Flip the script

I suppose it was inevitable that President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama would be come an iconic couple. A lot has been written about their date nights, affection towards one another in public, and the history of how they came to be.

It all brings a discussion about love, romance, and marriage, especially among African Americans that sheds some light on our attitudes. One particular article that has made its rounds on Facebook, Twitter, and other social networking sites is from the Washington’s Post interactive site, The Root. It was entitled What Single Women Can Learn from Michelle.

Of course it doused gasoline on an already hot fire of debate between men and women, which is always annoying fun and informative.  I actually thought the article made some excellent points. I just thought it would be vindictive fun and informative to flip the script a little:

What can single men learn from President Obama?

Do you think that we place too much blame on each other for the state of dating, marriage, and divorce?

Are we not all culpable when things don’t succeed?

Is it important for society to have a couple for us to believe in love and romance? Is it to give the children hope or are the grown ups clinging to the idea too?

*Note this is not an opportunity to bash First Lady Michelle Obama. Let’s keep things adult.

CEMEELI (Non-Flirty & Without Sexual Innuendo). Leave me lone, gal. You started with the nekkid bodies makin music mess and I let it go. You know you got advance tickets and ya body painting kit at the ready, mama.

CUTIE. That would be one heck of a Mixtape, huh? To keep it musical, we’d call it a Sampling Party :oops:

BOAZ. Chantal would let you help plan -just get yaself all riled up- then turn you away at the door. She’s kinda cruel like that – send you home to make some new drum beats with Queen ;)

Just to fugg wit W8…

You’re the type of guy to drive a girl wild
And you’re the type of guy to make a girl smile
Boy you’ve got me tripping deep down inside, and all these feelings for you that I have I can’t hide
People say, don’t get down with you, but I know how I feel for you
Though I may deny it, I’m digging you and that’s how I…
