Just 24 hours. Just 1440 minutes. Just 86,440 seconds

Just one day. Just 24 hours. Just 1440 minutes. Just 86,440 seconds. That is all I ask.

Let me first say that I recognize and enjoy the talent of Beyonce Knowles. She is my homegirl you know, we are both from Houston, albeit vastly different sides of the city but we both still represent. Ole Bey is accomplishing things many twice her age would kill for. But I still need just one day. Just 24 hours. Just 1440 minutes. Just 86,440 seconds. That is all I ask.

I mean just check out her list of awards on wikipedia... it goes on and on and on. She is hooked up with Jay, a poetic legend and mogul. And how many people do you know can ride one fucking album for three years. But you know what please, jJust one day. Just 24 hours. Just 1440 minutes. Just 86,440 seconds. That is all I ask.

I would like just one day. Just 24 hours. Just 1440 minutes. Just 86,440 seconds without hearing one of her songs; seeing one of her commercials; thumbing through one magazine without seeing a story, ad, or review; or even hearing someone mention her name.

Seeing that she went strong and basically crushed her sister's 2nd solo release, when most thought she would take a step back... I have totally given up on the notion that she may take a vacation for a month or two and will settle for just one day. Just 24 hours. Just 1440 minutes. Just 86,440 seconds.

House of Deréon, Pepsi, L'Oreal, Samsung, American Express, Empirio Armani, DirecTV, Ford, Milk, McDonald's. The girl is raking in the dollars (can I just get a few thousand to pay off these student loans). But just one day. Just 24 hours. Just 1440 minutes. Just 86,440 seconds.

Maybe I have to just stay in my house alone, not watch TV, turn off my radio alarm clock, dare not to open my Black Enterprise or Essence, not even go near my DVDs and not talk to most homos or my girls. And if you think I am playing start counting now and count for one entire day how many times Beyonce filtrates your life.

Who can keep count? It's impossible Beyonce is everywhere you can't escape from even her shadow these dayz. Not that I am complaining...

Kensilo said...

Amen to That!!! Lord knows....

I can't really say that Beyonce gets much attention here, see Madison's radio stations, television stations and affiliations does not support Black Music or Black Televison Programming, if you want to see Beyonce you better have cable and then only if you have the premium package. On a good day I might see one of her commericals or hear one of her songs so the count would be 2 times daily.

Primo said...

I Agree. Its kinda impossible to even go a day without thinking about her. But i cant be mad at a successful positive black women whos on her J.O.B. esepcially when there so many thats not on they JOB!

Soldier said...

First time hearing about that human being in more than a month... lol
I decided to take the concept her existence out of my reality for a while...
Right after i finish this comment, she'll go back where she belongs... Annoyingville, Nebraksa

A day is actually 86400 seconds. So many people skipped over this important fact.... We often get over saturated/ over stimulated by just about everything. News, music artists, reruns/ syndication, billboards, phone calls, text messages. We should all take a deep breath and accept the things we can not change & the courage to change the things we can or ..... JUST CHANGE THE CHANNEL. There are so many things we can do to avoid this discomfort.. go for a walk, call a friend, take a bath, go to the gym, read a book, write a book, volunteer, play in the garden, clean the house!
