I’ve recently been sort of gushing about my over 20 year friendship with the above subject — rapper KMD. We met years ago when I was a DJ at the local community station, WRFG, 89.3 FM. We had a brief, but intimate love affair which lasted about two years (probably 6 months in 20-something time). He told me everything. I listened. From that point on, he has sent messages to me on my birthday every year. At first through email, then through Facebook.
My last bday was about five days ago. I recently read my IMs on FB and there it was; a bday message from KMD.
I screenshotted it and sent it to my BF. He responded kindly. Then I wondered why I’d sent it to him. Did I want to make him jealous to know that a rapper from the 80s still thinks about me? Was I just sharing the giggle and slight joy that the communication brought? I don’t know. Either way, it is fun to have someone who wishes me a happy birthday every year who once mesmerized me with his super honesty.
