The unmitigated gall of some women...

OK so I post my Engagement Pics on FB. I get a note from a woman (let’s call her TC). TC’s note is short and simple……Congratulations Deon. Then came a tag request and a friend request. Since she is not familiar to me and the note is to Dion. I call and ask him.... Do you know a TC? "No, but what does she look like. Is she from Wize Wordz?" I don’t know but she is requesting to friend me AND…(here’s the kicker folks)…of all the pictures I posted – 20 in all. The only one she tagged is the one of you all by yourself!! He says the name is not familiar so I tell him I’ll show him her tonight when I get home. In the meantime, I send her a note and apologize for not knowing her and ask if we’ve met. Or if it’s Dion she knows. Her response…. "We’ve never met but we have a mutual friend CH and I know Dion from Albany."

Later on that night, I show Dion her pic and he’s says OHHHHHHH that’s Tracey. I know her from a while back I think she moved back to the city. Now please understand that we use know in the biblical sense in my house. So he KNEW her once or twice.

Please someone tell me why she thought it would be appropriate to friend me, and then have the unmitigated gall to tag his picture from our engagement shot for her photo album.

This here is the shit that makes women everywhere look bad……OY!!

Who am I and who did I replace myself with?

So funny thing happened yesterday…

I was talking to one of my BFF’s and she said... “Where is the old (insert name here) that use to co-sign all my craziness?”. All the way home, I kept thinking….Yeah where the hell is she? When did I become the person who asks… Why are you going to do that? What do you think (insert name here) is going to say? When did I start caring what other people think or want?

For all of you that don’t know this…. This is a startling revelation!! What the hell? Now my BFF attributed it to me getting engaged, but I know that is a bunch of BS. But what is it? Did this happen gradually or all at once? Has this way of thinking been creeping up on me slowly and then one day just ambushed me? Seriously, is the real me in a pod in someone’s basement?

I shutter to think that I might be living my life by the same rules that “they” follow…
I abhorred the thought that one day someone is going to call me to be talked OUT of something…

What happened to the person whose classic response was.. “Fuck it, what’s the worse thing that could happen?” Then when we thought through the worst case scenario…would easily justify all negative outcomes as fate or irrelevant.

I liked that person. I was fun. I took no prisoners. I hurdled that weak and trampled the dead. I was the friendly proclaimed “Queen of Justification”.

Now, who am I? Fuck…
