About This Blog.

“Hey Ambrosia, why’d you call your blog ‘I Can See Why She’s Single’?” Well, one year I had a birthday. As I’ve done most years, I tried to have a birthday party. And like most years, this party was relatively unsuccessful. I was at least an hour late for my own celebration, by no fault of my own, and as I was walking to the restaurant where several family members were waiting, one of them accidentally sent me the following text messages:

“This is so poorly planned.”

“I can see why she’s single.”

I thought “This Is So Poorly Planned” would be a confusing name for a blog, but that “I Can See Why She’s Single” had potential. And since there are tons of reasons why I’m single that anybody with eyes, ears, and a brain could point out, it’d be a fun way for me to tell mostly true stories about my life as an over-30 black woman who hasn’t had a boyfriend, sex, or a date with a man she was physically attracted to in more than a decade.

“Hey Ambrosia, does the family member who sent those texts, which weren’t very nice by the way, know about this blog? What did he/she have to say when he/she found out?” Wow, you’re super nosy. Um, I don’t know if they know about it or if they ever will. Our relationship, already weak prior to the party, is now nonexistent.  Should they somehow stumble across this humble blog, I can’t begin to imagine what they’d have to say about it. But this is what I have to say to them:

Thank you. Especially if I someday get a book deal out of this. Even though I’m pretty sure I would have come up with something like this on my own anyway, but still. But I’m not going to give you a cut of the profits or even mention you in the foreword or afterword or special thanks or anything, ’cause you were mean, so yeah.

    I’m so glad that you’re finally letting your talented voice be heard by creating a blog! It breaks my heart, however, to see how self-deprecating and sad it is.
    Howevering my own “however”, though, an artists voice must spring purely from within, without selfcensoring or thought of appropriateness.
    So fuck the world. Cry your blues. I hope it brings you catharsis, redemption, and change.
    Write On!

    You sound absolutely hysterical – and real. You nailed the blog title. Can’t a girl be late to her own party?! Yeesh. I don’t if Madonna or Lady Gaga show up on time…. 😉 Rock on with your fabulous self! Cheers.

    Ouch! Taking something that stings and creating beauty, nice job. Of course I laughed, just a little.
