Life is a boomerang...it's funny how that is...

I sit here and I just can't help but giggle to myself on how funny life can be. Things really do come full circle sometimes. It's almost uncanny how that is, to be honest.
So I sign in to my facebook and I have a private message. Usually it's my girl who sends me these , sometimes it's just to say hi and sometimes it's business (she's the one who has the magical talent in getting in contact with quite a few famous folks). So I check it, and it's a girl, but not my girl LOL.
I had worked with this girl about 6-7 years ago, back when I was working retail in the mall. She's workin' at some advertising or PR firm and had thanked me for checkin' out the link she sent me. I had clicked 'like', I support anybody and everybody, I thought nothing of it really. So anyway she's telling me all about how she knows some other folks in the state who have their own clothing brand and printing services and I guess sort of refers me to them or trying to get me to work with them I suppose. Funny part is, she names a name that I am all too familiar with. I'm thinkin' to myself this guy is STILL trying to bring back that old and dusty clothing line. Not going to lie, I gave a nice arrogant chuckle when I read that. I mean this is the dude who wanted me to be a part of this brand, that had a lot of local success and he let the damn thing die out and be forgotten. I'm thinkin' to myself I'm only a year in and I'm kickin' your brand's ass already, and this is just the beginning!
I'm not a spiteful guy, I mean truth be told, I'd still like to help him, I just wouldn't be a part of his operation like I had once was or wanted to be. We both have a passion for our city and Football team, it's only logical if we could put our heads together and really blow things up in the apparel biz. But I know it won't happen, and I sure as hell am not lettin' this fool on my team, he's a known snake, but I also think he's misunderstood though. I truly would like to help him get on the straight path though.
It's just funny how he's still struggling to get back on track, when it's so easy. Granted you won't make a million the first week,month,year (like he wants to) but it's really easy to get the wheels rollin'. But I suppose it was a bit easier for me than him because I am doing virtually everything myself. He's just a lazy dude, how have I forgotten about that. He used everyone around him for their talents and then just moved on without them. Stole some of the artists' work. He's never done anything for himself, except pitch the whole spiel on what he wants to do with his brand and how big it's going to be. I guess one of the artists was right when he told me he did me a favor by flaking out on me. Look how the table turned. He needs a designer now, desperately. I am just enjoying watching him hang to dry ha ha...
