This my one month one post system sef na wa ….
Today’s post is a cocktail of all sorts of gist….
Another habit Nigerians have which amuses me (not annoy this time) is when you say hello to people and they respond “fine”. LOL My assumption for this behavourial pattern is because the people probably expect to be asked “how’re you” and have already programmed their brains to respond accordingly…
I’m still liking this Ibiluv’s blogging style. I’ll just keep copying ;) the worst she can call me is “copy catter” LOL
Had a tooth extraction few days back…. Still in pain and I’ve got a swollen face to show for my agonies… people seem to be staring at me a lot more now…. I imagine, they imagine I got beat up by my spouse…
For some days and even weeks now I’ve been trying to fathom what informs street traders on their choice of wares…. Even more strange to me is how these items are usually sold for a “season” and it seems by ALL street traders. Some items make sense(sort of) some I really rack my brain and wonder if they get any patronage at all. The seemingly sensible goods sold in traffic include:
The various variants of gala(packaged sausage rolls) i.e gala, beefie, meaty,rovers etc
Tissue for the car
Fan ice/ Yoghurt
Cuff links/silk knots
Fruit salad/pop corn
The odd/amusing ones include :
Cutlery /knife sets
Swimming gear for kids
ID card tags/card holders
I wonder what they’ll have in the coming days/weeks….
I went to one chassis office today. I was quite awed… you see I worked in a multi national for many years and after my ‘job loss” in 2009 I had to somewhat stoop to take this manager work in a less than multinational company…. Better than sitting at home doing nothing I guess but I miss the days of “AC in the loo, properly set up work stations, fone speaking colleagues” etc etc
***sighs**** God dey!!!!!
The boys are fine. T-lash has 4 teeth now and my walls are gradually being filled with graffiti thanks to Ayobami. He can now “write” you see and always feels a need to prove this ON MY WALLS lol…. We also read/count numbers of license plates on all cars we see …..
What a brilliant boy I mean how many of you can identify nos 1-9!!!!!!!!!!
