A Monday

Monday-Fresh-StartGood morning dear one. How well did you sleep?
I took no melatonin and slept very deep.

I was up early this morning and am currently working out.
Yes, I’m on the gazelle giving myself hell; calories and I are in a bout.

What’s the news on the hill all about? Really.
Stormy is doing what the Nor Easter could not; salaciously silly.

It’s no new news that folks lie on their willy.
To think porn will be the winner of scorn… again it looks silly.

And so I’ve turned my cheek and I am ready to tackle a new day,
though I can’t help but think about the debacle surrounding McCabe.

He was set to retire today.
Instead, his pension appears to be floating away.

Heyyyy Monday! What’s really good?
What positive moves can we make in our hood?

fresh-off-the-boat_family-conversation.gifLet’s start with a conversation around the dinner table;
let’s explain to our youth the difference between acting unhinged and being stable.

We have to.
If we don’t – we’re screwed.

The youth are looking at the hill and deciding whether or not
they should grow up and act adult-like or continue to be a snot.

The latter, they cannot. We have to deliver that information.
What this country is going through is comparable to self-degradation.

A Monday is a great day to speak up and talk to a kin
about America’s fall and how we can rise again.

Good morning dear one, it’s so good to commune with thee,
I’m Qui
over here doing me, trying to make a challenging Monday feel like a breeze.


Monday looking…

QuiD_20141019While watching a Quentin Tarantino film (some years back), I learned what a Monday is. I laughed to no end and was glad to be hipped to the term.

So now I’m Monday looking and I’m happy about it.
Am I focused on winning today? Please believe it and do not doubt it.

Am I happy to be a red-based shade of brown? You better believe I am.
If you told me today was not a good one, do you think I would give a damn?

I love Mondays! And I’m not just talking about me and my kinfolk.
I love the 1st workday of the week. Work is the reason I’m not broke. 🙂

I love the 1st workday of the week. It’s my reconnect with you.
Do tell me of what your weekend was about? What did you say and do?

The COWBOYS are 6-1. I am certainly happy about that too.
The New York G’s ate defeat in the house of silver and blue.

I loved every minute of it too.
Mmm-hm, yes sir, and Ooo!

Me? I celebrated 24-years of wedded bliss with my high school beau on Sunday.
Me? ‘Seems like we’ve only been together for a few months and a few fun days.

He’s easy on the eye. He’s easy on my heart.
His fashion equals nerd. My guy is super smart.

Opposites do attract, and no I’m not saying that I’m dumb,
but when it comes to fashion sense, I’m down to yield him some.

And when it comes to adding up the cost, he does it in his head.
He brings home the big bacon. I make a little bread. 🙂

I ain’t mad at all, because I’m real good at cooking.

Glad to share this intimate moment w/thee, I’m over here Monday looking.

How about you?
Start this week out laughing at the truth.
Show your teeth and push on through.
I’ve got your back. I believe in you.

Being a THANKFUL Being

Yep! I’ve never shied away from saying THANKS. I am by far the most THANK YOU saying person, most folk that I know have ever met. In fact, I’ve heard that my repeated THANK YOU responses coupled with my bubbly, happy-go-lucky attitude has killed many a professional colleague on many occasions. I never mean to be a nuisance, but to not be happy and to not say thank you would be totally out of my character and well…it would make me feel uncomfortable.

Sure I know some folks that grimace at the thought of having to do
Something as simple and inexpensive as saying “THANK YOU”.

I’ve never understood why they wouldn’t – I don’t put much thought in it;
But to render it when it is due is a great investment – do spend it.

Say THANK YOU as much as you can; whenever a kind gesture moves you to say so,
And you will find folks will return it in kind – as you go about your to and fro.

Trust me I know – I’m ramping up even more as Thanksgiving draws near.
I’m grateful for my life, health, and strength, as well as those who I hold dear.

I’m thankful THE COWBOYS WON today. I’m thankful they finally WON at home.
I’m thankful that I could watch it in Ag-town, residing so close to each end zone.

I’m thankful DON LEMON got so much face time this weekend & FREDRICKA WHITFIELD too,
I’m grateful CNN continues to reflect positive faces that look alot like me and you.

I’m really happy you stopped by to read me – I’m definitely A Monday Lover off the cuff.
Other races call black folks “A Monday”; and I — just can’t get enough.

I’m looking forward to THANKSGIVINGregardless of the 5-course fancy meal,
I’m Qui
THANKFUL for the opportunity to get literal with you & film reality on the reel.

Thank You, thank you, THANK YOU SO MUCH
