knows a thing or two about meet-cutes. She’s Twitter’s resident “romcomoisseur,” New Girl stan
and general expert of love onscreen and in literature. If you’re a Black woman who’s seen When Harry Met Sally
more times than you can count, can recite every word of Love & Basketball,
and you’ve got a Twitter account, you probably follow the British-Nigerian author. Yes, I’m just describing myself. After years of watching Babalola’s follower count rise (Bolu hive is now almost 94K strong) thanks to her whip-smart takes, that time she went viral with her fake ex-boyfriend Michael B. Jordan
, and her hilarious live tweets
would be a lesser show without her), she’s become an Internet friend in my head. So, when we do “meet” virtually, it’s like catching up during act three instead of bumping into each other in a book store on page one.
