So I was in Lagos for Easter and I had informed my sister's neighbour that I would be coming. I even shamelessly chipped in that she should feel free to wake us all up with peppersoup (face-palm). Unluckily for me, she was too busy so nobody woke anybody with peppersoup *sigh*. This life is just somehow. She sha finally promised to deliver it to me #Winning
Let me quickly gist you guys before sharing the toasting story. Wait, y'all didn't think I was pregnant for reals, did you? That was just to get you here asap lool. Anyways, that was how one of my friends said she dreamt that she came visiting and saw I was preggies and I gisted her how it happened. I apparently told her we did it just once lmaoo. I also told her that my baby daddy was madly excited . I told her to please wake up. Me that I am Usain-Bolting from temptation. Alakoba.
Here's a quick shout-out to Kazini Daily who gave me the Sunshine award. It's been a while I did anything like that but I will get to it in due time. Thanks sweets. I appreciate.
So here is the gist I promised. Not the indecent proposal o. That is not ready for sharing yet but all in good time. I've shared some crazy proposal stories in the past so you can check here and here.
On that fateful day, my dad came to pick me from work and my sister (Prim) was in the car. My dad was driving and Prim was sitting in the passenger seat. I was famished. Not peckish feeling o, the real body-shaking, I'll-die-if-I-don't-eat-right-now, hypoglycemia hunger so we stopped to get something from a fast food. I wasn't waiting to get home before eating so I opened my pack and was unstylishly (yea, unstylishly) wolfing down my food. I was still grubbing and there was some traffic when I heard someone say "she's beautiful". I looked up briefly to see who was admiring my sister (because Prim is gorgeous) only to see a guy whose car was just beside ours point to me. Me bawo? With food in my mouth and looking very un-tush?
Anyways, my sister said thank you on my behalf. Not like I could have said anything with food in my mouth anyway (sorry for that visual) I smiled and continued grubbing but Mr. Admirer wasn't letting go easily. He kept staring and pointing at me saying "please tell her she's beautiful". See me feeling fly like iyen, emi naa? (meaning na me be this?) Next thing I saw, he shoved his phone at my sister. All these drama inside traffic o. Prim turned on this incredulous look like, erm, what's going on. She didn't take the phone and he dropped it on her lap. I briefly fiddled with the thought that my dad would drive off or something but he didn't. The guy apparently had some nerve, but my dad is kinda cool so he was just watching the drama unfold.
My dad pulled over and the guy got out of his car, apologised to my dad and asked for my number. I gave it and he called immediately. After satisfying himself, we drove off. My dad was just looking on amused. In fact, the only thing he said with a smile as we eventually drove off was "so this is how things are done now. Interesting".
I was flattered but the guy put a kibosh on our romance by suggesting I resembled one of his ex-es. I wasn't going to be some kind of replacement for anyone so I stonewalled and that was how that story ended. It was funny though because imagine someone giving a toast at the wedding recounting how we met lol. So yea, that was how it went. I have bumped into him about 3ce after that incident, usually in traffic lol.
All you hawt and smoking, drop-alive gorgeous ladies are trying though. So these are the kinds of things you people endure? I mean, I'm not scary looking or anything but I'm not like you know, stop-that-car-cos-I-have-to-get-her-number kind of person.
I actually have more gist but this post is getting long so till my next post, be good.
I'll be back
