My dear Blogsville
But I have a confession to make.
I am having an affair.
Yes. There I said it.
I am having a passionate steamy affair.
But can you blame me?
The things we have done.
The chocolate, the caramel, the ice?
The DMs back and forth...
Blogsville I am having an affair.

...with Twitter.

It was bound to happen jere.
First it was just to secure the franchise name you know?
Fabulo-la Inc. does have a nice ring to it, doesn't it?

Oh well..what can I say?
Twitter has captured my heart...
But you blogsville are my first love.....

For now anyways.
Or until another John walks into my life.

Lool..As much as I am tempted too.
And I can already see our babies..but No.
I am not. He has a girlfriend I hear.

I guess I will just have to wait till Office Christmas party to find out.
or I can just walk by his office until then send me home.
So...I have a date tomorrow.
And I am not looking forward to it.
In fact I have already planned my escape strategy sef.

So..this dude is from St. Lucia (strike 1...I don't like Caribbeans...well not like that)
He has dreads (strikes 2,3.4.5....u get the point)
He has that mix of British and Caribbean accents..not very attractive (strike 6, 7, 8,9)

And then he says things like Exactement!...??? Really? (strike 10)

This is how it happened...

I was walking to class, minding my business
When I see someone trying to get my attention. In a very obnoxious Hummer.
Yes I said it! We are trying to go green, why r u driving a hummer? Just saying.
So brother asks for directions, and I begin to give it to him
And then he stops me and goes..

Him: I'm sorry, but Im just so smitten by your looks and your accent. Where are you from?
Me:...uhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh...*blank confused stare* uhhh Im Nigerian??
Him: right...
Me: so go..
Him: Im sorry, but whats your name?
Me:...uhh Fabulo-la?
Him: Wow. Im sorry but Im so totally smitten.

*Is he serious???*
At this point people are beginning to horn for him cause he is holding up traffic.

Me: well uhmm..I gotta go.
Him: Oh can u please just hold up one second, lemme just get out of the way..

I know I could totally have just walked away, but for some reason I just felt that would be totally rude. And I HATE rude there I am standing, looking very aimless wondering why my mother ingrained in me a disdain for mannerless people.

Dude turns around..comes back and goes...
Him:So Im sorry i just totally forgot the directions you were giving me..
Me:..uhmm ok 4 stop signs and then make left...
Him: great..well is there anyway I can get your number so i can call you?
Me: I really gotta go.
Him: Come on...You gonna leave a brother hanging?
Him: Come whats the number?
Me:917 419 5555. Ok i gotta go.
Him:Great can I give you a ring tonight?
Me: Uhmm no that would be a bad idea.
Him: Tomorrow?
Me: No. That would be a bad idea...I gotta go
Him: Ok Fabulo-la. Saturday then.

This was almost a month ago.
Just to show you how I have been running from said dude.
I am not looking forward to this I tell you.

LOL haha! I guess it was one of those situations where you felt it would be wrong not to give him the number right? Sometimes when some guys approach you,you feel very happy just telling them to stick it! Give the man a chance now, he might be a nice guy. And maybe you can get him to chop off his dreads hehehe! Does he have a nice body? If he does forget looks mehn! We all need Adewale Akinuoyes! He's my celeb crush you see.

Still.. If he ended up getting your number, he must have been doing something right.

Or am I missing something here? :S

On October 9, 2009 at 5:41 PM , Fabulo-la said...

@leggy..yes yes he gets points for bravery..but thats it. lol

@Davidnumbaone:...I will keep it moving.

@Roc: but u see thats the thing...I was more concerned with being polite and not appearing rude than I was with whether I wanted to see him again. Dsnt make anysense I know. but Im a female. Such is life.

Meanwhile ROC where have u been???
