***Vera smiling from ear to ear***
Where do I start from??? Hmmmm. I’ll make this short and sweet. And by the time I’m done, you’ll feel one or more of these emotions: happy, jealous, confused, curious, doubtful, angry…. did I mention jealous already? Hehehe.
So there I was on Saturday, jejely minding my own business @ home. I wore a black and pink blouse and a pair of black jeans. I wore the pink shirt to commemorate Valentine. It was either that or something red, but I didn’t have anything I liked in red. Well, my red tops were either dirty, too casual, or too formal. So pink it was.
I decided to make some moi moi. I had been putting it off for over a week. I was home, listening to music, and dancing every now and then. I was gonna watch a Naija flick after cooking. Funmi called and said she was coming over to eat. I told her not to come to my house. I did not want to spend my Valentine with a girl. But did she listen? Nope! The babe showed up here and ate my food. I even washed her dishes when she was done.
We started watching a Naija movie, and that was when it happened. He called. He was downstairs. He surprised me with a heart-shaped box of chocolates, a funny Valentine card, and loadza starbursts. He brought me starburts! Can you believe that??? That was too sweet!!
By the way, he flew in from a different state. AND we had never met before Valentine’s day…. AND I did not give him my address.
……So that’s all I’m willing to say about Valentine’s Day. Hehehehehe. If you need more details, you know the drill: send a bottle of perfume to my P. O. BOX.
P.S. I know this sounds like fiction, but apparently, miracles happen. Ask Funmie. She was there. I’m glad she was. Or else, I would have thought I had started imagining things. Funmie was so excited, she almost locked us both out of the house in our quest to welcome our surprise guest. Funny thing is, that morning, Busola was laughing @ me and asking me if Saint Valentine had sent my Valentine yet. I said, “Not yet.” We laughed about it. I didn’t actually think I was going to have a Valentine, but voila…!!
So tell me, how are you feeling?? Happy, jealous, confused, curious, angry….. maybe a bit more jealous???? Hehehe. What can I say? I did ask God for unmerited favor. Now, if only He (God) can do me this other favor. Hmmmmmmm.
