G--- I'm here

?--- I forgot about your punctual nature I will be there at 3....

Mary called

M --- GloZell where are you and who are you meeting?

G--- I'm at the Farmers Market and I don't know who I'm meeting... it's someone I know... they know that I'm always on time

M--- Call me at 4 so I know you are alive but I feel better knowing that you are at a public place

G--- Okay

3 o'clock came... I started to get nervous...

then he walked in...

"Bixel" ---- GloZell I couldn't wait to see you...

G--- Bixel... I haven't seen you in ... in 3 years...

Bixel -- I got my movie done G ( he always called me G)
G ---- That's... great...

Bixel ---- I lost everything G... no apartment, the restaurant, my car .

G--- I see ... now you have your story for Oprah... your Tyler Perry I was homeless story... (do a documentary on yourself)

Bixel --- I'm still working hard on getting my movie out there...

G--- okay

Bixel --- When I start with the restaurant again... I can start paying people back... paying you back... thanks for investing... I really wanted you to see I got it done

G--- I'm glad you did... but even more than paying me back.... it was that I gave you money for your movie ( I was teaching then)... you said you would repay is 6 months... it's been three years ....

Bixel ---- I was too busy to give you what you wanted ...

G--- A phone call... a text ... you are real good at texting now

B ---- You are the one G... I could have my base in Orlando so I can have someone to come home to and your mother could help take care of our kids... I love you and you the one G

G --- The last time I saw you was at your restaurant party with your "Real" investors... you didn't invite me your partner did... I went to get seconds and ... you had someone come up and tell me ... you don't like your women big and put the food down... in front of everyone... and I put the plate down...

held it together... finished the party... I had one of my students come because she loved the Fugees ( one of the members is the lead in the movie... but has sued him... it's all good now)
B --- G...

G--- No... no wait... how about when you called and said you made me lunch.... I drive over thinking wow I wonder what it could be with you owning a restaurant and all .... and it was a bag of carrots

my car wasn't fancy enough, my place wasn't good enough, I was too fat...

and now I'm the one....

B --- I'm the same guy that you wanted ...

G --- I hope that you are not.... I saw a guy who was passionate about his movie and his restaurant... a African American man... who hasn't been to jail, and finished College and owned his own business... trying to make it... no kids... hasn't been married... you are what I was suppose to want...

I was the one you could call to go get this faxed and take this here and there while you were in New York... pick you up... take you to the airport.... what ever I could do to support you... a Black Man trying to make it... I did

I sang at your function... remember... you didn't even talk to me... I help clear the dishes... and you left...

So... Orlando?... how's your family

Bixel --- Let's not talk about them...

G --- Don't treat you the same now huh...

Look... you had to loose everything... and you are becoming a better man because of it...

If you had called and said " I am trying to pay you back... but I can't right now... but I want you to know what's going on with the project" ... something Bixel

How mad... how stupid can someone feel and stick around... the party was the last straw...

Bixel --- G ... you are a great person... and we can be together now... in Orlando... I'm 38 ... no kids...

G --- I have a boyfriend ( you didn't even ask... ) ... it's crazy... but SK seems to like me now... not over a course of years... not after he has lost everything... now

SK doesn't have much... and soon he will have less( am I stupid?)... but he treats me better than anyone else... (nope not stupid)

I wish you well... and things will turn around for you... clearly you had to see who was real in your life ...

Bixel --- Here is a copy of the movie, a Tee Shirt, and a flyer... I would like to watch the movie together ... it's a real good movie G
G --- Where you want to watch it?... I still live off Crenshaw in the hood... Oh I know the movie is good.. I invested in it....Thank you ... I will watch it... by myself ...

Bixel --- I hope you still... can believe in me G

G --- I do... you will be fine... learn your lesson... it will turn around...thank you bye
(I'm glad I'm fat right now... HA!)


I call Mary...
G --- Mary... you wouldn't believe what happened today... remember the guy I said owed me money.....
(There's some back story for you Sus)...

Pras Michel, founder and member of the Grammy award winning hip-hop trio, The Fugees, visited Yale for a screening of his groundbreaking documentary, Skid Row. In the film, Michel trades his glamorous life for the street and goes under cover as a homeless person for 9 days. The event was co-sponsored by Operation First Night (OPFN) and Yale’s Homeless and Hunger Awareness Action Project (YHHAP). Both organizations were established to mobilize young people against homelessness.The idea, was originally pitched to him by a friend during a game of Scrabble and Pras was not the intended star. He signed on to the project as a producer. “Basically, no one else wanted to do it,” he explains. “Everyone else backed out”.
