Cosmonaut - Your Knife (My Side)
Alex on September 26 2013
Today I write this post with great joy and a sense of life completion. Whilst walking my dog last night an older black gentleman came up to me and proclaimed "I LIKE HIM" referring to my blue pit bull. Obviously I responded with "I like HER too" I told him she's friendly and to say hi to her. We chatted for a bit about pit bulls and parted ways. We take about 5 paces in opposite directions before he finally says it. He turns around and says "I like her a lot.. my man!" I almost fell to my knees in joy. It was the most quintessential Denzel Washington "my man" I've ever heard. I wanted to yell so the world knew "I'M HIS MAN!" For years I've wanted an older black man to call me "my man!" and that day has finally come. My tombstone will now read "Alex Mejias - music blogger, jiu jitsu junkie, and my man!"
