Last weekend, I promised my baby boomer diva girlfriend, Donna Maria that I would support her Teen Fest 2K7 project.So today, I kept my word and went over to North Carolina Central University to watch the performances of several talented young people from Raleigh-Durham and the surrounding area.

Donna Maria, being the spectacular woman that she is, managed to get two celebrity male judges to help her out.They were men I recognized from back in the day AND they're actually baby boomers themselves.You remember Christopher "Play" Martin from the Kid-n-Play House Party Movies?And then there was Darryl "DMC" McDaniel from the musical group RUN-DMC.They were the pioneers of hip-hop---when hip hop was still respectable.I used to love that song "Walk this Way."

Well anyway, at intermission, I took the opportunity to go over to them and introduce myself and give them a copy of my book.(Actually, Christopher is on my email buddy list).I told Darryl to give his copy to his wife Zuri.I suggested Chris give it to his mom, at which time he informed me she had passed away last month.It was at that moment that I wanted to give him a bear hug but then I thought I might not want to let go of that fine baby boomer man so I kept my composure and offered my condolenses.

Now here's where it gets a little blurry.During my interaction with these fine gentlemen I started to feel a little flush. You know, it was like a nervous perspiration but then I thought "Oh no, I'm too old to be getting THOSE kind of feelings because I'm going through menopause, so I must be having a hot flash!"

Well, whatever it was---it actually felt pretty good.
