Okay, my Computer friends and fam, this is going to be interesting.
As you can see from the title, I want to hook my mother up with someone. Now, my mom has been single for a while but she's the kind of babe that is always out having a good time. I have been threatening to find her a boytoy for a while. At first, she used to blush and dismiss it, but I think she is now considering the idea, lol!
I love my mom. She drives me nuts sometimes, but I love her and I know she needs companionship. My mother is one of those ladies you see on the wedding circuit in Naija. Gele/headtie reaching the ceiling, wearing aso ebi for all her friend's daughters/son's weddings. Bag...check. Shoes...check. Party here, party there. Serious peperempe. And, I don't mind. You see, I believe that when you have raised your children and others children as well (as is the case in most Nigerian families where everybody raises everybody's child), you deserve to enjoy retirement. So, I say, party it up mommy, but stay safe.
Anyway, I met someone I think would be good for my mommy. My family and I call him Farmer J and he owns a large farm right next door to my community. I have been stalking his farm for sometime now, trying to get an aloe vera plant. When I finally met him, I was with the boys and he took them and taught them how to feed his cows. He has quite a bit of them. The boys had so much fun, that Bomboy took to picking up huge balls of cow poop and chasing me with the stuff. *shuddering, remembering the experience*
So, yeah, the kids like him. I like him. Even my hubby likes him. And did I say Farmer J is very nice? I have seen him a few times and spoken to him on the phone quite often. He wants the kids to come by and name a baby calf that was just delivered on his farm. I think he would be good for my mom. A man who enjoys putting his hand in the dirt and being in touch with nature. Hahaha. I'm laughing so hard right now, because my mother's nickname is "Shine, Shine" if that gives you some clues, lol! My mom can't get over the fact we go camping, lol!!!!!
Farmer J's very down to earth and extremely kind and well, yeah, I think they would be a good match. Even though he runs a farm, he's an artist (has a very cool little studio that TE loves), teaches sculpture and photography at the neighborhood university and is involved in the community. Did I mention that my mother was an actress way back in the day? So, she has her artsy/creative side as well.
Now, how to hook them up? My mom is in Nigeria. She lost her passport and now needs to get a new one, plus a US visa. And, we all know that in the post-Abdulmutallab world, visas have become even harder to get. I'm hoping that given her age and extensive travel history, it won't be a problem for her. Geez, this will be the first time I have tried to hook my mommy up with anybody. There was a guy who liked her a while ago and she refused his advances because he was younger. I scoffed at her and told her to reconsider, but you know Naija babes, "How can a small boy be chasing me like this..." lol!
Ah, this post is getting far too long. I am going to get my mom in the US as soon as I can and when I do, I will introduce her to Farmer J. This is bound to be interesting....
I'll let you guys know, okay?
PS: Um, if you read this blog, happen to know who I am and happen to know who my mama is, YOU BETTER NOT TELL HER OF MY HOOKUP PLANS OH! It has to be a surprise hehehehe... And, if anybody has a responsible and charming older gentleman that they think would make a good date for my mother, I am accepting applications. Yes, oh, she too should play the field, go out on dates with other guys until she figures out which could be her boytoy, hahahaha
