NAACP IMAGE AWARD IN L. A. - I'm going to be on the red carpet!

I'm going to be strutting down the red carpet! I'm going to be strutting down the red carpet!

I'm nominated for a 2005 NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Literary Work - Fiction, but there's really not much of a chance I'll win. I'm up against Eric Jerome Dickey, Aaron MacGruder, Alice Walker and Bishop T. D. Jakes. Shoot . . . I'm really and honestly honored just to be nominated! Look at the company I'm in.

Wow! I've known about this for more than a month now, but I finally - finally! - know what I'm going to wear on the red carpet. I've decided on a lightly beaded red satin dress. Cheryl Ann Wadlington, a well-known fashion consultant here in Philadelphia, went shopping with me for my accessories. Boy, did Cheryl hook me up! I would never DARE buy what she had me buy if I had went shopping on my own. Three inch stilletto heels (I normally wear no heel at all), and a beautiful silk shawl with gradations from deep red to shocking pink. Wow . . . me wearing shocking pink! No necklace, but we bought pink tear drop earrings, and a red/pink flower for my hair. I have shoulder-length dreadlocks, but Cheryl instructed me to wear me to my hair up for the event. Since I have absolutely no fashion sense, I'm following her advice as if it were the gospel. Can I share something rather embarrassing? Here I am almost 47-years-old and I didn't even know I've been wearing the wrong bra size until I went shopping with Cheryl. All this time I thought I was a C cup . . . come to find out I'm a D. I couldn't believe it! Not only are my boobs more comfortable, but I look better in my dress. Thank God for Cheryl Wadlington!

Oooh, I'm going to look good on the red carpet!

My beautiful daughter, Camille (she's 17-years-old) is my escort for the evening, and an author friend of mine, Daaimah S. Poole, is coming along for support as well as Meosha Coleman, a writer whose first book will be published sometime next year.

I know we're going to have a ball.

I'm going to be on the red carpet!
