Day 1 (all that bull)
Most of us, at some point in our lives, have obsessed about dying. I ended my obsession long ago. I already know that I will go one of two ways: if old age doesn’t get me, a Black woman will be the death of me. I got an e-mail yesterday from some ole sweet thang saying “Freedom, I love ya, but, the “lower-case” bullsh*t has got to stop! Now! I can’t tell where one sentence ends and another begins. Cease and desist!” What the . . . ? Freedom does what Freedom wants to do! I got my own style. But, alas, here I am with the capitals and such. Old age or a Black woman. One or the other – that’s how I’m going out.
I just joined NaBloPoMo the other day. For the uninitiated, that’s an acronym for National Blog Posting Month. It’s a site dedicated to helping bloggers get into the habit of posting on a regular basis. The idea is to make a post each and every day for one month – without skipping a day. The only problem with it is that I am not too fond of the topics that they list. Each month has a specific topic that each blogger is to post about for that given month. Looking at the previous topics and the current one as well, it ain’t gonna happen! Freedom don’t roll like that. Freedom writes about whatever is on his mind at the time. Therefore, in an effort to kickstart this blog, I will attempt to make a post every day, right here, from today until August 9th, 2008. Yes – this post counts as day one. You didn’t really think that I would let all of these good words go to waste, now did you? So as not to infringe, I have decided to call it “Blog marathon”.
Don’t send me no more e-mails tellin’ me what to do! That goes especially for you Black women out there. You know that I can’t resist your demands. If you should come across a topic that you think would start a good discussion, by all means feel free to let me know. That doesn’t mean that I will necessarily take you up on your suggestion, but, at least, I will give it some consideration. Why? Because you know Freedom don’t take orders from nobody! Well . . . nobody but a Black woman. Peace.
