APRIL 12, 2013


After reading Myne’s post I knew, I had to get this out of my mind and system. I hope my posts aren’t monotonous.
Colleague: Thank you so much. Do have a wonderful weekend
Sykik: Thank you too, wish you same
Colleague: I guess I won’t be wrong to ask about oga and children
Sykik: no, you won’t
Colleague: you have a nice physique, I wish I was slimmer
Sykik: thank you. I am sure your husband loves you the way you are
Colleague: how many kids do you have?
Sykik: kids are not a function of your look, I am sure Oga likes you just the way you are
Colleague: no oh….he likes #lepa babes. He wants me to shed some weight
Sykik: …. (Feeling uncomfortable) it is well 
Colleague: so, I guess you have two kids right
Sykik: huh…..have a wonderful weekend
Colleague: boy and girl right, and you are this slim
Sykik:  yeah…good night
Now, I feel bad that I have deceived her into believing I have two kids. Why can’t people take the cue and mind their business…..can’t you read between the line.
Scene 2:
Colleague: Sykik…..you can’t add weight oh
Sykik: smiling….I love my #lepa levels abeg
Colleague: wait until you have children, then you will know the truth
Sykik:  abeg, free me….children or no children…I intend to maintain my stature
At first, it was “wait till you get married and someone starts oiling your engine”, now it is “wait till you have children”…
I don’t even know what I am fuming about, no….I know what I am fuming about
1.       After five years at the same level, promotion list is out and I am not on the list, after slaving so bad for this annoying institution… ………Psalm 75:6 – For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south. It is God who judges: He brings one down, He exalts another
So maybe, I should just vex for God abi……

2.       I can feel Aunty Flo from a distance…... the witch, it can’t be worse than this. I just feel like crawling into a hole right now.
I have been holding my tears since Friday, maybe I should just let it out, I hate feeling sorry for myself and that’s just what the tears are all about.
Sykik, grow up……………..life happens.

#lepa is a Nigerian slang meaning slim

  1. people dont know how to mind their business and are so damn insensitive....

    I dont know if this helps, but just remind yourself that they are asking "from a good place" and soon you will be a mum

    Hugs

    1. Thanks dear. I guess missing out on the promotion made me cranky already and then having to be boxed into answering a question I didn't want to just did it for me.

  3. Alagbara lolorun, ko ma si ohun ti ko lese - God is powerful, theres nothing He cannot do.

    I think you should cry...i cry over stuff, it reduces the anger i'm going through at that point in time :)

    As for me sha o, the presence of aunty flow does not cancel the presence of your baby, hope that makes sense?


    Stay strong.

  8. aww babe, i really feel you, i know it hurts and its okay to have a good cry, really it is ..oya take a hug, and then do what makes you happy, if you don't do retail therapy like some people i know, then you must join our own team, there is nothing, cakes, chocolates or Ice cream cannot fix... just ask Toin...

  10. I've missed a bit.... Sigh... it is well with you Sykik. You will rejoice soon. As for my promise, I'm ashamed of myself. My only excuse is lack of time as I've been carrying it around with me for months now. Like I said, I'm ashamed of myself.

    You will rejoice soon Sykik. I feel it. You will rejoice soon.

  12. Self pity? Heck no pls, Like others have said, there's therapy in tears. Plus, when we get to that place where we just break down, that to me is the best place to pour our hearts and angst on the one who does best wit it....Baba God.

    Hmm, aunty flo sha, she can be a diva like that. I keep giving her the side eye every time she shows up when unwanted...lol.

    I know ur much better now, and I'm sorry I didn't see this on time. Keep rockin (hugs)

    1. Thanks dear, I am much better. I guess this monthly visit by Aunty Flo and the promotion thingy got me real bad. Thank you so much for the encouragement.

      I should stop feeling sorry for myself jare....God has so much in store for me. All i need is to hold on to him.

    2. I have missed you Sykik and I said, no matter how busy, let me find time and visit. You have all the raw materials for a miracle, so dance and sing in the midst of your tears because your faith will make your morning come. *Hugs, hugs my dear*

      As for weight matters, abeg, just blank. I have come to a place in my life where NOBODY defines me by my weight. The people close to me know that once they start talking weight, I totally blank out the person. Whether lepa or orobo, be comfortable with you, as long as it's a healthy lepa/orobo.

      You are in a good place dearie. Just watch out.

  13. Huge hugs my darling Sykik...there is always one thing or the other that we struggle with or wish for God to do for us...but may God answer our individual prayers and keep us happy...

    keep happy

    Kisses xxx

    Ps : ignore nosy monkeys always..

  15. Hi Sykik. I see ur last blog post was April 12. Are you one of the disappearing bloggers? I have come back o, so you people should come back too, and let's make blogsville interesting once again.

    Now, I remember why I wasn't following you. How do you get to visit my blog when you are not following me, and I am not on your blogroll. I mean how do you even know when I put up a new post? Cos I know drop comments on my blog sometimes.

    Niways, I am now following you, so you'll be seeing my green light. Lol. Enjoy
