“….. so you are saying I didn’t give you a cold shoulder”
Lol, this is a special edition you can already tell. So I got my parents to give us the gist on how they met, and it was laughter all through for me.
Alright, I am going to be writing the “gist” according to how they individually told it. Why don’t you rest your back.
P.s statements in the bracket are my comments
My friend Abass invited me to his house, he was hosting a club meeting. I wasn’t one of the members of the club but after the meeting, they had like a small party where they could invite non-members so he invited me for that. I think it was on a Sunday. By the time I got there, they were about rounding up so he just told me to sit in the sitting room and after a while other people were also coming in for the party. And I think your mum was with the wife because they are friends and then she walked into the sitting room and sat just across the room.
Abass walked up to me and told me “you know that lady is a Muslim o and she’s even from your side”. Some minutes after, Abass was picking people in groups to come take pictures with him and then he called your mum and me with a few other people. So in the course of taking pictures, he officially introduced us. I asked her where she was from and she said Irolu luckily I knew a number of people from there and I was asking her if she knew them and she confirmed that she did and that was how we kicked off with the conversation. After a while, she said she was leaving and I had just been at the party for like 25/30 minutes but then I offered to escort her. I got to the bustop and I asked her for her number and she gave me a card (classy babe). And we just started talking from there.
Ayo: wait how come you guys were talking on the phone, thought there weren’t phones then.
Yea, we were using the landline phones at our office.
Mum: So you are saying I didn’t give you a cold shoulder?
Yea kind of, I asked for her address and she went “I am sorry I don’t entertain someone I just met”
I was about going back to the party halfway and I just felt there was no point so I was walking back to the bustop and I saw one of my friends who was also going to the party and he was teasing me that he just saw a lady with me and she has left me that was why I was walking alone and I went “I didn’t lose now this is her card right here” (smooth man) and he was like she only gave me because she wanted to push me away and I told him “well time would tell”
(Someone give this man some accolades. Confidence confidence)
We spoke for a while on the phone until she finally gave me her office address. I located the office but because of the office environment, we couldn’t talk too long so we went to a restaurant and a drink and we walked to the bustop together. And we clicked off from there
I think it was an anniversary party o, well maybe they had a combined party. My friend Florence (the wife to Abass) invited me but prior to that time I have been a regular person at their house and some of Abass friends had been having their eyes on me (hot chick) but they were mostly womanizers.
So the day of the party we were catching up and I think your dad came in a bit late. My friend’s husband introduced us “ahhh biola this man is from your side” (like my G any other line). We talked for a bit at the party and he offered to escort me. We started talking on the phone but I was giving him some “cold shoulder” I wasn’t really interested. His friend Abass was even at my house, patronizing me on his behalf so I just decided to give him my office address.
I remember during that time, I went home for the ileya festival and my mum was asking me for the names of the men I was having flings with. I gave her some names including that of your dad’s for “consulting” and then she came back to tell me your dad was going to be a responsible man and he has been just that and still his. (cheeii my father is the realest G)
Funny enough growing up I had always wanted to marry someone from a bigger town than mine and it was always Sagam that came to mind and God literally just granted my wish (how sweet)
What I have learned from these two individuals is that marriage is definitely not for the faint heart. It takes two strong individuals or at least one of them to keep the marriage firm. Marriage is life in itself and sometimes it throws unexpected tantrums but it takes the strong hearted to stand the heat. It takes God’s grace and a lot of patience.
“daddy don’t tell mummy o” “mummy don’t tell daddy o” well THAT MEINS YOU WILL SLEEP THERE
