Telephone lover...............

Three months ago I took the new phone plan offered by TSTT (local phone company) because it offered unlimited local calling and the hours of calling i used to rack up with my girlfriend was embarassing i used to have to hide the phone bill from my husband sometimes it was so bad i would have to pay the bill in parts i used to say well i don't party every night or waste money so the phone is my one indulgence but since school has started i haven't even been able to make use of the free calls until today we set a record we started @10am my husband left to run some errands and he was back at 2pm and we were still talking I hung up not because we were done I was just so embarrased the time flew.

She had to change phones twice because they needed recharging today was a record and if you ask me what we talked about i don't know topics ran from husbands to kids to sex to masturbation to more sex i think its a thirty-something thing because we seem to talk about sex alot she lives just a 15min taxi ride from my house but today's weather was just about cosying up under the covers and kicking it with my girlfriend.

There is a controversy going on about my band Tribe apparently there was a section that had a size limitation you had to have a certain bust and waste size and there was an article in the Express newspaper where the author said that the band was discriminating against black women it came across as if black women cannot be the size it was 34C bra and 34 inch waist.The author Terry Joseph said:

"Well, to hell with Tribe and that condescending concession, as it is widely known that black women, particularly those who have borne children, aren't likely to meet these contrived standards. Tribe could just as well have said in the statement: "If you're plump or black or worse, both, forget coming here to register for "Nylon Pool'' or "Tale of Benguela'', because this is dainty mas and we only want persons of compatible description in these sections."



Tribe says the section has only 20 people thats a picture of the section and the mold to make the costume only goes up to one size the thing is I kinda agree that its hard for the band to discriminate because registration was online and you can't know what someone looks like if they register over the internet and I for one is a short dark skined overweight black woman and when I wanted my costume changed from a bikini to a whole suit the band leader could have told me well you have to wear a bikini take it or leave it but she was very accomodating I don't know what to think is it discrimination if they say they want women of a certain size playing in their band? and should I be supporting a band like that by playing with them? I have a lot of thinking to do its the first time in all my years of playing mas that i have ever heard of size limitation on a costume.

10-2 on the phone? Nice one. I would fall asleep before the 1st hour. Interesting topics too.. Boy it look like the people want small girls in the band - I don't think there is any denying that.

This is the first I have heard of a size limitation playing mas. Usually the bands are happy to get their money. I do not think it is discrimination against black people because last time I was in T&T (April 2005) I saw overweight Indians as well.

You wicked with the phone thing. That was one of my hobbies as a teenager. Marathon phon conversations. On the holiday I once sat on the phone from 8pm to 5am. The result is nowadays I get tired of phone conversations very quickly. All the fault of my youth.

I see some seriously obese women in some 2 piece costumes here in SVG that really unflattering.However,it still discriminatory.I used to live on the telephone but nowadays not anymore.

34C is big? since when?

still everybody cant do everything. if you are bigger than the prescribed size for that section i'm sure there is a section for you. it would be racism or sie-ism if they were keeping certain persons out of all sections of the band i think

lawd. the tribe thing is bringing pure controversy on some chat boards i'm on...i think the discrimination issue is also in the PRICE of that costume with it's Swarovski Crystals and all. i say whoever could afford to pay that steep price for the section should be able to wear it.

sounds like discrimination, but on de same hand it's dem band and dey got de right to say who dem want and what qualifications. de thing is dat the women got de right to say whether dem want to patronize de band or not. If yuh nuh like wha dem asking, just join another band.
