DEAR CHILD BY ABIMBOLA ADEBAYO

Hello folks. I have Abimbola Adebayo, one of my wonderfully naughty friends on here today. He is an incurable bachelor who told me he wrote a letter to one of the children he has not yet allowed to come strut their stuff here. Please enjoy reading. Comments would be greatly appreciated

This letter is dedicated to Damilola Adedeji for inspiring me to write.
Dear Child, 
I have no doubt that you are fine. I based this on the fact that there is no terrorism or wickedness of any sort where you presently are. I am very sure also that your meals get served on time. You are still in the best place so I have no worries about your feeding, at least for now. 

Since I got here, I cannot remember what sort of meal my friends and I took while we waited to cross the divide to this place some decades ago. My friends ( Seye, Lekan, Tosin, Damilola, Tolu and a whole lot of us) have not had manna since we came here, so get well nourished before I call you to come down here.

I should sound you a note of caution that you cannot call all these friends of mine by their name when you finally join us. Even for unrepentant bachelors like Seye, you will call them ‘Daddy’ because we lay strong emphasis on culture and respect in this part of the world where your potential mother and I live. I used the word ‘potential’ because I am not sure if have met her yet.

I hear you have been grumbling about the fact that you are not strutting your stuff here yet.(Sigh heavily) I would be sincere, it was never in my plans to delay your coming. In fact, my plan was that by now one or two others would have joined you.

It is not your business but I should let you know I intend having you and just two others. My reasons for that decision would be known when you get here.

The plan I had before was to raise you with a wonderful lady, who unfortunately deserted ship before we could get offshore. We both had good, well-mapped out plans for you guys to live a fun and fulfilled life with us as family but as the saying goes “man proposes while God disposes”. Our parting was and even still a major heart break for me.

I am presently in the ‘market’, still looking out for a good mother for you guys and once I get one, be sure that I will summon you. 

After our break-up, a friend introduced me to something called “Rebound Dating” but rebound did not work for me so your coming may be delayed. 

Moreover, finding a good mother for you and wife for my humble self nowadays seems like chasing after wind this days. Women want God fearing men but when you take them inside the room and start talking about the gospel of Our Lord Jesus Christ then they complain of “dulling them”(whatever that means).

I believe however that there is never a time or place for true love. It happens accidentally, in a heartbeat, in a single flashing. I am on the lookout for that and will call for you as soon as that happens.

Enjoy the Garden of Eden and other side attractions while I prepare the ground for you. I love you already, and I await when you will arrive and like we all do here now, I’ll show you off on Facebook and other social networks.

Till I pen you another of these letters, have a swell time.

  14. Bigg Richie says:

    You’re just a typical Nigerian with a full dose of the ‘Adamic Nature’, trying to the push the blame on the mother of the unborn child when you know a lot of your peers are living with their children (legal or illegal). Good write-up but please act fast because the mother is somewhere making same excuse too.

    Yours truly,
    A friend that cares (for the unborn child)
