Here's a list of one-handed observations:

1)When I log in, I have to hit control, alt and delete with one hand. Its like playing Twister with your fingers man.

2)People at work are looking at me (and justifiably so) like I'm Ike Turner o I'm just dude who fights all the time.

3)When I tell folks how I hurt my hand, everyone has a joke about how when you hit a wall, the wall always wins. Then they throw a sports analogy my way, then they break into a life's lesson speech.

4) I can't instant message with anyone too well, because I can't keep up with the fast pace. I'll think of something witty and smart to say, but it takes me 30 minutes to type it. By that time, the person you're chatting with has come up with 4 more jokes I have to respond to. IVE BEEN SILENCED MAN!!

5) I have more of an appreciation for women who have to shower delicately in order to not get their hair wet. Trying not to get this hand wet is quite a task, and thank God there are no cameras in the shower with me. Some of the poses I hit in there this morning were downright laughable.

6) On a more serious note, my boy Cliff and my dad had separate heart to heart talks with me last night, and they took it to me pretty good. They both forced me to look in the proverbial mirror and do a serious life audit. They weren't easy conversations to listen to, but I appreciated the love from both of them. I also appreciate my friends who have allowed me to vent about various things over the past few days.

This blog is going to be very interesting, when converted to book format...highs, lows, and everything in between. And I can release a CD with my favorite songs to accompany it. Good times!!!

I've just read yesterday's and today's blog. "Oh damn" has pretty much been my thought (along with the Dreamgirls soundtrack, but that's another topic, in and of itself. LOL) You will learn alot over the next couple of weeks, and I can't wait to read them! Feel better (both physically and emotionally)

I think I laughed a little too hard imagining you "not getting your hair(hand) wet".

Wow Rashad. I knew something was up when there were missing entries. The most destruction I've done in anger is burn some pictures. Maybe you guys should get some pre-engagement counseling. Or do some workbooks on how to communicate.

Now this was a good blog. I loved your one handed observations. And I especially like the fact that you now understand the whole NOT GETTING YOUR HAIR WET routine. I had to try really hard NOT to laugh when I pictured those shower moves! LOL! You gotta love it!
