Welcome To Quittin’ Season
Just what is Quittin’ Season exactly? Allow me to break it down briefly because I don’t have much time to write at length today.
Quittin’ Season is pretty self-explanatory; it’s the transitional weeks between Winter and Spring when all of us single people who were dating during the Winter months are quittin’ on the people we were dating. I began to use this term a couple of weeks ago when I noticed girls I’ve been dating since the temperature started dropping below 30 were starting to quit on me, for whatever reason. They didn’t exactly use the words, “I quit you” but they quit on me in some way or another.
I’m not mad at this, nor am I complaining. As we all say when we don’t know what to say at all, “It is what it is.” I simply wanted to put this term out their in the seasonal relationship lexicon. Everyone knows we’ve taken to calling Winter “boo season” or “cuffin’ season”. Spring has for centuries been known as the season of love. Summer is the “single season”. Fall is…I don’t even know what Fall is for everyone, but I know Fall for me is HBCU Homecoming Season, which is essentially “single season” in 60 degree weather.
And now, this time between Winter and Spring, it’s Quittin’ Season. Y’all better act accordingly, especially guys because trust, the girl who quits us now, if she’s smart, is going to look fine as hell in the Summer.
Wait a minute, nevermind. They’re all going to look good in the Summer.
Happy Quittin’ everybody.
The Process: Briefly, a story: So when I don’t have coffee at the house, I go down to Dunkin’ Donuts where I order a large coffee with skim, no sugar or anything. I go in this morning, place my order, and the whole team who has gotten to know me over time commented on how different I’ve looked. The lady says, “Have you been exercising? You’ve lost weight.” I explained to them what I’ve been doing (courtesy of my trainer) and how taking my coffee with no sugar has helped.

UNTIL I GET MARRIED CONVERSATION: TONIGHT, at 10 EST. I’ll be hosting a virtual discussion for a half-hour via my Twitter feed and Facebook fan page. The hashtag for the Twitter conversation will be #UIGM. Still have no idea what it will be about, it might be about relationships or pop culture. Maybe a merger of both? Don’t know yet, but we’ll see.
