Why April 28th?
Firstly, This day marks the birth of a wonderful, caring and loving woman, who birthed someone special;
Someone very Beautiful, bold, generous, full of life and love, an embodiment of gifts and talent.”PS, her Egusi soup game is on point”
Madam I sometimes call her, with her infectious smiles and all of her naughtiness, madam who listens to me and respects me in her own funny way, someone that sticks no matter what, Someone with whom I share some of the best memories of my university days and ongoing. She’s my oldest university pal or so she says, she is my special special friend, just so we skip all the names that we have been called .
A friend that I have had the most quarrels in my life with and when I mean most, I mean numerous quarrels which she most of the time starts. Someone i have received a lot of comments, shades and threats for her.Someone whom my friendship with her has been threatened more times than i can remember, a friendship that hasn’t been without hurt, arguments, tears “Ps,I didn’t do the crying”, alot of joy and fun, she’s someone I don’t mess with.
She is that kind of friend nothing important in life happens without letting me know, whatever it is. Thanks for the trust babe. When I said we have some of the best memories, I was entirely honest. Loads of them both bad and good, from our pre-degree days where she would never let me and my phone be, to us being admitted to the same department even though she wanted another course to study, a sign of the start of more trouble which I have enjoyed I must add, our spaghetti and indomie days, the one she never cooks, who would forget being threatened by cultist and almost starting a cultist rivalry just because I was walking with a fine girl,
the Lot of our late nights, settling issues, gisting, strolling and all of her marriage corny gists.”PS not to me oo” and so many more.
She once said to me that she would want me to be her child’s Godfather and we laughed about it jokingly but that meant alot to me, more than she could possibly fathom because to an extent, She sees this so called filled with confusion, quarelling and sweet friendship as my guys would call it as something that shouldn’t end anytime soon but should go beyond the stage we currently are, which I find very kind and special.
But at the end of the day, as grown up folks will say about high school friendships and “sometimes” even extend to college friendships is that once you are done and you go out of the gate, you begin a new chapter of your life and most of the things learnt and people you meet will not follow behind.
That is why on this day April 28th, I wish and pray for you dear, all of your heart desires and wishes but something I pray so passionately for even as much as all i pray for you is that I carry you along as much as i can, and that this day, April 28th is one day that as the years, centuries, ages and as life in general passes with all of its craps and joys, is that i never ever forget this day, its significance and importance to me and by this, I mean you.
Happy birthday girl, lots of love.😍
