Hot, Charlotte, Hell, Texas

Y'all. I am not yet able to deal with the heat of this city. I know this is my hometown and all but YIKES! I break into a sweat bringing things out of my car for 10 minutes. My momma talkin bout, "I don't believe you hot." Hater. Just because you haven't seen it doesn't mean it's not there. I feel like a yankee. I was watching the weather on the news trying to plan when I'm going to workout outdoors like "OMG IT'S SO HOT!! 91 AT 8 P.M. BUT WHY????" Pitiful... and I'm moving to Florida, too? Jesus be a fence all around me everyday...

Speaking of Jesus and his followers... Why is my pastor from Pittsburgh doing a revival in town???????????? YAY!! SOOOO EXCITED! I heard him tonight and last night. AND remember how I told you my church there is ginormous, like 7500 members, and I don't get to talk to him unless there's bible study and... summer Jesus breaks ruined my life. Chile. Drives me bananas! They ended bible study for the summer while I was doing the noon and I didn't get a chance to speak to him. He was receiving people at the front of the church and I went up there to say hello and HE RECOGNIZED ME AND GAVE ME A BIG HUG!! YAY BIBLE STUDY!! I was so excited. Now I'm going to make sure my new church in Florida gets him down there so I can get another dose.

I can't go to the last night of revival tomorrow night because me and my middle school homies are going to happy hour. Does that make me a bad person? We're fellowshipping! I gotta see if Joellen wants to come, too. I LOVE THEM! I have the best friends. And Friday Rashan's coming to visit. YAY!! We're gonna have a blast. We're going to a museum and of course to eat some MEXICAN and an IMAX movie and to watch When Harry Met Sally. YAY!!! Alright homies, holla at a playa when you see me on the street!

"Jesus be a fence all around me everyday..."

LOL! I about fell over at that! The weather was gonna kill me when I went home and everyone was sitting around talking about, "It's not THAT hot and humid," and looking at me like I was a total punk. Whew.

It's true what they say: "It's not the heat. It's the HUMIDITY!"

Just think about that as you prep for Florida. Yeah, yeah...Hampton is on the water, but Florida is different.

Just after a rain on a regular ole day in August or September, you damn near won't be able to breathe, the air will be so thick!

Don't worry, though. You'll grow to love it.

Lol look at you fitting back in at home... Except the heat... But it is exceptionally hot today and I know the carolinas' weather isn't much different than ours. Devilish. Lol the only middle school friend I have is La.

you have a fun filled week coming up! what's the word of the month? EXCITED!!

the humidity will KILL you. 84 degrees (and rising), 95% humidity when you're walking to class at 8am

Opinionated Diva said...

lmao @ "Jesus be a fence all around me every day"...91 degrees @ 8 p.m.???? I aint able...I'd complain about that too!

Sounds like lots of funfilled days ahead for you and the homies...enjoy 'em!

La said...

"We're fellowshipping!"

BWAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

I don't think happy hour is the same as "gathering in his name" but I'm sure even Jesus needed a night cap every now and again, lol.

Oh honey. Poor thing. Florida is gonna be much worse. Not even that its so hot but it's so STICKY and humid. Ugh. Jesus better not be a fence. He better be an air conditioned bubble all around you everyday, lol

Vdizzle said...

LMAO@ La. "Air-conditioned bubble." You are totally a Yank!! But give yourself a few weeks and you'll be like the rest of us in the oven that is the south. You never get used to it, but take the Marine motto and "suffer in silence."

You're not a bad person for going to see your friends.

REVIVALS ROCK!! The praise is always super crunk. Lol.

Epsilonicus said...

That weather sounds like Baltimore in the summer.

Its ok that you are going to happy hour rather than the revival. As all sinners say, God knows your heart lol

Darius T. Williams said...

Yea, the south is particularly hot this time of year. I just left Mississippi where it was like 245 degrees at 8 AM in the morning...isn't that just horrible?

Um, I love revivals. I'm not sure people really leave revived, but I love a good revival. 7500 members? That's my kinda church.

Sparkling Red said...

That is MUCH too hot. :-p

I have to get myself to a revival sooner rather than later. I want that experience. That's the kind of heat I want!

Rashan Jamal said...

I need you to do something about the heat before I get there... IN LESS THAN 48 HOURS!!!

Blowing off church to go drink? That makes you a bad person. Thats so strange that your pastor was stalking you in Pittsburgh. He must really think you are a heathen to be following you down! LOL

Sha Boogie said...

Whenever my pastor hugs me I tell everyone I got Jesus juice on me, LOL!

Happy to hear you made it safe and sound, that heat aint NOT joke. My cousin just told me its 110 in Memphis, sweet Lawd!
