relocating for your mate…

a recent misplaced afternoon nap left me wide awake a few nights ago at a time when all of the acceptable nighttime activities had shutdown for the evening…boredom beset me like a pack of wild hounds on a bloody fox…so i did what any self respecting african american male would do in this situation…and no it did not consist of a quick jaunt to the ta-ta o-rama…i would’ve had to put on pants for that…

i actually blew the dust off of the cinematic classic menace to society…

yes menace to society, the epic tale of a caine who is faced with the day to day challenges of a rim stealing, crack dealing cat in south central la…as you may recall…as the story drew close to its conclusion, our protagonist, caine was faced with the decision of whether or not to relocate with ronnie, the lady friend he had acquired from his imprisoned mentor…

this turn of events led me to wonder when is it actually ok to relocate with or for another person…obviously if you have the opportunity to live with the pre will smith jada pinkett, this a no brainer…if your name is also the nickname of the only product you sell, it is safe to say that you probably aren’t giving up much with the move…but what about those of us non-brick moving types…well i’m glad you asked (recognizing, of course, that you did not)…

– one of you is with child…in this case, it will most likely be the woman…trust me…but the 2 of you now have to decide between daddy facetime the app or the preferred real life version…statisticians would say you should probably choose the latter…street pimps and stip club patrons might actually put the ipad in layaway for you…

– the job just made it easy…this situation actually removes one of the largest barriers…if your day time gig puts you in a position where you can get the shacking lifestyle you so crave without having to sacrifice that bi-weekly gift from the direct deposit gods it might be ok to go ahead and make the leap…

– you’re already unemployed…in a slight variation to the rule above, being completely abandoned by those d-d gods, might leave you gary coleman on the income side, but you’re actually emmanuel lewis when it comes to risk…assuming arnold was actually taller than webster…there’s no better time to discover your mates living quarters than when you are about to be evicted from yours…

– the reward far outweigh the risk…in the fairy tale-est of the scenarios, this one really relies on your ‘’L” word meter to make the determination…being somewhat unfamiliar with that machine means that i can’t necessarily tell you all the signs that you are making the right decision…but i can say that one pretty clear sign that you might be getting the green light for your u-haul is if the ring has already been purchased…but even then there is still risk…but at least then you can write a decent love song about it…

obviously re-scrambling the digits in your zip code for another person is something that should not be taken lightly…like all of our post, we feel that by utilizing the list above you can avoid at least a portion of the ridicule that can arise when folks decide to make this move for a reason not mentioned above…so yeah…don’t say we didn’t warn you…

elrock…do you care if you live or die…
