I always like to look pretty. I like dresses, heels, eyeliner, mascara and red lipstick. I would go out to dinner with my mom and sister a lot. My sister always complained that I would take forever to get ready. It takes work to look cute, you know!
She once said,”Sonia, we’re going to Olive Garden not the ball!”
“But what if I run into the President? I’m not going to look dirty in front of the President!,” I would reply.
My boo thang wouldn’t complain but he would sometimes tell me to take it down a notch. Don’t get him wrong. He always thinks I look pretty in dresses. Its just that when we would be hitting up, let’s say, Double Wide Grill for example, he would tell me to put on my booty shorts instead of my dresses because he felt too dressed down in his jeans.
“But boo,” I said, “What if I run into the President? I want to look nice in front of the President!”
Well, lo and behold! Today, I turned on the morning news, my usual routine as I get ready for work. Turns out that, today, the most famous (and fellow) Chicagoan is visiting Carnegie Mellon University (CMU) here in Pittsburgh. Yes, that’s right. Mr. President Obama is in Pittsburgh and I’m prepared.
I knew I wasn’t crazy and had good reason to look cute. Now, when I meet the President I’ll be looking extra fly. Too bad Mrs. Obama isn’t around. We’ve could’ve shared fashion tips!
