Shoe Personality of the Week: 9/28
I don't believe (notice how unsure I am) I would actually wear these shoes, but looking at them makes me feel good. I was a Hello Kitty fan when I was little and she didn't have nearly as much stuff as she's got today. Hello Kitty is a major brand these days, and she's got friends I didn't even know existed. The girl's grown up and she's out here doing it big and clockin' these dollaz. I wish she had all this 'nalia when I was younger...some more stuff for my mother to tell me no, but it's all good.
These shoes make me remember when...
Back in the day/
when I was young/
I'm not a kid anymore/
but some days/
I sit & wish I was a kid again...
I remember when I was allowed to walk to school by myself for the 1st time...
...the Kwanzaa I received my 1st boom box and Billy Ocean's TAPE to play in it
...wanting that Woodstock (from the Peanuts Gang, loved him too) figure so much I just put it in my pocket when My Mom Said No
...telling Omar to close his eyes so I could kiss him, but walking away instead (he deserved that shit)
...Doin' the Butt at school dances
...kissin' my boyfriend Kevin on the back steps before my Mom came home from work (& really liking his friend Earl more)
...buyin Super Lover Cee & Cassanova Rud, Salt-n-Pepa, Doug E Fresh and Bobby Brown's ALBUMS for my 1st house party
...walking through the Citadel with Kim and Netta
...Du'Shawn GONE of that Easy Jesus (E & J) @ ________'s party
...sneaking out the backdoor of my grandmother's house to go talk to Mike cuz I liked his brother Richard
...playin the role of Left Eye in a high school talent show (but I only remember 1 of the other 2 girls)
...KoKo's bday party & Ma making coffee for the fools who came drunk
...throwin the Xmas present MJ got me at him (containing bottles)when I found out about that girl at his house over the wknd
...turning 17 with friends at Bennigans. It felt so big then
...Mary J Blige, Father MC and Jodeci with no parental tag alongs, just me & my girlfriends
...the pajama jammy jam me & Chaka threw & skippin school to go pick out our matching sets
These shoes remind me of when things were simpler. I'd buy them just for that, and keep them in the box. This week is dedicated to the spirit of beautiful days gone by.
Watch me move.
