Sons of Anarchy…how come nobody told me about this show?! I’ve spent the better part of the week catching up on the series. My observations:
Katey Sagel is phenomenal The character she plays, Gemma Teller is a bad “shut-your-mouth!”
I want a Harley.
All of the bikers looks like they smell of oil, stale cigarettes, booze, and overall funk.
Stay in Your Lane
The Basketball Diaries
Hooping it Up
The Boy decided to join the basketball team.
I resisted for the longest because I feel like every time you see a young man of color, a basketball is nearby. Chris Rock once said he went to a “Black” mall and all he saw were baby stores and sports shops as if all blacks want to do is “run and f*ck.” That’s how I feel about basketball. A casual drive through my neighborhood and it seems that you can’t go past a street without seeing some kids playing ball. I didn’t want him to fall into the stereotype of a ball player. But he begged and got on my last nerve one Saturday so I let him go to practice.
As he listened to Couch P’s instruction then played in a scrimmage I realized basketball is not about a shoe endorsement or the large life. It’s about teamwork.
For now I’ll let him continue to be a part of the team. I’m still wishing for Atlanta 2020 and the 4×400 relay.
Mind…Your Own Business
The Mister and I were discussing our days and both of us have the same problem. We have co-workers who think it’s THEIR job to keep tabs on what we’re doing or not doing. Even with the kids I have always wondered WHY people make someone else’s business their business. If I told The Teen to clean her room and she isn’t, The Boy does not need to tell me. I will find out when I go to inspect her room. I’ve noticed that when he is telling on his sister, most likely his own room is still a disaster zone.
As I have opined on more than one occasion “Stay in Your Lane!”
What I do is not your concern.
Tomorrow I unveil a new feature! Stay tuned.
