As if that is all, two of my friends have decided to get married in December. This same December 2021 For perspective, one of them is having an elaborate introduction party while the other is having a full-blown wedding party in Abuja. Not even Lagos o. And for each person, a specific aso-Ebi color.
Meanwhile, as it stands like this, I’m likely to trek to Abuja because the aso-Ebi price is competing with plane ticket prices, and I have weighed my options. Give me my flowers, first woman to trek from Lagos to Abuja, please.
I have pondered this issue like “Should I run away? Or should I start a church? ” Because if we decide to measure height together, these bills are taller than me, despite that I’m about 5 ft 10.
I thought that was all until last Saturday. I was walking home when my hairdresser screamed my name at the top of her voice, “Eniola!”
I confidently turned to the left because the last time I checked, I did not owe anybody money. I found my hairdresser standing hands akimbo in front of her saloon. I walked up to her with a smile, hoping that she was going to share some good news about Christmas hair discounts with me, but instead, guess what she said to me?
“Enny, you know that in 2021, you made your hair only once, na so so wig-wig-wig, a haha, you do not tire.”
Ladies and gentlemen, this cantankerous woman has the loudest voice you’ve ever heard. Her pitch can be compared to Sia’s voice, even though she doesn’t belong in the church choir.
Yet, she decided to ask me such a disgraceful question in public. I smiled and responded, “Is that why you called me?”
“Yes,” she replied, Is that not enough reason? Come and do my Christmas hair, I need money, ”she added, playing with my round cheeks. Okay, I’ve heard you, I replied, walking away from her.
On my way home, all my prayers were just that I should see one container full of dollars, or that it should start raining pounds sterling on my head so that I could sort all this out.
But since that won’t happen, don’t you think we should postpone this year’s Christmas?
