I always have the weirdest Valentine Days.
If it’s not someone trying to give me a gift by force, then it’s another person calling me to end a friendship, or receiving a cake that I almost threw in the trash because I didn’t like the flavor.
Well, God has been faithful, and I’m still standing strong.
Wednesday, the 14th of February, 2018 started really well. I honestly wasn’t expecting anything (as a sister is single), but deep down in my heart I knew something would happen (and it did 😂).
It wasn’t the extreme gift that I received
against my will , or the Amala and Ewedu soup that I consumed later in the day, or the brownies and cake from Melting Moments, but it was the little note that somebody very special wrote to me.
So, I’m just going to write my response to the ‘love letter’ because I know that the writer is definitely going to see this 💕
Thank you so much for the toast that you made just how I like it, and for the tea. You saved a life that morning, and you didn’t even know it.
I can’t remember ever receiving a letter on Valentine’s Day, so you’ll never realise just how pleasantly surprised I was when you gave me the letter and took off.
I always knew you loved me 😎, even before I saw the letter 😏.
I keep trying to remember how we became so close. I know we used to go for TTG together, but how did that even happen??. I like being on my own and the fact that someone could invade my space and I wouldn’t mind is a miracle on its own.
When I read the letter the first time I was so touched. I had this huge smile on my face. I’ve said to myself that I will keep that letter forever and will show your children just how mushy their parent can be 😜
Thank God you learnt doing things the easy way from me. Sometimes I legit think I’m just being lazy so I take the easy road, but to my surprise, the easy road has turned out better 99.9% of the time. It’s really cool that you looked past the black and white, undecorated PowerPoint slides I make, and you learnt something extraordinary.
Also, I like how you tried to blame your loving me on Baba’s soap (inside joke), we both know you’re just living in denial 😏.
As much as you try to suffocate me with your ‘hugs’, I still really appreciate them. Thank God you admitted to being a warrior, and to rolling in cash. Remember that what is yours’ is mine (i.e Your money and your food), and what is mine still remains mine.
Can I also express my surprise that you wrote this letter since January 5th? That’s really deep! 😏
I know I may not be as mushy as you are, and that my expression of love may be tough sometimes. But just know that I will always have your back, and I will always be available to re-teach you how to swim when you forget (again!).
Happy 5 days after Valentine’s Day baby girl. Ihu loves you.
For Adebola Akinmulewo.
P. S: I am still your chief bridesmaid. You had better not sly me!!
With lots of love,
