She’s the sweetest, kindest, most caring person ever. I did not always think that though. Not when she used to store two rods in her car, one for me and the other for my sister. Thanks to my sister’s influence they were in use frequently. But I thank God that she was tough on us (I wouldn’t tell her this though) because we turned out pretty good, I think.

These days I can call her my friend. We can talk about everything and anything. Most times conversations with her go something like this:

“You don’t mean to tell me you are still single”.

This after she has bullied me into telling her about all the crushes, flirtations and boyfriends I have had. I did not tell her about the time I was dumped by someone I wasn’t even dating and had known for an aggregate of two days. I have never understood that myself.

“Yes I am, mum. I told you I would tell you when am not. I’m still young”

“And there is no one, no one at all!”

I shake my head at this point and start looking for an escape point.

“You know you don’t have to bring the one you are getting married to, even the others I don’t mind meeting”

This time I agree just so we could drop the subject. Then that is when she remembers I had said I would never get married. Seriously! I was still a teenager and my boyfriend (ok ex-boyfriend by then) had been acting like a moron, of course I thought all men were pigs!

“It’s ok, there’s no rush. First concentrate on your studies and these things shall follow”

So what was with the gasping at my singlehood. It does not help much that my sister got married at the insane age of twenty one!

    Oh how I miss having that experience! All I had was “I dont ever want to see you with that boy again” and then later on “you know this is how you should treat your husband”….

    I often wonder what she thinks of them days…tried to get it out of her but she insists that it wasn’t bad….hoping you find the right one at the right time!

    […] she just tells me to leave it. I feel so guilty after that and sometimes I yield. Anyway, so she asks me questions and I pour my heart out and update her. She keeps me up till 2am at night and wakes up to make me […]
