Are you out there? It’s Chikodili. Again.

Hello Universe?! Can you hear me?

I have spent all my years on earth believing.

I was Mulder and I was Scully. And before that I waited patiently for Voltron to arrive, falling asleep each time, only to shake myself awake heart pounding in my throat with the fear that I had missed them. I knew my toys were moving around, living, breathing, having fun without me. Why did they keep still whenever I came into the room? Did they not trust me? Was there something lacking, some element that meant they could not let me see them as they truly were?

Nevertheless, I’m tired of waiting now. I know you’re out there. I don’t know what it is I need to do but I REFUSE to believe that I have to die first. Yes, yes, I know. We’re all energy and I might need to transcend this state in order to see, to know. But I do know. In this state, flawed, near blind, I know.

So quit it. Enough is enough. Surely, the eve of one’s X-tieth birthday more than qualifies for the ‘Something Special’ category? The planets have aligned. Don’t be selfish. Beam me up.

Oh and hi parallel-universe Chikodili, you total badass. Say hello to your wife for me.


When the going is good and smooth…

Somebody just made my day.

Last week when I wrote my Nostalgia post, I was in such a mood that memories were flooding all over me. I remembered this one time that I was eating some cold paw-paw cubes straight from the fridge, sitting in the middle of the living room in my vest and pants. I had come back from school and had lunch and it was one of those rare times that all of my one million siblings were no where to be found. This song came on:

I can never hear it without thinking about eating some cold paw paw on a hot afternoon.

I wondered last week what the name of the artist was and what the song was called and whether I could find it on mp3. Then life called and I forgot all about it.

Well, today I wonder no more for I have just been sent the music WITHOUT even asking for it or even wondering aloud. Just my brainwaves bouncing around the cosmos and I have been rewarded. Sometimes, the universe amazes me. There are no coincidences, you know?

Thank you Obioma Chikwendu.
