Friday night was a pretty interesting night. Myself and 3 other buppie women were trying to go out. Usually me and my homegirls are strait DC girls. We enjoy the city and the buppie crowds that it attracts. We do not do big Clubs i.e Love or a H2O often.We'll I tend to not want to because the crowd is just not my scene and Lines suck! Plus I am not in the mood to be putting on my prom dress to make the dress code at some of these clubs. So we stay at special buppie events here and there in the city.. and we like to be versatile. I enjoy seeing many new spots throughout the city. So this night was no different. Wanted to go somewhere new.
One of the places we heard it was popping was the good old Ward 9 bka PG County. Now all of us grew up in the county, but for someone reason we are hate partying there! For one it seems like always a freaking high school reunion! The men wear these local designers hoodies and sneakers, and worst of all Nike Boots. Now this style may have been cool if I was in high school, but I am not. I wasn't thinking it was going to be that bad, but were were also venturing to a part of town were 3 people were shot 3 weeks ago. (WARD 9) However, this night I was curious to see what this new bar had to offer.
So, as heterosexual buppie women we enjoy they shop at Express for Men or can put on a sweater nice shoes, slacks, ties, blazers (in season please). At the same time, we don't want any homo thugs!
Of course we saw the nike boots but not in plentiful amounts as I expected. Nonetheless, the crowd was not to our taste.
What amazes me is this attitude we have. Bourgeoisie. Sometimes I find myself judging books by its cover, and I try to stop myself because we should not do that! but its hard. I tend to like pretty covers, well put together things. I watch how I come over and what I say and do, because I do not want to be seen as less than the buppie I am...
Day two of the weekend my homegirl and I hit another DC spot. She never went there before, and although each time i go I have fun I knew the crowd was going to me more....PG County... and it was.
Previous to entering we were discussing our lifestyles in the people who have come and gone.. a key quote she said was "A girl with no college education who works at burger king, would not be hanging with us"
We percede to enter the Ward 9 club, men with nike boots, lil wayne look alikes, etc. etc.
Back to Burger King
Dayumn. Kinda of Harsh right? No Nike boots... no burger king workers?? But its real. This is how we think!
If you are not well together packaged, then eff you!.. This attitude that some bups have is craaazy!
I still think about this and some will say 20 somethings are ruthless but we really are! I find myself being cut throat to the people that are around me, the places I am seen at, and the type of men I am attracted to... with all these restrictions or standards... am I living life?
Sometimes I feel I am missing alot because my true circle of friends and network seems to have dwindled.
What am I missing because I can't do Nike Boots and Burgerkings?
