My Greatest Enemy is My Inner Me

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

Monday, May 15, 2006


Yep, that's me.

To be truthful, I've had it since last Wednesday (The boy can hold water, can't he?). But I wanted to be sure all of the paperwork went thru before I started gettin' all on my blog gloatin'. When I went to the dealership, I was looking at a particular truck, a 2003 blue TB. The salesman looked for it everywhere, but could not find it. After looking for it a few more minutes, the salesman drives up in the TB pictured above. "Whoa" , I thought. This was the LTZ model, the top of the line TB. With the fog lights, leather, running boards, and more (And I never realized how "naked" an SUV looks without running boards, which are those platforms that people use to step into the truck for those that don't know.)

I don't think I can get financed for that. But damn it looks nice.

I drove it around, it didn't feel like I was driving. It felt like I was glidin'. I was looking at the speedometer like "Damn, am I really going 70?" In Dora (my now former Explorer), it took me about 30 seconds to get it up to 60, along with some shaking. But the TB? Just Smooth......(like my cuz, LOL)

Salesman: So do you like it?

RM: Yeah, its aiight (but In my mind I was like "Hell Yeah").

Salesman: Well let's see what we can do.....

So you all know how that goes, back and forth, trying to set a price and payments blah blah blah, but after a few minutes it was done! Payments are a little higher than what I would have liked, but I really got what I wanted, and I plan on paying a lot more than the regular note so I can pay it off sooner. I wanted a black one, and I got a black one. And its got all of the options that I thought I wasn't going to get. And I still don't have my license. But as I'm writing this, I just called the Courthouse and my records have been updated so as soon as I'm done blogging, I'm off to get my license.

I feel vindicated with all of the working I've been doing in the last 8 months. I was ready to quit a few months back because I felt like I didn't have a life, every weekend people would ask what did I do and all I would say was "Well I worked and rested". But getting this truck makes me feel great because I worked my ass off and did it all on my own and no one can take that away from me. But now, I must continue working. I can't stop now. I'm not an award winning actor yet, so it's still 9 to 5 and 10 to 6 to survive.

So Now that I got the whip, the only thing missing is a misses....

Time to build the roster up. Just in time for the summer.

Let the games begin!!!!!

* Oh and I cannot go any further without congratulating my cousin Tiger. She graduated from Illinois State University over weekend, and I'm very proud of her. I couldn't make it to the graduation because I had to work (as usual), but she's having a lil party next weekend and I plan on stopping by. See ya Saturday Tiger *

Thanks for Reading,

Robert Mack

Thanks. I appreciate it. Really. Now I gotta find something else to talk about. LOL.

Thank you. That makes me feel good. Even my father told me he was proud. He just probably happy I aint got some chickenhead skank pregnant yet.

Nsane talking that Hollywood talk. LOL. She probably wouldn't come thru....

Damn so I guess a N*gga gotta get a whip first for you to come on and respond, hell I talk about you in damn near every post. LOL!!!!!! Its cool, yeah I was thinking about that chevy tandem. We gone whip'em when you come up in a few weeks.

Yes, tell me about it. I hope I'll keep it clean. I say that every time I get a new car, and that lasts all of a couple weeks. But I will say that I'll get it washed quite often. Hand washed too, not that 5 dollar crap at the gas station. I'm talking about that "hype in the alley trying to get a rock" wash. LOL. You know they have your shit spit-shined!!
