I am 23 today....Oct 4th


So, like 23 years ago on this day; a thursday I think and at 5.00 am in the morning, I arrived on earth, disoriented and exhausted.

Since deciphering that the worn out woman inspecting my limbs was my mother, the man who was scared to carry me was responsible for my arrival and that he intended to follow up on his performance with a male child whom I would try unsuccessfully to send back, I can comfortably say that at 23 I have been blessed with the best of experiences.

My tears have been the best.

My laughter has been the best.

My journeys have been the best.

My friends ( the real ones) have been the best.

My dreams have been the best...for me.



I am 23. Officially. Today. Oct 4th.It sounds odd.

Have homework to do.

Ubong Da said...

Catwalq I hae a confession to make:

At 23. I had my "First Orgasm and 2nd fuck" , had my first major rejection "Woman Matter", met "An Angel" dated my "First Girlfriend" was "Seduced by a friend". Nna 23 was a good age for me o.

I blogged about all these. That was the year I was spoilt rotten by women.

Nita said...

Hi.
I didn't know you had three blogs. Your recent link made me realise it. Well, here I am to wish you a happy belated birthday.
I had checked your other blog, off and on, but found you hadn't posted...well, I had no idea you had this one!
I wish you had kept a wordpress blog. Its so easy to keep in touch, there is a blogsurfer which lets you know when people post, and also you can check the response to comments without going to the blog!
Yet, people stay on blogger, I don't know why!!
Anyway, a very happy birthday to you catwalq.
Regards, Nita.

Chxta said...

I didn't see this post or I'd have wished you a happy birthday on time.

Now as to your question, the answer (from my point of view) is this: people don't have to write comments on your blog for you to know that they are reading it. If I gauged the amount of traffic to my blog by the number of comments I get, I would assume that people don't read my shit. Same way, I am writing not so that people would comment, but so that people would take something with them. On the other side of it, I don't always have to respond to everyone's comments because (and this is a lesson I've learnt over the course of writing the blog) I'd end up wasting a lot of precious time arguing with people who frankly don't want to be convinced of anything.

Same applies to Jeremy. At least we talked about it the last time we met up.

My 2 cents said...

Pele love, Happy belated birthday. May the rest of your years be the best of your years.

Idemili said...

Belated Happy Birthday!!!! Hope you enjoyed youself.
