WRITTEN BY ONE BEAUTIFUL CHIC THAT I KNOW
Finally valentine is here, at least everyone will stop taking about it after today. Its annoying how its all over the radio and television like there’s nothing else to talk about. Okay, maybe I’m pissed because I don’t have a boyfriend to share a gift with, but then on the bright side, I get to keep my money :D. I mean, it could have been worse, some people will give out gifts without knowing they are side chicks or guys or whatever…LOL! What could be worse than that?! Waste of energy and money!!
Now I’m not trying to console myself, but I will definitely feel bad if I have to go through emotional and financial stress to get a gift for somebody whom I consider special to me and with whom I want to share my love and then find out I’m not the real deal but the backup plan or assistant girlfriend. Omo, it will pain me gan, so I’d rather be booless and spend valentine playing candy crush on my phone.
The question now for y’all excited about valentine is “Are You Your Boo’s Real Boo?!” I know some Naija girls response will be “Who cares, shebi na to collect gift”
Well for those of you who care, do your investigations well before you waste your money. Last year, my roomie, Ify* spent all day sweating and making arrangements to make a nice romantic dinner for her boyfriend. The venue was supposed to be in his room, but the guy’s number refused to go through. Later, she got through to him and went to his place with the package. My other roomie, Tomi* came back from her date and told me she had seen Ify’s boyfriend flexing with some girl. We decided not to tell her so as not to break her heart on Saint Valentine ’s Day. When she got back she told us that her boyfriend said the food was too peppery so he couldn’t eat it, Tomi and I decided that we can not do Ify two favours; we either had to laugh or break her heart, so we chose the former. Ahan, uncle even if the food was peppery, its valentine’s day you’re supposed to receive it with love and not complain. But then, that is what happens when you are not your boo’s real boo.
Now if I had to choose between what happened to Ify and having no boo to exchange gifts with or show love to, I’ll grab the latter. So with pleasure will I celebrate my valentine’s day alone. I’ve got no worries.
Display Pictures have changed, Personal Messages have changed, gifts are being exchanged and two of my contacts tagged the same guy “boo”…the question is “Are you your boo’s real boo?”
*The names are unreal.
