AIDS is real

so there was a heavy downpour the day K-CI and jojo were supposed to perform, so they have not performed yet. i hear they are performing today. i say they should just pack up they bags and go home. just to save them the embarassment of getting on stage and there are no revellers, coz lets face it, they are way past their sale-by date. plus, they had like what two hits? or was it one? anyway, so they are going to perform tonite on a wednesday, just before the end of the month... i am telling you i have bad vibes about this show.

i did head this post AIDS is real so i guess i owe y'all an explanation. yesterday, a work mate came with this wild(what i thought at first)tale about having seen a list of people living with HIV in this town. i hear she got it from a very reliable source bla bla bla. anyway, some of the names on that list were all too farmiliar-not because i have slept with any of those people- but because some of those people have slept with peope i have been very close to. this revelation shook me so bad i rushe to the loos to get sick. turns out, this very pretty 20 something hot babe, got enticed by this night club mogul(married), who got her a house, furnished it, gives her an enormous monthly allowance, but also gave the HIV(for good measure?). i know this gal.

anyway, why it hit home so much is because she is so hot, every guy i knew wanted to go to bed with her. so imagine the average guy dates her, goes to bed with her, things dont work out, average guy meets average girl(me?), she goes to bed with him...you see the cycle? that right there is what got me shook pretty bad.

anyway, later in the afternoon i got news that some guy that once dated my cousin had passed on from AIDS. he was only 27!!! dont you just hate it when a person that young dies?

so be careful y'all. this is for real. AIDS KILLS!!!!

19 loungers burdening me:

AIDS is real. But more-real is the state of affairs in Southern Africa. :o( They are dying like we don't love them.

Mr.Back2Basics... said...

Yep..
i once was called to do a presentation on AIDS at work, and my uncle had just passed coz of AIDS...

so, yeah, i hear you!

Even more than 27th-C...

and about K-Ci & JoJo, same sentiments...

though they did have 3 or 4 that i still appreciate!

You can know how real it is when you are sitting in the waiting room of a clinic,counting all the hunky punkies you have had as you wait for your results.Not so funny believe me.

Lev said...

Just be carefull sweetheart. Make smart choices, you seem like a really smart girl!

people in Kampala are no longer afraid of HIV. Heard a story about a couple who went for a test. Guy was positive, girl was negative, but she wanted to marry the guy and have kids with him.

Then one girl told me that she would still date me if I told her I was HIV positive.

antipop said...

@27th, i agree, S.A vs AIDS,is just one sad tale.but how do we help?
@MB2B,who hasn't lost a relative to AIDS?but why is it claiming more of us?
@duksey, you had to go and giv this sad post a comic face.thanx love
@lev, my heart goes out to you... and i am taking your advice, i wil be careful
@magoo, you must be some hot number if this gal would throw it all away for you... er, can we hook up? no? oh well
@ everybody, veri grateful for your comments. they bring me to tears...

tumwijuke said...

Now that your tears have dried ... did you actually go to see Kblah and Jowhoever yesterday?

Be silent said...

AIDS i have no comment we all seem to know what is happening but some how we get careless. Duksey i know that feeling in the waiting room. Kci $ Jojo the tickets were slashed to half price 15k ha ha ha

Rae said...

Its real yes, but we need to change our attitute towards people with it...
all of us have been affected in a way, or have we forgotten nothing?

Support is the key for those infected, stigma kills faster than the deficiency.

Majonzi said...

Yes, AIDS is much too real for many of us... .

On a lighter note, I was @ KCi and Jojo concert last week-- eh, good stuff!! Who did not like Jodeci, come on! I had the greatest time! Both jamaas were weeded out, so they were HYPER and hilarious!!!

Some people prefer to live in denial. Seems to work wonders for them :(

Phoenix said...

Nyabo we need to talk [you know why-lol]
Oh God, I cant believe the rate at which its taking over the country and continent. you hear people die of AIDS and you think they were promiscuous or they were maliced and it never crosses your mind that it could be you. I sooo know the waiting room shivers...I had a cousin who peed on himself only to run before the results were given to him...

But Magoola what is it exactly you gve these girls?

~ScotchBiscuits~ said...

I have all kinds of things to say about aids being real. but I'll put that in a post.
Looks like I would be the only one at the KCI and JOJO show. Yeah, I'm weird like that.
you should download 'down for life' when you get a minute. it's the perfect realistic yet lovey dovey song. sorta. kinda. it's nice like grilled cheese sandwich and sprite when you are hungry.

Im shaken everytime this topic is brought up

Carlo said...

Someone went to Kblah and Jowhoever's show? More than one!!! Unbelievable!
Some of us have to live with the less scary HIV daily so it stopped scaring us. We are however more careful for it. But because it's there we still get up and go about our daily lives. We just hope AIDS doesn't come in too soon.

Jaybabe said...

The same thing is preached everyday but, to some people seems like the message is falling into deaf ears. But i hope one day we shall overcome all this.

Thanx for stopping by. Havent beem here in a very long time.
