Angry Black Queen

Welcome to the Secret Thoughts of Reason…   I was at subway the other day and I saw a black man waiting in line to place his order, and my first thought was: where are these subway workers? They need to hurry up and come serve my black man. No, I did not know this man, I had never seen him before, but he was still a black man…my black man. No later than a few seconds later something happened inside of me that I cannot explain. My thought changed from this is my black man and they need to hurry Read more »

Welcome to the Love World of Reason… I’m lying in bed thinking about what Michelle told me. Louise is married. I shouldn’t be surprised. A woman as perfect as Louise wouldn’t be single for long. I guess Mrs. McDowe was wrong, fate hasn’t brought us together. But there is some good news: Louise is only here to visit, so after she leaves I can go back to normal…only thinking about her every other day as opposed to everyday. Wonderful. I’m definitely not getting any sleep tonight. I get up and go through the books that Michelle left. The books Louise Read more »

Welcome to the Love World of Reason… Seeing Louise sends me into a panic so I rush to the backroom. I text Michelle so she can take Louise’s table. “Jerry what the hell was that?” Jonny asks. “What do you mean?” I say, trying to sound confused. “You ran in here like someone was chasing you.” Jonny says angrily, “Did you even greet that customer that just walked in?” “Uh, yeah, yeah I did.” I lie, “Look Jonny, to be honest, I’m really not feeling well. I think it’s probably better if I just hang out back here.” “Hang out?” Read more »

Welcome to the Mystery World of Reason… “One more time, tell us exactly what happened when this woman, came here.” I say to Jason, the gas station clerk showing him the picture of our killer. “Well she came in and was looking around, but she didn’t buy anything.

Welcome to the Love World of Reason… “Do you mind sleeping here tonight Jerry, I don’t want to be alone.” Michelle says. I smile at Michelle. She can tell I don’t want to be alone so she’s pretending to need company, “Sure thing.” I say. “Thanks.” Michelle says. “I’ll bring you some pillows and blankets.” I pull out the sofa bed in the meantime. “Hey Michelle.” I say out loud so she can hear me, “Do you think meanager will make a big deal if I call out tomorrow?” “I’ll cover for you.” Michelle says bringing out the blankets. “You Read more »

Welcome to the Mystery World of Reason… “Can you explain why we found a strand of your hair on a dead baby?” Steve says to Dorothy Minder. “I don’t know.” Dorothy says, “I’ve answered this same question a dozen times.” “And you’ll answer a dozen more times until we’re satisfied.” Steve says. I haven’t seen Steve this mad since, well, never. I better step in, “Hey Dorothy, I know how this looks. It’s bad. You’re an agent and we’re sorry if we treated you like anything but, but you have to understand the predicament we’re in. Three baby girls found Read more »

Welcome to the Love World of Reason… “I don’t understand.” Louise says, “Why are you doing this?” “I already told you, this just isn’t going to work.” I say. “WHY?” Louise cries. “I know you still love me.” “Unfortunately love isn’t the solution to every problem.” I say. “Sometimes it’s…the problem.” “What does that even mean?” Louise says. “Yesterday everything was fine, now you’re breaking up with me.” “Yesterday everything was not fine, Louise.” I say. “I spent the entire day with my mother in the hospital.” “I mean fine between us.” Louise screams. “I know this is a hard Read more »
