LIFE with a Side of Bacon and Waffles

Three Saturdays ago, I began my morning at The Waffle House on University and the 101. The food was good, however, the company inside of the establishment is always a subject to keep your eye on. My last visit was around 10:30 am, I ordered the ALL STAR special: a waffle, bacon, eggs, and grits. Like I said, it was good. I tipped well, but not as heavy as I usually do, because they were a bit busy and slacking on the swiftness of service. Still, the food was good. In fact, that’s why I keep coming back; food consistency.

This weekend James Shaw, Jr. had a hankering for a waffle and ended up at a Nashville Waffle House franchise. All was well until a half-naked gunman comes in shooting. James was quick on his feet and fled to the restroom. The gunman kills four people and the gunfire stops. James sprints from the restroom and bum rushes the gunman – wrestling his gun away from him. James tosses the gun behind the counter and continued in a life-struggle until the half-naked man squirmed out of James’ grasps and ran. He is currently on the lam and James is being hailed a hero. He’s only 29-years old but embodied the courage of an entire police force since that’s what it normally takes to bring down a gunman whose taken public civilians hostage.

Four lives were lost and at the speed at which the half-naked man was shooting, it would have indeed been more had James not taken him down. James is without a doubt the ALL STAR of the Waffle House and the Nashville community today. Nothing tastes as good as life. James Shaw, Jr. preserved many this weekend.

I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty excited
to hear good news and be able to cite it.

I’ve been eating breakfast at home – no butter, bread or rice.
I’m conscious of my health and it’s preserving my life.

23-year olds Rashon Nelson, left, and Donte Robinson, right are being arrested. The man in the silver sleeveless bomber jacket is the friend that they were waiting on.

The Waffle House is cool if you want a good breakfast of such.
Thank God a gunman didn’t decide that he’d shoot up a Starbucks.

 

Can you imagine how our lives would have been further tested,
had just moments prior James Shaw, Jr. been arrested?

Last weekend at a Starbucks in Philly
2-black men were arrested and the manager looks silly.

The black men were arrested for waiting on a friend who was white;
he arrived as they were being handcuffed and lead off of the site.

How could this be legal, civil or constitutionally right?
Had James Shaw, Jr. been arrested – how many more would have died?

We need to think about it America. This is who we are.
We are patrons of a Waffle House and James is the All Star.

We all want to live a good life, laugh and be a dynamic lover.
Perhaps we all need to take a look at who we call sisters and brothers.

Breakfast has no race
and evil almost closed down that place.

Why the limitations? Life is a gift and it shouldn’t be randomly taken.

Drizzling morning wisdom atop of LIFE’s Waffles and Bacon.

Green Means

butter-lettuce.jpegIt’s almost 10:30 am,  H A P P Y 420 o’ WordPress kin.
Monday through Thursday did its thing, indeed and now it’s Friday again.

The day is dealt a 420 spin and Green is in the air.
Foliage costs money and foliage will burn in spare.

That Means today in Arizona folks will be happy in the streets.
There’ll be smiles and a “Hey child!” from most folks that I’ll meet.

Good people.
Incense fills their steeples.

What about you on this Friday? What have you got on the itinerary?
I’m going to take care of my health, spend a little wealth
and snack-out on chocolate & fruit but no dairy.

I just can’t swallow it.
I’m lactose intolerant.

Anywho, Green Means GO!
As it pertains to cash: Greens is overflow.

As it pertains to 420: Green means plenty
of concentrate and 3-tier smoke.

I’m Qui
Happy 420 to thee.
I’ll be yielding to meaningful research, yo.

Two’s Day

In Communication, Griot, News, Self Improvement on April 18, 2018 at 3:00 am

fist-bump-free-stockAnother glorious morning and we are up early to shape the day.
I call it Two’s Day because I like wordplay. I’m obnoxious; I like to play.

But not too much, a childish touch; I adore my playtime with you.
#1. My heart is saddened as the day is dampened by bidding Barbara Bush adieu.

A strong woman with life accomplishments that many of us may never achieve.
She and her beau were 73-years hitched, yo! Can you monogamously conceive?

If you woke up this morning, thank God for life, love, and the ability to read.
I know that you kneeled upon waking up to thank Him for your safe sleep.

Right? Well, that’s what’s up.
Now give God some praise and give me a fist bump.

I could stand for a hug, as well. Human contact is a fundamental need,
as is love, air, and food. Spiritually & physically to live, we must eat.

#2. Speaking of “eat,” I haven’t been eating well. I am brave and stand to face it:
Eating food is difficult to anyone who is new to wearing braces.

I am indeed new.
It’s Day 3 and I’m still having probs with “the chew.

Pray for a sister, too – right after you bless that meal. 🙂
I’m Qui
Smiling silver, still a giver of time for our united appeal.

Let go of all the dead-weight and hop onto “the heal.”
