So Im at my homegirl's crib and her 8 yr old niece is there. U know The Teej loves the kids, and all the kids love The Teej, right? So me and lil miss thang are talking and she compliments my mustache of all things. I crack up laughing and blush at the same time b/c I think it's adorable that this 8 yr old is telling me she likes my mustache. I say "Oh really? Well thank you!" No lie she reaches over and hugs me and says "I like you. You're gentle!" I asked her why would she say that......b/c she just shocked me with this 'gentle' line. And she goes "Well most guys would just say (sticks out her chest and in her best macho man-esque voice says) Oh thanks!".
I was floored. It made me think really. Im glad to be me. With my gentle self *wink*. But I can flip it when need be. But I prefer gentle you know. And it's appreciated. If not by most, by a small few. A small few including my friends, a noted author (read next blog), and an 8 yr old who really count.
