It was looking good until........We've seen a long holiday in Nigeria. 4 days of Eid Kabir celebrations. Lots of rams slaughtered all over the place. Party invites. Free lunches and dinners. My schedule was tight and I loved it. Anyway a good friend of mine, who shares the same birthday week decided to have a belated birthday BBQ. It was the BBQ of the century. Friends. Food. Foolery. Funk and Alcoholic fuels. Etc I was dressed to the hilt wearing a lovely purple Kimono top (see pic below) and Jeggings. Topped off with snake skin gladiator heels and wearing a tiny necklace that read "available". Didn't think it was visible to the human eye though. Well.....Considering the older guy I was seeing casually told me over coffee that morning that he was getting married in less than 2 months to a lady 5 years younger than me, I had to think of a plan B. Bear in mind, I wasn't heart-broken (not in a million years....not even if he was the last man on earth and I was out of batteries). I was ENVIOUS! There is a difference.
Back to the crux....BBQ was going well, then i saw him across the crowd. I had seen him before. He was younger. He seemed like a greenhorn. We exchanged pleasantries etc At the end of the party he was already smitten by my friend, which was cool. He saw us off to the car and said to me
"Waoh, G...you looked very lovely today, very attractive...."
I was revelling in the compliments and blushing profusely "thanks Dante"
Before I could say another word.
He goes "You are looking really fine....like a Cougar"!
My face dropped. The world suddenly stopped for me.
