When my girl called me this morning that she had received a promise ring all I did was to shout, I didn’t know why, but it felt like the right thing to do.

She gave the rundown of how the event went down, she could not talk, she was full of excitement, and can u blame her? Aww am so happy for her, one of my favorite girls in the world and she sure deserves it.

This whole thing made me reminisce of all the good old days planning in my little room what to do and how to do it.

My Plan
I have to be asked on one knee and preferably in a coffee shop so all the girls would be envious.

A diamond ring won’t be bad (plenty carats oh). For years I have rehearsed my lines and even what the guy would say, it’s amazing how I don’t remember all that because of the stress work puts on me,(so we all say, liars!)

“Small girls are young”, my marriage proposal speech is to be like Uncle Atta’s acceptance speech, who in the world would say that???

Strange all the fantasies we have of our wedding and proposal nights. I say ladies are the best interpretations in the world as well as the best graphic designers, we know where every color would be on that day, the two dominant ones, now some even prefer three.

The dinner arrangements, the gift table and of course the menu which is usually updated as the world changes.

As career women, as we prefer to be called, we have it tucked in our “medullar oblumghata ” (somewhere), hehehe well some do forget, that is the 40 something’s who have no hopes for wedding bliss………..pls no one should attack me oh
