I'm getting Married...

Disclaimer : No, I'm not getting married.

"Picture us Married, You and Me, K-I-S-S-I-N-G" -
Nasir Jones

So my daily mental ipod session occurred again this time the song was "Getting Married" by Nas. For some reason if I hear a song I go into a weird zone, where I start visualizing different scenarios and imagery of certain situations. I Imagined what my wedding would be like, like it would be some extravagant royal wedding(Ala Prince Akeem) or Something subtle and Secretive(see: Jay and B) But I quickly shook out of the thought because honestly the thought was quite scary.

In my earlier years during one of my late night Phone Conversations she asked me "Do I ever want to get married", I nearly hung up on her, the nerve and audacity of this girl to think that I would ever hang up my jersey and retire to the same female for the rest of my life. Looking back at that I smile and think that the inevitable is someday going to happen when I have to make "the final walk".

Ms Sampson was my English Lit teacher at school, and after I handed in a paper on an event that you're least looking forward to in the future, she asked me I would stay after class to speak with her, I instantly was like "Oh sh*t" what could I have done wrong, "Mr. Holmes, I love your assignment your imagery was very vivid and kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time, may god bless the woman who marries you(Loud Laugh)", I believed Ms. Sampson was making a pass at me, How could she not want me after reading my excellent piece of literature. The event I was least looking forward to was, well you know marriage.

The scene was immaculate at the Polo Mansion as Oha Sang "Queen to be",His vocals gracefully flowed through the speakers, pearly marble floors glistened as woman in star studded freak em' dresses and thin Stiletto heels graced the crowd, As each of my grooms men looked sharp as ever in coogi sweaters, Kangol Hats, Polo slacks and Clark's wallabies. The crowd was reminiscent of a Lakers game at the staples center in mid June, Star after Star even a Bulletproof Black Yukon was doubled parked in front which revealed None other than Mr. and Mrs Barack Obama, Diddy Winked at me and said " It's cheaper to keep her,Bad boy, Take that, Take that" which then began to give me moments of nervousness and have a flashback of my "Playing days", I flashed back to my first kiss or my boys and I at the Pizza shop spinning a pie to see who would land their dream girl one day, first case of blue balls and finally hitting the ball out the park. As My bride approached the alter and I pulled out the ring in which I found at the bottom of the titanic, my bride to be as beautiful as ever due to her Help from David Tutera and his "expertise", As she read her vows, Reverend Jesse Jackson asked me Do I do? Jordan do you take her?....... I then woke up and breathed a sigh of relief that this was all I dream, I then got scared that one day I won't be able to wake up and that this could be my fate....

Rnow I think it's understandable to not want to...it is a scary thing. But in time you'll be surprised at how your feelings may shift.

Lol, marriage is not that bad Jordan.
Besides, at around 29/30/31 all your boys will be wifed and you'll be the lone player.
Games get tired, everyone needs someone to hold them down at some point.
... A girl that you couldn't even imagine another dude touching, when you find her (if you haven't already) TRUST, you'll put a ring on it, quicker than quick!

Marriage is not that bad, but I look at marriage like Lockdown. Like the same thing for the rest of your life, Imagine eatting the same food or wearing the same outfit for the rest of your life? How would you feel? Hell renee half of us are wifed up now anyway
