are too bizarre to be believed. This  case definitely falls into that category. It revolves around a concerned father finding one of his son's ex-girlfriends named Tara on the astral plane. His sole intent was to convince the young lady to give his son a second chance. Sam is convinced that his son, Kevin has made a terrible mistake in cutting this particular young lady loose. He spoke to his son about this to no avail. He decided to take matters into his own hands by going on the astral plane to discuss this with her directly. I interviewed both the father and son at the same time.  It was a highly charged conversation to say the least.

Soul Mediator:
How did this all begin?

Sam:
My son has such potential. He's always been brilliant when it comes to books and concepts. But, in the romance department, let's just say he has a hard time discerning a good woman vs. a not so good one.

Soul Mediator:
How do you feel about what your father just said about you?

Kevin:
I mean, I am not surprised. He's not exactly wrong but, at the same time I have a right to my life.

Sam:
Which is being wasted as we speak.

Kevin:
Dad...

Sam:
 Is it so wrong that I want the best for you? She is top of the line. She would be a good wife for you. (pause) But, of course that's probably why you are not attracted to her. Just pretend that she is nothing special. That should work.

Kevin:
Enough. You have no idea what you are even talking about.

Sam:
I am talking about the fact that you can't appreciate a good woman when she shows up in your life. Instead, you waste your time on women whom are not about anything substantial.

Soul Mediator:
I can appreciate that you want what's best for your son. But, he is an adult and he has right to his choices. Browbeating him will not change that fact.

Kevin:
Dad, you're right. She is a great woman and any man would be blessed to have her as his wife. She deserves the best. But, I am not the best for her. I have caused her too much pain already. I had to cut her loose for her own good. I was destroying her day by day.

Sam:
So improve yourself. Do whatever it takes to be the best man possible. Just don't lose her.

Soul Mediator:
Sam, what is your biggest fear around Kevin not being with this woman? Why is it so important that Kevin reconcile with her?

Sam:
Tara is a positive influence on Kevin. During their relationship, his whole outlook on life improved. He was changing for the better with Tara. But, it was almost as though the happiness and good feelings overwhelmed him and he had to flee.

Soul Mediator:
What do you think about that Kevin?

Kevin:
It's true that I was happy with Tara. Hell, I even follow her on Twitter. She's upbeat when most people wouldn't be. To this day, after everything that I put her through, she still doesn't hate me. She wants me to be happy. Yes, there are things that I wish I could take back. But, I can't and I have to live with that. Dad, I know that you mean well. But, Tara and I are over for good.

Soul Mediator:
How does that make you feel to hear your son's admission of guilt?

Sam:
It's difficult to hear. I believe in my heart that Tara is the woman for him. But, I also understand my son's point about him being a toxic influence on her life. She deserves to be happy.

Soul Mediator:
Agreed. Do you promise to stop visiting Tara on the astral plane?

Sam:
Yes.

Kevin:
Thank you, Dad.

Shoulder To Shoulder On The Pier





We are all standing together on the pier. Strangely enough, it does not feel awkward and there is a decided lack of hostility as well. You don't know me...you just know of me. It is the same for me. I have only heard bits and pieces about you.

He walks up slowly to you and gazes into your eyes. The children are dancing around you both. I turn away because watching this intimate scene makes me feel even more like an interloper. My car is parked a scant 50 feet away. You are both so into one another that it is highly doubtful that my exit would register.

I head to my car and his hand touches mine. You and the children stare at me wordlessly. I can feel traces of confusion, disappointment, and a bit of anger coming from all of you.

I look up into whiskey colored eyes which are assessing me earnestly. No words are spoken. But, I know what he is trying to communicate. We were always good like that. Picking up on one another's cues without either party saying a word.

I nod my assent and understanding. He kisses me on the forehead and picks up his large bag. He is headed for his ship. Every few steps, he turns around and looks at me.  I wave and wipe tears from my eyes.  His eyes have moistened a bit and he shakes away the sadness. He turns and faces the ship. There will be no more back and forth. This is truly our final goodbye.
