As you all know, I live in Dallas, TX.
I am not from here, but this is where I have made my home. I have lived here on and off since 1992. My first stint here was in El Paso. I lived there for 2 years before relocating to Germany. After 5 years in Duetchland, I came back to Tejas, to the Ft. Hood-Killeen area. I stayed there for 3 years before moving to San Antonio. After a hell on earth year and a half I moved to Dallas, where I have been for the past 7 plus years.
I like Dallas.
Dallas is a pretty cool city. The cost of living is decent, there is a decent sized Black population, there is a lot of Black American culture here and to top it off, Dallas was not hit that hard by the recession, unlike other major US cities. I mean if a person can't find a job here, well, they just don't want a job. The housing market is pretty good, house prices are really low compared to the rest of the country. For what I paid for my 4 bedroom, 2 garage, big back-yard house, I would have not been able to get a one bedroom apartment back on the Eastern side of thangs where I was born and raised.
So don't get it twisted folks.... There are a lot more things here besides steers and queers, even though there is a good population of both here.
With that being said, let me switch up a little bit......
It is hot as 3 hells here.
Texas only has 2 seasons, Hot as fuck and sometimes cold.
It starts getting hot around April and the shit don't let up until about October. It has been like that the entire time I have called Texas home. So around this time of year I expect it and prepare for a lot of time under some AC.
What irritates me worse than Macy Gray's voice, is every year around this time the local Texans complaining about the damn heat. I mean the people that was born and raised here. The people with the "Texas is it's on country" mentality.
I mean these people have lived here their entire lives and they are surprised about the damn Texas summer heat?
After a lifetime of living 3 doors down from hell every summer, the fucking heat surprises you? Every damn year?
What the hell do these people expect? The weather all of a sudden to change during the damn summer?
I mean it is TEXAS people!! Texas is hotter than 2 mice fucking in a wool sock every year around this time!
So why complain about the same shit year after hot ass year?
To me it is like people in Alaska being proud of their former half term Governor, Black people that belong to the Republican Party,or people in Chicago complaining about crime. It makes no damn sense.. Not nan.
It is what it is.
So with that being said, let me turn this AC up a little bit, because it is going to be another long hot Summer.
