As I'm turning 40...

there's a few things that I've learned that I can no longer tolerate. I've compiled a list of just a few and as the year progresses, I know that I'll learn more.

1. Milk: My body doesn't do milk any more. At first, I ignored it because I had to have my ice-cream with the little Reese's Cups in it. Then, I realized, "Hey, something is not the same. Everytime I eat this stuff I get gas." I thought it was the ice cream, but low and behold it was the lactose! Ugh!!!! Now that I'm closer to 40, I can't even eat/drink it with Lactaid. So, guess what? I'm turning towards vegan.

2. Ignorance: Who can tolerate ignorance well? I definitely can't handle a date who can't stimulate me intellectually. The know-it-all is a turn-off, but I do like someone who can hold a conversation. I had a date and while we were at the table looking at the drink menu he asked, "What's a signature drink? Ain't that when they sign it?" You've got to be kidding me! He was my age and didn't know what a signature drink was? He didn't have any conversation so when I talked about something I've read about he'd say, "Dang, my boo is smart!" First of all, I didn't give him permission to call me boo and at 40, I don't want to be a boo!

3. Pushy Men: Okay, as I'm meeting a few men and going on dates, let me make this clear - I will not tolerate any more pushy men. I'm so tired of having a nice evening out and allowing Mr. Wrong to sit comfortably on my couch and watch TV. And, then when he assumes the moment is right, he grabs my hand and place it on his penis. Or, grabs me and tries to pull me on his lap. And that's when I put him out of my house! I can't tell you how many times that has happened. I don't know who told men that that was sexy or attractive, but I'm a lady and expect to be treated that way.

Okay, that's enough for now.


  1. Number two was just sad. There are no words. When in doubt just shut the H3LL up!
    Number three is UGH! Really? You made me appreciate Titus that much more. I'm gone pray harder for you, cause you definitely deserve MUCH better!!!

  2. You are too funny! Yes, just shut up! Geesh! Please pray for me, I need it. Gurl, why do you think I admire you all so much? I know what I'm holding out for.
