My heart was racing even before I woke up. He's coming today, my eyes flew open! He'd already informed me that he wanted to eat when he gets here, and living solitarily for now, I knew I probably didn't have anything edible at home so rushing to the market was the only option. Market runs done, I put my mittens on and got cooking. Last minute, it occured to me that this meal would go very well with some very succulent dodo.
Once again I jumped into the car and sped to the closest roundabout to buy a bunch of plantain. I needed food to be ready and served when he got here. Lastly, I needed to check the drinks, check that they were chilled, he had hinted at juice but I threw in a few sodas, just in case. Oh there was also mention of chocolates and thankfully I have lots of those at home, he would have more than enough when he gets here.
You see, I aim to please my men, I don't let it be said that there's something wanting, something more I could have done, something extra that's missing. No missy! I aim to please, completely; whether it's a lover, a platonic friend or a blog reader. Yes, it was a blog reader. Uyi was coming over and if he was coming all the way, then I would see to it that he left a satisfied customer.
The day was very interesting, well Uyi is very interesting so it's only to be expected. After getting fed, we.......... Honestly I have no idea what we did and where all the time went, it was a whole day and it was gone in a flash! But as they say; time flies when you're having fun, right?
We then decided to hit the road, with no clear plan. Of course options in Nigeria are often either food-centric or movies. We chose movies, and if you haven't seen The Intern then you should! It's a very beautiful movie starring Robert Deniro and Anne Hathaway. It was a near-perfect movie, everything was perfect, save for the couple sitting to my left. If I didn't know better I'd have thought the guy was partially blind and deaf. I mean, the movie is no Matrix or Inception, yet he needed her to explain what was going on at each step of the way; what did he say? Why did he say it? What just happened? What is going to happen? Why are they laughing? Why is she crying? Aaaaargh! And the chica would painstakingly answer all his questions. Love, love in a beautiful thing. I mean at some point I could see them kissing from the corner of my eye. She's a better person than I am; if I have to explain everything to you at every other scene, you ain't getting no sugar, you've completely killed my vibe!
But doesn't it make you think? You know how nobody is perfect? Yeah our lovers come with flaws just like everyone else, but most people have that one thing they do or say that gets our goat. That one thing your boo does that drives you up the wall! You know what I'm talking about, yeah? Please share with me bae's most ANNOYING mannerism(s). Hehehe!
I'm currently talking to this pretty cool guy whom I like quite a lot, but jeez can he belabor a point!!! Like he can repeat the same thing over and over and over again and in the slowest, most infuriating manner that you just want to tear your hair out and feed it to yourself! LOL. Still, I like him though.
Ps; of course Uyi isn't the only man I cook for ooooooo, just in case you were wondering. Some days ago I talked about meeting Memphis through my blog. Uyi is another special person I met through the blog, and there are many others who are just as special. But what's even more beautiful is seeing people who met on my blog form strong friendships, business relationships and romantic relationships. Apparently quite a lot goes on behind the scenes, I've got my eyes on y'all and I'm loving it!
