OG or Original Gangster is a term used these day as a nod to or a sign of respect for someone who has been around for a while (as in old).
A group of ladies, including me, was sitting around a table at a church breakfast gathering. As a younger woman walked by, she called out, “A table of OGs”
Some of the other ladies laughed. I did not. I can’t remember my response but it was something to the tune of “Seriously?”
Listen, I don’t mind my age.
What I do mind is assumptions made about me because of my age.
American hates aging; the older you get, the greater the depreciation when it comes to your value and place. Here’s the thing; unless one dies young, he or she will get old! I just wish I could be around when all those young and energetic people turn old and ignored!
Don’t play with me. This OG just might show you how it’s reallly done and take no prisoners in the doing!
