Today started like any normal day, except there was a strange ray of light in my bedroom…SUN!!! And since i hadn’t experienced any of that lately, I instinctively reached for my phone, and called my sweet friend to inquire as to the whereabouts of her evil step-mom,so that I could sneak myself into their pool. God was on my side; the witch had flown broom-class to Lagos that same morning. Halleluyerr!!!
A quick shower and 30mins later, I’m in the pool...feeling fabulous….soaking up the wonderful ambience that only a home-owned pool could provide.Listening to good music has proven to provide me immense inspiration,so I selected a nice playlist from my lappy,and allowed my mind wander far away from this dusty town,and into the glossy world of my fantasies;where I’m a billionaire heiress,also married to a Mafia boss in southern California, using pina-coladas to swallow panadol.
My friend,Kay,a 22 yr old undergrad student was busy performing domestic duties, and so I was left alone with all the privileges I could imagine as she told me “Feel at home,dear”.
Feel at Home?Lol.This babe had no idea...
I sat in one of em poolside recliner things,and sipped coconut juice from the coconut itself, with a bowl of exotic fruit.(Reality being Coke and groundnut, but hey, a girl is alllowed to dream).
I had taken my laptop and gone online to see what was poppin in the civilized world when,BAM!!! I saw it...
The article said it belonged to a Nigerian Family, who had decided to erect this tasteful work of art in their hometown and so on,but...There it was...
My fantasies were instantly upgraded.
Even now as I write this, I still no know wetin to talk but CLEARLY,this is the kind of pool that when you go in with natural hair, you come out on the other side with waist-length, braz/peruv/Indian hair!!!
No disrespect intended, but my current location immediately felt like I had been swimming in the village stream.
As I dey now,I am currently pre-occupied with the task of belonging to that family.
I have it all figured out:
· Google the owner.
· Find son (brother, cousin, gardener, gateman or wharreva)
· Crash diet
Practice new walk and talk....and its done.
