    so I think Dennis Macauley should sue for copyright infringement or something cause the bit about an ’embarrassing complaint ” lodged by a male colleague seems almost verbatim with a comment of his dt was posted earlier.

    Anyways I enjoyed this…., kept me company in the horrid monday traffic gridlock, ,atleast it wasn’t farcical this time .

      Well ideas for fiction don’t grow on trees, people often inspire them by their own experiences.
      Pink Panther you always stop when the suspense has peaked! Damn you! Now I have to wait for another week!!!
      What I like most about this series is that these people are based on typical archetypes, it’s like they exist and if you look around your clique of friends (that’s assuming you are not a depressed loner) chances are that you will find most of these archetypes.

    Good one….thoroughly enjoyed it. As for striking out on our own, that hit home…. I do crave a higher level of independence.

    Great piece as always sista Pinky, I also feel no pity or compassion when u hear a woman has suddenly found out her beloved husband actually savors the touch of a man, u actually want to stick out my tongue at them, for they are very instrumental to the creation of a very intolerant and homophobic society and therefore richly deserve the pain/heartache that comes with marrying a closeted gay man. hmm Pinky pls release us ASAP from all this suspense ooo

      I have a different view, I see the man and the woman both as victims of an intolerant system that forces a contraption upon them.

        @dennis: thank U! I’m puzzled as to how a woman should be blamed for marrying man who doesn’t seem out of d ordinary at all(and there are lots of gay men like that). I know a married man,very straight-acting, who calls his wife several times a day when he’s away from her,keeps his “liasons” far away from home, manages his time well,keeps his phones and laptops “clean”,provides for his family, makes love to his wife as regularly as he should(and apparently lays down d pipe good while doing it) etc. If he’s that good to a woman he’s been married to for some time,u can only imagine how charming he must hav been when he was still courting her. Now how would this woman hav been blamed for not suspecting that her husband was gay?

        *whispering* Chestie darling, you realize these are fictional points of view, yes? And even then, Biola and Declan are allowed their own opinion, no? 😀

      What are u guys even saying? How can u blame a woman for marrying a man? How is it her fault if she married a gay man? Dem dey write am for forehead?Except if d husband is obviously NOT “straight-acting”,u can’t blame such women in all cases. U guys talk as if u don’t know married gay guys who are veeeery “straight-acting” and who can keep secrets for Africa and can show d right amount of affection and attention for d woman in their lives. If a man has never given his fiancee reason to doubt his sexuality,how and why would she doubt it? U’re invariably say every woman should suspect her fiancee,even if he has given her absolutely no signs of anything untoward. Or mmaybe u. Hav a perspective that I don’t know?pls explain how such a woman can be blamed,or what she did to merit her fate.

        my take on this is that it is the society who have TAUGHT them to be like that.
        Chimamanda says aptly: “ We teach girls to shrink themselves, to
        make themselves smaller. We say to girls,
        you can have ambition, but not too much. You
        should aim to be successful, but not too
        successful. Otherwise, you would threaten the
        man. Because I am female, I am expected to
        aspire to marriage. I am expected to make my
        life choices always keeping in mind that
        marriage is the most important. Now marriage
        can be a source of joy and love and mutual
        support but why do we teach girls to aspire to
        marriage and we don’t teach boys the same?
        We raise girls to see each other as
        competitors not for jobs or accomplishments,
        which I think can be a good thing, but for the
        attention of men. We teach girls that they
        cannot be sexual beings in the way that boys
        are.

    What I like most about the series are your characters; they are round and earthy. From their mannerisms to their conversations… its very easy to relate to them and their stories either because they represent a part of us or someone we know. Makes the reading delightful. Well done.
    However, something that didn’t work for me was “lifting” an experience from another blog post and making it a sub-plot in this episode. I’m well aware that fiction is mostly based on reality. But because I was aware of a similar experience posted here prior to this entry the transition was jerky and made the fiction seem like it was lacking originality.
    Looking forward to reading how the drama plays out.

      I appreciate your enthusiasm for the series, Blaq. Thanks a lot. As for this ‘lifting’ of another blog post, that wasn’t the case. I’d always intended to write this episode. It is unfortunate that a kitodiariesian submitted a piece that echoed my storyline. But I promise you, there was no lifting. There’s Dennis’ writeup, and then there’s Declan’s story.
