This Ones For You...Or Rather, About You


I met up with a friend of mine a couple of days ago because her best friend was in town and she wanted me to finally meet her. I've known my friend for almost 8 years so I've heard plenty of stories about this best friend. I meet her and she is LITERALLY the life of the party. I told my friend her best friend was her....on crack. I don't think I've ever seen anyone have that much energy and use that many facial expressions in my life...and it seem so natural. She was one of those people who seemed like they didn't need alcohol or drugs to have a good time because she gets high off life. It was really a pleasure to meet her.

I mentioned her because somehow one of the conversations got on Facebook. She brought up something interesting...that people seem to grow balls on these social networking sites (Facebook, specifically) and confess that they were interested in you way back when but didn't have the testicles to approach you back then so...what's up now? I laughed because there are different variations of that case by case. I've had a few people from high school send me emails talking about they always thought some kind of way of me and it was just awkward because...I never felt any kind of way about you hahahhahahahahahaha

So no sooner than I'm thinking I have escaped this epidemic, I get a reply from an email I sent this guy that I used to talk to quite frequently a couple of years ago. I thought he was going to ignore the hell out of me because after our "altercation", that is what he did...act like I never existed. Instead he replies and says that in the Note I read on his Profile he was actually writing about me "...in a way". I didn't know whether to be flattered or scared. I used to always joke him that his writing was soft porn (even though it's REALLY good)...and now, I'm not quite sure how to feel since he has now told me my characteristics and personality was used for one of his characters. However, there is that small piece of me that wants to read the entire story...maybe that's my ego speaking to me but whatever.

And then there is this one small tidbit of info....I've never been physically involved with him so my confusion on whether to be flattered or scared comes in here because now I feel like I walked into the room and someone was jacking off to my picture. Ok, that's a bit farfetched but...is it?

I know this, if he's developed this character into someone who ends up being bootsy, I'm going to choose to be offended. But if she ends up being superb, I'll allow it. Kidding...but not really. LOL

So...how would you feel if you found out someone used you as a character in one of their books they were writing? And it was on the soft porn tip? But it was actually GOOD writing? I'm curious as to how others think on this situation...

Some good shit based on me? I'd be flattered.

a black girl who did date said...

LOL!!!! I would be so flattered and embarrassed at the same time.

I would be flattered and my ego would get a slight boost lol.

I wouldn't mind one bit. I'd be blushing as much as my skin tone would allow.

I guess I'll choose to be flatteringly embarrassed LOL

Ms. Independent said...

I wouldn't care at all as long as it was good, he could write about me all day lol.

Craigjc said...

Is this, like, an aspiring author-friend, or is he just writing indiscriminate rantings about folks?

Kofi Bofah said...

Ha Ha.

You are funny, Ms. Wit.

I don't know how I would feel personally. I would just hope that the story is good, and if it is a good story - I doubt I would mind...

good = flattered...my ego would be beyond stroked.

Be fair & civil in your commenting. If you can't manage that...well be unfair & rude and I'll respond. Yes, those are your only two options :)
