We all have a weakness and I must confess mines. I’ve been confessing a lot lately. I feel as if my middle name needs to be Charmaine “confession” Hudson.
So, my first weakness is food. I love food. I love the different types of foods form different cultures. I’m not a picky eater, I’m down to try new things. I remember my friend had encouraged me to eat Escargot. Now, it took me a good 15 minutes for me to try it. It was okay, would I eat it again? Absolutely not. I love going out to different restaurants to eat. When I do cook, I try to play around with the food and add different spices and marinates to put a twist on it. I am a Food Network fanatic. I love the shows Chopped, Pioneer Woman, and Barefoot Contessa.
My second weakness is shopping. Goodness, how do I love it! When I see a sale at my favorite stores or anywhere I’m there. I have a bad obsession with Steve Madden and Jessica Simpson shoes. Last week, I went to DSW to look for sandals. I was walking towards the sales rack until I saw them. A beautiful pair of golden Steve Madden sandals. They were calling me. I walked over there, found my size and tried them on, IT WAS OVER! I had to get them! But, I saw the price and I was like “Dang, I really don’t want to jeopardize my account. I went to the sales rack couldn’t find anything. So, I picked up my Maddens went to the front. I had a coupon for ten dollars so I was good. BUT, come to find out I had another coupon that needed to be used. I walked out DSW shouting!
My third and final weakness, Men. I don’t know what it is about them. Let a good looking guy walk by, and I STARE! I am a sucker for hazel eyes. I get weak! A couple of months ago I was at work and this tall, chocolate man walked into the bridal store looking for my co- worker. I almost opened my mouth and lied saying I was my co- worker. I said. “Oh she’s not here today”! Batting my lashes and smiling. After that was said I slowly walked away. I love men that are well groomed and dress down to the T! I mean polo shirt, denim jeans and a nice pair of shoes. If he has dreads they have to be nice and edged up. Nappy dreads are a big NO NO! It doesn’t matter if the guy is African American, Caucasian, Spanish , Asian , Caribbean I love them all. Especially, if he’s a gentleman and have a good sense of humor.
You know when I think about it, these aren’t bad weakness. These are good. Weaknesses tend to be put in a bad light. Maybe I shouldn’t call them weakness, those three things are what I love. I love food, shopping and men. They can be good and dangerous. You can become overweight, broke and some one’s baby daddy! Two out of three put me in a bad situation. If I can just learn to push away from the table, and stay away from the mall!
