I’m a bit late (to say the least) but I just finished Americanah. I like the way it was written just as much as the story itself. Good read.


Boy- Are you a virgin?
Girl- Yes
Boy- Wow. Sorry.
Girl- Why are you apologising?
Boy- Is it a church thing?
Girl- No.
Boy- Oh..

(let me just say, I have nothing against virgins and nothing against people that aren’t)

Why should being a virgin warrant an apology? Why must it be a church thing? Why does it seem almost impossible that one could make that choice on their own? 😕😕
