He said: “Okay. I was wrong. You are right.”
I said: “Sometimes you make me so arghhhhh. I can never truly know what your opinion is if you are always going to agree with me. Are you always going to be like this?”
He said: “Oh, but it’s a matured way of quickly conceding what you want, just to increase the peace”
I said: “Yeah, but you are not communicating. I don’t understand you and it is annoying. I will eventually explode on you one of these days. You agree with me to avoid any clash. I hate it.”
Any other bits of the conversation before and after, I shall not disclose to you. Scratch that…every Nigerian has a price, so the bid has started. You can apply right here.
It is good to be back after the long break I took. It wasn’t my fault I was absent. Supernatural powers and forces that be, where at work (typical Nigerian statement). But if I were to put the blame on something, it will be this
- The public holiday
- MTN’s crappy Blackberry Internet Service (and to think they are the best we have out there).
- Lack of inspiration and
- 4. Sheer laziness
I know I wasn’t missed but frankly speaking I don’t care. And in case you are wondering, I am not biased when it comes to sexes, if the ‘he’ character in the conversation doesn’t fit your imagination, you can always substitute it for a ‘she’ and vice versa.
My take on the conversation is, one party always seeks to avoid confrontation, because the party is either scared of how the other party might react or just wants peace. Therefore the resolve to do just about anything escape it. Talk about gulping down them killer pineapples.
Now, this is between you and me. The truth is that, on both sides, tension and hurt begin to grow. And like a parasite it eats away the fun, joy and happiness that could have been developed.
The human spirit is designed by the Great one to react once it has reached breaking point. If you look through history, there are marks on the sands of time. The revolution in France was sparked up because the people where pushed until they could take it no more and then war….same with the folks in Libya, Egypt and so on.
The point is, one or both parties will eventually cave in and the aftermath is unimaginable. Yeah same here, I usually don’t like what I see in cases like that.
Do I have a solution to this? The answer is quite obvious, but if you haven’t figured it out, check me up tomorrow, I might have something for you then.
