Tag!

So Ive been tagged by The Flyyest and The F$%K it list dammit! LOL.. well here it is..

Here are the rules:
1. Link the person who tagged you…

2. Mention the rules in your blog…

3. Tell about 6 unspectacular quirks of yours

4. Tag 6 following bloggers by linking them

5. Leave a comment on each of the tagged blogger’s blogs letting them know they’ve been tagged


Heres me. Ina nutshell.

1. When we were younger, my sisters and I used to have a "national cuss day" where we would walk around the house saying any cuss word known to man. Of course it was usually in the summertime, cause our parents would be at work. So we would be cleaning the house, watching tv and stuff and then outta nowhere, "shit!" hahahaha..It was a great time for us, cause we felt free.. and would laugh and laugh and laugh..good times with my sisters when I was younger.

2. I'm a mentor. I like to take time outta my life and help or lead by example to some youngsters in my life. I enjoy doing it, since such a great example was set for me by my father.. its easy to talk to young people, and with kids they see the good in you, and the genuine step in your approach. So I have an easy time with them. I may not be the millionaire with all the quirks, but I still like to see the best outta people.

3. I kinda have ESP. I have been known to say a lotta things that people are thinking and then they say " I was just gon say that!!!".. Its the worst with my best friend Q, we been around each other for so long that I just know what the brotha is thinking. He hit me up on the way home from work yesterday and was like "whatup mayne, what you up to?".. i said "driving down bradshaw.." and at the same time we said "yea, drivin down JBL.." hahaha.. and laughed and laughed.. its crazy.. I really think I can steal peoples brain waves..So watch out!

4. I sometimes take showers in the dark. Helps my thought process and helps me clear my head in times of confusion. I probably have been taking quite a few in the dark lately with all this confusion in some aspects of my life.. Just letting the water run down and clearing my head. In this world of noise and cell phones, me and the shower quiet is a surefire relief.

5. I give great massages. I was actually taught by my old friends mom the techniques, she gave me a book and stuff and taught me some strategies. Its refreshing to get a good massage, so I wanted to know how to give that feeling. Now I know.

6. I have a shy side. Doesn't come out a lot, but it is there. I like to lie to myself and say I'm reserved, but in reality, its the shyness that I have always had and still kinda do to this day. Like I said its rare, but if you see me slip to the back of the room, its the shy in me lol..

So theres some things about me...hmm.. I think most everyones been tagged lol.

Gotta Let it Out said...

1.LOL @ cuss day... ya'll were bad

2.I love mentoring too... I must say that more black males are needed in this field and I'm glad you're doing your part.

3.That's funny... I've always wanted ESP.

4.ME TOO!!! OMG! Boyfriend thinks something is wrong with me for doing this, but I swear it's like a natural stress reliever. Lately I've been lighting one really scented candle, and um... its a little erotic...LOL!

5.Prove it dude.

6.I can see this about you...it's sexy for sure.

Lady Cameleon said...

OMG!! Im really not the only person that takes showers in the dark *whew*.....I do this often though, it really is a stress reliever......well "anything in the dark" is ;).....

Miss Mika said...

lol @ random obscenities being yelled out of nowhere. That would be a riot.

I too am on the shower in the dark bandwagon. I just started doing that recently too. Not sure what my reasons were for trying it... might have been me trying to conserve energy or something, but one day I got in the shower with the lights off and I've been doing it ever since. I will light candles though if I am taking a bath. I figured since I put all that effort into making my bath, why not go the extra mile.

Has Brittany_83 been tagged yet?

She Needs said...

@ cuss day. As little kids my mom would let me and my brother every once in a while say a cuss word. we thought we were doing it big

Ms. Behaving said...

A cuss day huh?!?! [LOL]

[Ah yes...some of the more interesting things we did as children.]

Your being a mentor is a good look. Keep it up and thanks for stoppin' by :-)!!!

The Flyyest said...

am i the only one that thinks showering in the dark is not only weird but scary!!!!!! i never tried it so i cant knock it!!

im not a big fan of dark rooms.....

Gotta Let it Out said...

LOL @ flyyest being afraid of the dark...LMAO

swag_ambassador said...

@ f it- not a problem.. and yea SHY!

@flyy- that was my word back inthe day LOL

@ gotta- i think all kids wanted to cuss when they were younger and get away with it.. lol.. yea mentoring provides me witha nice feeling..hmm candles? maybe ill try that.. and I CAN MASSAGE! gimme then shouldas LOL

@cameleon- yes indeed it is.. :)

@mika- yea its a great feeling to be alone in the shower with no lights.. almost like being ina box..but a comfy box.. iono if brit has ornot..

@sheneeds- funny aint it? shoot i slipped up and said a few things when i was younga, only to get whooped..

@ms.behaving- not a problem.. and yea! shit! HA

The Flyyest said...

hey....@ gotta~
I AINT AFRAID OF THE DARK....im jus not a big fan!!! LOL

Mizrepresent said...

Any man that can give a good massage is a winner in my book...folks don't know, a massage relaxes and intensifies...from as little as a hand, to a shoulder... can make a grown woman melt.

Brittany said...

I have been a mentor for over 3 years now. Glad to see black men doing it as well.

