A week or so ago, Ewuraesi wrote about The Glorified Side-chick. Well me, I don’t mind being a side boo at all, and by the time I’m done, you’ll wish to be one too. Truth is, exclusivity is overrated. “I wanna be the first person she thinks of when she wakes and the last voice she hears before she sleeps.” Dude, please.
And if you haven’t dated a hot girl or a woman you’re crazy about, you po dier you’re not amang of this conversation. Because the thing naah, you don’t even like her, so if another guy comes into the picture, then good riddance.
I’m talking about the kind of woman that gets your heart to go ‘bam Bam BAM!’ just thinking that she’ll be yours for life. The kind of woman you love so much that if you saw a clearly photoshopped picture of her with some other guy po, your eyes will get teary. I don’t mind being her side boo,in fact I’d rather be her side boo than her main…if God’s the main I’m number two to.
See, I’ve thought this out waaa, if your girl is so out of sync with God that if you send her a message through Him, she’ll never hear it, you’re screwed! I mean you’re with a woman who’s committed to you and a temper, a complex and other issues that only God can deal with and your headache is being her one and only? Chaiii, deezz gguuyyy.
My friend Sam is married to one eloquent, intelligent, ambitious woman. Maame is so smart, his lawyerly skills doesn’t even win him anything…but she fears God. So he goes to her and says
“Maame, can we do intensive Bible Study this week?” She is super thrilled by that! “Thaaaatt’s my huuussbbbaanndd! Sure love”
“I’ve always been curious about the book of Esther, maybe together we’ll make more meaning of it.”
By the time they were done, points he’d failed to make intellectually, she now understood spiritually. He said to me “Ben, she can argue with me…but not God. So now my challenge is to seek His opinion on something and make that the foundation of my case. It works, always!”
But my broda, if the only voice your wife hears is Oprah’s, or Justin Timberlake’s, how will you manage?
You see, the hotter she is, the more educated and superb she is, the more your wahala if God’s not her main boo. Why? Because those things make her a bigger catch, which means more of your heart invested in her, which means more damage to you if she screws you over. The better a woman she is, the more the need for God to be her main boo.
I think a Drop Dead Gorgeous woman is like Nuclear energy. Without God, she’s the bomb at Donald Trump’s fingertips, but with God, she becomes the force that will propel you into legendary status and make life feel too short even if you live till 120. He knows her better than you ever will, get Him in the mix!
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not talking about a church worker woman, or choirister woman per se…someone who has a real personal relationship with him, those are two separate things. There are women who hide behind ‘working for God’ to be negligent wives. Those ones create an imbalance when they make their church the alibi for a wrecked home. But even someone like that you can work with if you get right with God yourself. It’s the one who doesn’t get why you need to support the church project when she needs some Brazillian woman’s hair on her head. As for that one, my broda, warchhit!
You know what the catch is? You have to be on top form with God to know His opinion on things, to know that in asking Him to intervene in a matter He will. You cant get her to come out unto the sea when you aren’t walking on it yourself.
So my broda, get a woman who loves God as much/more than you and enjoy your position as side boo. Because if you are the top dawg in the life of a woman who doesn’t see the big deal with God, start putting a will together ASAP.
PS: Can I have one of your nice watches?
PSS: The reverse of this also holds. Be the side bae to a man who loves God more.
