I walked into that grade 8 mixer like I'm finna dance. You know how there's that one kid in your grade or at your high school that could really dance. That day, I intended to be that dude. So as soon as the circle broke out I was in it. And after I wooed the crowd with the harlem shake and the c-walk I decided I was gonna go home early. But before I could leave, a girl whom I've never seen before came asked me if I wanted to dance. Looking at her, without hesitation I said.. "Yeah?" It was a slow song. Dilemma. Nelly, Kelly Rowland. I don't remember if I had talked to her through the whole song, or even made eye contact with her. But as soon as the song ended she started to walk out the gym. So I ran after her, and grabbed her arm and said "wow.. uhhm.. I didn't catch your name..?" She told me her name and she kept walking. And I stood there by the door, repeating her name under my breathe. I swear, I couldn't sleep that night. I just wanted the next day to start already so I can get to school and see this girl. I didn't even talk to her, I've never even seen her at school before. But this girl already had me losing sleep. So the next day I went over to where all us 8th graders hung out and I saw her sitting there. The best thing about being in 8th grade and liking someone, is that we don't care about anything. You like that person. You ask them out to be your girlfriend/boyfriend right away. Even if you haven't talked to them at all. So after school, I asked her out. And we went ice-skating. and we held hands. Long story short, we broke up 2 weeks later. She cried in social studies behind her textbook. But a week later she was making out with my best friend in the hallway.
Well, to get to my point.. these days, it's hard to meet someone organically. Some people will be confident enough to ask for your name then add you on facebook and look at all your pictures and mutual friends and figure out if they want to talk to you or not. Whatever happened to.. let's get some coffee? Or.. let's just have a long ass conversation about life and everything in it right here right now who cares if I have a dentist appointment at 4 kinda meeting. Whatever happened to.. "I'll see ya around".. leaving it to chance that maybe you just might see them again. It might cost a bit more, we might have to wait a bit longer but it's worth it to switch to organic. - God is Love
