'The pinks lips syndrome as I termed it" was coined from my experience on the streets of Lagos about the desire to have one's lips to be pink in colour.
I find this syndrome so amusing really because of the term I coined it. Let me let you guys know that a syndrome is a complex of concurrent things. This explains why I have called the Pink lips Acquisition (lol) a syndrome because of its dominance of its occurrence in the suburbs of Lagos.
This is the thing, I want my lips to be pink because it makes me look fine or what ( my own thoughts of why people want it), so I get to the market and ask for a pink lips cream and I rub on my lips (I guess) and boom my pinks are lip, (ahhh sorry my lips are pink). And how does that make me feel, like JESUS or what.
There are so many things that are totally absurd, how will somebody be thinking of pink lips when there are lots of challenges ahead of you or tell me, can a cancer patient dying on a sick bed ever in a million times think of having pink lips (sorry I had to use that) but that is just the plain truth. Nigerians waste their time by taking cognisance of what makes zero sense.
Let me back down a little bit. Here was i coming back from work and taking a stroll around Computer Village, Ikeja, Lagos, Nigeria and suddenly started hearing from nowhere 'Bros get your pink lips here' I initially thought it was the name of the product until my sense came under terrible shock. I couldn't believe they were standing there asking for people who wanted Pink lips through the display of a small finger size plastic container which I believe contains the Pink lips cream.
To be factual, I think people are in dire need of pink lips if not those (sales executive) would not be standing there trying to hussle.
The funniest part of this story was like this. When I even went further towards where I was to board a bus, I saw other Pink lips cream sellers and one in particular was emphasizing 'Bros pink lips here' this time, was talking to another passer by. The PASSER BY's response was ' no I want BLACK LIPS' (trying to communicate to the seller on the flawless absurdity of such product and the unexplainable amazement why somebody will stand on the road as a sales executive of such product). Amidst the challenges facing the nation, some people have also included not having pink lips as a challenge, what a terrible situation.
Those are just my thoughts and I know some agree with me and others don't. If you do good and if you don't do me a favor, when selling the Pink lips cream please try getting brain washing detergent, you need it and you can come to me, I just sold one to you for free LOL.
BEFORE I FORGET, THE PINK LIPS SELLER RESPONDED 'YES, COME NOW, WE HAVE THAT ONE TOO'. lmao, I just couldn't believe my ears.
