I thought home-cooked meals will stop in the new week. My mind was that she had done that to be a good flatmate. It seems I might get to enjoy this for a while.
My only mistake is that I ate before getting home.
Is it actually possible to be saying sorry too often? Isn’t that part of ethics, morals, and civility?
Especially when the person isn’t being self-effacing, or abdicating responsibility for something gone wrong.
Surround yourself with people that fuel you to do more.
Surround yourself with people who always help you get out of stagnancy.
Surround yourself with people who would always see the good in even seemingly difficult situations.
What do you mean?
After saying Hello, shouldn’t your name be the next thing you say?
You are right about that. Maybe your beauty just stole the words out of my mouth.
There must be an alternate universe where you and I end up together. But in this universe, how can I end up with this your friend I have come to like?
By the evening of Sunday, I knew I had no choice but to call Rukevwe. Every bone in me assured me that if this weekend passed without me calling her, I would have blown my chances.
However the dice fall, at least, I would have given it my best shot.
All that came to my mind at that point was that Aproko Doctor would be very proud of this baby. He has been advising everyone to drink water. Especially after they wake up. And here is my baby girl doing exactly that.
Sometimes, just like and share a picture and move on. Other times, drop a compliment, the person might really need it.
Just don’t let your compliment always be the precursor to them asking or being asked, “savings or current”.
I got back to the sitting room and met Tomi and Hannah giggling like sisters sharing a secret.
I had taken a long bath, thinking up ways to split the girls without getting either of them upset. My head had come up with nothing.
Of what use is a friend that is never available when needed? What are you supposed to do with a friend who shows up only a couple of days after they were needed?
This hen must really be crazy!!! Why didn’t she scavenge for worms and ants in the ground for her chicks?
Why wait till I’ve gathered the dirts?
These witches have succeeded. The Coven have had their way. How in the world did Tomi and Hannah get home before me?
Why do they look content? Who cooked? Why are they eating together?
My enemies have finally gotten me.
At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter what your name is or what you are called. What matters is what you answer to.
More importantly, if you don’t like what you are being called, insist that it be changed. Or just stop responding to the wrong one.
I, like many people I know, tend to find it difficult to let friends from the past go.
We stay attached to the memories and emotions shared, then tie this to the person, and eventually, we never let them go.
It dawned on me today that for someone who supports Liverpool, I have too many friends supporting a team embroidered in a ferocious rivalry. Manchester United.
This is not right.
They will likely hold this grudge until another incident blows over it.
Whatever the case might be, I didn’t ask anyone not to try getting at Tomi. But I actually pity whoever has the balls to try though.
Imagine a married couple that has no shared interest. That do not enjoy each other’s company. They always need a visitor to be around.
A couple that cannot spend an hour in discussion, because they will always run out of topics to talk about.
Eventually, Henry, our class captain had to send out everyone who wasn’t a member of our class.
I don’t need to say it, but the magic of Valentine was dead. Cupid probably sat atop a cloud weeping.
I was expecting someone to say that. And it most definitely had to be Paul. The only thing he loved more than football was the ladies.
Any match day he failed to show up here, you can be certain he had a lady with him at home.
Fast as lightning, I jumped out of the bed and ran to the sitting room. It seems Tinu forgets that she is a lady, a pretty one at that, sometimes.
She is the one temptation I dare not fall for.
From 2021 and beyond, may our peak period, our productive days, and our best years not be wasted away through no fault of ours.
I pray we find teammates that will bring out the best in us, spur us on to excellence, and may we be that teammate to others too.
The funny thing is most people acknowledge beer muscles, the unfunny bit is it is not an excuse before the law, your boss, your spouse, or your friends.
Are friends not meant to lift each other up, show one another the way, and be sources of respite, refreshment, and resources for one another?
We were best of friends for the most part of the school day, until Tinu got in the mood to “torment” Hezekiah.
As much as 2019 is your year of Abundance, Greatness, Increase and lots more, personally, 2019 should be your year of Accountability too.
Yes, I know the normal phrase is Bros before Hoes, but there’s no way I am going to describe Tomi as such.
Now how do I describe Dan? Daniel is someone I have known all my life. We were inseparable as kids and he knew Tomi through me.
Man is a social being. We tend to share our belongings as well as mental state with the company around us. Happiness, misery, confidence, jealousy, any other feeling we might be having, we inadvertently share it with those around us.
Evil company corrupts good manners is a saying you will hear at an early age, but very few people will tell you of another aspect to the company you keep.
According to her, since Tomi was like a sister to me, she’ll be giving us some “Sisterly Rules”, made with sisterly love, and having non-sisterly consequences.
My friendship has never been for hire, that’s why I have always built relationship not caring about immediate gains nor considering what I could pilfer off you.
