Remember Latimore's "Let's Straighten It Out".
This brings back some memories from my child/teenhood. I hadn't heard the song in awhile but when i did, i remembered a party, a particular birthday party i had...
I was liking this boy, let's just call him Freddie. Well, me and Freddie had been giving eyes at the local ballpark. He was a silly boy, cute with that Sylvers Afro, (if you don't remember The Sylvers, they had really, really big fros, tight fros). He had nice, big, kind eyes and was tall too. Caramel colored, with teeth an a smile to die for.
Sooooo, me and my best friend figured out we would have a birthday party and invite him. WE did and guess what he showed up. I also invited a local acquaintance, a young lady who had just moved around the block, and yep, she showed up too. KB (her name) was pretty fly. She dressed just like she walked off the stage of Soul Train. She had the Butterflies in her hair, a perfect dancer body and was kind, and shy.
The party...well, was kind of lame. So me and my best friend went out to find more people to come...leaving Freddie and KB alone at my house. When we returned Freddie and KB were nowhere to be found. I waited and waited and by the time he returned...i was kind of upset. He told me he walked KB home and the rest is history. He and KB started dating.
I kicked him out and commenced to playing this song...Let's Straighten It Out, over and over again. I'm laughing now, because this was all my fault.
Lesson Learned : Never invite a pretty woman or girl to your house and leave her with your intended man or boy.
