Drama Baby!!



Number 24

It’s Monday, so how’s your day so far. Mine, pretty good. I got in early and did my work and left on time. There are days when you got to say, “forget it, I’m outta here.” I want to go home and read, walk my dog, eat dinner and have a nice pleasant evening. I’m so glad I don’t have drama in my house. I hear so many stories from my friends and their friends about the insane, fanatical and sick as a dog drama. Hey, I got a lulu for you.

About the early 80s, my girlfriend was getting married to a guy I knew in my heart was no good. Yes, I told her my opinion, I didn’t give a damn if she liked it or not and even if she thought I was jealous, the boy was crap from A to Z. He was good looking like Kodjoe Boris, who knew he was good looking and flaunted it all of the ding dong time. She actually wondered for a while why he wanted to marry her. She thought she was not good enough for him. Stupid, Stupid, I said. You are good looking inside and out, he’s the piece of crap from the dodo from a dog.

Let’s get back to the story, I’m rambling. The wedding was in one month and Mr. Kodjoe had to take a trip to California for business. What business, he worked for a furniture store. Who in the hell need to take a business trip when you don’t own the business nor have any stock in it. What a bunch of bullyrag. Weeks went by and he did not call her. She called and left messages after messages. My instincts told me something was up, but I could not convince her. She decides to surprise him. Now you know at this point in the story how many times have you read this scripture over and over again? Dragged me with her to the airport and like a fool I went.

We get to the hotel and there’s a wedding. We peek in to take a look at the decorations and such. Very beautiful red and white color settings. Well, we step into the bathroom before going up stairs and while she and I are in the stall, we hear some woman talking about the groom. To me, it sounded like Mr. Kodjoe, but I just though I was tripping. We go to his room and Lord and Behold, the man from the conversation in the bathroom, the groom, is Mr. Kodjoe and he is in bed with one of the women we saw in the bathroom. Not the bride, but her friend. My girlfriend was pissed. Me, I was in heaven (no, no, I did not tell her nor throw it in her face), she was hurt beyond hurt. We go to another hotel and figure we stay the night and fly back to DC in the morning, but no, she’s got an ideal and I’m in trouble. That crazy woman called Mr.Kodjoe and told him she wanted to come back and talk to him. I stayed down stairs of the lobby until she called for me. I figure she was going to cuss him out and slap him good. She goes to bed with him and while he was asleep, tied him up and poured honey all over his body. You are probably thinking, they are going to get their groove on again, but no, she leaves the room.
We are now on the plane and she finally tells me, after I fussed at her, that she left a jar of bees, yes Bees in the room. When he wakes up and tries to move, the bees sting his ass up and down California. I told that child, after I laughed my eyes out, that she could get into some real trouble with the police, but it was still funny.

He did show up a few weeks later back in DC. No scars that I could see, but he was dumped by the woman he was to marry and my girlfriend did not go back with him. We found out later that the maid at the hotel had called the police and told them as well as the finance who and what happen. The bride came to her senses after her girl friends told her about us that the fool was marrying two women at the same time. One on the East coast and one on the West coast. Now, that’s drama.

Here’s some more drama for yah!!!
