First off, I'd like to thank the anonymous person who left a comment on my blog commenting that the Eric Benet song I spoke of yesterday was on the Glitter soundtrack that Mariah Carey put out a few years back. I took it upon myself(against my better judgement) and researched this, and that was incorrect. Unfortunately, I can't make fun of this person, because they remain anonymous. Reveal yourself unto me please, so I can attempt to win this argument with you.

So one day before this year is out, I have to go in and get a full STD/HIV screening, and I can't say I'm dreading it, but I'm not exactly jumping for joy either. It's kind of like going to a family dinner, and wondering if you're going to be chosen to say grace. You know based on past experiences, you'll probably be passed over, but there's always that small chance that you'll be called upon, and you're never really prepared for it. Actually that's a bad analogy, because saying grace can't kill you or handicap you for life..that is unless you curse God to bloody hell in the middle of grace, and even then an overweight female family member with big breasts would kill you even before God got wind of your sin. I digress...

Anyway, I'm pretty sure that my tests will come out just fine, but I'm not 100% sure. In my head over the past few days, I've done a mental inventory of not only the women I've given the business to this year, but overall, and its always a humbling experience. There are people who I had no business being with, people who I wish I could trade in for a Harley or something, and others who were great for the moment, but that's about it. Of course there are some folks I wish I could get one more chance at, but not really. All of these people make up my "list", and when it is time to take this HIV/STD test, you just think of all these things. A friend of mine just had a test like this, and this person was sweating bullets until the results came back. Considering what is at stake, there is really no good excuse for being unsafe and reckless, but it happens to me and others. I should have written this last Friday, which was AIDS day, but it slipped my mind. I have forgotten what my point was..anyway, when I get my test results back, I am definitely writing about them here, because that will be a beautiful day. I've gotten these tests every year since I was 17, so I shouldn't stress..but I do.

I hope my brother doesn't get mad at me for writing this, but he told me yesterday that women are throwing the goodies at him like crazy since his marriage. I will never truly understand why women will look at a single dude, and ignore him, and then as soon as he gets married, all of a sudden his stock goes through the roof. Of course not all women think like this, but every friend of mine who has gotten married the past few years, speaks of this. I'd really be interested to know what this is about, so much so that I have thought of doing some "investigative" work that involves me purchasing a wedding ring. Of course this wouldn't be for personal gain, but rather this would be strictly in the interest of finding the elusive truth(s) surrounding married men and single women.

The song may not have made the Glitter soundtrack. However, it was sung in the movie. If you're still in an investigative mode, rent the movie. Then you will see that there will be no need for debate.

I would love to see you wearing a wedding band . . .maybe you should just do it for the hell of it to find out how you feel about being committed. I wore my parents' wedding band for three years during a period where I wanted to be left alone. Needless to say . . . I am not sure whether or not it had an effect on the men, but I wasn't bothered as much and I always had an excuse for the loosers, some of whom would always say, "What's that got to do with me." But I guess folks like that will always exist. Good luck with the test I get one every year as well. I already had mine this year and . . .you guessed it, I get one more year of living disease free. I guess God is pleased with me . . .or at least He was wise enough to know that I wouldn't be able to handle it. 'Cause you know they always say he NEVER gives you more than you can handle, and Lord knows I would truly fall out if the tester came back with,"Your results are positive." Anyway, sure you'll be fine, but brace yourself just in case. And no matter what the case, know that AIDS nowadays is like cancer, they usually can do a whole lot to prolong your life. It's just better to find out early whether or not you have it. So all of you who aren't getting tested, shame on you! You are not helping yourselves.
