Earlier this week I asked Ms. Cupitonians, if her blog would like to be my blog’s Valentine. She replied in the affirmative. She didn’t even ask for my blogs number; further proof of how progressive Ms. Cupitonians and her blog are especially given my blog’s reputation for being, well easy. One or two nice comments my way and I’m face deep in throat cancer Michael Douglas style. ( Is that art imitating life or just how I get down, literally ?)
What’s Valentine’s Day without …
A Card ?
Every women who has relented, and accepted as terms of her defeat, being my Valentine’s for a day has received a hand-made card from me. Being that very few have ever relented I have been forced to created special ‘future scenario Valentine’s Cards’. I created these two just in case I ended up, like many black-men before me, succumbing to either the stereotype of getting Diabetes or a chatting with lovely white woman who was into a black guys.
(Don’t you wish you took me up on my offer to design a free Valentine’s Day Card for you! )
So I had to create a special card for Ms C, something funny yet sophisticated. She is easy on the eyes young and full of life, and has a wicked sense of humor and her blog being her creation has been endowed with the same qualities. I wanted something that embodied the spirit of my blog. I want something, humorous, informational, and bit crass, but supportive of a woman’s rights.
I sat around for hour and couldn’t think of anything until it hit me. In that moment of epiphany I realized that I had to go back to my original inspiration for the blog: the movie Mary Poppins. You see Mary Poppins was the first time I got introduced to the idea that truth while it can be a catalyst for change like medicine also tastes like shit, and we need to add some sweetness to it to help in ingesting it. The Lyrics are very clear on this fact:
In ev’ry job that must be done
There is an element of fun
You find the fun and snap!
The job’s a game
And ev’ry task you undertake
Becomes a piece of cake
A lark! A spree! It’s very clear to see that
A Spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down
The medicine go down-wown
The medicine go down
Just a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down
In a most delightful way
So After Much Tinkering
I realized that my life has been filled with bitter moments, and I’ve grown used to the taste. As a result I would rather take my medicine straight and save the sugar for others who need it more. So without further ado:
From the ASpoonfulofSuga Blog to the Cupitonians blog
Follow Ms C’s Blog if you don’t already
Reblogged this on This Labyrinth I Roam! and commented:
I had never really thought of the idea that you could take another blog for a Valentine. I’m going to try doing that every year from now on. For now, here’s MrMary’s Valentine to me. If you don’t already follow him, you should!
You are too funny. Should I be upset that I didn’t receive a valentine request? 😉
I’m glad this post was able to make you laugh or smile. I have a spring in my step now because of your comment and once I get off this chair I plan to put it to work getting some water in the kitchen. I would have loved to send you a valentine request but i didn’t know pre-emptively if my brand of humor would offend you, and no joke I would get really bummed out if I inadvertently offended you. With that said I’d be happy to collaborate with you any time or make you one of my personalized cards 🙂 lemme know
Never to worry, I’m not easily offended and I’m glad you liked my comment. 🙂
I have some ideas for a collaboration maybe one of these days I can email them to you and we can talk about it from there ?
Sure! I love collaborations!
Awesome I will email you soon Deanna Guten Morgen !
hahaha…hilarious! did ms.cupitonians gift you a snake? apparently she finds them amazing! 🙂
I had read about her love of snakes in passing and it made me giggle like an overly masculine school boy with a soft side that only came out when no one was watching. I hope I get a snake from Ms Cupitonians, it would make my day.
Nice to meet you know-all. Welcome and I hope you come back frequently!
Which snake would you like?
I will let you pick, I’ve rather enjoyed your taste and sense of style so far 🙂
I’m from the land of the cobra but the black mamba is the scariest and most beautiful of the snakes
