Okay, I promise the comedy will be back soon. I need a break from all the sad crap in my life. YOU GUYS need a break from all the sad crap in my life.
I was talking to my friend today. Here’s the gist of the conversation:
Me: “I feel like there is this heavy weight on me – like I can’t breath.”
Friend: “You are leaving the house?”
Me: “Yeah. I’m leaving the house…I left yesterday. I need to go on a Dave Chappelle.”
Friend: “Oh shit – is that in our lexicon now?”
Me: “It is now. I said his name and you knew what I was talking about. The phrase perfectly communicated an idea. Done. It’s in our lexicon.”
A ‘Dave Chappelle’ is a spiritual sabbatical. Which beats the hell out of an OJ Simpson, a Rodney King or a Michael Jackson. Basically its a black man’s name that isn’t something violent or depraved. Dr. King would be proud.
And I think we can all agree that once a term goes black – it never goes back.
So, I totally need to go on a Dave Chappelle.
