“Reflections of A Woman’s Indiscretions“
This book is dedicated to my mother Elena, grandmothers Josephine & Evril, & to all the Ladies in my life – Strong women I have seen Prevail no matter the circumstances or challenges.
Today was my cousin Christine’s 21st birthday. Slimm, myself, my friend Ori, my sister Ashley, Jimmy (Slimm’s homeboy) and his wife Laura, all decided to celebrate her birthday at Jillian’s–a bowling alley and bar/lounge in Hollywood. And when we arrived, all fun broke loose.
Rapper 50 Cent’s song, “Just a Lil Bit” was bumping through the loud speakers and Ori and I were just dancing, while Slimm and his boy were conversing; Ashley, Christine, and Laura were at the bar. All of us were just having a good time: the drinks kept coming; we owned a couple of shots; we bowled; and we talked shit. It was a fun night. After a couple hours, we were lit and decided to call it a night–but without grabbing some food first.
We exited the back door because upstairs was too loud and obnoxious. And once we did, I came across a long series of stairs that was directed towards the floor. While I was proceeding down the stairs, I suddenly tripped and lost my balance. But just when I was about to bite it on the stairs, Slimm reached out and grabbed me by his strong arm. I then started to crack up jokingly; I was faded, tipsy, and laughing. All of us were happy drunks , but that would soon change.
Once we made it to the cars, Slimm and Ashley took the steering wheels for the night: Laura, Jimmy, and I rolled with Slimm, while Christine and Ori rode with Ashley. Once my group got into our car, we waited for Ashley because she needed to follow us to the restaurant; we were waiting at southbound of Caheunga Blvd. Once we saw her car move toward us (with her headlights off), without a moment’s notice, the police swooped up right behind her their flashing lights–they pulled her over for making a left onto a residential street.
“Ah shit! They’re pullin’ her over cause her lights was off,” Slimm said as he got out of the car to see what was going on.
We followed Slimm around the corner where my sister was detained. She was out of the car along with Christine and Ori who were standing on the sidewalk with worried expressions on their faces. “If only she remembered to put her lights on,“ were my thoughts–especially after she failed the field sobriety test. Reflecting back, maybe this whole ordeal was to prevent something bad from happening.But when the officer put his handcuffs on my sister Ashley, I then became belligerent.
I turned to Slimm and said, “Please talk to them! Get my sister out of this!”
Clearly I was intoxicated–“What could Slimm do to help Ashley?” All I knew was that he had a good mouth piece, and he could always get out of complicated situations. So I thought (in my drunken state) he could get my sister released. But then the officer put my sister in the back seat of the police car.
Crying, I screamed at Slimm: “You’re no help!”
I knew that he wouldn’t hit me with the law standing right there in his face, but the look in his eyes was so obvious, even to his boy Jimmy. Jimmy quickly intervened and said, “Man, she’s drunk, just let her talk.”
Slimm turned and walked away from me; he went to the police officer to talk about my sister’s car. In the end, the police decided not to impound Ashley’s car, but they still took Ashley into custody. We waited for her boyfriend to pick up her car, and at that point Christine left with him and Ori left with us.
The drive home was silent. No one said a word and I was knocked out instantly. I woke up at Del Taco’s drive-thru just as our order was ready. Slimm handed me the bag of food, but I was still drunk and pissed off at him. So I belligerently took the food out of the bag, and threw it in his face. Ori, who was sitting in the back seat, watched silently with unbelief. Slimm didn’t make a move and he continued to drive.
*For the record, that really isn’t my style. I consider myself a sweetheart; and someone who loves hard. But with experience I’ve learned when someone hurts my heart regularly, and makes it hard, I can be a mean bitch. For the first time I realized that I was adopting Slimm’s behavior. Back then I didn’t know it, but when people or relationships start to bring you out of character in a negative way, it’s probably a sign to let go. Love is supposed to bring out good qualities, not ugly ones. When you start misbehaving like the person you are with then it’s all bad. No one wins…it’s a lose-lose situation.
He pulled up on Don Lorenzo Drive where my car was parked. Ori jumped out of the rental truck and thanked him for the ride.
Me, I didn’t say a word. I jumped down from the truck and proceeded to walk to my car. Then out out of nowhere, I felt a swift kick of a size 12 foot shoe to my ass and I immediately fell to the ground on my behind; I broke my heel from my boot in the process. I was speechless. I had no idea that Slimm was right behind me when he did this to me. Slimm then rushed back to his truck, got in, and sped away.
