Around the Way Girl, That's the One for Me
She can walk with a switch and talk with street slang
I love it when a woman ain't scared to do her thing
Standing at the bus stop sucking on a lollipop
Once she gets pumping its hard to make the hottie stop
She likes to dance to the rap jams...
I picked up Around the Way Girl: A Memoir: Taraji P. Henson and immediately read it cover to cover. I've always loved her spicy demeanor and grew to love her even more with her role as Cookie Lyon. But it wasn't just her character that had me enthralled, it was my man's obsession with her character. He couldn't get enough. Cookie had stolen his heart in much the same way I had a few years back.
I rode the bus today while jammin' to Rob Base, and it got me thinking. Much like Ms. Henson, I feel like it's my time to shine and be fully appreciated for all that I have become. Take a bite outta that bitches. I know my man will cuz he finds my Cookie-ness mighty tasty. And if you don't like my flavor? Then get outta my kitchen.
