Just have Sense!

We stopped expecting you to be domesticated, we just pray that you are.

If that fails, we already have a plan B for that: cleaners and cooks. It’s really not a must to be prayerful, after all salvation is personal. Our Mum can also take the kids to church when I can’t. You don’t have to be rich. Wives don’t write wills in Nigeria. It’s okay if you don’t know the difference between a corner kick and a goal kick, Arsenal will still lose, anyway! (Sob) Sweetie, if you can hack through our password and fingerprint protected phones, you deserve to find whatever you kept there. We’ll even ask you to teach us. Even though we may not be able to always tell the difference, we’ve set a 2 week constant reminder on our phones: “Tell her her hair is beautiful” We don’t care much about your family name. That’s why we’re paying bride price to change it. It’s okay if you don’t know math, I have a calculator. Or if you don’t catch my jokes, I’ll tell them to my buddies over drinks. Or I’ll just laugh alone. It’s not a big deal if you can’t speak good English. Do you know who Melania Trump is? If you like, insult an army general in traffic because he didn’t give you right of way, and then call us to come and fight, we will come. Maybe not that day, but we must come. See, we really don’t ask for much o….. JUST HAVE SENSE.

I envision Hilda’s Shoulder to be a relationship park-a place you go to learn, vent and share. I have another understanding of the word relationship -I don’t think it is for people dating only. A marriage is a relationship too, and one which needs great rela- tions in the SHIP called home!
Hilda’s Shoulder is a place where we virtually hold hands like - real friends should. If you want to come anonymously...we understand ..still come! Hilda’s shoulder is here for you!
