I know its awkward, but baby do you watch Telemundo?
Well, when I go to a lady’s house I ask her what she watches the most, then I look out for her book shelf. And this one was a “big girl” in Lekki. Smelling nice on Paco Robanne, had a whole wardrobe full of Louboutins shoes, Ray Ban sun glasses,Tom Ford and YyesSaintLaurent perfumes, Prada shoes with matching Louis Vuitton bags but she had not even a book. Now, I’m having a problem taking her serious.
There are 3Cs that must be checked before going into a relationship (Chemistry, Core Values and Conflict resolutions pattern). So after Chemistry comes Core Value.
So I had chemistry with her. And then I remember her coming over one day to the house. She took off her shoes, we had that vibe, we decided to lay on the bare floor instead. But her lips couldn’t stop moving, I survived the shallow conversations from such a pretty face, thanks to a cold tall bottle of chardonnay we shared alongside Adele from the speakers. But she just kept talking without content. And then, noticing she had lost me to my phone, she got up and began to look around the house and then subliminally screamed, “ah ah”, you don’t have a TV. I won’t come again, as a matter of fact, I am leaving”, she said. She was expecting me to say “why”, but I said “when?”
Someone once said to me, “When a girl leaves a man with VISION for the type she sees on Telemundo TELEVISION. Soon she’ll be watching that ex with VISION in her broke “Telemundo husband’s” TELEVISION”…lol
In my line of work, I’ve met very intelligent women too, so this isn’t sexist. But our daughters needs to know and read more. Sadly, I’ve met ladies who don’t and won’t read, even if you put 7 N1500 MTN recharge card numbers in between each paragraph of a book.
Readers are Leaders.
The Pastor Mathew Oshimolowo of the church, KICC, said he was feeling arrived flying first class, and was going to fall asleep in it. But then he looked to his left, and he saw the man we today know as Dangote, awake, reading!
Oyedepo during his early days would travel and return almost empty handed to his wife, except with a bag full of books!
..Look at all of them now, successful!
Leave grace to God, by habits, success is predictable.
African’s don’t read, (well, except for bible, Linda Ikeji and Rhapsody of Realities…lol)
You are what you value.
Everytime I fly Aero, and as usual there is a delayed flight (oops), I look around the airport lobby and I notice how most Nigerians ping, listen to music, chat and sleep. And the white man always reads.
Success isn’t hard, it’s just hidden.
And you know the saying, “if you want to hide something from a black man, put it in a book!”
To make it easier, these days, it’s put in trainings!
