Cravings with no consequences

Life in itself is flimsy, and so are our cravings. Sometimes we have this great urge to pamper ourselves. And this pampering becomes more satisfying, rewarding and eventful when there are no adverse consequences.

Take for instance, you crave icecream, you have money and can afford to buy the icecream, you get to the icecream stand, you get the exact flavour you crave, you finish the whole plate, and you go home, climb the scale, no extra pound, check your sugar level, and it’s still within permissible range.

Another instance, you have a crush, you approach your crush, coincidentally you’re your crush’s crush, you hit off very nicely and next thing both of you are cruising off together for a late lunch date. Happy and single in the real sense of it, with no one to answer to on return. You come home afterwards beaming with smile with another promised date in view.

Or you see a cloth you’ll like, not that you’d planned to buy clothes o, but you saw this particular one on a vendor’s page, you fell in love with it, you asked the price, it’s something you can afford, you made payment, dress arrives. It’s bespoke and your account isn’t looking like a tripod stand that lost one leg.You get the point abi?

As far as I’m concerned, there’s nothing more interesting than this feeling. Suddenly, everything seems so beautiful and bright. Life becomes more promising. And you burst out in songs of ecstasy. We should all be entitled to this feeling once in a while.

That ability to have what you want, (I say want, not need) when you want it, without having to worry about financial implications or societal interpretation or religious judgment or personal condemnation is the true definition of freedom. And until we ride on this pedestal, we can’t be true acclaimers of freedom.

    Why? Did it have to be ‘Icecream’? It would have been bread or akara or even….wetin them dey call that fruit, abi na fruit where them dey lick? It has this blackish velvety covering. It comes on small branches. I have no ideal its English name. Not so sure I really know how its pronounced properly in our language. Ukuk or ukop ?? Yes, why wasn’t it this ukuk or ukop??

      Hehehe, well most people are afraid of the fattening effect of cream
      BTW, i believe you’re referring to African TAMARINDS? That one is a great source of vitamin c. With my little knowledge of meds, you can’t have too much vitamins

    I think the greatest freedom is when you discover huge amount of money where you never expected in one of your trousers, books or lockers when you are extremely broke or maybe contemplating on how to segment engagements for your last set of coins.
    U no go even notice when you start humming some sweet melodies and greeting everyone you pass by in the streets cheerfully.

      Hahaha, that is if the money suffices for the needs in question. Such freedom could make you testify during a church service
