I have only owned a pair of sunglasses once in my 33 years of walking this Earth. I was in the 9th grade, and I went out and purchased a pair with my allowance. I don't even remember the sun being out that particular day, I just knew sunglasses were in my possession, and they were going to be on my face. Wearing them in class would have gotten me sent to the office, but between classes, during lunch and after school you could not have told I was not the essence of cool. Then my boy Kevin came up to me, and told me I looked like a spider, and I needed to take them off, and I did. 1989 was the year.

So this morning, nearly 20 years later, as I strode into work with sun invading my eyes like the U.S. did Iraq, the thought of sporting another pair crept into my mind. I am 100% sure I can find some that compliment my pseudo-good looks and allow me to avoid that spider look. I vow to you the blog readers and myself, that I won't put the sunglasses on top of my head, I won't unbutton three buttons on my shirt and put them them, I won't wear them indoors, and I won't rip them off of my face and chew on the handles like I'm some sort of pretentious a-hole. I will buy a respectable pair, have my lady take a picture of them, and then post it up on the blog.

By the way, if you look carefully, you'll notice that the blog I wrote last week has been deleted by the blogger gods. Apparently I posted a link to a song that I should not have, and they took the whole entry down. So no more songs for me buddy, I don't want to be in jail.

what in the funk??? i read all that and i was going to comment your whole sunglasses thing until i saw that an ENTIRE post was taken down because of a song?

so did you get an email apprising you of their actions? fasci--

boo.

but yeah as far as not wearing sunglasses on your head? i agree that can be kind of wack. though i must admit, thats where you almost always find mine. I rarely have them on my face :(

A spider?! It's a new day now, Rashad. Besides, Spiderman is sooo cool and sexy.hahaha!

I'm sure "My Lady" will agree you're way cooler than Tobey Mcquire!!
Dawn those shades, dude. Can't wait to see'em!

Was there some kind of copyright infringement violated with the take down? Probably, huh? It would be helpful maybe to find out whay they took it down. Anyhow, glad the popo's not after you!

Was the reason for removing the Q-tip song due to copyright infringement?

Sunglasses on the head ... an orange polo shirt with the collars up ... some plaid shorts and then - your people will be clowning you from now on.
