I Met My Hubby On Palmchat (Part 2)


You read the part one here last week.

So like I mentioned I work as a Human Resource Manager and
well my name is Bimpe Ajayi and don’t even ask ‘cause I’m not telling you how
old I am. Anyways, because my job entails managing people, I had to devise a
ways to maintain a steady two-way communication with my staff (…trust me,
emails and intranet don’t always work these day). I use instant messaging
mobile apps a lot; any of the platforms that my staff members are active, I use
it. Be it the Whatsapps, 2gos, BBMs, Wechats and I must say Palmchat (…will tell
you why in a moment).

Instant messages are hard to resist (ladies you know now);
once that beep comes in, you just kind of pick up your phone and reply almost
without thinking. So my staff can’t resist infos or notices etc I send across
to them through these platforms. As for Palmchat, I developed a personal
attachment to the platform. Remember when I said I was stuck in traffic running
late to work and had a marathon presentation to make to my boss?
I drifted mentally into a two-minute or so daydream; where I
saw myself in the arms of my new found love, Francis dancing to the slow
rhythms being played by a high life band at La Tropicana resort. He was about
kissing me; slowly closing in like on a Close Up TV commercial when…’honk,
honk’ the car behind me shattered my daydream and threw me right back into
reality. I am actually in a stupid traffic and heading late to work for a
presentation which I hope will go down well. I picked up my phone and spent
Francis a ‘Hi dear’ on Palmchat and of course he replied almost instant with
‘sweetie I stuck in traffic…bumper to bumper’
It is funny how I so clicked with Francis, I met this sweet
guy on Palmchat and sometimes it feels impossible. I didn’t say it, but why I
was running late to work that Wednesday was because I spent such a good, good
time with Francis the night before (hey, not quite what you are thinking…not
yet). It was close of work and I wasn’t minding sitting out a little while
before embracing my mattress, so I chatted up Francis on Palmchat and told him
to meet me at Radisson Blue. That was to be our second real meeting; you know,
face to face not online. Our first real date was at the Leisure Mall, Adeniran
Ogunsanya street Surulere and it wasn’t a bad one except that, you know, I
didn’t know what to expect and quite honestly, stuffs were running through my
mind like: ‘
I hope I am not making a stupid mistake leaving my house to meet
some guy I don’t know?…. I hope the mall is safe and nobody will be stalking
me or something? And I am buying my drink, no free drinks…thanks’. With all
that going through my mind, our conversation was kind of stale; it lacked
energy and was completely cautious but all the same, I could tell he was a
sincere guy. Like when he blushed (he has such cute dimples on his cheeks by
the way) and said that our meeting was his first blind date, I could tell it
was not only his first blind date but his first date…and guess what happened
next? (…seriously I can’t believe that I am living my fantasy)
