Dancing Queen (Miss BA)

I met you years ago… maybe in class, maybe after class… maybe in dance
I liked you from day one… your genuine smile, your engaging personality and openness… so much like me

We hung out with different people then, but whenever we ran into each other, we could listerally gist for hours about anything from boys to the price of gasoline in the city(strange especially seeing as we both can’t drive).

You’re so smart and beautiful and an absolute joy to be around
With the passing of time… I’ve gotten to see the real you
Past your gorgeous skin and constant smile… your obsession with the colour brown and sick dance moves…

… I see you

I used to think of you as a ‘when I see you’ friend… we talked and danced… and laughed and danced… and danced
But then we started talking… really talking…
We’d talk about the things that hurt… the things that made us smile… the tears(although I must mention that you look truly awful when you cry… lol), the people, the places… the memories.
You became more than a ‘when I see you’ friend, you became… a friend.
You contribute to my life in so many ways…(none of them monetary… lol)

I probably never told you this before... you're one of my closest friends cos I trust and love you like I do few others…
You go through so much yet you retain such beauty inside

You’re there for me when I need a friend… a shoulder to cry on… somebody I can count on… you go out of your way for me sometimes…
I love you completely


You’re unconventional and wacky and funny and gorgeous and problematic and have a great ass(I hope this doesn’t prompt you to start asking me out on romantic dates… cos I don’t play that… lol)

Miss BA aka Dancing Queen… in me you will always have a friend
Thanks for being the person that you are
I love you

Hey babes, great piece. An ode to true friendship. Love my best friend like that too with a similar history (except, can’t remember any dancing in ours). Can’t decide what to name to Christen her with in blogsville though…

Love…

Favoured Girl said...

Isn't it great to meet someone like that, a friend. To see how a friendship grows and trust builds.. so beautiful. Look at me getting overly sentimental here, Overwhelmed don't do that again.

My 2 cents said...

Aaaaw too sweet!
lol! at not playing that, true cos as insecure as females are, the moment you get all teary, they assume you tryna start sumthing!.
We really should celebrate our gilrfriends!

@Zaiprincesa: lol@ovee... Dang the nicknames just keep coming… I’m not sure if I like it or not… but if you carry me go some earring shopping… that will help me make up my mind sooner… lol

@butterfliesandstars: Thanks mami… I’m glad you have a friend like that… tell us more about her and maybe we’ll find a befitting name…

@Favoured Girl: It is a beautiful thing… she is a beautiful thing(lol that just makes her sound like a cute ring… but she is amazing though… love her to bits)

@My 2 cents: Yes we should celebrate our girlfriends… they’re there through the ups and downs…

@Kafo: I feel you…

@Set: Lol you’re hilarious… aunties to our kids… eshhh please I don’t even want to think about that babe… me? A kid? lol … that’d be something… but I guess years later when I meet that cute, tall boy with the british and Canadian accent and a lifetime membership to an international makossa club… I just might consider it..lol… yeah .. I’ll have fun… I have to tell you about the dresses I bought… they’re sooooo cute…

@Laspapi: You can sweetie… you most definitely can(although you might have to upgrade from that two-step move you have been doing since 1990… hehe… )

@36 inches: fine fine lady… kilonpop? You know I love you as well…

@Uzo: wow… amazing that I wasn’t thinking about the abba song when I named her that…. But trust me.. it’s so appropriate… that babe is just a ‘timebomb’ on the dancefloor…

londonnaijachic said...

this is soooooooooo lovely miss! I am sure she appreciates you too. Enjoy your weekend

chain reader said...

Hey babe,

Thought you were rid of me, didn't you? Well, halt the celebration already. I was in the woodwork, couldn't figure out what google did to my non existent blog, so i had to get a "new" user name.

How you doing, girl?

Everyone Loves a Naija Girl said...

Glad that you have a really good friend in someone like that. Great friends are hard to come by. That was a great post...now I feel the need to let some of my friends know how great they have been.

deilah said...

I tend to loose count of those who qualify as 'my friend' (gosh that word seems old and saggy it feels like it has lost its depth essence and value). i take a routine census every 3 months or so and chalk out expired and worn out ones... its always such a relief...

adumaadan - Blacktinkerbell said...

Dancing queen? Are you sure this isn't about me? You know I'm the dancing queen, dontcha?

Wish I had a friend like your dancing queen.

Mr.Fineboy said...
