I'm really close to my sisters and I honestly don't know what I'll do without them. It's Prim-not's birthday today and I decided to do this for her. It's SingleNigerian Man's birthday too so here's a shout out to them both.
Prim-not and I attended the same schools and the first time we were apart for long was her NYSC service year. I pretended not to miss her much but I did. I was used to the squabbles, fights, shouting and laughter. I love her. Not sure I’ve told her that seriously before…oh wait, I have and she asked “shon dagbere ni?” (Meaning: was I was saying my final farewell!) Yea, she’s crazy like that. She loves me too. At least I think so. She must really love me because I know I showed her a lot! See, I was not the easiest child to live with. Naughty was sort of my middle name. Plus my idea of interesting/fun wasn't hers.
Did I already say I love her to bits? Yea, I do. Forever and a day. When I was absolutely with no brain (ok, I always had but you would never have guessed it for the kind of stuff I did lol) she was there, pushing me harder and harder and I hated her for it. She has always been my voice of reason. I remember we still talked about this a few months ago and we had a good time laughing about my foolishness.
She is my number one fan. She cheers me up and when I have those little bouts of issues, she's there to straighten me up and she never fails to let me know that I'm doing awesomely. When I become my harshest critic, she reminds me that I am enough and I need not be so hard on myself. She is aware of all my flaws and she still thinks I'm amazing. She believes I can take on the world without batting an eyelid. See confidence. You want to try to quantify that love? You can't. With that support system, you know you can take on anything. She knows me and loves me. Simple.
I look at her and I see the person I want to be when I grow up (despite d fact that we are only a few months apart…ok, maybe more than that but who’s counting? *tongue out*) Anyway, with her by my side, I know I’ll always be alright. Please say a little prayer for her as you read this.
On a last note, if by any chance Prim-not reads this, I shall deny this post even if it has my signature on it or my name plastered all over it. I shall vehemently deny.
P.S: So I finally met Honeydame and we had an amazeballs time *azonto* I”ll be back with more gist. *wink*
Merry Christmas beautiful people
