All you gotta do is just walk away and pass me by
Don't acknowledge my smile when I try to say hello to you, yeah
And all you gotta do is not answer my calls when
I'm trying to get through
To keep me wondering why, when all I can do is sigh
I just wanna touch you

I just wanna touch and kiss
And I wish that I could be with you tonight
You give me butterflies inside, inside and I

All I gotta say is that I must be dreaming, can't be real
You're not here with me, still I can feel you near me
I caress you, let you taste us, just so blissful listen
I would give you anything baby, just make my dreams come true
Oh baby you give me butterflies

I just wanna touch and kiss
And I wish that I could be with you tonight
You give me butterflies inside, inside and I
I just wanna touch and kiss
And I wish that I could be with you tonight
You give me butterflies inside, inside and I

If you would take my hand, baby I would show you
Guide you to the light babe
If you would be my love, baby I will love you, love you
'Til the end of time

I just wanna touch and kiss
And I wish that I could be with you tonight
You give me butterflies inside, inside and I
I just wanna touch and kiss
And I wish that I could be with you tonight
You give me butterflies inside, inside and I
I just wanna touch and kiss
And I wish that I could be with you tonight
You give me butterflies inside, inside and I

throw on a JDilla beat and watch all of the heads bob

i wish Sarah Pale-lynn would run for president. i need more jokes

if you tell folks that you're having a baby, you'll see everybody having suggestions for baby names. thanks but no thanks.

speaking of baby names, a female friend of mine told me..."I hope you're not gonna give your baby a white name?!?" um...helloooooo...my name is KYLE. i didn't know ANY black people named Kyle when I was growing up.

i don't get into the black and white, but i'm into common names.

this weather is crazy. pray for the victims of these violent storms

games in high def is the best thing since sliced bread

my son Kameron (age 8) asked me if i could grow an afro. i told him i didn't want one. he said..."why not? you had one when you were my age."

not only is Sammy Sosa light skinned...but he's Ricky Ricardo

ladies...be careful with your words to men. the wrong words can pierce through a man's spirit and soul

fellas...stop flossin' material possessions. most women don't care about that. they wanna know about YOU

Scottie Pippen must have been on crack, ecstacy, and heroin to say that Lebron James could be better than Michael Jordan. stop being a prisoner of the moment. nobody is better than MJ

NFL lockout...*sigh*

Dad called me the other day to give me props for the poetry that i posted on the blog. he said he didn't know i could write that well. yes Dad...your son has skills!

Kris Humpries proposed to Kim Kardashian with a 20.5 carat ring that costs 2 million dollars. Yet, his NBA salary is only 3.2 million dollars. and you want me to believe HE bought it for her??? nope! not buyin that theory. she bought it for her damn self

marriage is 'sposed to be forever. if Kris wants to lay with dead fish Kardashian for the rest of his life, then it's on him. we saw the tape, bruh. she's dead fish...

it's in your eyes

I see it. You see it. It can't be denied.

Look closely. Deeply. It's in your eyes.

The love and adoration you have for your man

You shower him with the love that nobody else can

Physically, emotionally, connected to a bond that can't be denied

Love is being worn on your sleeves and you wear it with pride

Those eyes pierce through him and touch his soul

From the first date, it was with him whom you thought you'd grow old

You've both enjoyed the trials and tribulations that you've shared along the way

You have that real love and forever it will stay

The good. The bad. The ugly. You've seen it all.

Through it, you both stood tall.

You're unlike most people who would run to the nearest court to make it end

The love stayed strong because your were comitted to your best friend

The epitome of success

Thirty plus years of marriage and you passed the test

When we look at you, it's what we aspire for all marriages to be

Your love is never hidden. It's bright, visible for the world to see

It's never been about kids, money or careers

True love stands the test of time through the years

You both could part tomorrow but the love would never demise

For we will always see your love...because it's in your eyes.

5 questions NOT to ask a man...

5 Toughest Questions Women Ask

There are five things that women should never, ever ask a guy, according to an
article in an issue of Sassy magazine.

The five questions are:

1 - "What are you thinking?"
2 - "Do you love me?"
3 - "Do I look fat?"
4 - "Do you think she is prettier than me?"
5 - "What would you do if I died?"

