This was written by a dear friend and brother of mine. He’s also a very funny person! 😉 So here’s a guy’s view of 21st Century Fairy tale. His name’s Ezekiel and he likes life ‘Ezzy Ezzy’! Here it is …
Have you observed that at some certain stages in life, all or most of what you hear about is a particular thing or are particular things or people. As a child, between ages five to nine, all you hear about are -the best primary schools, the most ‘wicked’ teacher in school, the newest biscuits and candies, the newest cartoons and sometimes the most ‘wicked’ parent.
As a teenager and sometimes even the young adult, your life seems to revolve around a lot of things especially being noticed and your emotions. Today when the word ‘love’ is mentioned it takes the minds of young adults to someone (a person) and not an expression of the mind itself.
Every time the word love is mentioned, no matter where or when, Bisi feels her heart skip a beat and some warmth going around her heart. Ebuka is all Bisi thinks about, the driving around town in his car, shopping together, having ice-cream together, pecking and kissing wherever (Dear reader, Bisi and Ebuka aren’t in Nigeria else …).Ebuka seems to be the best thing that happened to Bisi and now to Bisi the true sign of love is shopping and spending and romancing. Like Bisi, many young adults think love is the shopping, spending and romancing. What if Bisi’s idea of love is right? I guess it’s only in the 21st century.
Right now, I don’t know who’s coming up tomorrow so I’ll be as surprised as you 😉 Catch you all tomorrow 😀 Check out 21st Century Fairytale I as well. 🙂
