The talks that me and my editor have are epic– so epic that we should record them and post them (idea). At any rate no matter what the topic of debate is, somehow the conversation always seems to trickle back to one of two places. One being the state of Hip-Hop or lack thereof, and the other being the state of Black America or the lack thereof.
With some miscellaneous dating movie playing in the background, we aggressively stated our positions (pause). Our debate came to an abrupt halt when in the movie, the guys kisses the girl that he had been chasing the WHOLE movie, and then she immediately begins to act brand new and runs away, leaving the young man dumbfounded. I stated to my editor how much of a “shriveler” that was.
We laughed about it, and he told me that I should make a post out of it. I too laughed and quickly got to work. So Whaaaaaala.
For those who don’t know what a “shriveler” is; you shouldn’t because I made it up. Allow me to define.
Shri-ve-ler: A physical condition that occurs to a man when his immediate excitement, turns into even more immediate despair.
Still vague? allow me to help you out with a list of things that gives me the shrivels.
