The thing is, I don’t think she knows about it.
It all started on August 22nd of this year when Rosie co-hosted with me for the Female, Accomplished, Over 30, and Single show. That was Rosie’s debut on the Verastically Speakin’ Talk Radio. Mr. Shoes listened to that show as usual, and he loved it. He later told me that Rosie was his favorite co-host because he liked her voice.
A few weeks ago, we [Mr. Shoes and I] were planning the upcoming shows, and when I mentioned that I wanted to have Rosie co-host yesterday’s show [Naija, Here I Come], Mr. Shoes’s face brightened up, and we had this conversation:
Him: Rosie is co-hosting?
Him: Does she know I like her voice?
Me: (laughing) Yes, she knows actually. I told her.
Him: Does she like mine too?
If looks could make pigs fly, the look I gave Mr. Shoes would have certainly caused a scene in a few barnyards that day.
Last week, Mr. Shoes and I were once again planning the shows for the first quarter of 2010 when he recommended Rosie for one of the shows that we need a married person for.
Me: Oh, Rosie won’t be able to do it. She’s not married. We need a married person, remember?
Him: Rosie is not married? *eyebrows arched very high in his forehead*
Him: She’s single??? *verbal enthusiasm*
Him: Oh, wow.
(He must have forgotten that the first show she co-hosted was about being single. Well, so much for the love, Mr. Shoes! No, I am not jealous. *rolling eyes at 300 miles per hour*)
I have thought about these occurrences, and I have decided that there is only one way for me to fix it: I’m going after Turtle (Rosie’s man).
Dear Rosie, please release his digits RIGHT NOW!!!
P.S. Shows for 2010 are currently being planned and scheduled, and I’m interested in having new voices. firstname.lastname@example.org
P.P.S. I’m still waiting for those digits, Rosie. Turtle and I have to talk!
