So Shaydee been deep sea diving in her feelings behind all the celebrity and other deaths in 2016. I don’t even KNOW the celebrities but y’all know it feels like Prince and Mrs. Brady and Muhummad Ali and George Michael and Zsa Zsa Gabor and Princess Leia and nem was a part of my family. They definitely are from a part of my childhood and young adulthood that was simple, easy, and innocent.
Now it feels like that youthful part of me has gone on to glory forever and what remains is this middle age woman that I am becoming. With a thousand responsibilities, less days left than I have lived, a new dog that I won’t allow upstairs or in my kitchen, a kid that I had when I was too old, and a hubby that’s old and tired like me so that when we make plans to go places, we end up staying home and falling asleep. Yeah, 2016 got me in my feelings…so I’m hoping that even WITH Trump, 2017 is better AND death doesn’t come a knocking for me. Because I be damned if it ain’t knock on all kindsa doors in 2016. I can’t wait to see this year end. In the interim though, I want to bubble wrap AND duct tape Stevie Wonder, Patti Labelle, Aretha Franklin, Gerald Levert Daddy (Eddie), Gladys Knight and Betty White for the next few days. Just to be safe….
