Good morning people!!!
Something odd happened to me recently and I decided to share it with you guys. Before I do that though, I need you guys to think about something…
Imagine that someone walked up to you and shot you in the back of your head, killing you (God forbid). The shooter was masked so you didn’t see him and you don’t know who killed you, but it is your duty to show up as a ghost to give answers to the people you left behind. I don’t know about you guys, but as a ghost, I would have to appear to my sister. I woulda said my mum, but if I appeared to her as a ghost, she might yell at me for getting shot in the first place and getting blood stains on the expensive blouse she got me ( ._.)
So anyway, let’s say I lived in Miami at the time of this shooting and Lieutenant Horatio and Detective Calleigh (the CSI Miami people) are the ones who have to investigate the murder. They would have to ask my sister some questions and one of the first questions they would ask is, “Who do you think might want to harm this sexy beast your sister?”
Ideally my ghost should’ve already given my sister a list of all the possible suspects, including reasons why they might want me dead. The list would have;
– One or two or eight exes…
– Two frenemies…
– My former security guy… I had to fire the idiot some time ago.
– The Chicken Republic sausage roll seller that I was rude to a few weeks ago… why couldn’t she get off her lazy ass to get me change??
– People I owe money ( ._.)
– My dealer (who can also fall under ‘People I owe money’)
And maybe a few other names here and there, but that’s it. Horatio would then use this list to find my killer and the case would be closed!
But I realized recently, that I have no clue as to how long that list really is! I used to think that I treat people well (more or less). I don’t bang people’s husbands, I don’t mess with other people’s boyfriends (knowingly), I pay back money that I owe (except to my siblings) and I say ‘Please’ and ‘Thank you’. It sounds stupid, but I actually believed that I knew (almost) everybody that I had ever offended in one way or another. You would think that with all the Africa Magic movies I have watched that I would know better right?
So I have this friend… very vindictive and spiteful woman, but she has her good sides and she’s really not a bad person. Some weeks ago, I fell into a trap she had apparently set for me a long time ago! I’m sorry that I can’t say exactly what she did, but I imagine that it must have been fun for her, looking into her cauldron and watching me fumble. Thank God I know her well, and I know how she operates so it didn’t take me long to realize that I was the victim of one of her revenge plots… so I was able to save myself and I got out quickly, before she got to the fun part. And it wasn’t just that she was trying to get back at me for something, it was the humiliating way she tried to do it! So much time and patience must have gone into setting that trap.
Yeah, initially, I was hurt and I spent all of three minutes wondering what the hell I did to deserve such evil from her and when I did it (we haven’t seen in years!). But I’m over it now. I don’t care anymore…
However, the whole episode really got me thinking;
How many other people out there hate me because of something I knowingly/unknowingly did to them?
Is there enough paper in this world to list the number of people who want me dead?
If I was being electrocuted by a naked wire, how many people would turn off the circuit breaker and how many would plug their phones to my body to charge?
Do you think the producers will let me come back to life and become a recurring cast member in CSI Miami Season 11?
I suggest that you guys review your own ghost list… there might be some names that belong there that you don’t know about. Please, don’t wait till you get shot.
As you were.
