An Affair To Remember...But To Celebrate?

“I believe the children are our future…”, “I will always love you…”, even, “I wanna dance with somebody”, we all have our memories of Whitney Houston. For some of us it goes back to the early 90’s, others are only familiar with the infamous Whitney. (The cocaine, Bobby Brown era) Which ever Whitney you recall, she has touched, entertained and influenced so many.

Recently we celebrated a “holiday” here in America, national “side chick appreciation” day. I’ll wait…yes side chick appreciation day. A day to show some love to the woman potentially breaking up your family. There is actually a calendar day set aside with the sole purpose of acknowledging the number 2, or maybe 3 woman in a man’s life, and I don’t mean his daughters or mama. Have we really stumbled so low as a society that we recognize and celebrate “ol’ girl”?

Maybe I’m a little old fashioned, but the mistress doesn’t get kudos. She doesn’t get praise. This is another example of folks not playing their position. Let’s take this back to Whitney…she orchestrated and delivered a pin point blueprint for mistress behavior.

“Saving all my love for you”, was the hoe’s handbook. Learn your position:

“A few stolen moments is all that we share
You’ve got your family, and they need you there
Though I’ve tried to resist, being last on your list
But no other man’s gonna do
So I’m saving all my love for you”

Men you’re messing up out here in these streets! Stop with all this nonsense! Stop parading your side chick like she’s somebody. If you are fortunate enough to have a good woman at home, but too stupid not to cheat, at least have some respect…and not for the side chick! She chose her path. She is Rick Fox, she will never be Kobe Bryant. Now I know life for her isn’t easy, but Whitney addresses that as well:

“It’s not very easy, living all alone
My friends try to tell me, find a man of my own
But each time I try, I just break down and cry
Cause I’d rather be home feeling blue
So I’m saving all my love for you”

The life of a mistress... Seriously, this type of behavior is what crystallizes in my mind the fall of respect, self esteem and character in today's society. Ladies I fault you on this one. Sure the man lacks moral fiber, but he has to, if he was truly that great of a man he wouldn't be in that situation in the first place. In other words, you know what you’re getting yourself in to. You are worth so much more than the February 15th 70% off flowers and candy.

I'll even go as far as to say that some men are conflicted. They honestly have deep real feelings for more than just one woman, but that still doesn't mean anything. Best case scenario, he abandones his family for you???

Side chick appreciation day is nothing more than the parading of low class men and lower self esteemed women. Because at the end of the day, while you’re saving all your love for him, he’s already given all of his to her.
