I've met two of my Exs' mothers and one experience I will share when we have a most embarassing moments post. (I'm still cringing internally from that experience). The other experience was so cute.
The woman kept calling me
The woman kept calling me
Ndo-nwa and hugging me tightly. Then when he told her I'm from a neighbouring village she shrieked in delight and then it became Ndo nwa m, Omalicha m, my beautiful daughter... I felt so warm and mushy inside, I can never forget that moment. He later told me his mum really really liked me, unfortunately his mother's affection for me didn't stop his from waning soon after. But I digress...
So that moment you met your boo's mother, what was it like? Do tell!
Hey guys, so I've been MIA all day. Not my fault really. After an awesome time in God's presence this morning I got home and passed out. Woke up to find that both my cellular data and wifi had expired, I was only just able to top up.
So... After rousing myself from my unconsciousness I went to the movies to see 30 Days In Atlanta but I got there a few minutes late and then got a call to meet someone inside Phase 1 simultaneously. I left The Palms and headed to phase 1 and after the meet up I thought hey, let's go to Sweet Kiwi. Now I've never ever been a yoghurt fan but seeing as I'm trying to avoid Cold Stone and yoghurt is a much healthier alternative than ice cream, I came here. And here I sit, eating frozen yoghurt with chopped peanuts and granola and observing everything around me. I've seen a couple meet for the first time. A blind date!
She awkwardly said to him "I've never done this before" and he smiled warmly and led her to the yoghurt dispenser to serve herself. Turns out she's Miss Chatty and in a few seconds she's chatting to him like a long lost friend. They take their yoghurt and go sit in a corner.
I couldn't help wondering about these two stranger I may never see again. What does the figure hold for them? Is tonight the first and last time they'll ever see or is tonight the start of something magical for them? Hmmm.
Have you ever been on a blind date? You know, a date with someone you've never met before, someone you're meeting for the first time during the date? How did it go? Did you curse the person who set you guys up? Curse the fates for such a horrible date? Or thank the universe for allowing your paths to cross? Did it lead somewhere; fling, sex, relationship, marriage...? Do share.
A few minutes later a lady comes in with an older man and they begin to serve themselves. Then this other pretty light skinned chic comes in with a tall hottie and it turns out the lady with the older man knows him. She proceeds to hug him tight and introduce him to the older man who she addresses as her uncle. She then informs her uncle that he used to come to her house a lot and asks him why he hasn't come to see her of late. In all this I notice she hasn't acknowledged the lady he came with. The tall guy chuckles politely and tries to get back to his lady friend but this other chic wouldn't have it. She keeps talking and flirting with the guy and then playfully says to his lady friend "Be careful, I'm going to take your man from you. Haha". Then she turns to the guy and says "I'm expecting you, you should come to my house".
What would your reaction be if you're the light skinned chic? I think we will all just smile politely and (like to) believe that she's just joking mindlessly. Because really, would you publicly confront a lady you're meeting for the first time who playfully tells you she'll take you man? Would you?
Ok my people, let's get talking. I really missed you guys BTW.
And to the reverend father, just in case you're reading this; one of my readers told me that when you said 'it's good that you're catholic, at least you know what you're doing' (I paraphrase), what you meant was that our doctrine dictates that when someone in the clergy (propositions) us, we ought to go to another priest or a bishop and report what happened and not make the Act publicly known. Well if this is what you actually referred to, I didn't know about this before. I cannot retract what I've already said nor do I have any reason to, but please know that that statement wasn't intended to castigate anyone or to paint the church as a whole in a bad light, maybe like someone said I should have written 'Spiritual leader', and I've noted this.
