Play your part

Today on the train to go see a friend I saw a shabby dressed man get on to beg for money. And I was torn, what if I gave him money and he used it for drugs or something. And then something in my head said well your part is to be a blessing. That's your role, what he does with that money is between him and God. Sadly he got off the train before the voice in my head finished talking.

As if to test this theory, on the way back from my friends another homeless man got on the train to ask for money. At first I didn't hear him cause Beyonce was blasting halo in my ear. Then he walked down and I heard that same voice say go after him. So I did. Asked him what he wanted and gave him some change. And what he did next almost broke my heart. He hugged me. And I was soo happy I helped.

Whether or not that was Gods voice or my conscience I can't tell. But truth is most times we're torn between helping these homeless people and what they are going to do with the money. But can I just say that your part is really only to help and not judge. What he does with your alm is between him and God. I would however strongly advise that you pray that (s)he doesn't use it for the wrong things.

Goodnight,
B

Kisses...

Do you know what I've never grasped? Kissing! what is that? you put your lips on mine next you stick your tongue in mine, our tongues are frolicking and ooh wait what's that? Saliva -_-. Frankly thinking about it makes you erm I dunno.

However in the act it feels different, sometimes it's magical other times I'm like woah hold up there mister! they are lips okay not pop tarts, don't suck them all in like that. And what's with all that spitum? control your mouth! I'm telling you, you kiss some people and you swear off that act and others make you not want to ever seperate your lips again.

So this post of course is to those who think their lips are vacuum cleaners. I know there's no exact curriculum that teaches you how to kiss or date people or whatever. Except maybe they've introduced it into sex education but my point is it's tricky. I get it. You watch some movies and you cringe when they kiss like please breathe a little. How do you know just when to slip your tongue in? When to change the position of your head? Some guys yeah just want to paralyse your neck, like oya now lets switch. Yeah practise makes perfect, there's no denying that but if I may point out just one thing

YOU GOTTA START SLOW, KISS SLOWLY, GENTLY AT FIRST BEFORE YOU GET ALL PASSIONATE! Please do not start by sticking your tongue out first. What do you think you are? Salamander lizard? If you must practise, please do before you gnaw off his/her lips. Having said that I had an amazing kiss tonight. hehe goodnight

Love,
B

First Dates

Everyone knows they are tricky, a conflict of norms and interest. Do I wear cologne? Does that top give out too much? Do I laugh at all his jokes? Why is she talking so much? Do i ask for a refill? OMG what if my stomach makes those gassy sounds? Urgh and if I make a grammatical error? Lord i hope he didn't hear that, laughing when you don't hear the other person well, hoping to God it was a joke they said and not a question. Soo many questions being asked, in our heads of course and sometimes the voices in your head don't pick a better time to criticise you than then. It's racking, unnerving right from preparation to the actual date. What if the food isn't nice? What do we talk about? Should I talk about great aunt Shelly? What do I wear? Oh God what do I wear?!! What's worse is when you're being surprised, you don't want to turn up overdressed or underdressed. Well not here to talk about what you wear, that's really between you and your closet.

I'm more interested in the date itself. Lunch dates, dinner dates, indoor dates, outdoor dates, the whole damn lot sets me on freaking edge!!! However what I've come to realise is if you're 100% yourself that day there's really nothing that could go wrong. Of course first impressions count so she wont be impressed by your burp and the fart sounds your armpits make. And he really doesn't care about how many beauty pageants you've won, He's got eyes to see you're beautiful. But just yesterday my friend showed me an article on why relationships end and one of the reasons was along the way the real you starts to show and it isn't beautiful. Avoid this easily by being yourself 100%!! right from day one. Trust me if it's meant to be he/she is gonna accept you either way. And really the world needs more real people than counterfeit. If you snort while laughing then do it, he's probably going to think it's cute. If he doesn't then to hell with him, no one's perfect. Be able to laugh at yourself and accept your flaws and then it makes it easier for them to love you too.

Of course all golden rules for first dates still apply, learn to make the conversation two way, bla bla bla but all I'm saying is, don't pretend to be who you're not just to get 'em to like you more. Cause when the real you starts to show, and it would my darling, things are gonna get ugly and trust me you would regret it.

Toodles,
B
