Tomorrow its another person sending an invitation to for her wedding... and next tomorrow its yet another person inviting me for hen night.... and yet one more for baby shower. When it became a tad annoying was when the guys my age began to send me wedding invitation too... Chei!! I understand girls marrying young, but guys you too???????
And then the question starts rolling in...
Friend one: 'Yes ooo, thank you for your compliments, na God do am, so shey you are coming with your bobo?'
Friend 2: 'Babes make we do come chop rice ooo, which of the guys would be the lucky one'
Aunty: 'You no go do make you marry ooo, all these my lovely baby things you want me to dash them out to another person abi?'
Friend 3: 'Its best you settle down in your twenties o, e hard to find man in your thirties'
Mummy: 'Are you still praying? ask God for guidance, you are not getting any younger'
Pastor: 'Beauty fades...so sisters stop all this choosy character of yours and be prayerful about your partner to be...when I met my wife....etc etc'
Friend 4: Babes... na wa ooo...as you open eye reach you no dey talk of marriage at all?
|Recently, this is how I think on Saturdays|
You see when such comments come in, with the advise that is quick to follow after any response I give (Negative or positive) , I act indifferent and laugh it off and tactfully switch the conversation back to them... but the mind is a silly thing, a seed has been planted in my mind and at night, it tries to fix its roots firmly there, such seeds are like broken records that plays the most annoying parts of the conversation over and over and over again. those annoying parts, unfortunately are thought provoking leaving one question ringing in my head over and over:
'Nutty Jay... you no wan marry?'....
Its funny... when Oyibo man talked about 'peer pressure'...no one takes it seriously, until the pressure actually comes.
Any ways if you are a man or woman of marriageable age reading this and you are not yet married, please be reminded that you are not getting younger, your looks wont last forever, don't be so choosy that you miss out of your God given partner..shine your eyes, etc etc... eh en, no be only me go dey pressured for marriage
And if you are married and you are reading this...please advise us the single ones how to deal wiht all these pressure na....
