Every Saturday, lots of ladies (Including guys) are ready to hit one wedding or another. Decked and regaled in the latest fashion. As for me, I'm not a wedding person, can count on one hand how many weddings I have attended. Mum don shout tire, "Ugochi, learn to attend people's weddings so that they will attend yours too". So does it mean if I don't go to their weddings then they wont attend mine? Hmmmm, I wonder the crowd I will need to hire for my wedding (lol).As I was said (#winks), we ladies are a special brand. We go to weddings for various and often, funny reasons. Check out this conversation:
Anita: Babe, a friend invited me for a wedding this weekend ooo, make we show jare. Wetin we dey do for house sef?
Jane: Abi nah, make we commot go catch fun, who knows, we fit jam maga (both grins).
Please help me, Are weddings now the new hip joints to catch fun? True, lots of matchmaking are done in weddings, so are lots of teary eyed, second best, dumped gals and guys there too. Lol.
I read today about a guy that dated a lady for 11 years and then dumped her just a day to his wedding to another lady. Ouch!!!
Heard of another guy that dated a gal for seven years and wen he was ready to marry her, his mum was against it, he ended up marrying another lady (a close friend to the lady). Hmmmm, I comment my reserve (I'll talk about this issue some other time).
Despite all these though, good things come out from weddings. A friend of mine actually met her mother in law who then introduced her to her husband (now), in a wedding. The irony was that, her boyfriend broke up with her on that day and instead of being moody and crying her eyes out at home, she chose to attend that wedding, and luck shone on her face cos that was where she met future mother in law (now mother in law).
So for those of you going or in a wedding ceremony now, have fun and watch out for which category you will find, who knows, Mr/Miss Right might be side-eyeing you there. So remember to look good, and ladies please don't fall on your heels, Lolz.
NOTE: Do not miss the JOLLOF rice, I repeat, do not miss the JOLLOF rice. If you don't see Jollof rice, WHITE rice is a good substitute, and if that is not available, manage to chop EBA. Let your presence not be in vain, and ladies please DO NOT tie your GELE like that sister in that picture, may turn your prospective suitor off biko. I have said my own.
Love you all and have a beautiful day.
