Can I be honest?
The worst things about being in a relationship with me are
- I prefer to eat out. It's not that I don't or can't cook but I'd just rather eat out. My mother gave me the "the way to a man's heart" lecture just last night. She told me how she made egusi soup with okpei (don't know the word for it in English) and served it to a customer. She said after the man ate the food he came to meet her and said "Mummy what did you put in that soup? Okpei? Hmmm, mummy why is it that my wife doesn't know all these little things? Why doesn't she know these little little secrets? Mummy, why?" My mum said she could see pain in his eyes, she could see that he was completely heartbroken (Mummy the drama queen! LOL), "...So Nwando, you really need to start doing these things, it's the first thing every man looks out for in a woman" (I don't believe it jor).
But my oga recently told one of my friends "I really really like your friend but she just has to start cooking, I'm an African man". Please what's it with Nigerian men and this 'I'm an African man' talk. Allow me to hear word biko. LOL.
BUT I'm already working on this, so I guess it's not the worst thing anymore...
The list goes on but I shall stop here.
