Sometimes I am not sure where the hours in the day disappear to but before I know it, I’m doing the whole get-it-together-it’s-Monday routine. Anyway before I kick this week off, I wanted to let you know that by Tuesday I had had enough of my non-functioning cell phone. It was no longer refreshing. It was making it rather difficult to keep up with my social calendar.
Okay, so last week I was drowning a few of my work sorrows away with a friend during happy hour when I ran into my cousin’s boyfriend. Of course, I spoke and attempted to introduce him to my friend but as I opened my mouth to say his name I realized, I was about to introduce him by some other name that his mother didn’t give him. Ut-oh! Not only was I about to do that but I couldn’t remember this man's name for the life of me. WOW! This man has been dating my cousin for almost a year and I don’t know his name. I had to think on that for minute.
Then it all made sense (and ladies don’t kill me I just thought this discussion would be rather entertaining) for the last eight months, we called and referred to this dude as jump-off. Now of course he doesn’t know this but dang we must have used it a lot for me to almost introduce the man as jump-off!
At this point, I am thinking when the girls get together do we ever use real names? I know guys have their little code names but we rarely hear those unless they tell us. But my girls and I have used these codes names sometimes in the presence of the man in which we are referring. Tsk-tsk. (chuckle) Sometimes the names switch…you can go from being a "jump-off" to a "mister" without even knowing. Your woman might have even had a slip of the tongue and you never even realized it. (chuckle)
Well this morning, I am going to shout out a few of them. They all hold special places in our hearts. (chuckle)
Jump-Off: One minute you chilling and the next there is more than just the lights off.
Coach: You keep a sister on her toes giving her the little extra encouragement that she needs and not necessarily what she wants.
Father: Not to be confused with the pimp and I think this one is self explanatory.
WH: Ahh, everyone has one of these…work husband. (Well not everyone.)
West Coast: The long distance brother. Time stops and the relationship pauses when you are not in town, but picks right back up from where it left off when you are.
Mister: Ooo, “if you think hard work been doggin’ you before get ready for the big dog!”
Old head: I think is one is pretty common but chivalry is not dead here!
Wing MAN: Not the initial score but proves that first impressions might be deceiving.
Hooptie: a.k.a The overambitious, loves to make promises but just can’t seem to follow through...but we love him still, his intentions are good.
The Avatar: Whether he knows it or not, he IS the chosen one and has mystical healing powers.
Mr. Sandy Nipples: Last but not least, my favorite. Always knows how to show a sista a good time. Doesn’t matter who is there…Mr. Sandy Nipples puts a smile on you and your girlfriends’ faces.
We love you all & have a wonderful day! :)
Take a minute to shout out your favorites by code name. (chuckle)
Until next week…peace :)
