How Well Do You Really Know Someone?

Question-mark-blackandwhite

Is it the way they say I love you, that make you think you know him or her? Is it the way that he holds you at night when you are alone, and no one else is around? Maybe it’s the way she makes you breakfast before you rush out the door and before the electrician or pool boy comes in. Or rather he tells you he is in his separate space, because he likes this area as his man cave, but in reality; it’s more than a man cave.

It’s where he goes to escape mentally from you and all the stress that you place on him, the place he goes to unwind and think about what has transpired the night before with a woman that won’t nag; but just satisfy his every need. Or maybe it’s her that says she’s out with her girls but what dubious behavior she displays. Gyrating from one man to the next letting lust fall where it wishes. I ask again, “How well do you really know someone?”

Knowing someone is really a big commitment and with that comes trust, honesty, and loyalty. Let’s say one day for the sake of argument and I have seen this time and time again on so many movies and shows, that trust, loyal, and commitment have been thrown by the wayside due to lust, sex, desire, yearning, and deceitfulness. You think you know one another so well, and then his or her best friend does the unthinkable!!

While you and your significant other is trying your best to get pregnant, your best friend is already pregnant with his first child and you have no clue; and you never will. Your best friend does the unthinkable with the pregnancy, so you don’t every know; just to spare you the humiliation, the insanity, and the abhorrence. Let’s keep this in mind this can go both ways, vice versa, it’s a two-way street here we are talking about knowing each other.

The lies that he tells you that anger you, you should be mad, I would? The way that he tells them, he can’t keep the story straight. The lies change constantly, more frequently than he changes his draws. Yes, what about her? She looks innocent enough, but is she? Of course not, imagine where those lips have been and who they have been on she is just as guilty. So, you see I was once told by a friend of minds a very long time ago, and yes, she was married for over sixty something years and she stated, and I quote “It doesn’t matter how long you have been with someone you will NEVER know ever thing about that person, NEVER.”

She said it and I believe it and I hope you really enjoyed my piece I have just written, because it makes you really think about people and how well you will NEVER know them, and how you will never know everything about that person, even when they say, “I am an open book”. Yeah you say that but, just like a book it to has many interpretations also.

I hope and pray that when that person is found, he or she is great, wonderful, and doesn’t hold back anything. Be that open book with no room for interpretations. Be awesome, be transparent, honest, trustworthy, loving, caring, God fearing, committed, and loyal. I know I have found mines all Glory goes to God.

Food Review: Mission BBQ “The America Way”

The America Way is the slogan at Mission BBQ and it seems like they are standing up to their slogan. They proudly open their doors on September 11, 2011. As I entered one of their establishments I notice the loud greeting from behind the counter as they were preparing the food “Welcome to Mission BBQ, we will be right with you.” My party replied as we looked over the menu and watch them prepare the orders in front of us.

The way they are set up; you place your order up front and move along the line. They have quite the options to pick from. You can get the Market sampler which you can choose two or three meats which includes sliced brisket, turkey, chopped brisket, pulled chicken, pulled pork, and sausage (jalapeno & chorizo). There are racks and sandwiches you can order from also.

When you order those combos you then have a choice of side which includes Maggie’s mac-n-cheese, cold slaw, baked beans w/ brisket, seasonal side, and green beans & bacon. I know this sounds yummy, but we have just scrapped the surface because, I have not even spoken to you about the taste of some of these items on the menu. Are they worthy to be called “The America Way?”

The sauces they have to choose from have crazy ranges in taste of spicy to darn outright good smokey bbq sauces and they are as follows: Memphis Belle, KC Classic, Tupelo Honey Heat, Craftsman Special, Smoky Mountain, Alabama White, Carolina Vinegar, Texas Twang, Bay-B-Que, Georgia Mustard. With names like those the taste GOT TO be right!!

So, as we sit down we notice that the tables are filled with six different BBQ flavors for you to choose from for your meal; along with a roll of paper towel for your messing hands. The staff are very friendly making sure you are taken care of and all your needs are attended to; even going the extra mile to make short conversation while you wait for your food.

As I am sitting, I couldn’t help but notice the décor; former Veterans, first responders, fire fighters, soldiers, officers, and soldiers that are serving our country. Yes, this place did speak loud volumes of the American Way. Many people in the United States have gave their life for our freedoms and looking around at these walls make you feel nostalgic about where you are from and what others have done for you to be here today.

Okay, food is here, and I ordered the pulled pork and the sausage, and my husband ordered the sliced brisket and ribs along with two side and cornbread with both orders. The sausage was amazing, it was a party in my mouth the great spice with the chorizo and jalapeno was an awesome mixture. The two together was not to over powering, a great relationship. The pull pork was nice and wet, I hate pull pork that is dry, and this was nice and moist. The choice of sauce made it a great pair and I was very happy with the pull pork. I also tasted my husbands sliced brisket and oh my God!! It was wonderful, once again here it was moist and not dry at all. It was tender, and it was like falling apart and the sauce that he chose was out of this world; two thumbs up.

The side are just as great as the meals itself, just be careful with the deserts it can be a little to sweet. Like the peach cobbler, if you are a diabetic I would not recommend it. Some things work good at restaurants like this one and some things don’t; desert aren’t their forte. So, do Mission BBQ stand up to their slogan “The American Way” I would have to say YES. Thank you, Mission BBQ, for your great BBQ and for what you stand for.

Traces of You

Traces of you on your birthday, all I have is the memories all I have is emptiness, but God fills it with joy, God fills it with peace, God gives me the strength to see all the loving memories that we had, that we will have in the future. Traces of you is what we had, traces of you is all I see on your birthday, how could this be? We were so close as the sap of a pecan tree. Traces of you on your birthday, I wish I could reach out and say how much I love you. Traces of you on your birthday, I wish I could pick up the phone and say I love you. Traces of you on this day, it’s a bittersweet sadness that God has taken away, he makes me not feel sorry, he makes me not feel sad, he makes me feel happy, he makes me feel the joy that he God can only bring; such a joy to a person’s life, a person choice to distant themself is painful. I wish I had more time, I long for more, I reach out for more, I’ve done all I could but, I only have traces of you on today, on your birthday.
