“I Can’t believe this is all happening so soon. I was thinking I would be getting married in about 3 years time” Tola said with a timid smile
“I sure can’t allow a woman of your kind pass me by. Throw all your fear away love, I know people say lots of things about marriage that can get one scared, I was scared at some point too, but baby, this is our world. We would make it what we want it to be. I promise to love and stand by you all the way” Tejumola replied as he massaged Tola’s forehead with a soft kiss. He then pulled her gently into his arms and hugged her.
“When do you think we should go shopping?” Tejumola asked.
“Whatever day you choose is fine by me TJ” she replied and she broke the hug and made for her blackberry.
“You and this your phone. I’m jealous oh…you are just too addicted. Who are you chatting with while am here. We have few minutes to spend together before I leave for the airport. Please drop this phone.” Tejumola said in a passive and persuasive tone.
“Baby I’m not chatting, I’m on Twitter, checking my mentions. Who would I be chatting with when you are here?” She said while still focused on her phone.
Tejumola sits opposite her, watching how engrossed she was with the phone with so much smile on her face
“I should open a twitter account to see what’s making my woman smile this much not minding my presence. Whenever she picks up this phone, its twitter.” TJ Thought…
“My flight is for 7pm and that’s 2 hours from now, we should head to the airport. Don’t want to miss my flight” Tejumola said.
“Yes love, I’ll be done in a minute” Tola said, finally looking up to give Tejumola a plea look.
Tola posted some tweets as fast as possible
“Can’t believe this is happening, I love my man”
“You all will be invited, don’t worry”
“I’m so glad my man isn’t part of this twitter people…can’t deal”
Beaming with so much Joy, she exits twitter, got set to drop Tejumola off at the airport.
It was a sweet ride as usual with plenty gist, teasing and comment on almost everything and anything they could see.
Tejumola boarded his flight while Tola drove back home.
Tejumola called immediately he settled in the hotel room. They talked for a while then Teju asked “what will you be doing before sleep gets you?”
“I’ll just tweet a bit, I’m already feeling sleepy” Tola replied
“Okay love, I’ll talk to you in the morning before the meeting. I love you baby”
“I love you more boo” Tejumola hung up
He reached for his phone then searched for twitter on google, he followed the first result and opened an account. Just like every newbies on twitter, he had no idea of how twitter works and wasn’t going to ask Tola. He wanted to surprise her with a full knowledge of how twitter works when next they see.
“I have google here, I should be able to get whatever information I want online, twitter won’t be an exception”
He searched for “how twitter works” and trust the search engine, he got all kind of tutorial on how twitter works. From videos to written. He learnt what followers and following is, what the @ sign is used for, the hashtag, what it means for a thing to trend and all. Tejumola is a very intelligent man, so it took him about 20minutes to fully understand all these
“Now I should relax with this twitter thingy before going to bed too, Tola won’t believe I now have a twitter account”
Knowing he has no followers or following, he went straight to the trend icon, saw different trending topics.
Being an Arsenal fan, he clicked on #Arsenal, read all through the tweets, at these point he was really laughing out loud.
“No wonder Tola is so addicted to this twitter thing”
He saw other trending topics, just then he saw one Trend that changed his life forever “#twitpicyourCleavage”……… He went through the tweets, enlarged pictures. With his hormones roaring, so many things were going through his mind and organs at the same time.
Just as he opened the fifth picture….it was … It was… “Tola!” TJ Screamed.. “DaF****”. Unfortunately, Tola didn’t understand the word “CLEAVAGE”, she had her face, boobs and tummy trending……..
