giving wings to angels

Point of order: Thanks for all of yawl who sent them emails telling me about a certain blog mac daddy’s vitriol towards me. And as requested, I did not read nor respond to it. I am a man of my word. But don’t sleep, if I can do battle on blogs run by white supremacist and racist and Aryans, after death threats even, I can do it there. But I am a man of my word and do what I say. So I’m not sure if I should quote Rodney King “can’t we all just get alone”, or Michael Jackson “Beat it” or myself “It aint like getting hit by a car. Plus I didn’t even know I had a woman. So I will leave you with this: some folks think not getting caught in a lie is the same thing as telling the truth.

2] I got 6 slabs of ribs for $14.95 Saturday.

I am at the shop now, waiting on a delivery of dog food and some more dog clothes. You know UPS, between 8 and 5. I slept well last night. I don’t know if it was the Tequila or the slab or ribs and half a loaf of white bread, but I slept well. Such wasn’t the case the night before.

Jones, Main, folk here couldn’t sleep at all. I felt like a kid waiting on the first day of school, or for the fictitious Sinter Klaus to come sliding down my chimney. I was waking up every hour looking at my cell phone to se if I had missed my alarm for Monday the 25th, II would open my store.

Although my bags, flyers or business cards were not in yet, I was ready. For all off that night, even though I don’t have an old school cash register, I was hearing cash register rings in my head. As such, I felt like I had been thrown back into “It’s a Wonderful Life”. You know the movie they play each Christmas with Jimmy Stewart in it. Especially the scene when he had lost everything and had met his angel and gone to the bar. The angel told the bar tender that each time a bell rings that an angel gets their wings.

I love that move. Reminds you that no matter what you do, folks will criticize and attempt to undermine you via deceit (the banker). Even through jealousy and envy. It shows that the best way to win or succeed is too turn the other cheek. It reminds us to always speak your mind and never stutter and to live by your own actions and control your reality. Guess it means that folk can bend but never bee broken.

For today, I’m gone be giving out wings too angels while the devil or any form of veiled evil creeps and lurks. Cha Ching.

I may have never heard anything truer in my life.

Aunt Jackie said...

In Islam there is much talk about the evil eye and people believe that it's worth protecting yourself from. Those who are jealous can look at a person and/or their life with malintent in the eye with the desire to do them harm or wrong.

We are Muslims protect ourselves in many ways, mirrors, and the Hand of Fatima, which is protection from jealous people and the evil eye.

I have the Hand of Fatima tattoo'd on my back, since most folks will talk about you behind your back.

I might have to send you one to hang over the door of your store, so that nothing negative enters..

Stay up and watch that stock fly off the shelves...

That is so true
'some folks think not getting caught in a lie is the same thing as telling the truth'

I read dude's post - chest beating
You showed the diff. between a boy and a man by taking the high ground.

But like you said "age of the fuck boy"

memphiz said...

oh lawd don't tell me there are haters in the blog world... a mess. You keep on w/ your bad self lol.

Jaded said...

Hope all is going well with the store. I'd be in to buy stuff for my 2 dogs if I were closer.

Blog wars - unbelievably juvenile, aren't they? Sheesh.

Lovebabz said...

I am delicisously happy for you! "It's a wonderful life" is one of my favs too!

Keep the faith and keep it moving!

Cha ching, cha ching..Oh another angel gets their wings!

The Jaded NYer said...

so is the store open? how did it go?

I'm surprised there are no opening day photos!

Keli said...

Man…you got 6 slabs of ribs for how much?

I For today, I’m gone be giving out wings too angels while the devil or any form of veiled evil creeps and lurks. Cha Ching.
-ha! I feel ya…and you are so right by not addressing the haters…ignore them, and they will go away. I can’t stand attention seekers…insecurity is a biatch.

sista gp said...

