sent my Baby to the window to buy ice cream on her own while I kept watch from the car directly across from where she was standing. Some guys came up next to her, greeted her politely, and stood patiently. One began engaging her in light conversation. I saw in her body language that she was getting nervous and was on my way to stand with her when this super fly Sista with a fade, sundress, and dragon wing tattooed backpiece came out of nowhere and said,
"Heeeeeey, Little Sis! It's a good day for ice cream, huh?", then placed herself between my daughter and the guy.
All of Zo''s tension melted away. Supa Sista stayed with her until she got her cone and walked her back to my car where she winked at me before saying, "She did fine, Mama. We're all watching." She motioned over to her own car and there were four Sistas outside of it, all grinning and giving me the thumbs up.
think that says a lot about how angels work. How the village works. How Black Women work.
We out here. Holy and fabulous and ready to ride out at any time, even at the ice cream shop.
Can we take a moment to talk about the sweetness of the errand friend hang?
The errand hang - where you hit your homie up to accompany you while you tend to the tasks that come with adulting - the grocery run, getting a pair of pants tailored, helping you pick a new bedframe, etc. The errand hang dismisses the usual setting of a bar or a lunch. It waves off the expected script of: "give me the summarized updates on your life and then I'll give you the sum on mine."
Instead, the errand hang dances in the sweet vulnerability that comes from the everyday. The errand hang sings: "ok I'm a human and you're a human and we're going to take an intimate walk through this seemingly ordinary part of my life, but if you look closely, this moment will reveal something delightfully specific and illuminating to what makes me - me, and I want to share that with you because quite frankly - I just like your company, and even in the silence (sometimes especially in the silence) it makes me feel somewhere between warm and content to have vou here beside me."
