*This is a ‘MUST READ’ for all Single and Married Sisters!
At a Single Sisters’ Conference, many beautiful and gorgeous ladies were present. While waiting for the program to start, the ladies were all seated elegantly, each one of them observing her neighbour’s physical features (you know now, ladies’ normal way of comparing their appearances with other ladies).
While doing this, the following thoughts were going through their minds.
Sister A: “How I wish I have a beautiful face like Sister B. She is so adorable plus the fact that she has a fair complexion. Wow! She looks like a goddess. Flawless beauty. If I am like this, I would be married by now, I swear! I must buy a skin toning cream o. At least, by the time I am fairer, more brothers will notice me. What now? Why is she looking at me? She must be wondering how I am coping with this dark skin”. (quickly turns her face away).
Sister B: (observes Sister A closely and thinks) “Wow! What a black beauty! Glittering like the sun. Ha ha! This Sister is ebony black, yet she is beautiful the way she is. She does not even need to buy expensive soaps or cream in order to maintain her colour. I really wish I am like her, I would be able to use any soap, cream or bath with any water without having to spend money on skin reactions. I admire this Sister’s colour sha! She must be so proud of her beautiful dark skin!”
Sister C:(looks at Sister D and admires her hair)
“Hmmmmmm! What a beautiful hair!” She thought. “And a natural one at that. Long shiny and dark! Unlike my own short and brown hair that refuses to grow longer” (she hissed within her). “I need to get a permanent wig to cover this hair abeg! It’s embarrassing me!”
Sister D: (seated close to Sister C, looks at Sister C’s hair with great admiration) “Wow! What a beautiful hair style! What do they normally call this hairstyle o? I think Anita Pecker or something like that, it looks so good on her… I need to cut my hair and dye it to make it a bit brown. This Sister’s hair is gorgeous. What is the essence of my own long hair with loads of dandruff underneath? My scalp embarrasses me anytime I go to the salon.” She thought. “Can I take a picture with you please?” Sister D asks Sister C. ‘Your hair is beautiful!’ She added.
Sister C: “Are you talking to me?
SISTER D: “Oh yeah! Sure, you are the one I am talking to. I am sorry to bother you. Please I need a picture of you. I love your hairstyle.”
SISTER C: (Her face lighting up, smiles slightly). ‘Oh No, not at all! That won’t be a problem. Let’s take a shot.’
SISTER D: ‘Okay, thanks.’
(They took pictures with Sister D’s camera and settled back on their seats).
After she was seated, Sis C’s face started glowing, her confidence returns to her. She stood up from her seat, strolled out of the hall to take in some fresh air, walking with her shoulders high, with a renewed esteem. Just a little compliment from Sis. D restored her self confidence.
At the far corner of the hall, two other sisters sat next to each other. They are actually co-workers at a Private Secondary School in town. They had been invited to the programme by a colleague of theirs. The following conversation took place between them.
SISTER A: Have you seen Sandra recently?
SISTER B: No. Why did you ask?
SISTER A: “I heard she now sells a kind of slimming tea that will give one a perfect slim shape.”
SISTER B: Are you for real? Let me quickly call her. I need it so badly. (Searches through her bag for her phone).
SISTER A: Hey! Take it easy. Not so fast, I told you first remember? So do not double cross me.
SISTER B: Who cares about who tells who first and what difference does it make if I call her first? All I care for right now is to become a ‘lepa straight.’ Na wetin dey reign now be that. Jesus I need help oh!
(Not too far from where Sis. A and B were seated was Sis. C, a tall slim lady in her late twenties. She sat on her chair with her legs crossed, looking at Sis A and B where they were seated though not able to hear what they were saying. She was admiring the nice outfits they had on).
SISTER C: (Deep in thought). ‘Shebi these are human beings, the clothes they put on sits perfectly on their skins like they were born with it. Nice hips, adequate busts, hot legs, all in the right proportion. Everything is just so perfect. Nawa o. Unlike me, despite all the rich food and multivitamin capsules that I keep taking just to add more flesh, all na lie! After I finish dressing up, I will still look like a dress hanger. No bust, no hips, nothing to make a dress look good on one…
SISTER B: (taps SIS. A). ‘Look at that lady at the row next to us (referring to Sis. C), by the time we finish taking that slimming tea, our shapes will look exactly like hers.’
SISTER A: Yes oh! I can’t wait
‘Good morning fearfully and wonderfully made Sisters!’ A voice came from the podium, ‘the program is about to start! ‘
GOD BLESS YOU AS YOU WAIT.