Ori ran over saying, “Oh my god. Sharine, are you okay?” with concern in her voice.
“I’m alright,” I said, as I was fighting back my tears. I was angry–more than anything I was mortified. He knew how to humiliate me, that was certain.
Alcohol has the power to make a person bold and stupid – that’s what I know. I got up off of my ass and I limped to my car. With Ori as my passenger, I sped right behind him–flying down La Brea. I didn’t know what I was thinking or trying to prove but I was angry, embarrassed, and humiliated. But seriously, “What was I going to do, if I caught up with him?”
It was a blessing in disguise when I lost control of my car and ran into the curb just outside of Popeye’s Chicken. Lucky for me and Ori, it wasn’t through Popeye’s! Looking back at it now, I can shake my head and laugh. But right then and there it was far from amusing because I broke the right side suspension of my car. If I had lost control of my car, then I probably would have made a bad situation into a much worse situation.
As a result from this event, I lost my car for two weeks because of repairs. So I had no choice but to take public transportation to work, and depend on Blu to pick me up where I was slacking with the kids. I didn’t see or speak to Slimm for over a week and again I thought about our “good times,” which ultimately lead me to call him.
Our separation was short lived and another episode would be in the works sooner or later.
STAY TUNED NEXT WEEK TO READ ANOTHER THRILLING CHAPTER OF SHARINE’S NEW BOOK
ALL RIGHTS ARE RESERVED TO SHARINE JONES
- Saturday Book Read w/ Sharine Jones: Chapter 3 Confused and Delusional Contin. (princesdailyjournal.com)
Mr. Mike Lake was born in Melrose, MA. He graduated from Northeastern University in 2002 (being the first in his family to attend college) and is the first in Massachusetts history to complete five majors simultaneously: Finance, Political Science, Communications, Entrepreneurship and Management Information Systems. His education has not only allowed him to become President Bill Clinton’s special appointee in White House Operations, but a director of development for United Way of Massachusetts Bay and Merrimack Valley, where he raised a record-breaking $5.8 million to reduce family homelessness and poverty in Massachusetts.
In our interview, we discussed his initiatives for Massachusetts as the next Lieutenant Governor and his personal journey in life. Our biggest topic of discussion was the minimum wage in Massachusetts ($8.00) and how the average family in Massachusetts must work three full-time jobs to support themselves. We also discussed his embarrassing moment at the White House during the Clinton Administration.
Today he is the President and CEO of Leading Cities, and is working to fulfill “The Massachusetts Promise” as the next Lieutenant Governor in Massachusetts. He wishes to build a community where children can attend the best schools in the world, where friends and neighbors can live in cities and towns that have the resources to tackle modern challenges, and where individuals can find meaningful employment that sufficiently supports them and their families.

“Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the reign of King Herod. About that time some wise men from eastern lands arrived in Jerusalem, asking, “Where is the newborn king of the Jews? We saw his star as it rose, and we have come to worship him.” King Herod was deeply disturbed when he heard this, as was everyone in Jerusalem. He called a meeting of the leading priests and teachers of religious law and asked, “Where is the Messiah supposed to be born?” After this interview the wise men went their way. And the star they had seen in the east guided them to Bethlehem. It went ahead of them and stopped over the place where the child was. When they saw the star, they were filled with joy! They entered the house and saw the child with his mother, Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasure chests and gave him gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh.” (Matthew 2:1-4, 9-11 NLT)
On a cold and silent night, a King was born; along with a new star. This King was not born in a warm crib, inside beautiful palace, but in a manger; inside a wooden stable. When word spread of a Messiah to be born, three wise kings, shepherds, and even the animals flocked to him, to pay homage to the little boy King.
On that day, nobody knew what this little child would bring or give to mankind. All they knew was that this child, born of Mary, conceived by the Holy Spirit, and chosen from the Heavens, was meant to be worshiped and praised.
The birth of Jesus Christ brought a new light and a new idea to the world; that of peace and love [to love your neighbors as thine self and to love your enemies regardless of their faults]. In a world that saw countless murders and an injustice, God heard the people’s cries from Jerusalem and brought them a son to bring a new light and a new testament of God’s will on Earth.
So mark Christmas day as both the celebration of a King and a new testament from God. Love your fellow man and women (including the poor) and remember that material gifts can never substitute the everlasting gifts that are stored in Heaven. [Heaven that I like to believe as the new star that appeared on Jesus’ birth]
Merry Christmas to all and Bring peace on Earth and goodwill to all Man
“Glory to God, and on earth peace, toward men of good will” (Luke 2:14)
