I woke up to the possibility of a beautiful day. A friend was having a pool party and I was invited, my colleagues(for lack of a better word) were going to interview a radio presenter and I was asked to come along, my script writing lessons were finally about to begin and we were having yam for breakfast. I mean, nothing could go wrong right?? WRONG!!!
To make it very simple for the slowest of minds, today was and would probably be the worst day of my life ever. Sad, I can’t go into detail about what happened so please don’t bbm or DM me to ask ’cause it’ll be embarrassing for you when I don’t reply :). It was family related sha and there was a lot of crying involved and talk of being disowned. That’s besides the point though. I’m a lot better now just incase you were wondering and as usual, I’ll hunt for the positive parts of the experience and learn from that. Moving on….
Why exactly do we cry?? Please don’t say its ’cause we are sad. I mean why do we cry when we are sad? What exactly does it achieve?? I have been thinking about this since morning. I couldn’t come up with an answer so I’m throwing it back to you guys. I think its a very useless ability. It just makes you look terrible(case in point, that Nigerian actress with big lips that is always crying). It draws attention to you and you lose valuable body fluids. Its not as if after all the crying, you are assured of getting your way. Some parents even get angrier when you cry. I even checked the holy book and I didn’t find anything in there about crying. I just asked my cousin and she said “crying is a healing balm”. Hmmmm….that’s serious food for thought for me sha. There was no healing taking place today.
So seriously guys, why do we cry??
