Short Story

It’s a dream come true. Not many people can boast of experiencing direct eye contact with a celebrity. Her smothering look could make hell freeze. It’s those two sockets carved into her face by the almighty. They have been filled with the most intriguing set of eyes on earth.

She has other admirable qualities but those eyes are mesmerizing to the point that I don’t quickly notice that she is also smiling at me. I am star-struck! As a full-blooded Nigerian, my best chance of getting any semblance to that uniqueness would be to purchase eye contacts. I don’t wear one but I have imagined how I would look with a blue contact lens: probably like an Ogbanje (Witch).

She is as dazzling as ever, this woman. I can’t seem to take my eyes off her, maybe I should make her my #WomanCrushWednesday this week. She looks like a million bucks in a pant suit and is playing the role of a mother in this current movie I’m watching, or not watching.

If you haven’t guessed yet, I’m locked up in a room viewing screenshots of Sarah Jessica Parker. She did look at me though, in my head. It happens all the time when you stare at a picture in a room and the eyes seem to follow you wherever you go, creepy. She played a distinguishing role as a mom in a 2011 movie: I Don’t Know How She Does It. I am yet to watch it even if I just made it seem like I was in the process of watching it. I’m still thinking about it.
