Kinda Sorta Famous

in pursuit of life, love, and the opportunity to be…

the at least factor

So I was listening to the Steve Harvey Show this morning and a chic wrote in the Strawberry 23 Letters about her “boyfriend” of 1.5 years or so.

Basically, dude is slippin and is doing “just enough” to remain in a relationship with her.

Instead of moving on,  she relies on the At Least Factor…

  • at least he got a job
  • at least he got a car
  • at least he’s good in the bedroom

Steve Harvey did a great job breaking it down for the chic. Hell, he even gave me a few points causing me to hit the ceiling of my car! (Something I do when I get excited in the car, lol.)

But what sparked this entry was the At Least Factor.

I mean think about it, how often do we say, “Well AT LEAST, he/she ___________.”

Wack. Cause the truth of the matter is if they didn’t have a car we’d be all, “Well AT LEAST he got a ten-speed and good legs.” And if no bike, well AT LEAST etc. etc.

But, I mean AT LEAST he’s trying to see you on his own and not asking you to pick him up. Hell, maybe he’s Going Green.

When we say “at least” are we settling? Or are we looking at the bright side?

Half empty or half full?

Maybe we should all just make a pros and cons list for the potentials we meet. Only problem is, when the cons list gets longer, and it will, we would sit there. Looking all crunchy.

And then what, you ask?

We’d get our pen…

Go to the pros side of the paper…

And start writing our AT LEASTS.

*sigh*
