The Hopeless Romantic

Interviewer: So tell us a little bit about what you do…

T: I’m a senior manager at a PR consulting firm. It sucks sometimes because I’m very busy and therefore have no time for important things like having a dance party in my underwear every morning till 11am. But hey! I get my kicks at the weekends.

Interviewer: But do you love your job?

T: I love my job and Lagos, Nigeria is a cool place but that doesn’t mean I can’t be obsessed with life-saving acronyms like ‘TGIF’. See, you’ll catch me getting the weekend in gear from about 3pm on a Friday because my brain shuts off at precisely 2.59 and instead starts to daydream about ice-cream, flip-flops and beach weather.  Who invented a 5-day work week anyway?!

Interviewer: I see. And what else do you do for fun?

T: Depends what ‘fun’ is to you. I have a lot of fun volunteering as a sunday school teacher on sundays. I love hanging out with my boyfriend. I enjoy my family and I enjoy seeing the look on my God-son’s face when I throw him in the air. Life should be simple.
