Size 0...Mini Cougar!!!
How's everyone doing? Hope gud! Another week is slowing coming to an end again. It seems like this year has been going by sooo fast. Which day did August start here and we're all ready almost mid way. Thanks to everyone who read, or commented on my last post. I'm normally very, very hesistant about putting family 'ish on here but at that point in time...I jst needed an outlet. And u guys are my go to people. The whole matter tire me sef...I have tried to do UnitedNations (as My Luv calls it) and get them to iron things out. But I think when they are both ready, and in their own time they both say what's on their minds. The thing is when u push someone and they dnt retaliate, and you keep pushing, and pushing, and pushing...there's going to come that day when they'll just say they've had enough. Where they say am silent, but am no fool...and that's the point where Momsie is at.
Thanks again for all ur comments and words of encouragement. Oga Roc why did u delete ur comment na...I had already read it, went back to look for it and *poof* it was gone. :( I don't like o.
So on Saturday, I went to see G. I Joe!!! Hmmm...hmmm...hmmm...Channing Tatum is a hottie!!! Totally loved the movie. The gbish gbish gbish was plenty, but hey its summer we dnt need movies that'll makes us cry, or get us thinking and analyzing...we just want a fun movie and that's what it is. So, after the movie, I went to do a lil' bit of shopping, on my way back to the car o, I encounter a young fella and the following convo ensued; Let's call him YF (Young Fella).
Scene: Me walking out a store and behind me are 3 guys, who I ddn't even pay attention to due to my frustration (mre on that later).
YF: Excuse me... Excuse me Miss...
Me: (Turns around, looks at the guy and continued walking...)
YF: Excuse me Miss, I dnt mean no disrespect, I jst wanna talk to you...
Me: (Still walking...and now the guy is walking beside me but at a gud distance) Wat do u wanna talk to me about?
YF: How old are you Miss?
Me: (Raised eyebrow) ...How old are you?!!!
YF: I'm 18...How old are you? Me: (laughter)...Too young for me dear.
Me: Yup...I think your friends are waiting
YF: They are not my friends, they are my peers
Me: (In my head...ummm ok, but how does that concern me!)...Ok, well have a good day.
YF: Thank you, you too.
My people of blogsville, see this small boy wan turn me to Mini Cougar!Lol...I know I dnt look my age sha o, but haba! But I act my age naaa....my mannerisms are not of an 18yr old biko. Oh well, I take solace in the fact that I shall age gracefully...lol.
Ehen! so the reason why I was walking out of the store frustrated is dis: Is it a crime to be a size 0/XXS/XS...see wahala. Shopping is supposed to be fun and exciting , but no be so oo.I walk into a shop, see something that I like only to discover one of two things:
-It's either they've run out of my size
-The so called "0 or XS/XXS" is really a size 2 or 4.
Is it that all the petite/small figured people go shopping when the store opens abi wetin? Hw come na those sizes dey quick disappear? Meanwhile, I dnt see alot of people of that size walking around, so who is buying the clothes naaa? And why are these stores lying with their sizez claiming its an XS when we both knw its not...who do they think they are helping?
I used to wear XS in Express shirts and they were a perfect fit...only for last year I noticed it ddn't fit again. So I approached the Store Manager and asked o, they guy said they started cutting the sizes bigger...say whhaaat???!!! Where am I supposed to find shirt for work naa? Even the so called special petite sizes at GAP dnt fit!!! But on a more serious note its really frustrating and expensive to have to spend money buying something and then spend extra money to give Obioma (tailor) to adjust the cloth...sometimes its not worth it becos its almost double the price. It really sucks.
Everytime I walk into H&M, Forever21, Express, and co and just look at things I love but cnt have...Please its not a crime to be small in size, we are not anorexic or suffering from any disorder...na as Baba God take make us, dnt mke us feel bad about our bodies and size biko.
Ok this post is long sha oo...Sorry guys! But I love y'all, jst needed to vent, I know y'all understand.
Talk to you soon,
