Today I met The King

Today I met The King after I wrangled an invitation from Solomonsydelle to her son's (and my future husband's) birthday where I was sure to get free food on my way home. I had a lovely time spent marveling at how she and her quiet husband managed to not only entertain two other couples and myself but also their three rambunctious kids. Her babies are so cute, bikonu!!!

Of course when I arrived, I immediately introduced myself to my husband. He gave me a once over and returned to his plate of chicken. His sister, my inlaw gave me a small greeting and the celebrant, Bomboy, a small smile. I was not to be deterred. I needed to have them eating out of my hand if I was to ensure that my wine carrying ceremony would take place in the future.

What did I not try? I smiled. I teased. I flirted. I even tried to be saucy. The boy no gree. Haba! It was when he told me that the low cut on my head was not hair compared to his mother's tresses that I knew somebody had been there before me to put sand in my garri. I mean, what could a young and succulent twenty-three year old babe have done to irk this toddler so?

I was so crushed but I am not finished with this boy yet. Whether he likes it or not, he is carrying my wine. So hence (is this a word? I know there is "henceforth" but is hence used this way? I digress) hence, the countdown to my ascension to The King's highly coveted position of Queen.

Why is it going to go my way? In the words of the-owner-of-the-money-of-my-head,
"Because I said so".....

Haba Catwalq, you for let the man grow up small first.

As it is, I'm sure you dont even know the competition you're up against because the little girls too now start before KG1.

I know this because my son has been coming home with all kinds of 'wine carrying' proposals from school.

NikkiSab said...

consciousness said...

Salutations Ms. Catwalq!!

…Sheepishly trying to cloak my admiration for your work with a quick gloss over is futile … Try as I may to condense my respect for your creative brilliance, I always fail…alas, my grossly inadequate vocabulary does me no favours either…thusly, when I say “your creative brilliance evokes awe from simpletons like us”… my intended expression is more like “top job sista! I think your newly adopted blog layout rocks!” …whichever of the pair conveys the intended sentiment, do please accept as my offering to your good self…!!

Peeeeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaacccccccccceeee!!
C!!

Carlang said...

Hello dear,
Nice to see that life is chugging on nicely at your end.
And what's this?
You have a husband all picked and dressed for the future?

My my.

As usual i found myself more entranced with your writing than with the contents.

I hope you submitted something for Atutu's proect.
it would be a shame if you didn't.

Queen of My Castle said...

This post was too cute! LOL. You think the little lad is playing hard to get? Someone had taught him well...the best way to get attention from the one you really admire is to ignore her. LOL
