An open letter to the men of T&T
As you know, World Cup is about to start and
we women need to let you know certain things so
that we don't have to deal with what we know
will happen during this season. Contrary to popu-
lar male belief and wishes, women TOO watch the
World Cup and as such we felt it necessary to ex-
plain some guidelines to you:
• We love you. Why else would we put up with
you. However, you know that feeling you get
when Bhagwansingh's has a sale on tools?
We feel the same way about football. It's our
• We're accustomed to your particular brand of
deafness. Please also note that this will apply
to us as well when our team's match starts.
So please don't get churlish when we don't an-
swer when you can't find the keys that are AL-
WAYS in your pocket.
• We are accustomed to invasions. It's part of
the marriage vows. In sickness and in health,
with the baggage of your loud friends. And we
don't wait for World Cup for you to break
things. That's why we buy extra. We're accus-
• The T-Shirt we shall be wearing was bought
with our money. According to the laws of T&T,
this allows us to wear it when we want to.
However feel free to visit the neighbour if you
feel insecure about your team beating ours.
• Half the grocery bill is paid for by us, so that
means technically, only a quarter of the alcohol
is yours. Not to mention our friends drink wine,
the last time they drank Busta they were
going on school excursions.
• Conversations about things around the house
never involve you anyway unless it includes
the words "..put that over there please." And
the only time we go shopping during World
Cup is long before the match. This is so we
don't have to deal with you crazy drivers with
no concept of time who only NOW realised
the match starts in ten minutes. We can actu-
ally tell time.
• The television in the bedroom was your idea.
We actually like to sleep when night come.
You're the one up till three am watching En-
core Western channel in black and white on a
$5000 colour television. Anyway, if we left the
décor of the house to you we'd end up in
something looking like detritus from the con-
tents of Salvador Dali's stomach after a bad
case of food poisoning.
• The big screen television will henceforth be
called the World Cup Television. This means
when OUR match is on, the television in the
bedroom you always wanted is yours to use to
watch YOUR match. And we still don't believe
the excuse you gave us when you were scram-
bling to change the channel that night from
Lifetime claiming you don't know how it ended
• Contrary to popular belief and wants, the child
is HALF yours. This means pick up and drop-
ping schedules will maintain through the world
cup. Unless our team is playing. In which case
we're calling in our markers for all the other
times throughout the year when you begged
us to pick up the kids because you "busy" and
we had to leave what we're doing to pick up
• And finally, in the event of an emergency, we
have 911 on speed dial. The male ability to
completely panic is not unknown to us and we
have made allowances for this throughout our
lifetime. That's also why we have data plans. In
case of emergencies we can continue to watch
the match on our smart phones. We actually
The women of Trinidad and Tobago.
