It’s the day after Valentine’s Day … So here’s a little love story (sort of … but not really … but could be!?!).
This year has kept me busy! I’ve worked gigs with America’s Got Talent, BET Honors, NHL Classic, the Portlandia Premier, and a few hip hop shows. I’ve been traveling for the past couple of weeks, so I have not spent much time with Shelli. Despite all of this, I don’t really get down with Valentine’s Day or many holidays. I’m anti commercialization of love. This is also part of the reason I’m often pushing against the formalized business institution of marriage.
But recently I’ve been reminded (not by Shelli) that I’m in a relationship now and it’s not about me. And I’ve been given all kinds of advice about gifts I could get Shelli. Some funny, some serious, some sexy … most were good. But these suggestions were from her friends. People that, although they are close to her … they aren’t me! So, I figured that I’d try to find her something really special. Like really special.
I thought that maybe I could find a really special comic book! Or maybe research and find a super secret hair care product with magical powers. I couldn’t find either … but I got her this when I came back from LA …
because we call each other sunshine … but, realized that this is kinda corny. So, I thought that this would be cute … it’s a picture of me presenting her my heart …
But this image was even more corny …
Then I thought about it … I really don’t get down with this commercialized thing. But, I do support the ideal of love. And since it’s the day after Valentine’s Day, I figured I’d just give her the heirloom engagement ring that I’ve been hiding for so long! So yeah … we’re engaged now!
We thank you all for your support, well wishes, prayers and positive energy!
But that’s not the end of the story … it’s the start of something new and magical … and a story to be continued … forever!
