I was on the subway the other day, when the most beautiful woman I have ever seen walked on. Now I’m not one of those every black woman is a queen brothas, but I swear the way she walked with her head up high, her style and grace, her jewellery, her clothes and her dreadlocks wrapped up into a bun she genuinely looked like a queen, she sat opposite me but didn’t notice me, which I was glad about because I couldn’t stop staring at her, and pulled out her tablet. Now I’m looking up, asking God for her to get off at my stop and like a miracle we get to my stop and she gets up. Yes I think and thank the heavens. In the corner of the carriage there was a white couple making out. I decide ‘I’m just gonna compliment the woman and keep it moving’. So I look at her and truthfully tell her she’s the most beautiful woman I’ve ever seen, ‘corny as hell I know, but it was true’ she smiled and gracefully said “thank you” though I could see she was glowing. I looked up to saw the white couple just looking at me in shock. The carriage doors opened and I was on my way. I thought to myself ‘yes that’s what we do as black men we compliment our women’. About a week later I saw her again, she smiled at me and this time she came over and spoke to me. She’s now my wife and I’m the happiest man alive. True story.
