I started it o. I said I will not marry early. When the girls were talking about what they wanted in life and how to keep a man, I was busy dulling....looking at them like they were crazy. Chai!!! Now see my life. Me that had the longest list of what I wanted my life to be. Me with my lists...and my plans...and my deadlines...and my chykas...and my foolishness. Chaiii!!! Who is now the crazy one? It will not be well with the person that did this to me o.
It all started 3 years ago when the real suitors started to come my way. (Biko why wouldn't they come? I had it all na....curvy, fair, smooth skin, pointed nose, an amazing voice and a knack for catching fun.) I was the IT-GIRL, so, like butterflies, they came. And I enjoyed every bit of it but I still claimed not to want to settle down (mama said we should not let it show).
Nnamdi was a catch o. Should I start explaining? He was everything I needed except for his aversion towards house chores...but his money made up for it. I didn't mind o. Mess up the house....I'll clean it up....as far as your ATM card is in my hand to do as I please. Abeg who no like better thing?
Then my evil friend, Lilian, now poured sand sand inside my garri. As I was going to see Le Boo one weekend, this babe followed me from Awka to Lagos o. Like FBI agent. For real. She learnt his address and his place of work. How she got him with her fatness and her lousyness still baffles me. Now babe is married to Le Boo and they're expecting child no 2. You see my bad luck?
I just heard that Uju is getting married. Uju that I senior with about 2 years. See how all this small small girls are marrying before me, their aunty. No respect. If I talk na, they'll say I'm talking. Nnenna married 2 months ago. Ada is engaged. Left and right, back and front, everybody is getting married.
My own is just to be doing Asoebi for people. Is dar one nor curse? My enemies are seriously hard at work. How can I nor have marry at the old age of 23? If is curse, I will go to mountain and break it.
23? Oh wow, the marriage pressure is getting realer by the day. I'm hoping in a couple of years 18yr olds wouldn't be feeling pressured to be wifed up!
