Ayanfe mi owon,

I’ll skip pleasantries because I’m sure you’re fine as always. I’ll rather delve into the meat of my write-up.

Ifemi, it’s being 7months since I last boiled water. It’s been 28 weeks since I last fried meat. It’s been 219 days since I exited the kitchen.

Work has been very demanding, and I have given it my all, because I don’t want to disappoint you. You remember all our talks about making money and building an empire. I’m doing exactly that. We spoke at length about giving our unborn children the very best, I’m directing all my strength towards achieving just that.

Ayanfe, I strive daily to make a difference. I fight with every ounce of strength, drop of blood, and pound of flesh. So, recently, I got an award, a sort of confirmation that our hard work is paying off. I need not remind you of every other one.

Ayanfe, I am pleased with you because you’ve made us proud every other time. Money is now trickling in just as we envisaged. You have learnt to diversify your income stream and it’s working. Day in, day out, our dreams are closer than they were years back.

But, I do hope you understand that my hands can no longer peel seasoning cubes, onion wraps nor detect any other taste apart from a finished soup. Maybe we’ll engage the services of a culinary expert for future purposes.

I sincerely hope that the above will pose no issue in the realization of our bliss.

Yours in Love,
