Dear Nigerian Husband,
This has been on my mind for a while now and I think it’s only fair that I have this discussion with you. You’re a very smart man and you’re intense with common sense.
Why are some guys so clueless when it comes to trying to make their intentions known? ( I ask this because, I know you’re not one of them. You go for the kill!)
On my way to work this morning, I had one of those very awkward conversations and situations that tend to dent my life every other day. I saw this man, who I know without doubt fancies me.
After exchanging the usual pleasantries, which are often useless and baseless, I wished him a good day and was just about to carry on when he said “Emmm, this your…. emmmm… This your..” For nearly 20 seconds, this man was short of what to say. I thought for a second he was going to ask me something serious, something about my articles, something about family or whatever.
“This your… is it blue?” he was referring to my blouse. “Oh.. turquoise, you mean?” I said.
“Yes! this your turquoise shirt looks nice.”
My Dear Nigerian Husband, how hard was that? All he needed to say was my blouse was nice without trying to sound exotic or without making it look like a big deal. That same guy has shown up at my office once looking so lost and clueless. “I just came to say hello,” he said.
My Dear Nigerian Husband, what did you think my answer was? “Well Hi,” and I shut up after…lol I really can’t stand guys who aren’t straight shooters….
To make it worse, this guy is Nigerian! WIth all honesty and hope, I know beyond reasonable doubt that that man is not you! It can’t be. He surely isn’t the Nigerian Husband I’m fasting, praying and waiting for and written about… never. (Heheh)
The other night, this other one saw me in a maxi dress and flip flops and thought it wise to ask if I was returning from the gym!
Another saw me at the grocery store pushing a cart and obviously shopping and thought the right conversation starter was “What are you doing here?”
Dear Nigerian Husband, I hope you don’t think I should stand and answer such stupid questions. My reply to the dude was “Oh, nothing really, I’m just here to stare at the products!”
Please, tell me, my Dear Nigerian Husband or male readers, what’s the most ridiculous pick up line you’ve ever used.
I’m out to face more silly and awkward conversations…. 🙂
Smile, laugh, live, love, fart and be silly, life is too short.
