One of those irritating memories...

I was going to get the keys to my new apartment and I was grining from ear to ear. You said you knew where the office was and offered to go with me there. I did not mind, I was in a good mood. When we got to the office, you found a spot in a corner and stood there.

Just as I finished talking with the lady behind the computer, I noticed three other people waving at me. I knew them, they were friends of friends. I was excited about my keys and I must have infected them with my enthusiasm because soon enough, we were all in very high spirits. But you just stood, in the corner.

I beckoned at you with my eyes, but you did not come. Then I waved you over but still, you were standing there. Finally, we all just walked over to you and they introduced themselves.

We left them there and as we opened the door to leave the office, one of them blew me a kiss. I blew a kiss right back!

You were quiet on the way back. I asked you what was wrong. You said there was a part of me that I did not show you. The part that was only reserved for my friends. You said I was bubbly and happy with my friends but not with you. You said you did not understand why I could not be that fun when it was just two of us.

I did not want to be in a bad mood so I ignored all that I heard. Instead, I tried to link my hands in yours but you snatched your hand away.

I began to feel a dark cloud coming over my head. The more I looked at you, the angrier I got. The more I looked at you sitting opposite me, the madder I got. You began to irritate me. Your round head, your eye glasses, your k legs, your briefcase, everything about you began to disgust me.

Then you asked again, "why can't you be like that with me?"

And I replied "and you were just standing there..."

"What?"

Of everything that disgusted me about you at that very moment, the most disgusting was how you just stood there, in that corner. Everybody else was looking over at you, waving and smiling...but you just stood there...like a damn fool.

Breathe, Waffy, breathe..

Okay so you're angry, but maybe you should have paid some attention to the "..why can't you be like that with me?"

Perhaps it was genuinely felt and needed you to address it?

But that's just me talking..

@ anengitefa: lol. I promise you, this one was a real fool oh. Its been many months now but still this memory irritates the crap out of me.

and I couldn't be like that with him because we had NOTHING in common.

And I did address it. I told him he gats to go.

I dont know why your post made me laugh....he just stood there with his round head, and klegs.lmao! Kai u can yab peesin oh.... well its a good thing he was bounced....maybe he couldnt bring out that part of u when he was alone with u

We bring out stuff about each other, so it might not be about you being that way with him, but him also trying to make you like that with him.

Sister girl, why are u bringing up the past,if he wants to see u like dat he should have the joined the fun, which is wat friends of friends did for them to get that kind of response from u. The reason y u aren't like dat with him is because he is always standing in corners and seeking all the attention, by the way how long did u knw him for before that statement was made?

Waffarian said...

Sisi Yemmie: Yeah, it was a relief. He was getting to be a burden...lol.

Myne whitman: I wished he could bring out something else than irritation in me, abeg.

Long sufferer: I don't know why I remembered that jare. Its just that picture of him in that damn corner. Its one of those things that lingers...

and oh, he did not know me that well, I can say. He had never seen me with people before cos he never wanted to meet my friends even though I invited him severally. In fact, he actually never showed up for invitations even when he said he would! and he did not want to do anything, really. I still suspect he must have had a family or something cos he was really fishy...

I was going to say what Anengiyefa said but I see that she beat me to it and you have responded to the comment too.

My take is that you can't get along with everyone the same way. We all relate to people in different ways depending on who they are with us.

Lol. Sorry bout that. Isn't it funny how we like someone one day, then you notice something you can't tolerate in them and you totally switch off?

Erase and replace jare. I am the same with a bf and gfs. The only diff is I get to swap spit with bf. If you dont inspire me to be myself - share blog gist, crack dry jokes.....I shall move on, without you.
