the HUSBAND type...(revisited)

Myron Rolle.. the dashingly handsome.

Myron Rolle.. the rhodes scholar

Myron Rolle.. the philanthropist

....and now, Myron Rolle the NFL draft pick.

Myron Rolle has been drafted to the Tennessee Titans. Just another impressive bullet point on the man's resume. And the funny thing is, the least impressive. I came across Myron about 2 years ago while surfing the net. Some article about a college football player who was also a RHODES SCHOLAR. Brains and brawn, how could i resist? Now, that first article didnt have any pictures and mention that this was a young african-american male excelling in academics and athletics. A couple of clicks later and I was hooked! This dude was it..i mean IT! Incredibly smart and accomplished, a star football player, and a 'do gooder'. A bio-med major with aspirations of building a medical facility in his home town... who filled out a football jersey rather nicely.

And now... full grown.

Seriously? I mean, he is really walking around breathing and what not? Not just some character in an E. Lynn Harris novel? *Miss you Prof. Harris*

Now, this may have been a little premature, but I have made a couple of calls and I am thinking... a fall ceremony would be nice. I hate wearing suits in the summer time. *smile*

Reality check: I am not going to go into how cute our babies would be (but they would be hella cute) or how sexy this dude is on the surface (just as chocolate as he wanna be)-- but on the real.. he is ENCOURAGING. It is good to know that there are brothers out there who are breaking down stereotypes. Brothers out there who have the bigger picture in mind and tenacity to bring it to fruition. His story reassures me that WE CAN have it all as black men, despite the what mainstream wants me to believe. Not only do i want 'that' on my arm, i wanna be 'that'.

Thanks for the INSPIRATION Myron.

oh and Myron, dont forget to call the caterers, they need our decision on the cake by next Wednesday *wink*

sometimes i'm GOODIE GOODIE

sometimes i'm NAUGHTY NAUGHTY-

We all have that alter ego. That even twin that seems to show up from time to time. Somehow that evil heffa threw on your outfit and showed up at the party in your place. And there they go, damaging the reputation your worked so hard to protect.

Wait a minute, is that broad humping the floor at the club?!! C'mon, now that CANNOT be sanitary. *sigh*

And after 'NAUGHTY' has been out for a night of fun, you are left there picking up the pieces. Answering the questions from your friends "how did you get home last nite?" Dealing with the many nameless dudes calling ur cell phone. I mean really, how many Dre's are running around the ATL?!

And while cleaning up the house, trying to erase any evidence of NAUGHTY's visit... thats when you see it. The small suitcase in the back of the closet. Oh SH**, looks like NAUGHTY is staying for the summer.
