Prayer for my Unborn Children

May God bless and keep you always,
May your wishes all come true,
May you always do for others
And let others do for you.
May you build a ladder to the stars
And climb on every rung,
And may you stay forever young,
May you stay forever young. Continue reading “Prayer for my Unborn Children”

1 of Uncle Gboukzi’s twitter post

Uncle Olumide (@gboukzi), the fitfam master of Nigerian Twitter recently campaigned that people really listen to the lyrics of Olamide’s “Story for the gods” claiming that it promotes date-rape and should not be allowed in the public space.

I am totally against all shades of rape, from marital to statutory, and will support any effort to de-legitimize anything that promotes it in the any amount or degree. However, I must disagree with our venerable Uncle. Continue reading “Story for the gods: A defence”

Casanova 101 (4th lecture note)

I stole a page off a friend’s (I didn’t say it’s balo7 ooo) notebook given him in his new coaching class…hmmmm

The reason you are not a player is because you have fallen in love once to a girl, a love with deep emotion and high spiritual connection. Now, that the lady has refused you and you want to be a player, you cannot because in every woman, you see a bit of the girl you hopelessly, helplessly love. And the one you love, you cannot harm.

To be the true player you want, you must guard your heart jealously. You must be vigilant always, never letting anyone come close to it. There must be no love, no matter how small, for any girl, no matter how beautiful, brainy or both combined. Continue reading “Casanova 101 (4th lecture note)”

4 Reasons I won’t play WWTBAM

It’s another Friday and Who Wants To Be a Millionaire takes another stage on our television stations.
I started watching the show shortly after it started. Sometimes around 2004. I had a knack for general knowledge and I used to brag about how much I knew. I was young in my SS class. I made sure I didn’t miss the show every friday night. It was my chance to get my brain working and to find more things to add to my arsenal of knowledge. If there’s no light, I’ll go to the house of the neighbours that had their generator on. I’ll make sure I say the answer loud enough for everyone to hear while watching and I always got the comment that I was intelligent and I should go for the show. I enjoyed the admiration. I had dreams of winning the 5 million. Continue reading “4 Reasons I won’t play WWTBAM”

Sensible Speck in Senselessness

Gimme my horns……it has been a long time since I heard them.

So I was having a conversation with a 16 year old Igbo girl on thursday night. The conversation started with me asking about her admission into OAU and if she passed the entrance examination to her future, occupation and the inevitable marriage which was when she got agitated.

Okay, this girl is the last of 6 children born to parents both of who are from Imo state. The first 2 are male so she has had a lot of Nigerian culture in her system. I was being diplomatic and I asked her if she had a Boyfriend (sorry but I never pass off a chance to spread the word about STIs and unwanted pregnancy) after we had that conversation about condoms are zipping up, she said something curious.

Just Sand

Image

A philosophy professor stood before his class with some items on the table in front of him. When the class began, wordlessly he picked up a very large and empty mayonnaise jar and proceeded to fill it with rocks, about 2 inches in diameter.
He then asked the students if the jar was full. They agreed that it was.
So the professor then picked up a box of pebbles and poured them into the jar. He shook the jar lightly. The pebbles, of course, rolled into the open areas between the rocks.
He then asked the students again if the jar was full. They agreed it was. Continue reading “Just Sand”
