Why Did I Get Pancakes Too?

By January 27th, 2021No Comments

Several hours after posting this, I got a call from my mother-in-law- a dedicated CurlyNikki reader- to inform me that Richard was in town to attend an event at her church… down the street from the IHOP. Mystery solved! Still tho, lol.  

Why Did I Get Pancakes Too?

Hubby and I were up late on account of the jet lag and found ourselves wide awake and a bit famished at a disrespectful hour.  So we snuck out of my mom’s house like teenagers around 1:30 this morning to go for pancakes, of course. Now this is where ish gets interesting.

That blurry and quite unremarkable pic above is only significant because one of those shiny bald heads belongs to none other than Richard T. Jones from Tyler Perry’s, Why Did I Get Married. You know, the one who had the gall to make Jill Scott find her own way to the couple’s retreat.


I had so many questions.  Like, why was dude in Hazelwood? In the Lou? In a 3 piece suit? With a slew of peeps in their Sunday’s best? At IHOP? At 2AM?!!! There were so many church ladies…

I started to get up and ask them what the haps was, get a pic… the requisite.  But the intimidating gentleman standing near him, with the bungee earpiece in a slightly less fancy suit, carrying what appeared to be the official doggy bag, deterred me. I decided y’all would just have take my word for it.  Seriously tho, I can’t make this ish up.

In my mind, I imagined that they were sitting over there arguing over the last pancake like he was still in The Wood.  While hubby speculated that he requires ’round the clock security because folks are still mad about what he did to Jill Scott.

At any rate,  I suppose there’s a blog post somewhere with a shot of the back of my curly head asking why in the entire hell I was at Ihop at 2am too… but at least I didn’t have on a 3 piece suit.

Later Gators,
