Meeting his tribe. The never-ending line of Africans.
To be honest with you meeting a lot of African people is the usual around these parts. (In my cowboy voice)
Ever since I’ve been married to my husband, Africans have been dropping out of doors, windows, closets, and even my bathroom no pun intended. Lol
I know this sounds extravagant and extra but I’ve met at least 40 or more Africans. And this was within the first two months of being married. Even before I met the tribe. Or at least a quarter of the tribe from what I’m told.
I am privileged to be married into a culture that celebrate everything in life. So every weekend something is being celebrated. Parties, events, and meetings make up a lot of our social life.
So when we were invited to a big event I was sure that it would be the usual. My bad dawg…
You guys know I can dress and beat my face if not to the Gods then at least to the minor Gods. So my exterior is always prepared when we attend events. But I was really unprepared for the amount of people at this event. It felt like thousands of people but it was more like a couple of hundreds. Wow!
I didn’t know my husband was so well liked as everyone hugged and caught up with him. Or that this was his element and he would be so laid-back. I had never seen him so sociable and talkative in our whole relationship. I really cannot describe with just a couple of words what he was like so I’ll save it for another blog.
I didn’t have time to be scared or even get nervous everything and everyone was going so fast. It was just a lot of people all at once.
So the moment my husband realized something was off. He came to me and whispered in my ear that we were going outside that very moment. For the first time in history I was overwhelmed. Believe it or not that has never happened at the airport.
As soon as we were alone he ask what happened and I told him it’s a lot of people. He laughed and stated wait until the wedding. Then he kissed me and said “I love you and you keep on surprising me. I didn’t expect that you would react this way. Not the woman who can talk to anyone.”
Just then I remembered who I was and not who I pretend to be. You see that a lot of these events I’ve been trying to act a part, be the perfect wife, always on professional mode. So now I had no time to play a part I just had to be me. Crazy, talkative, very sociable, funny me. It helped that after that my husband was very protective of me so everywhere I went he was not far.
I realize that if I had to choose to be happy with my husband and never go shopping for clothes or shoes again? I would choose my husband. Now make-up, let me think about it lol. Hey you guys we didn’t learn how to fly in a day. I’m still working on my shopping habits it just takes time. You guys just got to stay tune to see what happens, anyways I’ll talk to you later.