What makes these questions so bad is that every one is guaranteed to explode
into a major argument and/or divorce if the man does not answered properly,
which is to say dishonestly. For example:

1 - "What are you thinking?"

The proper answer to this question, of course is,

"I'm sorry if I've been pensive, dear. I was just reflecting on what a warm, wonderful, caring, thoughtful, intelligent, beautiful woman you are and what a lucky guy I am to have met you." Obviously, this statement bears no resemblance what so ever to what the guy was really thinking at the time, which was most likely one of five things:

a - Football
b - Baseball
c - How fat you are.
d - How much prettier she is than you.
e - How he would spend the insurance money if you died.

According to the article, the best answer to this stupid question came
from Al Bundy, of Married With Children, who was asked it by his wife, Peg. "If I wanted you to know," Al said, "I'd be talking instead of thinking."

The other questions also have only one right answer but many wrong answers:

2 - "Do you love me?"

The correct answer to this question is, "Yes." For those guys who feel the need to be more elaborate, you may answer, "Yes, dear." Wrong answers include:

a - I suppose so.
b - Would it make you feel better if I said yes.
c - That depends on what you mean by "love".
d - Does it matter?
e - Who, me?

3 - "Do I look fat?"

The correct male response to this question is to confidently and emphatically state, "No, of course not" and then quickly leave the room. Wrong answers include:

a - I wouldn't call you fat, but I wouldn't call you thin either.
b - Compared to what?
c - A little extra weight looks good on you.
d - I've seen fatter.
e - Could you repeat the question? I was thinking about your insurance policy.

4 - "Do you think she's prettier than me?"

The "she" in the question could be an ex-girlfriend, a passer-by you were staring at so hard that you almost cause a traffic accident or an actress in a movie you just saw. In any case, the correct response is, "No, you are much prettier." Wrong answers include:

a - Not prettier, just pretty in a different way.
b - I don't know how one goes about rating such things.
c - Yes, but I bet you have a better personality.
d - Only in the sense that she's younger and thinner.
e - Could you repeat the question? I was thinking about your insurance policy.

5 - "What would you do if I died?"

Correct answer:

"Dearest love, in the event of your untimely demise, life would cease to have meaning for me and I would perforce hurl myself under the front tires of the first Domino's Pizza truck
that came my way."

so...trump and romney announce they aren't running for office. good for them because they weren't gonna win anyway.

the last thing David Stern wants to see is a NBA Finals without Kobe or Lebron. not a good look as his league heads into a lockout next fall

why are the Facebookers concerned about who views their page? they are YOUR friends and YOU accepted them to view your page.

it was 94 degrees here one day...three days later it was 61 degrees. global warming?

Robert "Tractor" Traylor (RIP)

TNT's NBA coverage is second to none

knocked up

Somebody is pregnant.

It aint me! LoL

Actually I don't think it's humanly possible for me to be pregnant.

However, my wife is. Yes...we are expecting our fourth (and last) child. After churning out 3 block headed boys, we'll be having a girl. The streak is over. LoL

Funny thing is that I didn't know it was the MALE who determined the sex of the baby. Don't blame me...I got a "C" in sex ed in college.

Nevertheless, I ask that you keep us in your prayers. I will admit that it was hard to keep this a secret. LoL. Sharing the news with the few who've known for a while was kinda tricky. It was hard to tell one person. And it was difficult to try to "sneak" and buy 5 cigars for my OCEAN CREW without them noticing. I even had to show a few of my BBM friends a picture of the ultrasound because the didn't believe me. They all know I'ma jokester! LOL. Nevertheless, I'm sharing the news with y'all now. In the process, I found out that 2 of my peeps are pregnant as well. Something in the water? Hahahah

Can you imagine how it'll be for this lil girl with 3 older brothers? People say I'ma spoil her. Hmmm. We'll see.

Picture me doing hair! Funny, aint it!

Who We Be

Here I am. Here we are. You see us as we take our stand.

You look with amazement. But you don't know this man.

Fearless. Powerful. Destined for success.

You can step to me if you want but I don't take no mess.

Never bitter. I could never be mad. It's just not me

I am the man that some wish that they could be

We are far from the dudes that you see on the 6 o'clock news

Ask me and I blow you away with my political views.

