a day with the breeze...

i've been grumpy these couple of days, its that time of the month when my emotions go stark raving mad, and i behave like an emotional basket case.
i cry most of the day either from the physical pain of cramps or the emotional pain of wanting someone to love or give me a baby(yes i'm that crazy), or the spiritual pain of nothing...
the best thing about this times in my life is that i feel most comfty with my body....i take a hot bath, and in the steamed up bath i stand in front of the mirror, and just love me, take deep breaths and smile ... plug my ipod to the speakers and start doing what i do best...flexing my flexes and damning the pain signals my leg sends me, i dance my heart out, wind and grind and bounce and snap and pop...

so i stepped out of the office this afternoon feeling preeeeeeeety and girllllly and free like the breeze in my black dolly dress, which i so love, its got the corporate look, sort of like a lil' girl playing dress up,watever... i had lunch delivered to me so decided to take a stroll down my office street to work it out,and same time indulge in the pleasure of being a bonafide worker, in the midst of bankers and the other busy people walking fast and driving fast to meet up with appointments, i was in my own wall street...and then...the breeze decided to be as hearty as i was, like a buddy,take a stroll with me since i claimed to be feeling like it,there it goes blowing my dress right up, like it was saying to me 'lets play buddy honey'...thank God for quick reflexes, i'm pretty sure a bit of black lace was revealed to a bunch of em' fellas....i knew enough to quietly walk back to the office, hands firmly holding my dress down as the breeze continued to laugh and play and try to be hearty with me....like i actually cared about it...crap!

  1. Hi, I like your blog.
    Although it took some getting used too.
    I have never seen so much pink one page.
    Need to go to Specsavers.
    Weird how you feel pretty at that time of the month.
    Most girls feel like wearing maternity clothes or is it just me.
    I thought it was scorching hot in Nigeria and the word breeze is rarely used.
    Like I said before luff dee blogz.

  2. Wow. I agree with hengish. U actually feel pretty durig those times. Interesting.
    Me, I consider myself lucky, cos i feel NOTHING at all. Or maybe I just dont believe all that PMS hype. Or something.

    LOLZ at the flying dress though! Nothing like a little reality check to kill one's good mood.

    @ hengi

    lol' at the pink war...couldnt help it, and i think its cute, like lil' girl cute.
    yeah, i used to feel like maternity wears too b4, but suddenly its more like 'bringing sexyback'...weird huh.
    and no, its not scorching hot, its the harmattan season, so it gets pretty cold and windy, but lagos has been rainy and windy.

  4. True pink is a cute colour.
    I am sure if you had a baby girl you will dress her in pink 24/7 lol.
    True I haven't been to Lagos in a minute but I heard it's really really hot in Nigeria.

    @ Ondychic- You are so lucky. I can't do anything when it's that time of the month. All I want to do is rip someone's head off so they can bask in the pain like I am. Maybe positive thinking is the way forward, so here it goes.

    I REFUSE TO BELIEVE IN THE MYTH CALLED PMS.

    Lol@ wall street, I actually believed you as it is not uncommon for financial services to have their own territory.
