The Little Things in Love are the Sweetest

I saw this on a friend’s page and just knew I had
to share it since it seems we had been talking
about cheating and marriages gone bad for the
past few days. Some of us indeed, like the guy
in the story below, continue to get it wrong.
Enjoy reading this and do have a splendid time
with that special one in your life this Friday and
My name is Dayo. I’m a typical Nigerian guy
and I cherish my Fridays a lot; I get to hang
out with the sickest guys every Friday night
and secondly, It’s another escape from my
nagging and boring wife. I get confused
sometimes on whether she’s my mother or
my wife. Don’t get it twisted; I love her
pieces. It just gets complicated; like I wish
we never got married…marriage has turned
her into something that doesn’t amuse me. I
wish she was still the adventurous,
charming, high spirited lady I dated for five
A lot of people say its unethical for married
guys to be found in a club, but I wish
everyone won’t be too quick to judge and
understand that people look for fun to run
away from their problems; they just want to
breathe, like me.
I forgot to say that I work in Guarantee Trust
Bank along Lekki, I love my job and my job
loves me, maybe its because I’m the senior
banking officer. Lol. This particular
morning, a lady breezed into my office. My
heart raced faster because I had not sighted
anything this beautiful in a long while. She
wasn’t the typical slender Barbie, in fact, she
was a bit chubby but her smile, cuteness
and…I was tripped.
“Hi Good morning! Your ATM has swallowed
my card!” She laughed, unlike a typical
customer that would ram you.
I just tried to form Boss laughter…
“Good morning, You know what? I’d
personally make sure they get it out for you,
but not today. Can you wait till Monday?” I
“GTB shaaa! OK, can I just drop my number
so you could call me up or just text when its
ready so I don’t come twice? Please? My
name is Nancy” She blinked her eyes in a
funny way.
“Sure” I smiled
We exchanged numbers. What a lucky
So it was 10:00pm and I headed to the club…
as usual my friends were chilling for me. My
wife had called a couple of times, I just
ignored it. She knows I’m never home
Friday nights.
“Look at you!” I heard someone say. I raised
my head and it was the Look at you!” I heard
someone say. I raised my head and it was the
ATM lady-Nancy.
“Wow, look at you too!” I was surprised to
see her but I was happy I didn’t have to wait
till Monday to see her again.
“Happy Friday!” She screamed because of
the noise, “Wanna dance?”
I didn’t even have the chance to answer, she
already pulled me to dance floor. I really
suck at dancing but she helped me; she was
a great dancer! I had fun! At some point we
decided to go to a private area and we
talked, ranging from work, business to
personal life. I tried to hide my ring as much
as possible, I certainly didn’t want this to end
“You are a really wonderful lady. You are so
interesting…any guy would want to be with
you all day” I said.
“I wasn’t always like this but I have learned
the hard way that life is just too short to be
sad” she sang
Then her phone rang…
“Hey baby! Yeah I’m at the private lounge,
I’d like you to meet someone…alright boo”
she talked excitedly as usual.
I was in shock until this tall handsome man
walks up to her and kisses her.
“You were late. Meet Dayo; I met him this
morning, he’s helping with your ATM I told
you got swallowed and Dayo this is my B to
the O-O,” she laughed “Meet my husband
Kolade, we only come here to dance every
fortnight Friday; away from work, stress and
“Wow, a pleasure” I managed to shake him
Then she stood now excitedly holding her
husband’s arms.
“Why don’t we invite Dayo for Mimi’s 16th
birthday tomorrow?” Her husband said
They have kids too? How long have they
been married and they look like a couple
just dating!
“Silly me, please come for my second
daughter’s 16th tomorrow. It would be an
honor” She brought out an I.V from her
purse. I began to feel so ashamed of myself…
this was another guy like me, getting it right
with one woman.
I collected the I.V and promised to be there.
“See you tomorrow! Have you had
something to eat Kolade?” she talked and
dragged her husband along.
They left and I kept staring atat the thin air
like I had seen a ghost. They come just to
dance together every fortnight Fridays? Why
didn’t I think of that! Temi loves to dance…
she also likes long walks, she loves to talk…
she loves jazz music, there’s this vivid
picture I have of me putting her hand on my
chest when we danced at a jazz club on our
first year anniversary…I found myself typing
all the things I knew Temi loved to do on my
Ipad and I realized I had denied her of all…I
had made her the old woman she acts.
What the hell was I doing here! I didn’t even
tell my friends goodbye, I walked out of the
club into my Jaguar. Temi’s call came
through and I picked at first ring.
“Temi?” My heart raced
“I know you are not coming home…”
“I am, stay up so we can gist. Been a while” I
decided to do everything on that list and to
even add many more for the rest of my
lifetime with her.
“Are you alright?” She was shocked I
“And I’d like us to go for a birthday party
tomorrow. I want you to meet this amazing
“You sound different Dayo”
“Maybe I’m different”
“Don’t say it! don’t say it! when you come we
will gist very well” she laughed
She laughed!!! In just that laughter that I
hadn’t heard in a while, she sounded like the
lady I married six years ago…
Dear reader,
I wrote this natural piece just to remind us
that creating memorable moments with our
partner matters. Do you know that little
things are the sweetest things? Just creating
time to gist and laugh with your partner,
having a day in the week that’s exclusively
for you both-No friends or kids allowed.
Lady, when last have you told your partner
he is so darn hot? Guy! When last have you
told your lady she is the sweetest thing?
When last have whispered ‘Thank you’?
When last have you been quick to say ‘I’m
Do you even have a clue on what your
partner loves to do?
When you ignore little things, they are the
little pieces of rocks that build up to become
a mountain you can’t easily break down.
Pay attention to little things, believe that
they work and experience new bliss!
Yours Truly, Lowla Dee.[Source]