For my 29th birthday, hubby threw me a party. He grilled 13 slabs of spareribs in addition to all the other food. Had about 45-50 co-workers, neighbors, family, and friends at the house. We only set out 2/3s of the ribs. We kept the rest for ourselves; we were not stupid. THEY WERE GOOOOD!!!

His brother grills the best T-Bones. Love it when he visits from DC.

Congrats on the store opening!

And for the drama, you know where I stand.

Rich said...

Hope the store opening went well and hopefully you are getting some sleep now.

See you in a couple of weeks folk.

Kayos said...

Tell them damn folks to stop hatin!

I can't stand people always tryna rain on somedamnbody's parade.

Where in the hell did you get 6 slabs of ribs for 14.95? If I send you some money, can you hook a sistah up?

Once again another good read.

JayBee said...

good deal on the slab of ribs. my greedy azz love some ribs. i can't help it. i'm a georgia boy at heart. i'm just reading this so if i'm understanding correctly, your grand opening was on the 25th. congrats. good stuff.


@ Mr. All Mi T

Yeah...I read some of the drama, it's really sad, I hope that you all can move passed it.

Congrats on your SUCCESSFUL first day! I know it feels so amazing!

And you know I HAVE WEIGHT PROBLEM, so why why why bring up the RIBS! LOL

Cha ching my brotha.

You are so right on with it. The best "revenge" is your success and I am certain that your latest venture is going to flourish beautifully!

Do you plan on expanding online so that your out-of-state peeps can be a part of your success? Maybe just the doggie clothes perhaps?

NOLIMIT said...

Piggy back on what ^^^^^ said, I need to see what the "hater" is saying....

So you had a HATER DAY!!! I told you everyday was HATER DAY!! No days off...

Tera said...

"...some folks think not getting caught in a lie is the same thing as telling the truth."

Ain't that the truth.

I envy the steal on the ribs! And you had Tequila too??? Hmmm, I don't remember being invited!

Anonymous said...

I think both of y'all are ineffective in your own (dis)respectful ways. How about trying to produce something effective rather than going against a guy who clearly talks basic "hood novel" rhetoric to a bunch of people who can't escape nor elevate their own inferiority? A guy gets 40+ comments talking about garbage. while others struggle mightily for even one!!

We piss me off...

dejanae said...

blog beef?

T.C. said...

clearly i don't know exactly what's going on with the other blogger but i myself am in a stance of silence and refuse to respond to some negative comments made about me...as my Madea always said, "it makes no sense to argue with a fool...let them argue by themselves..." so that's the stance imma take...

totally excited that the store is opening! I can't wait to read about all the stories...

keep inspiring!

Kyfs said...

"The best way to win is to turn the other cheek", but if you don't turn that cheek in a meaningful direction, your gonna do exactly what your adversary wants you to do. Haters love to see others self destruct, it makes their plight against you that much easier. That's why we must control our own reality "like you say", but we must do that wisely.

For they cannot sleep till they do evil; they are robbed of slumber till they make someone fall. ~Proverbs 4:16~

You got to find a way to survive cause they win when your soul dies. ~2pac~


bookfraud said...

you got six slabs for $15 -- are you sure they weren't cat ribs?

and to think i was in memphis last week. i coulda gotten you a cozy corner slab for $12.95 and fedexed it to you straight from the hub.

from a nice jewish boy who doesn't keep kosher.

no link from the blog hater? so i can post competing vitriol and start a pointless blog war that simply inflames passions rather than brings us together? c'mon, stop being so damn mature!

Anonymous said...

Proud of you man.
You represent us al well
I love that movie.
It and imitation of life are the only movies that ever moved me to tears

And the other guy, he has small dick syndrome and self esteem issues. He is like the killer in Silence of the Lambs. He admires you and covets you. So much that he wants all that you have. Sad thing is that he recognizes his educational and Intellectual inferiority in comparison to yours. He will never see or live in the places you have. He will never have multiple degrees or be as productive a writer as you so he hurts.

Again I know the store will be a success.
