Rich Dad.. nah!..poor Dad..not so much either, but KOOL Dad!!."I'll take some of that action!

Ah..why yes, I'll take some of that action as the title states. Being at the edge of darkness with a teenager( a girl no-less). "The end of the WORLD as we know it"! Has come and gone a few times. We're still breathing( golf clap + mom's burning skull stare down,equipped w/smirk & attachments). The days flipped by so fast I lost count. I kinda waited for the 'other shoe to drop' looking for the "Dad I hate you rant" or the "Where's mom because dad you're just dad! you don't/wouldn't understand conversation". Don't get me wrong I've gotten on her nerves, YEEAAHH BUDDY! I've heard it through the mom pipeline. Ultimately they grow up and move out..or act like they triiied.The point I'm making is when they're old enough to want you around other than their prerequisite A.T.M.(If you have kids you have my permission to rock the #4life t-shirt). I honestly don't know what I've done to earn favor. "She likes me..she likes me..Hey Mikey"! I was deemed the heavy in my family. Even though her mom got right down to it at the drop of a hat. In my own family it was always "wait til Merle get's here" or "when I tell Merle about: insert WHATEVA dumba**  thing of the day(like ordering a flavored coffee drink)! I don't think you really sign up to be the heavy though, I think you're kind of nominated..sigh..such is life..whateva'. After awhile I stopped waiting...almost wishful thinking that my #ultimatefail came quickly.I couldn't wait to start the repair process. The slow start was baffling though..gotta' tell ya. I was preparing like I was a 'Dooms day prepper' or gearing up for The Zombie Apocalypse somehow!?! Then prom..WOW!!!Graduation was both liberating and freeing,but wait..s-l-o-w-d-o-w-n things were happening so fast. During those times you do a bit of reminiscing with your minion(s). They tell you stories about how you saved the day.. and not once..huh, who would've thunk? It's those times you don't think they remember. Uh oh! They remind us in vivid detail(immediate image of dad in commercial on sidewalk with what appears to be his little girl practicing her cheerleader cheers)'s groovy Google it..

The building of the BACKBONE! The latest trend and tested very high in focus groups!!!

Very few things bother me since the turn of the century..I find myself asking or trying my best to answer these quandaries we'll call them. The backbone.. from experience is suppose to gain strength as you age. The adolescence of a young man is crucial, I speak from 1st.hand knowledge. The proverbial building of a backbone start as soon as you can walk. Understood,challenged and acknowledged while going thru those male adolescent years. Some things cannot be duplicated online gaming or #twitterbeef/facebook rants and message boards.Verbal jousting(joning/ranking some call it) is a cruel albeit innocent way of coming of age(and so necessary). It introduces you to trash talking early in life. Whereas you're not a fully formed adult male and still NEED your mommy/daddy to do all your damn leg work. There's a point in your life as a man(operative word) BACKBONE decisions will need to be made and expected of you! Ownership and responsibility are things that randomly come up when mentioning anything that resembles a spine=man. At this point your 'proverbial' backbone should've been in full use now for some years. I don't wanna' hear how you put your foot down to get the newest gaming system/phone..Oh but the No Sir!! I mean a decision of merit YOU made with weight or responsibility attached. Buying a car, purchasing a home, moving out of your parents humble abode/or not etc..Deductive reasoning and talking to oneself about not making such a decision is human nature, no judgement here(The pimp hand is cocked in standby mode) but to walk through life with someone else making all of your tough decisions..for shame!! You may as well let them carry your scrotum and all it's attachments. I remember it being an honor to do your last name proud. Nowadays we'll change it in a New York minute for a gimmick.. say word #ochocinco(no shade #factsonly)..I can run with this but you get the gist...MM

Eye candy...Really? Im a Guy?!?

Here's the deal?!? I've heard from the Women. It's true!! it's so true Run Quickly!! The verdict is here to stay. They want more pictures of YOU!(less in the bathroom shirtless of course.. naughty naughty boy #tasteless) But yes! more pictures of you. The popularity of online dating is a fact that can't be denied. The trending look of bearded characters and their pets looking identical..without photo-shop is The 'shiznit' for friends&family(insert only a face that____ would love) JUST them though.. But then there's this post I'm writing. Fact is, taking numerous pictures juuust to get the right one is annoying as HALE to me also..

Friends! How many of us have them...

I mean the real kind! The boundary between real(ity)and virtual friends has s-l-o-w-l-y become a #blurredline in some of our minds. The rate in which people are acquiring "friends"on social media speaks for itself. Some think posting 'errthang' that comes to mind, or a bunch of likes and you're somehow kindred spirits.The X amount of "thumbs up" and smiley faces that people..."shiiit! bad",. FRIENDS! (got to be more careful,I nearly offended a generation) click in your direction, The more and more SHARING you do?!?
Nowadays the landscape of America has changed before our very eyes. This post became special to me in the middle of writing. I had an unannounced guest show up on my doorstep after 25yrs...

Diary of a Wimpy A$$ Kid(Man)..

Stop..stop! Hold the hell on. I've written about the sign of the times lately and "nice guys" finishing first. Somewhere in the proverbial laundry chute a few signals may have been crossed...A WIMP! was #not to be mistaken for being a nice guy. Being a wimp is something you may not readily admit(I can dig it). Obviously it's something you wouldn't shout from the rafters, but something that's definitely curable. Security for women is one of the most popular answers given(even from the most independent) when asked questions about what they need to"FEEL" in a relationship(PG-13 version ladies)...

Too cool to work?...I hope a passing trend.

It's 2014 people! I hope Too cool is NOT the new Ish! I'm talking about today's lack of work ethic in adult fully formed men! I remember years ago hard working was a trait to be proud of and men had to have it across the board in spade period! It was understood without question. To get the pretty girl to go out on a date... The job/promotion or business whatever was needed, but hard work and elbow grease was required. I've since been witnessing the coddling of men in America specifically.... As a man that's whom I address with a perplexed look.Understand when I say this post addresses a trend(hopefully passing) of men being too cool to work(a regular j.o.b. mind you). A trait needed to survive and navigate today's world and a necessity you can't afford to go without.I was always under the impression working hard for your money...legally!..(sigh,sad I still have to include that disclaimer but whatever man) was great for your self esteem(swag) and did more for your look than any materialistic item you could buy. Ask for a clue or buy a vowel, #Alex Tribek is rapping answers on jeopardy! He may give you a few: What is you need one?..answer: A work ethic!! Tightened up soft shoe!! Ask around..know that sex appeal comes with a steady job(or able to maintain one) and a work ethic attached to it..always did.There are other things in life that you may need help with..But This..THIS ISH RIGHT HERE!! It's alll you homeboy no excuses. Don't get left behind keeping your #swag alive or busy trying to #turn up saying #it is what it is...I'm just sayn.MM
