The one that got away

When you are born into a family of all girls and you are the only boy (and the last born), there are tendencies that things will get really weird for and with you. For example, unlike most guys, you become overly sensitive (whether consciously or unconsciously). Also, because of the sensitive nature, you know how to relate well with the female folk. This has its upsides and downsides.

Another thing that happens to you is that you watch all of them change last names. This can be subtly heart-wrenching. I’m generally known in my family not to show emotions (they sometimes think I don’t care) but even this hard-coated-soft-hearted-yellow-colored boy feels this one.

Most recently, on the 29th of December, 2012, this is the one that got away, my very own Adejumoke Owokade Falana.

68633_10200160535518484_1513114147_n3 more heart-wrenches to go. On a happy note, I get to collect the “idobale”1 of all the vine invaders (no harm meant *giggle*).

Food for thought:

You won’t marry your sister. Why so serious?

Life nugget:

Spend time with the people you love and let them know you love them.

NOTES:

[1] “Idobale” is the Yoruba word for prostrate. At the wedding engagement in the Yoruba culture, the intending husband prostrates before the father and mother of the bride.
