What will you think of a girl

eating sushi with chopsticks and
browsing on a pink-covered(?) laptop,
in the middle of the eating area of the lounge in a huge terminal?

Keep in my mind that this girl is shy and has a somewhat huge nappy hair-do, that people stare at, without pretense.

Ok! The girl is Yinkuslolo, me. The Chinese woman sitting across me asked where I got my sushi from and I told her I bought it yesterday, not in this airport. Her half-Chinese daughter is saddened by this news because she wants sushi. The woman looks at my laptop, hair, sushi, chopsticks laid by the side and says,
"This tells me a lot about you."

I wonder what that meant to her, what do you think?
To describe further, I have a smoothie, a carry-on bag, 'neck-pillow' and nothing else striking other than my dark skin.

But I can't figure out what her statement means. Oh well, she just left.

Bubbles said...

I guess it simply means
that you are very continental and diverse... je pense..

RocNaija said...

I get the feeling everyone's gonna answer complex ish, like..

"Pink shows your girly side with an apetite for trying new stuff.. OR you're a diverse bag of contradictions"

For all we know she was probably just thinking...
"Damn! How you gonna eat ALL that by yourself?!!!!"

that was a fun read, I guess the pink laptop signifies girlygirl type, the sushi ...chinese/japanese food freak, anything chinese rice, japanese sushi, chinese weave.lol

Just kidding...really interesting to know that few important things could mean a lot.

Watch you back YNC, you might be labelled something due to the few things you have one.lol

blogoratti said...

I guess we will never get to know what she meant by those words...a thousand and one possibilities though!

I doubt that she meant any harm. She was prolly just thinking that you're particular(picky) and very organized. - at least enuff to arrange for food for today, the day before so you wouldn't be stuck with gross airport food).
