Happy Valentine's Day and an e-mail from Prof. Wole Soyinka





Orikinla is at work.
No time to even join a sweetheart at Ozone in Yaba, Lagos.
The new Igbo girl next office who said I behave more like a Yoruba man received what she asked for to make her happier. Making someone smile is enough for Valentine's Day. But I am ignoring another one who has been calling obviously to argue and quarrel over the fact that she cannot eat her cake and have it back.
I should really have time this weekend for anyone I would love to be with.

Lest I forget, today is our landlady's birthday and she sent a plate of Jollof rice with chicken, two bottles of Coca Cola and chocolate sweets.
Being born on St. Valentine's Day is something worth celebrating and I wish her Happy Valentine's Day and many more happy returns of today with longer life and more riches for the common good.
I just stepped out to give her my best wishes shaking her hand whole heartedly.
She still looks appealing in her 60s. Beautiful African mother of a black and beautiful daughter who is studying law in the UK.

The icing on the cake for me today is the e-mail from Prof. Wole Soyinka, the Nobel laureate on one of my new books.

One thing about life is you can never please everybody and my love is double-edged sword.
