Tattoos, Cigarettes, & Shoes

I recently had dinner with a group of friends when the topic of dating came up.  One of the men mentioned how he was finding it hard to meet lady-like women.  I challenged him on this because I know plenty of lady-like women who are sophisticated and classy.  How is it that he manages to not to meet them in Atlanta?

He tells me that a lot of women have an image of sophistication but when you get a closer look, they have tattoos and they smoke, which apparently isn’t lady-like behavior at all.  I’m sure we all have our preferences in dating, but do you think judging a person by their tattoos and smoking habits is fair?

I think it goes deeper then judging a book by its cover.  One of the women at the table said that she actually checks out a man’s shoes. When I asked her what a person’s shoes says about them, she said that it lets you know how much they care about appearance. Now, what does that have to do with character? She never truly correlated the two, in my opinion.

I have said it before, but we have ridiculous reasons for ruling out a potential mate. Are tattoos, smoking, and shoes legitimate reasons to pass on someone? What is the most superficial, ridiculous reason you dumped someone? Have you changed your ways since then? Do you still rule people out because of something somewhat trivial?

This Magic Johnson/Isiah Thomas thing is messed up. I am not an Isiah fan, but I dunno if Magic was right for airing all the dirty laundry in a book for a paycheck.

Awww, PoppaG, I sense the disappointment. Going to a kiss concert on a Monday night. You will probably have a headache and your eyes will be bucked for all the sights you’re about to see.

Just found out from a co-worker that Shthead texted her several times asking about me last night.

Apparently, someone mentioned to him that they had seen me out recently.

SexyCool – some can say I’m childish but this should have made your day….esp when they went left on you. You should go out skipping cause the best revenge is doing well

You see how I do.
I be Scool’n em.
And with my laid back vibe
I be fool’n em.
If you step to me,
You’ll get dealt with.
I try to back down
But can’t help it.
Now this is a game
So, don’t get all mad.
Try to meet me outside.
And jump all bad.
I just dropped 16 bars.
Cause I’m playin’.
But no more free spit’n
Til ya’ payin’.

CORRECTION sweet thang…I don’t want to see your musty balls.

You said:At a 200 member event, if there are 100 women and 85% of them want a dude 6′4″, but at the same venue there are only 5 of 100 6′4 dudes, are 50 chicks sharing the same 5 d!cks?

I want to know why would a man be worried about 1 dicky and yo dumb azz is worried about 5

@PoppaG, I rode in listening to 104.1 this morning and Jay Anthony Brown and Tom Joyner were cracking up over certain song choices referring to the book. WHT did I miss. Can you give me a brief outline of what’s going on. Jay Anthony Brown espcially cracked up over the song “Where Can I Stick it.”

Yeah, there is a little disappointment. However, that just means that Tuesday will be a “mental health holiday”.

I guess that the sights can’t be much worse than when I went to a Cinderella (80s hair band) concert a couple of years ago. 30-40 year olds acting like teenagers.

Professor – I can only assume that you can’t follow the logic of the question, and therefore attack that which you have no understanding of. At one point in time, not many moons ago, I would’ve let’chu have it, and got right up in yo azz. But I’m a better Man these days, so I’ll let you have it.

Magic wrote the following in a book:

He heard that Isiah questioned Magic’s sexuality after Magic announced that he had HIV.
Magic played a part in keeping Isiah off the 1992 “Dream Team” in Spain.Those are the two main things that have been mentioned since the book hasn’t been released yet.

Some reporters got a advanced copy and asked Magic about it. He admitted to putting it in the book.

Magic isn’t hurting for money. He owns most of the Burger King’s in the City Limits of Atlanta. The ones on Ponce De Leon, Northside Drive are among the Burger Kings that he owns. He also owns part of Checkers, too.

He hasn’t had much to do with that defunct theater in years. (Once AMC bought it, he was really out.)

The book is one shared by Larry Bird.

@PG…. All Magic stated was the obvious, the NBA players did not like Mr. Thomas. See that’s Karma for Isiah snubbing Jordan during the All-Star Game it always come on ya!

Actually, BK – using your numbers – there are 85 chicks sharing the same 5 dizzles which averages about 17 chicks per dizzle.

And if you believe all the hype about the men to women ratio in Atlanta – well, yeah – I guess 17 chicks per dizzle may be kinda right.

But then too – Let’s remember that of those 5 dizzles,

1 is too small
1 don’t work
1 comes too quickly
1 is down low

So…you are left with one dizzle for 85 chicks.

ESPN has an article about the book. Isiah claims that he is hurt with all of this. Just to think that they kissed each other on the cheek before their games during the 1988 NBA Championship series. They really have gone the other way.

I think that one of their reporters actually wrote the book.

If you are apologizing before you’ve fully inserted, you came too quick.
If you are screaming Lawd Geezus before I got my knees all the way up to my chest, you came to quick.
If the second hand didn’t make it back to the starting position, you came too quick.
If you are shaking and twitching before I could finish spelling your name and your name is Joe, you came too quick.
If you curled up in the fetal position sucking your thumb and I couldn’t get “Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” out, you came too quick.
