I need to be a billionaire ASAP so I can afford to just lay on the sofa and watch the days pass by without a care in the world, without reminding myself that I need to get off the sofa and find ways to make me some money because I want my kids to attend some pretty expensive schools (if they school in Nigeria) and so that I can do whatever I want or whatever. Most days that's enough motivation to get me off sofa, today was not one of those days.
I slept off really late last night, actually I didn't sleep off till about 3.30am. I'm usually a late sleeper but last night I was on the phone for hours having a very curiously interesting conversation with a friend who was trying to figure out ways around this abstinence thingy; So if we date we can kiss and touch but no... not the main thing? So if we date and I do it with someone else do you think you think you'll have a right to be upset? So if we date how long till we do the main thing? I spent hours listening to a young man trying to navigate the murky waters of a sexless relationship. I spent hours solely for my amusement and entertainment, of course pointing out the flaw in his thinking; saying you strongly desire a relationship when all you want is sex, would have been a waste of time.
Anyhoo, we wrapped up the conversation and I finally got some sleep. A few hours later I got up to get ready for church, went to pick my friend up and we both headed out. Afterwards I dropped her off, came back home, got on the sofa and passed out till about 6pm. I woke up and I remember vaguely remembering I have a blog so I picked my ipad up but immediately a wave of indifference flooded over me and I was like I'm so not into this today. I dropped the ipad, picked up my phone and asked if *Mimi felt like ice cream. It was still tentative for me, plus my sofa never felt so good. But Mimi's enthusiasm got me off my butt. I got dressed, went to pick her up and off we went.
Then something occurred to me; I'd exceeded my budget for the week. Yes people, I'm trying to live within a budget and save more! Remember those children of mine have to go to expensive schools... So I called *Fred, knew he would be at his regularly spot in VI, told him I wanted to have dinner there and he asked me to come over. They do some really nice Italian food at the spot but that's not what I was there for, so I told Fred; I don't want food, just give me money, the cash equivalent (and some). I told him that my friend and I want to go some place and I've got no money to spend. Fred looked at the wristwatch on my wrist, Louis Vuitton bag I was holding and the jewelry I had on. Big girl like you; no money? He scoffed. (No need to tell him that everything I had on all belong to my sister who's not in town at the moment, so I'm in full borrow-pose mode. Shhhhhhhh). Well long story short, he wasn't with any cash or his token so he couldn't do an online transfer. He suggested we do an 'IOU'; I'll spend my money tonight and he'll refund me tomorrow. I know Fred's word is his bond so I hugged him and left.
Mimi I are headed to Cold Stone and I had my first ice cream in months. IT WAS NOT WORTH IT! Ice cream is supposed to make you feel happy. This one was just blehhhh. It made me feel sick and sad. That could have been guilt, but then again it could have been the fact that that was actually my breakfast...
Well I'm home now and back on the sofa. I know I'll be up for hours seeing as I spent the better part of the day sleeping. I'm still in that 'I'm so not into this today' mood but err, if that was how life was then I'd spend all day laying on the sofa looking at the ceiling, because I've already got billions and need not worry about my kids education. But unfortunately, that's not how life is.
So I had to get off my butt, get my ipad and type something out, even though I did not want to. Because that's life; inconveniencing yourself today for that which you want tomorrow.
And oh, if you read this through I already warned you; I cannot give you those 5 minutes of your life back.
