The Party is Over | Chicago Ideas Week

Y’all. Today, we ended up at an event that we technically weren’t supposed to be attending because of a change in venue…

After a great set of Chicago Ideas Week discussions, I gave Michael Eric Dyson my business card. He basically asks what I do and starts cracking jokes about how I’m too young to be teaching teens.

I turn around to our moderator, Jamil Smith, standing behind me and smacked him on the arm like “bruh, why isn’t your book on the table?” We laughed and he said thanks for lighting the fire under his butt to finish his book proposal.

…Kinda reminds me of the time I met Doug E. Fresh when I was leaving O’Hare, but I digress…

Oh, AND, I got to make essential oils in a trauma training this afternoon.

Somebody cue “Today Was a Good Day” for me, please.

Just sharing.
