I tried hard, overcame temptations and found favour when i got involved with Mirabel (The President’s Daughter). Mum: Okay sir Dad: I still have a meeting tomorrow morning, so i dunno if i would be able to come tomorrow Mum: Hhmmm… As soon as she closed the door behind her, i grabbed the hollandia and start sucking it from its container. I freezed immediately with my eyes wide opened facing her speechlessly. I didn’t know what to say or do, i slowly dropped the yoghurt Mirabel: Hhmmm… He his the kind of father that children would want to be around, he always bring goodies from his trip. He doesn’t shout out of anger, he provides every needs of the family. Mummy u are back Mum: Yes, hmmmm and I guess you’re fine now Me: Yes ma, the Doctor have discharged me already Mum: What did he say? Referring to Mirabel Mirabel: Yes ma Mum: Thank u my daughter, God bless u Mirabel: Thank u ma,,, where is Nancy?
I still find them somewhat juvenile and simplistic.I read the 100 questions and liked most of them (actually, more than the first time I skimmed the book a few years back).I felt like they really could help a couple feel out their dynamics and know where they stand on potentially all the important issues that exist in life in order to hopefully move forwards with clarity, respect and kindness (a word she accentuated throughout).I found them to be a little silly, maybe too western?As I read them I was reminded of a book I was given when I was in a promising relationship called The Hard Questions: 100 Questions to Ask Before You Say “I Do.” by Susan Piver. I found that it spoke to me almost perfectly as she voiced the different concerns she personally had that brought her to discuss very real, often difficult, questions with the man she loves before she felt ready to marry him.
