Inside my head {2}

...Omonoba...
Our people say:
Yoruba: B’ópé títí, akólòlò yó pe "baba"
Eng: A stammerer would eventually say "father" - Yoruba proverb.
...........................................................................................................................................

* I have Jesus.

* Did the gods turn Enugu soil red out of anger or is Enugu soil lateritic?

* His eyes are on the sparrow, I know he watches me.

* I read somewhere that most Africans are overweight. I read elsewhere that most Africans are  starving. They - of the They Institute - cannot even make up their minds.

* Them: "Your English is very good, Oh my God. Wow, you speak good English for a non-native"
   Me: "You too".

* Two people who always have something to laugh about will make it through many things.

* Awon arugbo so pe, olodo lon korin. 'Won so pe olodo lon se film.  Few times, the old man sitting beneath the iroko tree sees nothing but it's bark.

* We may be shocked by the people we see or don't see in heaven. May we be there to be shocked, dear Lord.

* I want suya and bole/fish/pepper (Rivers State style) and zobo and Cabin BIS-keet and Rivers native soup and eko tutu and my mother's edikaikong soup and my father's groundnut soup. All I have is my stew.

* Hanging from my mother's wrapper, used to be the solution to all the problems in the world.

* Do not go into heaven uninvited. Live this great life, then attend your grand reception.

* I think 'mineral' sounds much better than 'pop' or 'soda'.

* I still find it hard to give or take with my left hand.

* Nigerian men have the worst and most entertaining pick up lines. 'Oh baby gyal, your boobs are showing.  Let me help you hide them'. Olodo.

  4. Dear NakedSha,
    I swear down! Those are just a sample of the somewhat politically correct thoughts in your head,
    Of course, we'd never get to read the ones that would earn you your blog a thousand comments...
