Scott: “what’s the name of your new blog?”
Me: “Essential Oils Gangsta”
Scott: Through a lot of laughter “Are you oilers secretly doing illegal shit?”
Me: “of course not, not all gangsters do illegal stuff, and Gangstas don’t either. Especially not Essential oil Gangstas”
Scott: “Why would you name it that”
Me:”hmm, well because I belong to a group of people with a mindset that using oils to promote physical and emotional health is a good thing”
Scott: “why didn’t you call it a club then?
Me: “well because the word Gangsta brings to mind people going against the grain, and I think that going to natural alternatives first, challenging the way americans have been living and eating chemicals, and focusing on mental health, is going agains the grain, but in a good way.
Soo then I decided to look up the word gangsta, which in most dictionaries is defined using the words criminal or criminal activity along with mobster. In some cases I was right though, and it is a mindset or belief among a group of people. So I was sort of right, and please don’t inform him that he was too. However just for the record, i’m not doing anything illegal, it is too late to change it now, besides I like it and now you can too. Here is where you can get your essential oil gangsta gear.
