Even though

You are not my type
You are too quiet
You eat cheese
You don't like to read
You think my tastes in movies suck
You are a morning person
You chew gum with your mouth open
You don't like to wear suits
You don't experiment with foods
You watch too much football
You don't understand why I don't like football
You are too close to your mother
You want too many children
You don't understand why I don't want children
You watch Flavor Flave
You watch discovery health
You listen to country music
Your car is always in a state
You are untidy
You think I am a neat freak
You are too tall
You understand the stock exchange
You play chess
You think I am too gra-gra
You don't understand why I don't like your friends
You think my friends are phony
You want me to keep natural hair
You don't know how to cook
You drive too slow
You think agricultural conventions are cool
You think my fashion trade shows are boring
You secretly want to be a traditional farmer
You don't know that I know
You don't know that I don't mind, as long as I never have to lift the hoe
You think I cannot sing
You don't understand why I think you cannot sing either
You think I drive too fast
You think I have too many male friends
You don't know that they all respect you
You are not my type
You don't like fish
You don't like Lagos
You want me to come and live in Enugu
You don't know that I have already decided to come with you
You don't know that I am messing with you
You don't know how much I love you
So, even though you are not my type
Yes, I will marry you



gra-gra : agressive

My version

You are not my type because
You don't like to read
You are too close to your mother
You watch Flavor Flave (NO, NO)
You are untidy
you see you are not my type
So, Look for someone else

Queen of My Castle said...

LOL @ Allied.

You find neutral grounds in the similarities, right?

Okay, so maybe I am reading too much into this, but does this mean that you are engaged? I'm just trying to find some clarity. LOL

Loving 14th and Serenity, BTW

"Nna, you are making an ibo boy restless... Instead of 306 words, abeg, next time, just say "yes", biko nnu?

All the rest is just, em, details"

Parakeet said...

You dont want kids?...eh gurl, you different. So you will marry Mr not your type. You're even more intriguing...

naijalines said...

No be by force to marry!!!! Although the heart wants what the heart wants, dammit!

Mocha said...

*rolling eyes* enough already..if this is about you Cat; then ANOTHER wedding?? really??

kinda reminds me of the "Miranda doing the pros & cons" scene from the Sex & The City movie.
At the end of the day; its the things you cant put into words that make up your mind for you..the things that dont..CANT make it onto that list.