You see my walk. You love the way we bop down the street

Put some music on and watch us vibe to the beat

The mind of Martin, Malcolm, and Barack

The fight and drive of Tupac

We have what the young kids now call swag

It's just confidence. Admire it. Don't hate...don't be mad

Lover of our queens and those who preceded us to pave the way

You can try to kill me and my brethren...but we're here to stay

We are fathers, husbands, brothers, friends...all of the above

Our women stand by us and adore us. They always show us love

I see you staring, watching every move...just like you're a fan

Who am I? Who are we? We are what you wanna be but can't be. The intelligent black man.

I saw her.

I wasn't looking for her but I saw her.

She looked good, too.

One day last week, I was flipping through the channels and I saw her. There she was...in the middle of a rap video that came out in 2001. As usual, she was featured in a video that showed off her body but the song had nothing to do with the video. Typical for most rap videos. But she had IT.

Nice firm hips...

Toned and tanned legs...

Pressed long hair (or weave...i can't always tell the difference)...

Breasts that were more than a handful...

An azz that was meant for squeezing...lol

Lips that you could kiss all day.

She had IT! She had the kind of body that most men would drool over. In fact, more than a few men HAVE drooled over it. I asked myself..."Man, what is her name?" Who knows? Who cares? Do you see that body?

I really couldn't rememeber her name. She was a video vixen. Some women don't like video vixens. Most men love em. As I watched her dance and gyrate, I asked myself, "Wonder what she's doing now"? I mean, I'm SURE that she's not doing videos anymore. The shelf life for video vixens is not that long. What do you do when your body and face ain't the hottest on the block no more? Do they settle down and look to get married and have kids? Do they try to get into acting? I was once told that "women have it more difficult because they are always comparing themselves (and their bodies) to what they USED to look like." Well I guess that makes it tougher for video vixens who have to "retire".

Do they have a pension plan? What's next for them?

Can they go back to being a "regular chick"?

Will the regular chicks ever show them some love? Prolly not. LOL. Don't worry video vixen...the men love ya.

juss friendz

Are we products of our environment?

Are we victims of circumstance?

Maybe we're somewhere in between?

Relationships are a funny thing when you think about it. Especially when it comes to marriage. You have a man. You have a woman. These two people grew up separately and have lived vastly different lives. They find some commonalities within each other that brings them together. They grow close. Love ensues. Then they decide to spend the rest of their ENTIRE lives together and expect it to work. Sounds perfect, right?



I'm being funny but you get my point. I was having a conversation with a good female friend of mine and we were discussing marriage. During the conversation, I realized how "different" some of my views were on marriage. These views were shaped by the marriage that I saw crumble right before my eyes. My parents divorced when I was 14. It came as a total shock. One day we were a happy family. The next day, they sat me and my younger brother down to tell us that they were getting a divorce. It hit me like a ton of bricks. They never ARGUED and yet they were splitting up? You don't understand how things are when you're that young. You learn as you get older. I've done a 10 yr bid in this marriage thing. LOL. I've learned some valuable lessons over the years. Marriage is hard. It's work. It's work...even when you don't wanna work. Just like love. Love is the ultimate verb. It's something you DO. Marriage is rewarding, tho. I hear people talk all the time about wanting to get married. There's nothing wrong with that. The question is...do you want to PUT IN THE WORK?? It's like saying..."I want to be in the NFL". But if you're not willing to get your body in shape, then it's all pointless.

My parents had a messy divorce. Dad got married again. Mom is still single. I don't think they were ever the friends that you need to be when they got married. Did they rush into it? I dunno...I wasn't here. I can't say that they hated each other when it was over but there was some extreme dislike. But a funny thing happened some 13 yrs later...they became grandparents. It was then that they had something in common. They went from being distant strangers to grandparents who marveled with pride about their new grandson. I laugh at them now. They talk all of time. Safe to say they are friends now. Last year, they came to my house to celebrate Deion's 5th grade graduation. They actually stayed under the same roof...for the first time in more than 25 yrs.

Friendships should come before marriage. A strong friendship is the foundation. Always keep that in mind.

As for my parents, it came after marriage. And I'm cool with that.
