My current situation is Double 4, I'm drinking a cold glass of Guinness, it's about 10.50pm and I'm not ready to go home so I decided to come and post this. 😕
I just saw the best movie I've seen in a while and yet I'm still seething. Yes, I'm freaking furious. So I spent all day out, got home at about 6pm and instead of being tired I was very restless, too restless to sit still. So I took a bath, changed my clothes and came to The Palms to see a movie.
There was a premier holding at the movies today, with Nollywood people and entertainment industry people, and then some socialites. Then I spotted this handsome, tall, broad shouldered hunk of a man, part socialite, part actor, part Island big(ish) boy. He had a ton of people vying for his attention so I stood a safe distance away from him, and when the crowd around him thinned out, I approached him. He knew I was coming to meet him, we had locked eyes four or five times and he was aware of my presence, also aware that I'd been waiting to talk to him. Several people milled around him but he was alone at the time so that was my chance.
I lurched towards him, arms outstretched, mouth gaping open in a huge smile; "My in law" I sing-sang as I made to embrace him
And this guy had the nerve to jump back as if I was coming towards him with an evil glare and a dagger. After staring at me curiously for a few seconds he offered a limp handshake. I shook it and walked away.
Mad as hell!
I'm sure you're wondering if I'm mad literally. I assure you I'm not. The negro is actually my in law. I have called his wife and everybody to tell them that he is a ______ (Too many words but I have to respect him as per family so let me keep those words in my head)! I'm still reeling from the humiliation.
Sorry, Mr Man, I didn't know different protocols apply in different situations.
I'm so pissed. I'm mad at him for making me look like a thirsty fan girl in public. Aaaaargh!
Now, unto more serious things.
I noticed something tonight. You know I'm no stranger to going to the movies solo. In fact it's kinda my thing. I realize now that I've been blessed with this sense of completeness just as I am, I'm always fine riding solo, to the movies, to church, to the bar, to seminars, in life... LOL, so yes, I'm not new to this. I've had enough experience to know that something is happening. You know, it's rare that you come to the movies and people come solo. Very rare. Today however I saw many lone men and lone ladies wandering around all alone.
A lot of these men are of marriageable age. Even saw a few in their 50s solemnly wandering the mall alone. Then I went in for my movie, I was the first to get in so I was able to watch other people come in. At least 60% of the people that came to see that movie came alone, male and female. I was surprised. Why are there so many "alone" people????
And lastly, my movie! If there's only one thing you take away from this post it should be The Hitman's Bodyguard. If you haven't seen it, go watch it and thank me later.
And on that note, I head home, tomorrow is another day.
What's your current situation?
