First off thanks to everyone who hit up the comment box the last few days. I'm feeling the love so thank y'all for making a brother feel appreciated.
Anyway with a title like today's' you guys must be saying Jdid like he going give we a spicy blog today. Well maybe, maybe not we'll see.
Now recently I've been telling you all about the heat we've been getting in Toronto. Yep, Toronto known more for its cold and more cold has been getting some temperatures around 30-34 degrees Celsius and with the humidex that is going past 40 degrees Celsius (thats 100F) mark on some days. (oh I wrote most of this blog last week before the rains descended in case you're wondering) Now that is some proper heat trust me on that and after the winter that we had I man no complain about that regardless of the humidity and the smog. I mean ideally I'd like to be somewhere on a beach with pristine air and a cooling breeze but if I cant have that I would still take the heat and humidity over the cold any day of the week.
Now ya know once heat in the place the first thing that duz happen around here in Toronto. Yep clothes coming off, skin expose people walking 'bout looking lawless! And it doesn't even have to be the sort of heat we getting now just let the temperature pop past 12 degrees Celsius and some folks bust out the shorts and start getting their tan on outside.
So you can only imagine how much clothing coming off in this heat we had here early last week when the temps were in the 30s. Now don't get me wrong it doesn't really bother me one way or the other if clothes come off or not cause ya don't need to tek off ya clothes to catch my attention. I grow up in the Caribbean and I quite accustom seeing skin so it aint no real issue for me if ya feel I getting titilated by the sights. I mean I aint going say I aint enjoy some of it but at the same time its not really excite a brother too much.
What is an issue for me though is when the bare skin is a little too close to me. Like for instance, last week some day I got on the bus to head home during rush hour. Somehow I was lucky to grab a seat facing the aisle. Now waiting as the bus driver took his sweet time to go into the bathroom or whatever it is they do at Kennedy station after they arrive from the previous trip, the bus started to slowly fill up until there was only standing room. As the standing room too started to fill up in walks this one tall young girl wearing what I can only describe as a fuzzy sports bra with long sleeves and a pair of low rim jeans (I don't call them no low rise is low rim) so all her stomach expose and she also has a silver belly ring.
So I am sitting in my seat staring through the window half tired just trying to relax after my hard day at work and 'when ya hear de shout' this girl came and held on to the pole in front of me and start chatting on a cell phone. More space in the bus and you're supposed to go stand in the back but no one ever does and so she came to a stop right smack dab in front of me. So one minute I'm relaxing looking out at the parking lot and next thing bram! A belly ring and two hard hip bones and an exposed navel staring me straight in the face right at eyeball level and no more than 8 inches from my nose. Rather uncomfortable for me I'd say.
Now tell me what is the proper etiquette for that situation? Do I just sit there and stare at the bellyring, do I try to avert my eyes by staring off to an angle or do I just hang my head and stare at my lap?
And people in the bus staring at her because of how she's dressed and then they staring at me to see if I staring at her. So what was I supposed to do? Well I was looking straight ahead when she came and push she belly up in my face so I don't see why I should be fidgeting and trying to look no where else but ahead. I lie?
Anyway a little later in the trip she moves down a bit in the bus and then totally obscures the sight of the lil fellow with the Muslim headgear that was sitting next to me and the poor man had was to put he hands over he eyes and pretend he cant see nuttin. Cuhdear!
Then there is the cleavage thing. I tell y'all I not complaining by a longshot but ok this scenario happen to me twice in the last two weeks. I'm on public transit again, this time I standing, my eyes inadvertently just happen to glance down at the person sitting in front of me when whoa! I realize that this woman is just showing off major major major cleavage with a low low low cut thing I can see almost to her navel. My eyes must now jump back up and look straight ahead through the window and pretend like 'la la nothing to see here, nothing to see here' cause I cant risk looking down again because next thing ya hear Jdid is a ol pervert and look how he staring at women breasteses on the bus and train and thing. Next thing ya know somebody arrest me or somebody man or brother want to lik me upside my head with a two by four and I aint do nuttin.
But what ya going to do? The women will wear what they wearing and I got to look where my eyes take me so if cleavage and eyes happen to converge ya cant hold me responsible, my eyes didn't know what was going to be in their line of sight. I wasn't searching for cleavage it just happen to find it. Anyway that is my story and I sticking to it.
Anyway its officially summer so I guess the skin will be shown but still there are some times when you find your eyes looking at things you would rather not be looking at or that you start to feel a bit uncomfortable seeing up close.
Oh what I should say although I don't want to lecture is ladies its important not to go too far with the dressing though. Saw a rather thick young lady at Kennedy a few weeks back and she was wearing a nice summer dress. Only thing the dress was probably a few sizes small for her so curves shooting out blam blam and blam all over the place, cleavage popping out, butt sticking out and the dress so short and flimsy that with every step I thought her underwear would be exposed.
Now if you dress that way oh for sure the guys will look and you will get attention which I assume is the purpose of such attire but that don't mean that you looking decent. So yea you will get attention but is it really the type of attention you want. Or is attention like publicity in that any attention is good attention. I don't know but anyway I done with that cause I aint lecturing anyone. Wear what ya wearing and I will look where I got to look.
