Hey people! Thanks for the congratulatory comments from my post about my New York trip and special shoutout to reader Simplybee for the suggestions, I will be taking you up on as many of those as I can!
I wanted to share a little tidbit with y'all....
WHY did I think that I was having pre-menopausal hot flashes at church on Sunday??? Like, seriously, I was sweating so hard! It was hot outside so in the beginning I thought that I just hadn't cooled down from being outdoors but I was still sweating after about twenty minutes.
I imagined that people were going to be able to see the sweat stains on my dress so I tried not to move and used my program as a fan until the usher (I said "ursher" in my head) gave me a fan. I wanted to take a picture of the church fan because it was so old school but it shole came in handy.
I then thought about the expression "sweating like a hooker in church" and started singing (in my head) "God is trying to tell you something" from The Color Purple although recent activities would not suggest anything remotely hooker-ish in my life *le sigh* but I digress. So I am sweating up a storm and furtively wiping sweat from my arms and legs until one of the pastors said during the announcements that something was wrong with the church air conditioning! I really think that they should have led the service with that, put a banner outside before you entered into the building or something. Had me thinking that I was not in control of my body and feeling some kinda way!#TeamInMyFeelings
Sidenote: Did everybody watch Being Mary Jane on BET? Didn't I tell you that it was gooooood? I was tweeting about the show on premier night and received this gem of a tweet from Salim Akil, husband of creator and writer Mara Brock Akil:
Men's shirt: Thrifted
White tube top: Random store in the mall
Camo shorts: Old Navy (men's department)
Belt: Thrifted (men's department)
Bracelets: InPink/Forever 21/Sam Moon
Consensus on my hair seems to be to keep the braids for my trip so I will. Now to figure out what to wear!
