This blog will tell the story of an up-and-coming young black man in his 20's

That's a WRAP

Ok so here's a recap of the last few days:

* I renewed my lease at my apartment. That means I'll be a South side Chicagoan thru May of 2007. It doesn't seem like a year. Maybe its because I'm not home that much so I don't have too much time to stare at the walls. I am fairly please with my apartment building. Yeah it has its quirks, like the hot water acts up from time to time. But the management is always on site, as well as the maintenance peeps. I live in a high rise in South Shore. Here's a pic of Lake Michigan from my apt that I took from my phone. I'll take a better picture later. In South Shore, parking is at a premium. Better yet, parking is a b***h, as I had to parallel park for up to 3 blocks away some nights in my previous building, but here I have underground parking. When people would ask me what I liked about my new place, the first words were always "Underground Parking"! If this same apartment building was on the North (aka White) side of town, the rent would easily be 300 more a month. So what did I do to celebrate? I played hookie from my second job (the cable spot) today, ordered a 5 piece with extra mild sauce from Harolds', and watched my Bulls lose again to the Heat. But they givin' them boys a hard time. Now it's time for them to come to Chi-town for a couple of games. I bet the Bulls win both. Dwyane Wade never does good in Chicago because its his hometown and he tries to do too much. I love his Converse commercial though. Fall Seven Times and Get Up Eight. He should be a Bull, but that damn Pat Riley stole him from us. Oh well. Get off the soapbox, Rob.

* As quickly as I was the star of show, I was benched. Not because I was terrible, but the director felt like I wouldn't have enough time (roughly 2 weeks) to learn the lead role, especially considering I have 2 jobs to go to. So now I'm going to play the pastor.........LOL.....ironic huh, the nickel bag totin' preacher!......."I just need a lil for my cataracts".....
I have mixed feeling about the demotion. Yeah, one one hand, I'm relieved because I wasn't sure If I could learn all of the lines in such a short time, but on the other hand, it would have been a great challenge. And I'm going to miss the potential practice kissing scenes with the leading lady, because she is a nice one!! Oh well.....I'll be the best weed tokin and totin pastor that I could be! It did make me realize that I do truly love acting, which is why I'm going to give it my full attention after this year.

* Finally met up with "Miss Green", the young girl from my previous story. I seen a couple of her pics on her "Myspace" page, and she was nice looking. The girl that hooked us up said that she had a nice body. So on the way over there, I kept messing with her, because she had never seen me; we'd just talked over the phone. I kept saying "You don't know what I look like. I could be Dikembe Mutombo rolling thru!". So when I met Miss Green in person, I was pleased. Ah, nothing like 20 year old poon poon (LOL)....... When I saw her, It made me think to why 19 and 20 year olds star in my favorite Jake Steed and Booty Talk selections and draw the ire of women on the other side of their 30's. You see, these freshly legal chicks still possess that high school high metabolism, you know where she can eat extra value meals and flamin' hots all day and not gain a pound whatsoever, except in the right places. Miss Green tried to show me that she had a stomach and damned near broke her skin while trying to create a love handle. I get out there and I'm thinking that we're going to go out, but she'd rather sit and chill. Sh.. that's cool with me. That means I get to watch the basketball playoffs and not come outta pocket? That's the win-win (LOL) ! It's pretty sufficient to say that she's feeling the boy, with constant questions of "Why are you sitting so far from me" and subtle remarks like "Hmm its too bad we're not at your house". Oh really?
But (because there's always a but), I just don't know about Miss Green. For one she lives too far. Anyone with mapquest can look up Chicago IL 60649 to Elgin, IL and see the distance, and tack on about 30 mins to that because of Chi-town traffic. I did the commute thing last summer with a chick, and I still haven't financially recuperated (LOL), not to mention that I never even got a taste of that ass. But I digress.
Another reason I'm not sure about Miss Green is that she is going to be another smash and grab job. And I got a feeling that she catches feelings quick. Then again I'm also sensing vibes that she is just a young chick looking to get broke off properly by an older cat. LOL, well in any case, I'm going to try to think this one thru with the head on top of my shoulders, not the head that makes legs touch the shoulders.

Thanks for reading,

Robert Mack

If it's gonna be a smash and grab then you should do some different things sexually with her....porno stylie. Feathers, fingers, spider monkeys. Whatever gets you going. See how willing she is in pleasing you but in retrospective if she is gonna be clingy then it's not worth the trouble.

Forget I said anything.

@ KZ,
For what Miss Green? Thanks, but I don't know if I'm going to put in any "work" with her. LOL

@Royce's Daughter
Yeah I'm glad too. I was struggling a bit last year and I was late on rent like 2 or 3 months in a row, and I thought they were going to either not renew me or go up on the price really high. But neither occurred. Well 5 percent, but that's the norm. And my rent is still lower than what a new renter would pay...My time will come on the acting thing, thanks for the encouragement.....Miss Green is mature for a 20 year old, but she needs a lot of attention that I'm not sure I can give her right now...I'm glad I'm about to entertain you while you drink your coffee!

@Ms New Booty
LOL....I'm not doing it like that. It's a modest spot, for a modest guy. I'm going to take a better picture with my digital camera today.

@ I love Liquor and TV
Thanks. Again, better pic tomorrow. And when there's a wind you hear the waves rumblin'. Very romantic. Women love it. I do too, then (LOL)...."Excuse me sir, what we call drugs at 74th st baptist church, we call a sinny sin sinnn"

Man who worse, you or Slish? LOL...But actually based on some of the convo she might like that. She already asked me to help her take off her bra. See I'm trying to stay good here.

They say you gotta get them half your age Plus 7. so 26/2 = 13 + 7 = 20. Perfect! I'll never go under 20 though cuz, promise. I think.

I remember my 20s. I was too hot to trot...*lol*

I say hit it and quit it, she gotta learn some time in her life that just because the man is older, he will be better...*lol* but Elgin,, that is FAR...but if you a MACK, you can get what you want, and keep her feelings and emotions in control...but I forgot you're a novice Mack...*lol* Just kidding...


But I hear people say all the time that you can mold a younger woman/man... and you say you're looking to get married, right? And she don't smoke Newports right? Is she prissy enough to take home to mother? But not so prissy that Tiger will like her?

I was gonna move on South Shore or on the NorthSide (eewww), but when I was apartment searching, PARKING, was a major factor...

I loved my visit to Harold's - yummy. The traffic in Chi-town is crazy. Love the city though. Leave the youngin ago.

You're still in your 20's. What are you talking about? LOL.....Yeah I bet you was learnin' a lot during them days huh? She's agreed to take the METRA and I could pick her downtown, that's another win-win, but like I said I'm not trying to do that. I dont think *scratching my head* As for being possible the ONE, I highly doubt it. But I haven't known her long enough yet, but in the preliminary, I would say NO. and Tiger says she's too young anyways, LOL....parking is so bad in South Shore. But if you ever came by you would never have a problem finding a parking spot *wink*....

Yeah when I first moved back to the city in 2001 I was Harolds like 2 or 3 times a week. They knew my name and e'ything. LOL...leave the young girl alone? My mind's telling me No........But HER BODY is telling me yeah.......

Like other bloggers have said...younger chicks are more trouble then their worth...keep it moving...especially, if you already feel she's going to get clingy.
