Simi’s Musings 1

Hello People,

I know I’ve been MIA for a while, I’m sorry about that. I had exams and had to take some time off blogging but I’m back now. How have you been? I’ve missed blogging and reading all your comments. Anyways, I’m back now and I’m starting a new series. I’ve uploaded the first episode today to compensate for being away for so long. The next episode will be on Friday as usual.

Please read and remember to leave a comment 🙂

Have a great week!
Hugs and kisses.

‘Simi, I plan to propose to Tayo on her birthday.’

Omg this isn’t happening!! They have only been dating for only a year…

I push my thoughts to the corners of my mind and try my best to react as expected.
‘Oh wow!! That’s so sweet, I’m so happy for you two. ’ I manage to say and give him a side hug. We are both standing in a crowded restaurant waiting to be seated. I was surprised when David called me yesterday and asked us to meet for lunch today, not that we’ve never had lunch together because our offices are close to each other.

‘I didn’t see it coming though…you’ve only been together for about year and…’

‘I know but I really love Tayo and I know she’s the one.’ He narrows his eyes, ‘I can feel it in my spirit and I’m ready to spend the rest of my life with her.’ His eyes stare into my mine as if seeking for approval; I nod and smile.

‘I haven’t told your parents yet, I wanted to tell you first before telling them.’

Seriously dude, they would be over the moon, especially mum. Finally she’s going to have a wedding to plan; since according to her, I’ve chosen to remain single.

I listen as he goes on about the reasons he loves my sister, how he managed to get her ring size, the way he’s going to pull the proposal off… till a waiter comes and shows us to our table. I don’t even know why he picked this restaurant of all places knowing it will be packed at this time. I only have thirty minutes to be back at work.

The waiter waits to take our orders while I take a look at the menu, I’m still trying to decide between chicken chow mein and special fried rice.
‘You should go for the chicken teriyaki, it’s really nice.’

Before I have a chance to accept or decline, he orders two chicken teriyaki served with basmati rice and two glasses of orange juice. I try to hide my irritation. We continue talking till our food comes and I tuck in with much gusto because I haven’t eaten all day and true to his word, it is very tasty. We finish our meals, David picks the bill and we get up to leave. Like a true gentleman, he opens the door for me and we both step into the scorching Lagos sun.

We walk in silence for a few minutes, my mind trying to digest the news I had just heard and at the same time trying to bury the green eyed monster threatening to raise its ugly head. We get to my office first, because David’s office is further down the road.

‘By the way Simi, I have this friend and I think I can hook you two up.’

Oh gosh, even you too? Why is everyone trying to hook me up???It’s not like I go about with a HOOK ME UP sign on my forehead.

‘He’s a Christian, has a good job, really good looking, his younger brother and I went to uni together. He…’

I hope he’s not like you though.

‘Okay fine, suit yourself! I reply and playfully nudge him. He promises to give him my number before continuing to his office.

The rest of the day goes by in a blur, my thoughts processing a million and one things. Chinelo, who sits next to me notices and asks if I’m okay. I make an excuse about not feeling too well, which is true anyways.
On my way back home I go to a supermarket close to the house and get a big tub of Ben and Jerry’s , a pack of Haribo and Maryland cookies, today I don’t care about my waistline, I just need some comfort food. Luckily for me, my parents travelled to Dubai, so it’s just Tayo and I at home with the domestic staff. I am greeted by Idowu, the house maid as soon as I open the door. She reaches for my handbag and the bag containing my goodies

‘Aunty, welcome, how was work today?’
‘Fine.’ I’m really not in the mood for small talk today but it’s so hard to ignore Idowu and her ever pleasant demeanor.
‘I made ofada rice today, should I serve your food on the table or bring it upstairs?’
I’m supposed to be impressed because she knows ofada rice and sauce, with the right amount of pepper and assorted meat is my favorite food.
‘No don’t worry, I’m not hungry.’

Her eyes widen in surprise and I don’t blame her because I never refuse ofada rice. Never.
‘Aunty are you sure? Make I bring small now?’

‘I said NO.’ My reply startles her and she moves away from me and takes my stuff upstairs. I walk past Tayo’s room without stopping to say hello, I know she’s back because I saw her car outside. I lock my door as soon as I get in, change into my PJs, get into my bed and dig into my ice cream.
Halfway through the ice cream tub, and almost through the packet of cookies, I set them aside and do what I’ve wanted to do all afternoon.

I let the tears come.
