Yes, I said it. This list is a resounding NO for me.

Let’s say on November 2, 2022, President Biden and all the world officials interrupt our normal broadcast to announce an asteroid will hit planet Earth before January 1, 2023.

Yes, I’d probably be somewhere with a book stuck in my face and wouldn’t know anything about it until my sister calls me and tells me, “It’s all over the gram, Queen. The world is over.”

I would be upset.

I would be distraught.

I would want to gather with all my family, my boyfriend, old friends, new friends, and My Crew!

I would want to meet some of you in person.

I would book a trip to Jamaica. Eat exotic fruit. Dance my tears away.

But, Fam I have a list of Hell Nos too!

1️⃣ Hell no, I will not have a drunken one-night stand with a stranger. Not even a sober one-night stand.

I don’t care how fine he is. Not even Idris Elba himself. And I think he is a fine specimen of a man, dripping sexy all over the place.

But no, we won’t be drunk in love. I’ve got my own Sexiest Man Alive.

Wait hold on, let me take a second look…Nah.

2️⃣ I’m with my girl Daniella. No Bungee Jumping for me.

First of all, thank you, Daniella, for the proper spelling of Bungee, LOL. 👍I don’t need a thrill that badly. Just hanging upside down dangling from a string?

Pho’ What?

3️⃣ I will not permanently straighten my hair again.

I love my curls, coils, and kinks. I want young black girls to proudly wear their natural hair.
