Suspension belt (…..or suspenders)

I recently came across that name again. I remember how my brother was crazy about it whilst growing up. He’d throw tantrums and cry alot for it. That was all he ever wanted, year in, year out. For Christmas. For new year. For Easter. I want suspension belt! I want suspension belt! Person no go hear word for house! He didn’t even bother to find out the correct name of the thing he wanted so bad sef. Actually, even me just found out that the correct name is suspenders. But who cares anyways?
He always said, when I grow up, I’m going to buy myself lots and lots of it. What used to be so intriguing about it to his little mind, I can’t tell. However, I doubt that he’s still crazy about it nor that it will be in his first twenty fashion picks now. But it was everything at the time.
Fashion is ephemeral. Don’t sweat it if you can’t afford something today. By the time you can actually afford it, you may not even be that crazy about it anymore.
What’s the one thing you wanted throughout your childhood that you won’t even look twice at it now?

    Dah! There was this BMX bike I used to admire in a supermarket on my way to school. Smh! Every morning few blocks after we drove past it I’d picture the rest of my trip to school on that bile. It was kinda an in thing then, a lot of my school mates had bikes and used them to school. It was in fashion. During break periods, short and long break we’d all gather at the bike stand to look at who was sampling the latest. It used to be a tog between Raligue and BMX. If you had any other thing your bike would be abandoned and no attention to it and its ridder. Life is funny though. Here I was in a well air-conditioned government issued silver 504 estate car with licence plate AK-47. Back then the plates were black, long with silver writing. But with all that I would have given anything to roll to school in the streets with the wind in my hair if that was the case. Smh.

    I always wanted a small pink bicycle of my size but my parents made me share my brothers ugly bicycle with big tires. My dad actually promised to buy the small bicycle for me but he never did. I am going to buy myself a brand new chopper bike but it mustn’t be pink cos i really need the bike for classes and easy movement.

      Hehehe. Pink bicycle?
      Well, I always wanted to own a power bike. The one that its revving sound announces it’s arrival. Then I’ll kit up real nicely and ride round town.
      Dreams….
