Who doesn’t love a man that knows the difference between a swiss roll and croissants? Definitely not me! So my heart was in for a rude awakening when I bumped into the ‘perfect’ man in the bakery section of the supermarket. It was cheat day ( which day isn’t?) and I was hunting for the biggest swiss roll ( I am sorry not sorry diet) when he came and stood by me. He smelt like jasmine and freshly baked cinnamon cookies -perfection. I pretended to be occupied for a minute because I tend to be a little clumsy or rant off in Chinese when nervous. But it was cinnamon so I had to look because of FOMO. You guys, I looked up to the moistest chocolate cake in the history of deli trips🙈. My throat at that moment decided to be clogged with saliva- I wasn’t about to swallow this sight lest I stumble and slip on my diet. He smiled at me and he could have asked me for a million dollars and I would have sent him my niece’s monopoly money. He made his order and for all the swiss rolls in the world, I would have been his fresh cream coating😂 Eyy romantic lovers don’t get your hopes high, he didn’t say anything to me. I left with my cheat day snacks for a meeting at church and bam wham he was there. Dude was employed and had a side hustle not forgetting his food preferences that were awesome as well- I was signing up for this diet. He asked for my number and we got talking 😊. Dude apped and called ( like who calls anymore?) but I should have gone home when that black cat crossed the road. I am highly superstitious so black cats scare me (or cats in general). I thought my prayer life was on fleek so nothing bad was gonna happen. But something bad did happen? He found out I wasn’t 23 and he high tailed and forgot his dignity. Like who does that? I am sure I look put together 😂 I can’t possibly look like I have 7 great-grandchildren right? I was in disbelief 😢 Does one become an off layer when they pass 25? He ghosted me and I didn’t bother hitting send on any message? I seriously have concerns about my body and face now, am I ageing faster like Benjamin Button (the reverse that is) oh goodness. I wonder if he will ever explain why my age scared him👐✍ Could I already be an off-layer?
