Life, life......

Now my best friend(male) has made me believe in the act of life continues. Let me start by saying I have 2 best friends. A man and a woman, at 30 years and both getting married in a few months I shouldn't be calling them boy and girl again.

My best friend boy is awesome and I LOVE HIM ever so dearly. How did he manage to become my best friend sef, years ago when I was in my year 2 in Uni was when we met.

Our Story:
I really can't remember now but he was really ''chasing '' me then. I was so attracted to him as well but hid it perfectly well. After about 4 months of hide and seek, we started a relationship that lasted for 3 weeks. Life is tough! The 3 weeks was fun, always together, lunch and dinner was one thing we never missed having together. Then out of the blues one day I went to check him at home only to find all his flatmates outside, after the normal pleasantries one of them offered to take me out because the person I came to see is yet to come back from school. Haba, with his car parked outside...... life life.

Went home and 30 minutes later, he was knocking.

His Story:

Sweetheart, I am really sorry and I really shouldn't be telling you this. There is this girl I have been asking out for a year now, out of the blues she agreed to be mine. Now I am so torn between....

Shut up idiot I screamed! If you like her then go for her, I definitely do not deserve someone that still have the hots for someone else. Get out!

Next morning, I left for home to cry on my mum's shoulders.Spent a week at home and by the time I got back to school I had forgiven him. Talk about parental therapy: highlighting that he definitely isn't a correct person! lol

Somehow, we resolved the differences and we became really close. After Uni, we both started working not so far away from one another in Abuja. Sometimes he picks me up from work and sometimes I pick him up. He never missed having dinner at my place, he became very close to my sisters and Ex. He Then in September 2003 the girlfriend met someone new and she moved on!

He called me to say we should go for lunch, well that is kinda normal. When I got downstairs, I saw my friend looking so forlorn.

Temmy: Ki lode Mr Man? Why you dey bone face for your person?
Bestfriend: E don happen o.
Temmy: Wetin.
Bestfriend: She left me.
Temmy: Who left you?
Bestfriend: Lola.
Temmy: (started to laugh like a mad woman). Babes, I am sorry but it was just funny. My pound of flesh at last! lol.

He was shaking so badly and I had to take the keys from him. When we got to our usual amala spot, best friend just started to cry. Omo disgrace, I quickly turned his car around and drove him back to my office.

For the period while he mourned his loss, I was his support. He wouldn't dare cry in front of his boys, with me he cried, he wailed, he sobbed. He was a normal person, he wasn't trying to ''form'' MAN.

To cut long story short before I bore you all to death. He met a younger girl in 2004.I teased endlessly about the age difference, he is 7 years older but the babe is really matured.Last night he called me at midnight to say that he just proposed to her and she accepted. They are getting married in June on her birthday.

Temmy: hello sweets,it's midnight u no dey sleep.
Him: Shut up monkey.
Temmy: Gorilla, ki lo de o. I dey go church tomorrow I no get time for gists.
Him: for real??(being very sarcastic now)Idiot. My friend, Dee has agreed to marry me.
Temmy:(Sleep clearing fro my eyes in 2 seconds flat). When did that happen(screaming).
Him: Why are u making noise now, ara oko(bush woman).Just now, you are the first person we are telling. It is a pity you can' t be the best man but when the boys are prostrating for her parents you will sure join us now.
Temmy: you are sick, abeg give phone to Dee jare.

This morning my best friend then sent a text: You know that you are my life time addiction,we have come a long way, I know when you are happy and I know when you are trying hard to be happy. Give O.A another chance. He is truly sorry and you know it. I love you. P.S He loves you more.

To answer your questions: Ex picked up and I have apologised to him. He sent an SMS this morning: your best friends are getting married in June. What are you, I mean what are we waiting for?


I replied: your best friend.
He replied: I will tell him to propose to his girlfriend tonight. lol.

Temmmmmmy...this means that we'll be attending a wedding soon...lol

I'm glad u and ur best friends remained close, even if u dated for three weeks and he's getting married to someone else. It probably made ur friendship even more solid, because not everyone is made for you...he wasn't meant for u. He was meant to just be a best friend, and I believe the REAL special person is abt to propose...hmmm...sha tell us o...