I also like to take showers in the dark. Especially if I have to get up early. I get at least 10 extra mins of sleep in. lol

Desy said...

you shy?!?!?... that would be sooo unexpected... but i wonder why those moments occur...hmmmm

Stew said...

its kinda weird, but everything but the "cuss day" thing with you sister, i can say about myself. the shower thing really caught my eye, b/c i thought i was the only one who did that. you gotta make it a ritual, you will find that you will come up with some of your best ideas when you do not have anything to look at.

my "ESP" is more intuition than anything. sometimes it is scary how i can predict things before they happen.

~sTeW~

Satrina "Tree said...

man ii tke showers in the dark too!! thought ii was the only one!!

JayBee said...

1. i remember the first time i cursed. i said it really low and looked around as if my parents had a radar and could hear me. mind you they were nowhere around.

2.good stuff.

3. i swear i have esp too. not like i'm finishing people's sentences but sometimes i dream stuff that happens.

4.um...okay. if it works for you. we all need some 'me' time.

5. sure there are plenty of ladies who might be interested in this tidbit. great way to plug yourself.

6. i always described shy people as reserved. they aren't one in the same?

Monie said...

Nice post. I tagged you too (late) but you don't have to do this again...unless you want to. = )

swag_ambassador said...

@miz- u aint lied.. shoot I wish I could get massages on occasion.

@Brit- its a good look for me.. I enjoy doing it, provides a sense of service.

@Desy- umm it probably occurs, iono..whenever.. I cant really answer that

@stew- welcome.. and thats a good point.

@tree- u see all these people saying they do to.. u aint tha only one lol

@Jaybee- good point on the massage LOL.. and umm, I dont think reserved is the same as shy. I would say reserved (to me at least) just means that I am less inclined to be all in the scene. and shy is like a fear of the scene.

@monie- u tardy! LOL

Charles said...

I take dark showers too. Mine occured by accident though. When I was in high school we were hit by a hurricane and the power went out and I took a shower in the dark with candles...and I was like 'shit...this is the shit right here'. So I do it every so often now just because...and it feels like I can concentrate on my thoughts alot better.

Haute in LA said...

I saw a comment you left somewhere (?) and HAD to come over here just on the strength of you being the Ambassador of Swag. I adore swagger! LOL! I don’t need no taggin, but feel free to drop by my spot sometime.

Re #3. I think you probably already stole my brain waves…THAT’s why I didn’t get into grad school. :-(

#4 U sure you’re not taking those showers in the dark so you can concentrate on certain areas and not feel guilty??? Hmmmm. LOL! What’s done in the dark comes to light, ya know.

#5 (Filing that away in my mental rolodex).

the old me said...

Still_Pocahontaz said...

I have contemplated taking a shower in the dark a few times...its kind of creepy though..Im scary ass hell.

Sexxy Luv said...

One thing I have found out is that a lot of people consider them self to be shy....Interesting!

Marleaux said...

Lol at you and your sis having a cursing day. I didn’t get a long with my sister’s, so I couldn’t have a made up holiday with any1.

Umm, hmm… So you and mom’s was getting all touchy feely with each other, calling it a “massage”. I see you. BTW, I got the meanest knots in my shoulders; how much you charge.

I’m going to have to try that black shower thing. I’m having issues.

LadyShay said...

I take showers in the dark too, or I have just the one dim light on.

dejanae said...

old friend's mom?
hmmmmm
something smells fishy

Keisha "Kitten" Isaacs said...

I have a shy side as well.... People don't believe me because I am able to perform in front of a large crowd, but that's what I call the game face after serious prayer...I definitely tend to get in the cut with larger groups and peek the scene as I like to call it...but I tend to be more engaged with one-on-one or smaller groups...

Do you all still celebrate National Cuss Day??? lol

Opinionated Diva said...

Great massages huh????? Can you use your ESP to read my mind right now? lol

Luv to hear about Black men who volunteer to be mentors. Kudos to you!

You're too cute to be shy!

MsPuddin said...

um do you cry in the shower too? men cry in the dark, ya know...

Eb the Celeb said...

Ladies... PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT

Swag showers in the dark because he himself is even ashamed of how frail his frame is and cant even fathom looking at himself...

LOL...

JayBee said...

okay...i can feel that. wasn't clear on the difference, but i get it now.

12kyle said...

Muze said...

too bad i'm waaay to clumsy to ever attempt that one. lol.

i'm a mentor too! it's cool to know so many positive black men.

national cuss day... hilarous.

...always a good thing to know how to give great massages.

hope all is fab!

Muze said...

oh, and adding you to the blogroll...hope you don't mind.


adios.

CapCity said...

First time to your spot. I like showers in the dark too! Hadn't thought about why - but i find comfort in them...

LOVE talking to kids & wonder why most parents don't. Hope to be blessed with children of my own someday - until then I'll help others out when I can, too.

karrie b. said...

everyday is national cuss day for me!

and it's nice to see guys "giving back" to the community. good job.

Demon Hunter said...

Interesting stuff. Mentoring is great. We need more Black males to do it.

ESP---I've had weird experiences with this...lol.

dessex said...

its great that you are a mentor...we need more of those in our community because there are so many people who need direction and someone positive to look up...I commend you on that

allienicole said...

lol

mp1 v.8.0 said...

I take the showers in the dark too from time to time. Just a lil quirk of mine. So, it's not that strange, huh?

Malibu said...

LMAO @ national cuss day!! That was hilarious! I honestly would be too scared to take a shower in the dark! I'm a little afraid of the dark. My mom says that when you're afraid of something like the dark, it's usually because you're a bad a$$!! LOL =) Guess I'm a bad a$$...

Enjoyed the post!
