Night Walks & N Bombs

There is nothing more unsettling than being accosted by an inappropriate conversation in the middle of an attempt at adulting. They can be treacherous to navigate filled with awkward innuendoes and unnecessary N-bombs, is this the price of change? Also I wish I knew why a stroller full of children seems to be an invitation to ‘please share with me your views on the racial climate in America’? The days of walking your children in peace are clearly long gone with all the ‘woke’ adults nobody cares if the children are sleeping. Enjoy a couple of unique conversations I found myself in as a result of some ill time wokeness and unusual comfort with racial slurs.

Say It How? Im Black and Im Proud!

The struggle is real for Black people in America, it’s difficult to simply maintain ones train of thought without being bombarded by some new tragedy almost daily. I intended on discussing how difficult it is for the parents of victims such a Breonna Taylor, to not only deal with the loss of a child but the birth of a movement.  Being a new parent myself every time I hear a story I always find myself having the thought ‘thats someones child’ however, that thought was interrupted by news of another tragedy involving a mentally ill Black women who was tased to death by the police. The amount of injustice taking place against Black people combined with the internets ability to inform of said injustices can caused a feeling of inadequacy in ones actions. At least it did for me, causing me to ultimately talk about the importance of taking action and the many forms that can take. Educating ones self is only half the battle, ensuring the new found info is applied in real time is just as important otherwise you may as well be a Jeopardy contestant…..

The Art of Tipping

Frugal or cheap, come in with a plan or TIP in the moment. To Ensure Prompt service, should the amount given directly reflect the level of service received? How about a video game life gauge where for each mistake made they lose a percentage of life/TIP, too many mistakes and you just get a piece of paper that says ‘game over’ at the end of the meal. That last one would certainly inspire a sense of urgency, no time like the end of a meal to start passing out public life lessons. Get all the social financial advice you could ever need and so much more in this weeks episode.

Juneteenth…The rules of engagement

Is it necessary to educate oneself on the history of a holiday prior to wishing someone enjoyment of said holiday? I was asked how I felt about ‘non-blacks’ saying happy Juneteenth, which was not an issue that ever entered my mind. It seems there are some who feel in order to say ‘happy insert holiday here’ you must be fully knowledgeable of the holiday and it’s history. I on the other hand feel like a greeting is not an open invitation to a ‘wokeness’ test.
