Earlier this evening I went to the movies, as I usually do on Wednesdays, but first I stopped at Ebeano supermarket in Lekki Phase 1 to buy the popcorn. Have you guys eaten that popcorn? It's heavenly! Since that night I slept over at Henri's house and she offered me the popcorn and said "this is the best popcorn in lekki", I've been hooked. So it's my ritual now, no matter how late I'm running for my movie I must first grab this popcorn.
And while I waited on the queue I met the MAN OF MY DREAMS. I kid you not.This guy is.... Damn! (You know that feeling you get when you see in human form the man you've always imagined/envisaged/envisioned/visualized yourself with in your daydreams...). I sighted him from afar, getting closer, I took in his watch, a Piaget btw, his belt and his polo T shirt. He's tall and lanky, with a very cute face and thick glasses. He's a geek, a very sexy one. I eavesdropped on his phone call and my people he made one statement that made me instantly fall in love.
"Ok, no wahala, just let me know before Saturday and I'll get my boat ready".
His boat?! Oh boy! I was hooked. What I really liked about him was that he's very understated, you know, the shy, awkward type that's very cute and obviously a (rich) genius. Somehow this guy and I got talking while he waited for his shawarma and I waited for my popcorn. We exchanged names, personal details; occupations, places of residence etc, he complained about how he was very jetlagged from so much travel and how he needed some sleep, we joked about how great the popcorn and shawarma are, so much so that he was running late for a meeting but he just had to have this first.
Then his shawarma was ready so he crossed over to his queue to go get it and while he did, I could see me on his boat, my 22" Peruvian hair flying wildly in the wind, while he stood behind me, dropping light kisses on my neck, wrapping those skinny arms around my waist, whispering sweet nothings into my ears.... And the next thing I know, he collects his shawarma, waves at me and walks away. Without collecting my number?! Jesos! I wanted to run after him and scream "Wait, wait o! you forgot something!" But I couldn't. The disappointment rendered my legs and mouth useless.
Please if you know any guy in his early-mid 30s, who's name starts with D, who's parents are from two of the major Nigerian tribes, who has a boat and lives in lekki phase 1, who works in the oil and gas sector, please tell him that I'm waiting for him to come back and put the pieces of my heart back together. I'm serious o! I will name our first child after whoever makes my dream come true.
So on to the movie, if you haven't seen the movie; After Last Night please go and see it, especially if like me, you love love and laughter. Kevin Hart is a phooooooool! LOL. That guy is comedy personified. And Micheal Ealy, with his caramel complexion and dreamy eyes that remind you of the ocean just keeps your heart beating fast. It's a very nice, funny, romantic movie and I recommend it for everyone, male and female.
So I'm in bed and I can't stop thinking about D. *Sobs*.
Good night good people.
