Contrary to what you might think, boyfriend day is not a day to celebrate all the boyfriends in the world, hell no! Even fathers day has been transformed to celebrate all the single mothers who have acted ‘father’ for their children. It usually all about them son, you just have to learn that from the word go because it is not about to end.
It started like a joke when girls in Rwathia Girls High School in Murang’a County, decided they wanted shorter skirts as their school uniforms, soon other schools followed suit and girl power became a whole different slogan for high school girls. It’s a new world for them, you dont just accept what is handed down to you, if it does not suit you question it and demand something better, after all: Who runs the world? Girls. As you grew up, high school girls demanded more, they figured out that parents day was not enough and wanted a specific day when their boyfriends would also visit them.
In my age, the closest one got to a girl in high school was through school outings. One had to manouvre his way to be picked for all kind of sports to get out and meet with the neigbouring school. If you got lucky you would be picked to represent whatever sport for your school and therefore get to various schools for competition. Of course it was a game of chance if her school showed up or even she herself showed up. The only consolation we had is that it kept us fit and healthy.
Luckily for your generation, the girls will push through with the Minister of Education to have a formal day to recognize you, nay, themselves. This is a day you shall live to dread.
I have told you several times that in secondary school, that Gothic girl is interested more with rock stars than you. However, I know that you shall seek to have a first hand experience in dating her. There you will be, having stolen my car, and begged your mother for some money and got it. Then you shall go shopping to buy her pizza or whatever else will be new in town. In your age creativity will be a foreign term,so no undying love expressed in sweet scented cards but probably a music player for her stashed with all her rock favourites. You shall have done her proud and I am sure she will be the envy of her friends. Congratulations on that.
The irony however of young relationships is that, you will be under immense pressure to grow up. Women demand that you grow up faster than them so that they can have someone who can offer them a shoulder to lean on. Please don’t confuse the shoulder thing by hitting the gym and having broader shoulders. It will be expected that you know how to treat a lady well and I know if you confide in your mother she will give you all this information. My advice is that take it slow, enjoy your youth and don’t put burden yourself with relationships in high school, because as your mother once told me: “It’s never that serious”.
Good luck son in your high school life, and read what I have written for you because I don’t want later on in life you come across this quote: “By the time a man realises that his father was right, he has a son who thinks he’s wrong” and shake your head.
