so jussie smollett is back to work.
he had a recent concert at the troubadour in la,
where he addressed his injuries and still put on a show…
when i slip and fell in my tub last year,
i landed on my ribs.
it was in the morning before work too.
it knocked the wind right out of me that i thought i was gonna die.
i immediantely rose up out the tub.
i remember crying like an entire bitch as i walked around in a circle.
i was still able to get to work,
but i was in so much pain.
i could not fuckin’ turn my body for the life of me.
not only that,
i had bad swelling that had me looking bad bodied.
it was an entire mess.
i didn’t have health insurance at the time,
but i was told from numerous folks that i may have brusied my ribs.
they told me it would take weeks to heal,
which it did.
jussie may not have experienced what i did because he’s dancing.
i had hell walking,
and wearing my bag.
i don’t even remember how i got through that shit.
i woulda cancelled everything and been on bed rest until spring.
it’s good to see jussie not letting it get the best of him.
his quote from that night tho:
“And above all, I fought the (expletive) back,” he said to cheers.
Then he paused and said, emphatically but with a laugh, “I’m the gay Tupac.”
pac took a few bullets before he met his demise.
don’t say that again.
i can feel my own roots being ripped out by that dragging.
lowkey: funky dineva ain’t fuckin with the black gays who don’t believe jussie…
