Grilled Fish
Picture: Healthy and Tasty Food Recipes

I used to have this friend and roomie who absolutely loved grilled fish. She love grilled fish so much that she practically had one every day. I always say that she made me love grilled fish because until I met her, grilled fish was a luxury. But when we became friends, it became a perfect finish to whatever kind of day I was having.

Thing is, she never bought the fish herself. She would hang out with male friends and return home with grilled fish. Sometimes however, the fish was brought to her at home.

By that time, I had morphed into my new personality and it was not unusual to find me at home reading a book or sleeping. This meant that the fish always came to me in our little room and though I would never have been so bold to ask a guy to buy me fish, I always ate it when it came. And for your information, it is NOT longer throat!

One day however, my friend was fighting with this steady admirer. The fight was so big that they were not on speaking terms. After finding out what went wrong, I tried to encourage her to settle her issues with him…and hey! It wasn’t because of the fish he always brought! She just kept moaning about how we wouldn’t eat fish that night. I was shocked by the concentration on the fish and not the relationship.

After a few hours, the guy called and she didn’t pick. He called again and again and she still didn’t pick. What happened next surprised me to no end. The guy sent an SMS, saying categorically that he wanted to take her out for fish. My girl piped up so quickly I was startled! She didn’t even pretend to wait for some time. She quickly called the guy, acted coy and asked when he was coming to pick her.

I was surprised but more disappointed by what I had seen. Did this girl just sell herself short for grilled fish?!

It got me thinking a lot and I have to admit there are many girls like that. These girls would do just about anything for fish! And when I say anything, I mean ANYTHING!

I have seen a lady who hugs a guy really tight when she has a grilled fish craving. She is this big-breasted girl who knows that this guy loves them big. When he sits down, she would lean over him with all that breast rubbing his head and shoulder, and when he turns, his face is almost buried in those breasts. She smiles and that is when she usually asks for her fish. I asked her why she did stuff like that. She told me that I was such a prude. That men were supposed to cater to her needs and she shouldn’t have to spend money on what she wants.

It still piques me that women continue to trade sexual favors for stuff like grilled fish! Like what the flying hell?!

When I want fish, I take out my ₦1,500 for the fish. And because I know I love fish so much, I make sure I space out the days I eat it so I am not bankrupt because of fish. Once in a while, I am invited to 'fish-out' but I only accept when the invitation comes from really close friends; and they are not many. I cannot imagine how I would feel if a man says, ‘No be Ramat. She is that grilled-fish girl. If you want to get her, buy her a grilled fish.’ I would literally be ashamed of myself if that ever happens to me.

This brings me to these questions.

GUYS: What do you think about girls who do just about anything for grilled fish?
GIRLS: Is it okay for ladies to trade favors (sexual or otherwise) for grilled fish?

I really want to know what you think.
