so -- what's the point of it all?...

Earlier in the week, when I was enroute to work and stopped to purchase gas, a young boy with dishelved hair aka doodoo locks, untucked button-up, you get my drift asked if I was married. So, I ponder where is he going with this… “no.” “well, you know you look good in your professional attire…” “thank you.” “and so I would like to call you sometime.”

Oh what irony we have here… you like the way I look to work and yet you look like some shit and you’re a damn baby. Has it come down to this. So, what’s the point of it all. Be’cuz I have brothers your age and in a sisterly way I pitied you wonderin’ why come no woman in your life has told you lookin’ a fcukin’ mess and that is not the business when in a professional environment.

Now on Sunday, an acquaintance’s brother revealed to me that he should have pursued me 3 years ago. flattering perhaps; however he is a newlywed with a damn baby on the way.Why, was it relevant for him to tell me this?
So, what’s the point of it all.

Then I reminisce back to when Rummy expressed her feelings on a similar topic and i find myself asking so--what's the point of it all?

Only, if these fellas knew how I adore these lyrics and song from Anthony Hamilton. And if a brotha ain't got me feelin' like this:

I can't stay away from you too long
Even if I do I'll always call
Checkin' on you make sure you're ok
Be the one to brighten up your day

And the point of it all
Is I love you
You know I love you baby

My days seem long whenever we're apart
It's like someone had thrown away my heart
You're a major part of my life
And no matter what the storm may bring
I'm fine with you,

And the point of it all
Is I love you
And the reason for it all
Is I love you

O I love
O I love you
O my love

I can't stay away too long
I can't stay away from you baby
LyricsDon't wanna be without you
I need you
O why don't you stay around for awhile

And the point of it all
And the point of it all
And the point of it all
And the point of it all
Ohhohh, and the reason for it all
And the point of it all
Is that I love you
Yeah, I love you

Whenever we're apart
It damn near starves my heart
And I don't ever want to be apart

then truly what is the point of it all?

Awwww! Young boy doesn't even get a half point for courage?

You're tough Bellini!

Oh and Momma Amaretto thinks that Little Mister at my party is truly madly and deeply in like with you too! ;)

Ha! I had that song on repeat all night last night. Always imagine it being sung and then my guy drops on one knee. A girl can dream.

As for young buck, I think he just needs to be schooled (and possibly groomed). I'd give him half a point for courage like Amaretto lol.

Bellini said...

@amaretto: no half points. that's the problem women keep giving male species credit when they ain't deserve shit--ev'ry point must be earned or else what's the point of it all? and if i you can't tell by now i heart anthony hamilton's music! & for Mama amaretto's comment -- i don't even know him at all, i couldn't even provide you with any vital statistics & secondly if you're my brothers age we ain't got much in common in my book

@au naptural: lemme find out you're kindred folk too -- keepin' music you like on repeat; that's how i roll too. of course a girl can dream, shoot for the moon--in the event we don't make it there we'll be among the stars remember to aim high

Courvoisier said...

Bellini, that is my jam!
I am with you on the half point. Hell no... no half points! (snap, snap)

Rum Punch said...

@ Bellini - Oh this and your accompanying comments made me laugh - because I know it's so true for you and I had flashbacks to last week's cookout. Tee hee. Just cause you don't know youngin' from the bday lunch's vital statistics don't mean he wasn't feelin' you. You see he was too nervous to eat. Had to get himself a salad. LOL!!

Bellini said...

@rummy: youse a nut! do y'all remember minty's post about love @ first sight -- i don't believe in that; be'cuz it takes time to determine if menfolk are crazy beyond one encounter, so no i didn't get the impression ya got, however i've been told that i don't cue in to many details men may give 'cuz i'm a straight shooter
