A Realistic Romance Comedy: Life's Not a Lifetime Movie

“Oh shiny ponies on a rainbow, here he comes.”

A Realistic Romance Comedy: Life's Not a Lifetime Movie

“Shi!,” I whispered exasperatedly “If you don’t get up off the ground right now…”

“Shhh B, I need to look convincing if he’s going to believe I’m actually passed out.” Shiloh, my best friend hurriedly whispers back to me. I’m starting to reconsider the best friend part.

“How do you even know that he’ll come over here?” I whisper-ask her.

“You,” she replies, “because of you. Now stop trying to make me giggle, I can’t look passed out if I get into one of my giggling fits,” she covertly chuckles.

“Oh shiny ponies on a rainbow, here he comes.” The he I’m referring to should be the doctor that Shiloh recognized from her stupid Doctors magazine (which she reads religiously) and determined to be just perfect for me at which point she decided the next best form of action would be to fake-pass-out on the sidewalk to get his attention, at which point he would be forced into conversation with, that’s right, me, the best friend of Ms. psycho girl on the sidewalk. But the doctor isn’t who I am referring to.

“Umm, is you’re friend okay?” He questions in an unsure tone. I can understand why he wouldn’t be sure considering we’re in full costume. Did I mention we work at a restaurant, a theme restaurant called Strange Happenings, which requires us to dress up differently depending on the month’s theme. This months’ theme is Cosmic Masquerade. I’m actually kind of surprised he isn’t more confused, with me wearing my neon electric blue glowing skirt and galaxy mask and Shi’s neon pink tutu and neon orange top, we make an interesting duo.

“Umm, yeah, I think she just got dizzy and decided that she needed a minute. . . ?” I reply in a questioning tone.

On first look, he kind of looks like an elf, but in a really good way. He’s totally Shi’s type, not so much mine. He kneels down and asks me, “What’s your friend’s name?”

“Shiloh,” I say, “Let me see if she’ll wake up.” I then proceed to gently pretend slap her and she opens her eyes after the second hit.

“Uhg, oh, I was out there for a minute wasn’t I?” She says.

“It appears so,” The still stranger replies.

“Oh, who are you?” Shi says in a hilariously surprised tone with a quizzical look on her face.

“I’m Ti,” he replies “I saw you over here and wanted to make sure you were okay.”

“Oh, really?” Shi replies with attitude but also a bit of surprise in her tone.

“Yep,” he says and leaves the statement hanging.

I can tell by her look what I’m going to say next…“Shi, if you’re okay I’m going to go home…?” I leave the statement open ended.

“Yeah, yeah I’m fine,” she waves me off, still looking at her new friend Ti.

As I walk away I hear Ti say “So do you want to get a coffee, maybe wake yourself up after your little nap?” and Shi’s subsequent giggle and affirmation.

As I walk the last couple blocks to my apartment building I wonder to myself what I want for dinner.

Michigan Rain Vs. California Rain

SO, I've just recently had the fortunate experience to be reminded just how Michigan rains. Now, before you roll your eyes at me, I HAVE EXPERIENCED RAIN (in regards of the the popular joke that Californians haven't). However, I have to agree; after experiencing one of Michigan's thunderstorms (with my college's sirens blaring in the background), it comes to mind just how different "rain" is between the two states:

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
