#18 Being on "Mo'Nique in the Afternoon"

(A JAM C) This could be my second time revisiting my blog about how biracial people like to act more black around black people, but this entry deserves to be it's own entity.

So yesterday, I was listening to the radio, and the Mo'Nique show was on. They were asking people to call in and tell them stories about how they got something fake and tried to play it off as real. I immediately remembered when I was in 8th grade, and my step dad gave me a Rolex. At first, I thought it was real, so I showed it off to everybody acting like I was a baller.

Then, my stepdad told me it wasn't real, but it didn't matter. I wasn't going to be like "yeah I thought it was real, but it actually isn't."

Anyway, I called the Mo'Nique show for the first time EVER, and I got through. Needless to say, I was nervous. The guy I talked to told me it was going to be 12-14 minutes before I got on, so I was thinking that I would just pull the car over and wait for her to say my name. ONE MINUTE LATER, I hear Mo'Nique say "how you doin' Alex?" As I'm driving the stick shift about to make a turn, Mo'Nique asks me how I'm doing, so that just made me even more nervous.

But yeah, I tried to stick in there like a champ until the very end. I told my story, and she asked me a couple of questions. After the second question, there was an awkward pause that just seemed to take forever, so I said the first thing that came to my mind... "it's a good story."

Just in case you were wondering Mo'Nique, the story I just told you... it was good. It wasn't just good, it was HOT! It's so good that it should be made into a movie. If not, then at least an E! True Hollywood story.

She laughed at me at the end, but she's really nice about things, so I definitely didn't take it personally.
