Romance, Reality, & the Importance of a Sandwich (Remix)

What's fucking up, Blogger Fam?!?! Yup! Ya girl's still down, but no longer completely out. Think I got over the worst of it this weekend, but I'm still not 100%. Supa kinda realized she's had a whole helluva lot going on lately...and this, and this, and then probably this played a role in her catchin' some bootleg version of SARS (just kidding, it's just the flu..or cold..or something..) and needing to just slowwwthe fuuccckkk down....and I could go into work tomorrow..but right now, I see absolutely no reason why I should. Supa got sick time, so 'Sup bout to use the hell out of it. How 'bout that?

Anyway! Thought I'd throw out a remix for ya! This repost is actually for my Auntie - when I called her the other night, she told me she'd just finished "making a sandwich." That's code for, umm...well, read on....

(miss ya'll!! hopefully tomorrow I'll feel up to checkin in on all ya'lls respective foolishness, lol!)

Oh, and Happy May Day! This is for la raza. (and I know LA traffic today was the fucking PITS)

******************




So yesterday, a cool co-worker who’s also a writer (not Robert H!) mentioned that he’d just returned from a week’s vacation in Ensenada. So Supa went about in her usual nosey way and asked him if the trip was a romantic type deal, or simply a chill-and-hang-out with-the-fellas thing…and please don’t ask me why, but that simple-ass inquiry spun off into an in-depth conversation/debate on romance and relationships and unrealistic expectations and played-out gender roles and the nature of men and women and the issues and scenarios that often keep us from connecting on an authentic, genuine, and human level.

And Jesus F. Christ, Supa wasn’t really trying to get into all that, okay? I'm more interested in trying to figure out who The Carver is on Nip/Tuck. Besides, talking about relationships makes my head hurt, and that’s my girl Jude’s specialty, not mine…But it turned out to be an enjoyable, perspective-swapping, funny-ass conversation with a delightful and witty brotha, and truth be told, we fucked off the rest of the afternoon on company time by entertaining ourselves with our insightful email banter. (damn it feels good to be a gangsta...)

And now...Supa remembers what kinda jump started the whole conversation. I was testing his rile factor by purporting that Supa had indeed already figured out what men really want. And that is: They want a woman to give him some good head, play with his balls, and then go fix him a sandwich. That’s it.

Hey. That’s what Dave Chapelle said.

So my co-worker went on to say that statement wasn’t ‘necessarily’ true, and how we as women tend to make even the simplest thing complicated, how we complain and seem to thrive on unnecessary drama (at least that’s what Chris Rock said), and then I conceded that maybe yes women have unique ways of verbally expressing themselves and some of us can be downright nags, but ya’ll shouldn’t be so sensitive and make it seem like we're trying to slice off your balls simply because we ask you to please take out the trash for the fiftieth time. Heh.

And then he busted out with a very interesting analogy, that went something like: imagine women being like the gifted children in the class and men being like the slow ones, and that you can’t expect the slow kids to speed up to the gifted kids’ levels, and the gifted kids need to take the time to help out their slower brethren, and when they do so, they need to talk using small words and speak very slowly. Or...something like that. And I think (?) he was kind of saying that we chicks have to have a little more patience and understanding, realize that men and women speak a different “language”, and that with good enough game, we can more or less bring a brotha up to speed with without beating him down with the stupid stick.

In other words…. Just give him some good head, play with his balls, and then go fix him a sandwich.

Richard Pryor (God bless his soul)once said about head and black women

"They like receiving but not giving"

Cocoa Girl said...

Not necessarily true, Aba boy.

I love to give, just as long as he's giving more.

LOL (but not really...)

Miz JJ said...

I don't know if I agree with all that. I think men act stupid so they can get out of doing any real work.

I only give head to get head. I know some women love doing it, but I am only doing it so that a dude will return the favor.

I like sandwiches alright but I love me some sweet anal. Can I call that the 'salad bowl'?

It's always 'no brokeback' of course.

Aba Boy said...

Hope I didnt start something...

Looks like Pryor was wrong....Sistas give head as long as they retain the power, or have the favour returned..

Brothas...take note, I know I have (well always had)

We miss Sup and her mental musings!

Miss P AKA Her Royal Cliqueness said...

Sup, I hear what you saying. I even agree to some extent. God knows it's hard for any man to be with a woman who can basically be real and let him know he can't do a damn thing for her she can't do for herself. BUT...and u knew there was one - sometimes men gotta stop step up and try to communicate on our level.

Even if it's just one day out of the month.

We get that we speak different languages. Sometimes we just don't care. You know, when in Rome and all that.

Just saying, every now and then they either need to stop and ask for directions from a native of our planet, pick up a language manual to learn the basics, or nod, grin and make pretend they get it.

nahmean?
