The Mixtape

Back in high school, I was extremely shy so I was never the guy to approach a girl and let her know that I liked her. Passing the note with the box for yes, no or maybe was a little corny once you reached 10th grade. So I used to put together a mixtape of my favorite slow jams (remember when people would actually sing about love and not just bonin'?) and pass it on to the target of my affection. Well, I've gotten over being shy but I miss being able to make those tapes. I probably still have a box of those bad boys somewhere. Today seemed like the perfect day to make another for old times sake. Let me know what y'all think!

This dude I used to date used to make me CDs...we were both into Prince so it had a lotta "Adore" and "Beautiful Ones" on it...but it's the thought that counts, right?

I sure miss those days...

fos - Welcome to the Playground! I hope to see more of you here. This is educational for me too. Learning about myself by exposing myself (not literally).
