WHEN IT COMES TO LIVING OUT LOUD & LIFE’S LITTLE ADVENTURES…NEVER NEGOTIATE!
I HAVE ALWAYS LOVED THE WATERS OF THE LAKE & ITS ADVENTURES
LIFE’S FULFILLING & HAPPY ADVENTURES ARE ALWAYS OVER THE HORIZON
“Old School Diva’s Stop Competing, Worrying & Complaining So Much, About These Young Queens & Wannabe Savages Out Here! Be The Grand Duchesses & Barbarians at the Gate…I Know You Can Be….
If it’s a baller they want…then let them ball until they fall! As Old School Divas we bring nothing to the table. Because we know we do not have too. We are savvy and broad shouldered broads—we never settle, nor do we negotiate! We know our self worth and expectations, and they do not look grocery list. (Or who’s whom on the NFL and NBA newest listings.)
I never wasted my time vying to get or sit at a gentleman’s table. How common and simple is that? Ladies, who get it know. We are the Lenox Stemware, reserved for the best of times, and special occasions. Because our next adventure awaiting us is just over the proverbial horizon. We will not waste our time longing for it. We know it when we see it! And most of the time…its searching for us, not vice-versa. Which is why I always choose to live my life…out loud! Winking.;-)
One blazing afternoon, during the summer of 2014 my phone, nearly rung itself off the hook! Of course, it was the Chairman. I said not a single word. I simply let myself breathe loud enough for him to hear me. Insuring the gentleman that I chose to give him quarter, for whatever he wanted to talk about.
I could sense his nervousness. Hence, the reason for granting him quarter so expeditiously. He softly cleared his throat, first. I could only imagine the rueful smile on the other end, as well. Shortly after bating me to listen…he began his spill. It was funny as hell—yet very sweet and endearing! There are just some things we old school divas just know. Mr. Chairman of the Board” said to me…very softly…
“My beautiful Mistress … your chariot awaits you . Come away with me, again, to the place of those beautiful majestic skies and amber sunsets. We shall frolic in the warmth of the waters, until the sun sets herself into the bosom of the night.” (Not losing stride within his voice once.)
“Afterwards Babygirl, we shall dine, drink , and be merry, until we fall asleep under an audience of a gazillion stars. The light of the mystic moon will be our only lamp of light, til the morning sunrise. Are you in or are you out, Baby?”
“Tell Katherine she can slumber in the privacy of the boat’s guest suite…there are two to choose from. I know how you two are. Its okay.” The gentleman chuckled, slightly. It was relief.
“Click”…went my phone, accompanied by a slight chuckle. I sent a text straight away…it simple said…”NO WORRIES… IN ROUTE’! (Beach bag was already packed). Wink.😉
As I arrived to the dock, boat, and the Chairman—his arms were wide open, accompanied by a huge smile. “Sorry we am late, dearie.” I recanted via my own humongous smile.
The Chairman’s response to me was simple and to the point…”no worries, beautiful”. Next, the excited gentleman planted one huge wet and juicy kiss upon my lips. My eyes sparkled like the afternoon sun. I could not believe I was there, again (at the lake).
“Come on inside beautiful, but watch your step. I cleaned and shined her all up…just for you today.” A short breathe escaped his lips, before the excited and proud boat captain kissed my side jawline and earlobe, softly. “You are in for a real treat today, baby.” Katherine looked on with utter and complete bewilderment, and a bit of a green eye. Winking.
With that said, my inner goddess stretched out my right hand, with a slight bend and curve. Of course, he grabbed it to pull me in closer. Looking me eye to eye the Chairman raised the back of my hand to his lips; rubbed it against his side cheek and neck, then kissed it softly.
I could feel the tiny bee stings in my stomach. After all of that pomp and circumstance; I could only bend in a slight curtsey, and squeeze his thumb in assurance and appreciation. Those damn bee stings was my ego and pride screaming at the top of their lungs. “Girl…YYYEEESSSS!’ (Total bashful blush moment for me.)
Those famous words were written on her rear-end of that mini-yacht, finally made so much sense to me. “No Worries.” Lord she was a beauty: with a full luxurious galley; full shower; huge round bed for two! But I fell in love with her skyline the most…I believe. Lake Altoona became our refuge from the hustle and bustle of Buckhead Atlanta, and her precocious patrons from all over, west hell. We loved it…and each other, for that matter!
I really didn’t recognize it, before that very moment. Needless, to say we dined with libations of wine and Napoleon Brandy; Lobster and roasted duck; grilled asparagus and brussel sprouts in white wine sauce, and mudslide desserts. Served in crystal stemware, drizzled in bourbon and chocolate sauce. The Chairman left no stone unturned, on the water that evening. All during a magnificent sunset.
I believe we swam and star gazed into the wee hours of night. It was beyond fun and spectacular! Unforgettable is a better term… I would say.
I never realize—until it was all over just how meaningful, and utterly romantic those water adventures had become. I believe, it was at that very moment I made a pact with myself. I would never settle for mediocre adventures—in my life…ever again!
LADIES KNOW YOUR WORTH & NEVER NEGOTIATE WHEN IT COMES TO ISSUES OF THE HEART…. EVER!
