Say what? She asked for what?

Blogger: Xprexxion Magazine - Create PostAs usually, am always confronted with uncomfortable situations. I usually know how to talk my way through or advise my way out of it. This particular situation took me by surprise and made me speechless. I was watching the Washington Redskins getting beat like a step child by New York Giants on a nice Thursday afternoon when the phone call came in. A friend of mine wants to come and see me at home and it is important. As much as I don’t like visitors in my house, I agreed. An hour later, he arrived like a puppy looking for his owner.

My friend, what is the situation? I asked. After a few minutes of deep breath, he asked me not to laugh and it is a very sensitive subject. At this point am already laughing inside. He started by saying his girlfriend’s birthday is next week and she wants a dildo for her birthday. A what?!?! I exclaimed with a surprised face. She must be joking!! No, she is not. He replied. To make sure that I heard him correctly, I asked again. At this point am speechless. Didn’t know what to say, I asked, isn’t she a Nigerian? Yes of course! he replies. At this point I didn’t know what to say. Is she trying to tell him that he is not “Mr. Capable”? Or is she a liberated Naija woman that wants to be satisfied?

Am at lost for words. The birthday is coming and he is confused about what to do. He is seriously contemplating breaking up with her because of her gift request. Every time I think of it, I laugh. To me, it is more like a punishment. I try to imagine what was going through her mind when she was telling him of her birthday gift request “Go to store and get me the big black_______ since you are not capable”

This is my latest story in my series of “Temptation: Lord! Please deliver me”
