I got "the" call last night. You know the call I'm talking about. It's the one when someone from your past, who you have nothing to say to, decides that the spirit has hit them, and they absolutely must call. But when they leave the message/email, their true intentions are never really stated. The intentions are always hidden under the guise of wanting to say hi. Sometimes they leave a message saying, "I didn't really want anything, and you don't have to call me back, I was just calling to say hi". Then two hours, maybe a day later, you get a call saying, why didnt you call me back yet. Or sometimes, said person will say, I'm just calling to say hi, give me a call back...which to me means that you were not JUST calling to say hi, but you expect me to return the favor as well. In my experience, unless that person has hit the lottery and wants to give you money or they have AIDS or something(sorry to be so morbid, but i'm making a point here man, hyperbole is mandatory) there is really no reason to humor this person by answering the phone..and I did not and I will not. Now, if I am completely honest, I can admit that I've made this type of call in my past..and the person(s) would always call me back. But they didn't have the guidance of a blogger breaking down how bad it can be to respond to this type of trickery.

Despite how it looks, I can totally understand why Tony Taylor would "snitch" on Michael Vick the way he did yesterday. The chances are great that all of them are going to jail, but Taylor doesn't have the money nor does he have the resources to properly stave off these charges the way Vick does. But what Taylor DOES have is information about Vick, and the dogfighting underworld, which is very valuable to the feds. Yes he can proclaim his love for Vick, and say he is going to do jail time for like Greg Anderson did for Barry Bonds, but that's dumb. The right thing to do is to come clean, snitch on Vick, and go on with your life. Besides, according to what I've read, Vick and Taylor have long since fallen out anyway. I wouldn't snitch on my brother, and my boys, then again, they wouldn't lead me that far left of the law either..that's why our friendships have such longevity.

Speaking of my boys, this song is the perfect one to listen to in the car with your boys(or girls) while you all are on your way to the club, bar, or bible study of course.
