As I continue my social studies as a ROAD-ologist, my next area of concentration is tailgating. Aside from being against the law, it should be a sin! But, I have vowed to dig deeper, so here it is: people that tailgate have abandonment issues, yeah you read right. These are the people that didn’t get many hugs in childhood and are severely afraid of being left. Because of this, many of us sometimes feel like there is someone in our backseat. There isn’t anyone back there, but these people really wish they could be. So just look in your rear view mirror and mouth sternly , “Back the EFF OFF Douche Bag” and they will because they’re so damn close that they won’t miss a word!
Everyone that knows my comedy understands how it is deeply rooted in truth and based on my life. I have SEVERE ROAD RAGE and was having a tough time maturely reconciling this consuming anger that drives me to want to get out of my car and confiscate a stranger’s keys. I have come to a place where I might have found some semblance of solution. I am seeking the deeper meaning for why idiotic drivers do what they do, I have become a Road-ologist; one who makes psychological assessments of the driving impaired.
I’ll start with this, those that like to switch lanes without the proper signal are reckless in nature and hazardous to your health. These are the people that don’t like to use condoms, if you’re dating one go get yourself tested at once!

Tonight Thursday, July 11 and tomorrow Friday July 12th I will be performing LIVE at the Chicago Laugh Factory for the Chuy Bravo’s Mustache Tour. Get your tickets now, come out and have a good time and pick up your “Who Does This B*tch Think She Is?” tee. I can’t wait to meet you.
“To laugh often and much; to win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children; to earn the appreciation of honest critics and to endure the betrayal of false friends. To appreciate beauty; to find the best in others; to leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child, a garden patch, or a redeemed social condition; to know that even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to have succeeded.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
Hating is trending! There is a culture that approves of and endorses the act of telling others that there is something wrong with them, as if, there isn’t something wrong with all of us. I too have been guilty of it and as I look back of some of my old comedy clips, I feel sorry for myself for falling into the trap, I know better. Now that I am on the receiving end of this lashing, I understand that no matter who you are, it doesn’t feel good.
Anyway allow me to proceed, without sounding preachy, that is so not the goal. I am now encountering those that are offended by my confidence, self- assurance and downright feeling good about myself. I want to send the message that I will not be moved and I want to welcome you all to do the same. So tired of hearing: “She thinks she’s cute”, “He thinks he’s all that”, and the infamous “Who Does She Think She Is?”
I’m gonna tell you who she is. She is someone that has been through things that not even a Tyler Perry movie could put nicely. So excuse me for still feeling good enough to fight another day and for feeling better about myself today than I did yesterday after surviving some of the most atrocious things you couldn’t even imagine.
I have created a line of shirts to address it, please don’t be offended by the word BITCH, I have chosen to empower it. I once heard someone making it an acronym for Being In Total Control of Herself,I loved it and so that is what it means to me.
If you were wondering what these shirts are about, I want you to know that I have dedicated them to those that get so flustered when I walk into a room choosing to wear my smile and good will as opposed to being bitter because I have endured.
DEDICATED TO THOSE OFFENDED BY OUR AUDACITY TO BE FABULOUS!
