The ability to say a lot with so little seems to be a skill that is very much needed in the social media world of today. What with twitter requiring just 140 characters to say a lot? For the purpose of this post, i am likening this short form of speech to a lady telling you just a short ‘no’ after a long toasting speech? Lol… Pardon me sha o, ladies, na musing i dey. I am guessing that the reason some nicer ladies try to explain their ‘no’ is so that their volume of speech matches the toasting volume of speech. Lol.. They try to achieve equal and opposite reaction.
I have been thinking – seriously, i have. Common guys, we shouldn’t have to put our nice ladies through that much stress. Having them give a return leg speech that is so long. They should just say ‘no’, or ‘yes’. So how about we shorten our toasting to 140-characters, something like one or two sentences? Instead of the letters, long pings, restaurants outings, and doings just to say stuff?
Imagine a situation where you don’t need to talk too much in sharing how you feel about her. Yeah, think about it. You really like some lady, and you are constructing your ‘speech’, how would you feel that the toast doesn’t go beyond 140-characters? If you feel me guys, say uhuh, uhuh, uhuh… Truthfully, this will reduce world hunger, don’t ask me how, because i don’t know.
I am thinking about it and I have come up with a very interesting template that may work, where you don’t have to say much and it isn’t disrespectful and more importantly *wink*, you give her the opportunity to say a simple ‘no’ without the burden of explaining it, and after all is over, everybody is happy, abi?
I will share my thoughts on it next week but while waiting on that, I’d love you own ideas on how we can make this 140-character toasting scenario happen.
