National Side Chick Day

Someone posted on Facebook, that Friday was National Side Chick Day. When I read that, I couldn’t help but snickle. Why? Because I use to be one. I played the side piece to many a married man. I was even the side, side piece. That’s when you play your position next to the married man, his wife and his main chick. Yeah, your girl was ‘bout that life’. But after 18 years of going hard for someone else’s man and playing the role of the Supportive Side Piece, I soon grew tired of playing my part.
